In Week 15 of the NFL every team has injury issues.
“It is December football; everyone is where they are at physically – nobody is going to be 100-percent – nobody,” said Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh.
For instance, the entire Cincinnati Bengals starting linebacking corps is sidelined this week.
Miami anthem-kneeler, safety Michael Thomas, will miss the Dolphins-Bills game with a knee injury, so won’t be able to kneel or play.
There are a lot of games with playoff implications this week.
Here is a look at all of Sunday’s NFL action:
New England Patriots (10-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2)
Great match-up in the AFC between the two best teams in the conference.
The Patriots are coming off a loss to Miami where Tom Brady was 0-11 on third down. You see a stat like that from the legendary Patriots QB as often as a unicorn. So expect this all-time great player to make up for it this week. Also helping him bounce back from that underwhelming performance is the return of star tight end Rob Gronkowski from a suspension.
The Patriots will be without one of their best run defenders – DT Alan Branch – so this could help Steelers tailback Le’Veon Bell have a big day.
