Provocative piece here at Deadspin by Pittsburgh writer Sean Conboy. It is, indeed, very hard to square the words of current players -- many of whom admit they try to get back into games despite concussion symptoms -- with those lawsuits from former players, some of whom only retired three or four year ago. At this point we know there's a problem. What happens five years down the line when you have a player who sues the NFL over concussions even though during his playing career he made statements like those Troy Polamalu made recently?

A Super Bowl berth could be decided by the Patriots' ability to contain Le'Veon Bell -- and by Pittsburgh's ability to avoid their usual defensive breakdowns against New England.
