-With his concussion suffered early during the Sunday night game, the streak of consecutive games made with at least one catch ended for Steelers WR Hines Ward. It ends at 186, the third-best streak in NFL history.

-Ravens K Billy Cundiff blasted three touchbacks Sunday. That gives him 25 on the season (a 58.1 percent success rate on his kickoffs), the top mark in the NFL. He’s already destroyed the club record (15 by Matt Stovall in 2007).

-Cowboys WR Dez Bryant had three catches for 104 yards, the most he’s ever produced in his career. Since Jon Kitna replaced the injured Tony Romo at QB four games ago, Bryant has 23 catches for 328 yards and four touchdowns.

-Seahawks WR Mike Williams had 11 catches for a career-high 145 yards in Seattle’s win against the Cardinals. He did it with a broken finger suffered in practice four days earlier.

-Chiefs QB Matt Cassel threw for 469 yards, the second-highest single-game total in Kansas City history (Elvis Grbac had 504 yards in 2000). The Chiefs still lost.

-For the first time since 1941, two brothers are NFL punters at the same time. Kansas City’s Dustin Colquitt faced Denver’s Britton Colquitt on Sunday, and Dustin’s average (43.3 yards) beat Britton’s average (41.0). The Chiefs still lost.

-When Manny Pacquiao destroyed Antonio Margarito in a unanimous decision in Dallas on Saturday, it was his second win of the year at Cowboys Stadium (he beat Joshua Clottey there in March). The Cowboys, meanwhile, have only one win at home this season.

-Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught five passes for 72 yards and three touchdowns in helping beat the Steelers. Which was a marked improvement over last week when he dropped passes, muffed up a kickoff return and fumbled deep in Browns territory to help hand Cleveland the win.

-Of the 50 passes tossed by Atlanta’s Matt Ryan, more than half (27) were targeted for either Roddy White or Michael Jenkins.

-From 2007-09, Bengals RB Cedric Benson combined for only three fumbles. This season alone, he’s got three.

-For the first time this season, Jets RB Shonn Greene outgained LaDainian Tomlinson on the ground. Greene had 72 yards on 20 carries, while Tomlinson carried the ball 18 times for 57 yards.

-The Jets dominated the time of possession vs. Cleveland (47:08 to 27:36) but needed until the very end of overtime to squeak out the win.

-Since his big coming-out party in Week 2 (17 carries, nine catches, 232 total yards, three TDs), Lions rookie RB Jahvid Best hasn’t scored a TD and has gained more than 50 yards on the ground just one time. On Sunday, he had 17 carries for 35 yards.

-Even with four players throwing the ball Sunday (Chad Pennington, Chad Henne, Tyler Thigpen and Brandon Marshall) the final passing stats for Miami were pretty good. The four combined to complete 24 of 37 passes for 323 yards, two touchdowns, one INT and a passer rating of 99.3.

-This is a stat that will make Pete Prisco gnash his teeth. In the past two games, Jaguars QB David Garrard has completed 41 of 52 passes for 602 yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions. Two weeks ago, his passer rating was 157.8. On Sunday, it was 134.1.

-Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe caught 13 passes for 186 yards and two scores. Much of that production, though, came in garbage time when the game was already lost.

-Mike Goodson became the first Panthers RB to rush for at least 100 yards this season. Not Jonathan Stewart, not DeAngelo Williams. Mike Goodson.

-Buccaneers RB LaGarrette Blount has only played in six games this season. In his past four, he’s rushed 65 times for 329 yards and three touchdowns.

Sorry - I'm a Steeler fan, but this is just now how the game is played.  There ought to be a fine for the helmet to helmet, but if a player drops a pass that's ruled a catch, it's your job as a coach to challenge it.  Especially if the catch creates momentum that will let a team back into it after going down a couple of scores.  Belichick doesn't owe anything to Hines Ward.  He owes his livelihood to the NE Patriots.

It could be that he is a Pats fan (like me) or it could be that the Steelers just got their butts kicked by a better team. After all, the Pats have had their number for a few years now so this really shouldn't have been a big surprise.

Man, I'm a die hard Steeler fan just like yourself, and while I do agree with some of what you say, but we lost that game fair and square. I mean, the Patriots beat us in just about all phases of the game. Our zone blitz defense was getting exploited underneath, our front 7 got barely any penetration to even lay a finger on Brady, our offense couldn't generate any real offensive game to get some yards and convert some 3rd downs, our secondary really blew it, and I put a lot of emphasis on William Gay because he get burned for 2 TD's that I can think of at the moment. With Aaron Smith out, it's a big impact. When Hines Ward went down, that was a big impact too.

Bottom line, the refs did a fine job. They aren't going to be able to see everything, and sometimes bad calls can happen (not that I can really think of any in that game at the moment), but that's just part of the game. You overcome adversity in that form and win. Rarely ever does refs really have a REALISTIC impact on the outcome of the game.

So hey, tip your hats to the Patriots, they beat us plain and simple. They had the better game plan, the better team that night.

Am I seriously reading Steelers fans whining that the NFL has it in for them?  This has been one of the most coddled teams in the league for years, just ask Seattle.  Hines Ward is an excellent player but he's also a head-hunting POS so I'm not losing any sleep over the shot he took.  And do you really expect Bill Belichick to just let a dropped pass slide so that HW can keep his streak going?

Who is Matt Stovall?  Did he play on the same team as that really great linebacker, #52 Ray Lucas?  I think #20 Ed Schneed was on that team too.  Really good guys, great team.  Rod Heap also... and Darrell Duggs.  Fantastic.
