FILE - In this Jan. 8, 2017, file photo, Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison (92) beats Miami Dolphins defensive end Terrence Fede (78) to pressure Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore (8) during the second half of an AFC Wild Card NFL football game in Pittsburgh. The Steelers haven’t been great at pressuring quarterbacks recently, or had much historical success against Brady.  But Brady will face a much healthier Steelers' pass rush in the AFC Championship on Sunday, than he did in Week 7’s win. Pittsburgh linebacker Ryan Shazier was returning from a knee injury; James Harrison played only 42 percent of the snaps and Bud Dupree was on injured reserve. (AP Photo/Fred Vuich, File)
