  • Catch or not? NFL clarifies why Steelers' touchdown call was reversed

Roethlisberger's magic on third down and Bell's steady play all night offset the loss of Antonio Brown, who left the game early the second quarter with a calf injury and was taken to the hospital.

Catch or not? NFL clarifies why Steelers' touchdown call was reversed
Refs gift Patriots game with this mind-boggling Steelers non-catch

Initially the star wideout had trouble putting weight on the affected leg, and after being checked out on the sideline he headed to the locker room for further evaluation. The failure to secure the catch by James at the goal line took a go-ahead touchdown off the board, which subsequently led to an interception on a pass that would not have been attempted had the margin been fewer than three.

Jazz center Rudy Gobert has MCL sprain in left knee, sources say
This is pretty good news in hindsight, because it didn't look good at all when Gobert first fell to the ground Friday night. Before that injury, he led the National Basketball Association with 2.5 blocks per game this season.

Starting at their own 23-yard line with just over two minutes left, Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski carried the team down the field and Dion Lewis capped it off with an eight-yard touchdown run.

He said the NEC decided the provincial executive committees (PECs) of KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State would not be allowed to vote on any matter.

Brown left in obvious pain after getting his left leg tangled up with a pair of New England defenders. He found pay dirt on the ground, ran for 117 yards and caught for 48 more as well to provide a spark when Antonio Brown went down early in the game. They need Hogan to get back and/or Britt to get caught up to speed more down the stretch. Gronkowski added a two-point conversion to give the Patriots a 27-24 lead with exactly a minute left. Ben Roethlisberger hit Jesse James for what appeared to be a 10-yard touchdown, but a review showed James lost possession. Roethlisberger faked a spike before trying to force a throw to Eli Rogers, and the ball was tipped and intercepted by Duron Harmon. The Steelers put together an impressive drive to take a 17-10 lead before halftime, but they obviously will miss Brown the rest of the way.

Roots of Great Red Spot of Jupiter revealed by Juno
The Juno probe has conducted eight scientific flybys over Jupiter, dipping its trajectory across the gas giant's upper atmosphere. On Monday, scientists said that Juno had discovered a new area of radiation just above the planet's atmosphere at the equator.

Keep that fact in mind, because after a 69-yard reception by JuJu Smith-Schuster came the 10-yard would-be go-ahead touchdown from James. Potentially losing home-field advantage throughout the playoffs hurts.
