Patriots’ Defense Limits Big Steelers Plays In AFC Championship Win


The New England Patriots’ defense proved its doubters wrong Sunday in the AFC Championship Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The unit shut down the high-powered Steelers offense and held it to just 17 points (seven of which came on a garbage-time touchdown). The Patriots also allowed just two plays of 20 yards or more in a 36-17 win that sealed their Super Bowl LI berth.
