The Patriots needed to blitz Mark Sanchez on Sunday, and they didn't. Will the Steelers make the same mistake? And will the Jets play the same heavy coverage-oriented defense against Ben Roethlisberger that they played against Tom Brady?

Or as Bill Simmons calls it, "recovering Patriots fan edition." We break down the Pats loss and the conference championships.

Forward to 28:00 to skip to the start of my conversation with Bill, and 34:00 if you want to skip the Patriots talk.
