The week has started with a bang. After Sunday’s win over the Chiefs in the AFC divisional playoffs Sunday night, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin’s postgame speech was caught on Facebook Live by wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Cleveland’s offense never clicked better than it did during the first quarter against the Ravens in its Week 2 home opener. McCown connected with Corey Coleman on two touchdown passes and that proficient passing opened up the run game, which saw Isaiah Crowell break off his longest run of the season, an 85-yarder, in a first quarter that ended with Cleveland ahead, 20-2. McCown was 6-for-8 for 92 yards in the best quarter of the Browns’ season.
Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley was the unanimous choice for AFC North Rookie of the Year by the four reporters covering the division for ESPN.com.

Even the Falcons were here back in 2012.
The Green Bay Packers advanced to the NFC Championship Game with a 34-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

If there’s anything Jerry Jones loves more than talking, it might be Tony Romo. So the Cowboys owner looked up during his postgame press conference as his soon-to-be former quarterback walked out of the locker room, knowing it was probably the last time he’d do so.
The Kansas City Chiefs appeared to tie Sunday's AFC Divisional Round game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a two-point conversion in the closing minutes, but it was called back for a holding penalty on offensive lineman Eric Fisher.
