Antonio Brown out after helped off field with calf injury

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he does not expect Antonio Brown (calf) to return Week 15 against the Patriots.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown gave Steelers fans at Heinz Field and across the nation a scare when he had to be helped off of the field and later into the locker room. 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. On the next play, Brady hit Brandin Cooks along the left sideline for a 43-yard pass to the 7 that set up Rex Burkhead's 1-yard run for a 7-0 lead.

The Steelers linebacker suffered a season-ending back injury against the Bengals in Week 13 and has been on the minds of his co-workers since being carted off the field against the Bengals. The Steelers owned third down and held a 35:07 to 24:53 time-of-possession edge in the game, keeping the ball away from Tom Brady and the New England offense.

Four dead as train collides with French school bus
A witness who was on the train, named as Barbara, said "it was a very violent crash - it seemed as if the train would derail". The bus was struck by the train in Millas about 18 kilometres west of the city of Perpignan, close to the Spanish border.

We have seen many "is it a catch?" controversies through the years.

Brady repeatedly turned to Gronk on the Patriots' final scoring drive, connecting over the middle for back-to-back 26-yarders and then a 17-yarder to the Steelers' 8. Two plays later Ben Roethelisberger fake-spiked it and ended up throwing an interception in the end zone to Duron Harmon. Smith-Schuster, the ebullient rookie, caught six passes for 114 yards, including a 69-yard catch-and-run that put the Steelers in position to at least tie it.

With Brown done for the day, the Steelers are again be without one of their best players when facing off against the Patriots. It was a costly loss, one that saw the top seed and home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs stolen in the final seconds.
