Shad Khan on making playoffs: Mind-blowing

When Shad Khan bought the Jaguars during the 2011 season, they were on their way to missing the playoffs for the fourth straight year.

Steelers up 17-10 at halftime

The Steelers probably won’t have wide receiver Antonio Brown back in the lineup against the Patriots after he injured his calf, but they were able to secure a halftime lead late in the second quarter without his help.

NFL believes Michael Bennett was indeed trying to get the ball

As MDS recently explained it, the NFL needs to explain why Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett wasn’t fined or suspended for diving at the knees of Jaguars center Brandon Linder.

Joe Haden, Chris Hogan inactive for Steelers-Patriots

The Steelers will have to wait at least another week for cornerback Joe Haden‘s return to the lineup.
