The New England Patriots made the curious decision to receive the opening kick off in the AFC Championship against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Patriots were validated in their decision after running up an early 10-0 lead, highlighted by an easy touchdown pass from QB Tom Brady to WR Chris Hogan.
The Steelers apparently forgot to cover Hogan, who sat uncovered in the back of the end zone for about an hour.

Brady found Hogan to give the Patriots a touchdown and K Stephen Gostkowski connected on the extra point to give the Patriots an early 10-0 lead.
