Le'Veon Bell doesn't want to leave Pittsburgh. Is there a run defense in the NFL Playoffs that can hold Bell under a 100 yards? But Harrison drove Ajayi into Moore, and when the two collided Moore fumbled. That touchdown extended Pittsburgh lead to 14-0.

The Dolphins struggled to keep pace throughout the game. The Dolphins seemed flustered and over-matched with a daunting comeback attempt ahead of them. He went through the NFL's "concussion protocol" and was deemed OK to return to action.

Moore was scrambling when Dupree hit him helmet first square in the jaw. They can dominate games on the ground, especially if the weather becomes an issue. In the cold on Sunday, the Pittsburgh missed an extra point. The former Oregon State star has played very well, throwing eight touchdown passes and three interceptions in the three games he has started.

The Steelers learned a hard lesson in their loss to the Miami Dolphins earlier this season. So will momentum; the Pack has won six games in a row, including three games against playoff teams. A review of a 26-yard touchdown run was overturned because Bell was tackled just short of the goal line.

The notion that the Pittsburgh Steelers are the primary threat to the top-seeded New England Patriots in the AFC playoffs was reinforced quickly and emphatically Sunday at frigid Heinz Field. Different knee injuries sidelined Bell for the Steelers' unsuccessful playoff forays in 2014 and 2015.

In all, the Steelers have 258 yards total offense and three touchdowns. In the rematch, he was limited to 33 yards on 16 carries.

Ben Roethlisberger led the Steelers to a win Sunday.

Trump wants taxpayers to pay for the US-Mexico border wall
The US Congress is exploring ways to pay for a southern border wall, with payment to be sought from Mexico later. Trump said during the campaign that the cost for building a border wall would be about $12 billion.

On Pittsburgh's first possession of the game, Roethlisberger capped off a five-play, 85-yard drive with a 50-yard touchdown pass to Brown on a screen.

Roethisberger is 7-for-7 for 162 yds and two touchdown passes to Brown. Brown finished the regular-season second in the National Football League with 106 catches, and he was a handful for the Dolphins on Sunday.

Whereas Ajayi caught 27 passes for 151 yards (a 5.6-yard average) and zero touchdowns in 2016, Bell snagged nearly three times as many, 75, for 616 yards (an 8.2-yard average) and two TDs. Roethlisberger found Brown running across the middle, and the veteran receiver ran past defenders for the long touchdown. Though we may not see this side of the ball gel quite like it did when Troy Polamalu was starring in the Pittsburgh defensive backfield, Pittsburgh went out and punched Miami in the mouth on defense Sunday.

Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi was penalized 15 yards-equivalent to the penalty Dupree received-for defending his quarterback and getting into a minor scuffle after the play. Steelers fans of course know that what is important now is the team having success in the playoffs.

The Dolphins ruled out Ryan Tannehill earlier in the week and now starting cornerback Byron Maxwell will also be out of today's game with an ankle injury.

The Packers are favored by four against the Giants. Right now, Aaron Rodgers is on fire, and they're in Green Bay.
