Chris Hogan plays big role in helping Patriots reach Super Bowl

Atlanta receiver Julio Jones fights off Packers corner Damarious Randall for a 73-yard touchdown during the NFC Championship Game Chris Hogan plays big role in helping Patriots reach Super Bowl

DeAngelo Williams had a touchdown run for Pittsburgh, but the Steelers rushed for just 54 yards. For the third time since 2001, New England topped Pittsburgh in the AFC title game, qualifying for their ninth Super Bowl in franchise history, eclipsing the record they previously shared with the Steelers.

Now the Pats will face the Atlanta Falcons with a chance to earn their fifth Super Bowl victory. Rog-er!" During the fourth quarter, the chants were, "Bra-dy!

"Malcolm was on him most of the night and Malcolm did a good job", head coach Bill Belichick said.

Fans are likely thrilled to watch their team reach the Super Bowl, but the team itself still has its sights on a higher goal. He wasn't flawless against the Houston Texans, but bounced back with 384 passing yards and three touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. Tailback LeGarrette Blount added a touchdown run.

Hogan has eight catches of at least 20 yards in New England's two playoff wins and needs just one more in the Super Bowl to tie Larry Fitzgerald (2008) and Greg Jennings (2010) for the most in a single postseason since 2000.

How did the Steelers not see that coming? "That's something if you're looking for a silver lining", Ben Roethlisberger said late Sunday night. The video received more than 900,000 views before being removed.

The Steelers couldn't muster up enough offense to keep up, especially after the loss of Le'Veon Bell in the first half to a groin injury.

Desperately seeking quick points, Roethlisberger was intercepted in the final quarter, though he did pick up a consolation 30-yard touchdown to Cobi Hamilton late one. At that point, Hogan had seven catches for 117 yards and the first multi-touchdown game of his four-year career. Duron Harmon and Patrick Chung combined to bring down Jesse James at the 1-yard line after a 19-yard touchdown had just been called back. Bryant made 34 of his 37 field-goal attempts and was 56-for-57 on extra points, but he missed one Sunday. The coaching staff is not only great at tailoring game plans to specific opponents but the players are so good at executing these gameplans thanks to Belichick's relentless attention to detail.

NOTES: Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell returned after missing two games with a knee injury, with WR Michael Floyd inactive to make room.

The Patriots then forced the game's first turnover when Pittsburgh wide receiver Eli Rogers fumbled. Brady moved to his left from the pocket and had open field in front of him but had no intention of running. The throw and catch were easy from there. Let's hope it turns out much better than most of the postseason matchups the National Football League has provided this year.

After a prolonged investigation into Tom Brady's purported role in the January 2016 DeflateGate scandal, Commissioner Goodell suspended Tom Brady for the first four games of the 2015-16 season.
