Patriots humbled by surging Steelers



FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Upon further review, the New England Patriots see there is a lot of work left to do if they are to contend for the AFC championship.

The Patriots watched video Monday of a 25-17 loss at Pittsburgh the day before. And the Patriots didn’t look any better the second time around.

New England fell behind 10-0 and was never able to complete the comeback. The Patriots ran just three plays of offense in the first quarter and the weary defense couldn’t stop the Steelers.

New England safety Patrick Chung says Monday’s video sessions showed that the Patriots still played a good game, but Pittsburgh played a better one.
