AFC Championship Game: New England Patriots 36, PIttsburgh Steelers 17 (2-0) (16-2) (Sunday, January 22, 2017)

*dances* *twirls* *dips* *sashays*

The Pats are on to the Super Bowl!!! :)

It's the 9th time in franchise history and the 7th under Brady/Belichick. It was a GREAT game!

The first half was a bit tight, but the Steelers couldn't punch the ball into the endzone. The Pats weren't flawless but they had a comfortable lead by halftime and never looked back. Chris Hogan was incredible and so was Julian Edelman in the receiving corps. The O-line did its job. Dion Lewis scampered around and LeGarrette Blount bulled his way forward, carrying half the Steelers' DBs with him! Kicker Gostkowski did miss an extra point (after a steady second half of the season) so that's a tad worrisome, but hopefully he won't do so again in the Super Bowl. Otherwise he was right on the money.

Tom was fantastic. He was sharp and shining, though he will hear about his fumble on a quarterback sneak. Luckily he retained possession of the ball! Tsk, tsk, Tommy!

It became blow-out territory by the second half and was a game in which Pats fans didn't have to hold their breath 'til the last second! :)

We're on to Atlanta (in Houston)! The Falcons crushed the Packers in their Championship Game, and it's gonna be tough. Atlanta has a stout defense and great offense, but bring it on! Tom and the Patriots are going for Ring No. 5!

Oh, Marty Bennett! Dancing with the cheerleaders after the game. Sign this guy up! :)

Gillette Stadium rang with cheers of "Brady, Brady, Brady!" and "Where's Roger?" as the Commish once again showed his cowardice by not showing up.

We are enjoying this run for we shall not see its like again.

One for the thumb!

Blowout wins in elimination games are always my favorite.

I for one would love to see a Patriots blow-out in the Super Bowl just once! My nerves can't take these last-minute wins anymore! :)

I nearly had a heart attack against Seattle!

That was a terrible moment...until it wasn't. :)

There seems to be an energy with this year's team that I haven't felt in quite awhile. I was ecstatic to see them win. And, I couldn't believe beyond the idiot with the fire alarm, that the NFL/Rooney fam couldn't come up with a stupid scandal. I figured that they would pull some crap.

Now, onto Atlanta. The Falcons are hungry, obliterating Green Bay with ease last Sunday. I've been racking my brain trying to figure the last time NE played them and just can't recall. But I've got confidence in the Coach and the Dynamic Duo(Patricia/McDaniel). The key is in the defense, as the Falcon's offense is mighty. :)

Yeah, surprised Tomlin didn't cry about that fire alarm, which is done frequently at hotels. The Pats suffered it twice before SB XLII. This current guy was drunk and did it on a dare. Rhodes scholar!

Last time Pats played Atlanta was 2013. I like the defense as stopper. Defense wins championships! :)
