    Felger: Who’s your number one star in this game, Greg?

    Greg Bedard: Matthew Judon. Three Total quarterback pressure. Six Impactful plays and made a hell of a play on that final third down where, that’s not even his guy. He realized and he talked about in the press conference afterwards, I saw the play watching it live, I was like, “Oh crap, they’re going to run a pick play on Judon for a well root and it’s going to be a big play”, but he adjusted. He went with the running back down the field, carried him down the field, the Steelers didn’t exactly do a pick play, didn’t execute well, but Judon was there in cover for Ja’Whaun Bentley, who couldn’t get over and make that play. And that’s a play Judon, he screwed up a few times last year, so great job by him.

    Felger: Second?

    Greg Bedard: Agholor. Dynamic. Huge play. Pulled it out of his rear end really saved the Patriots and it was just a humongous play going into halftime.

    Felger: Number three?

    Greg Bedard: Trent Brown. After, you know, really shaky week one, you could question his buy-in and really give a crap level. After that week one loss to the Dolphins, you really wanted to see how he bounced back in this game because he could’ve just folded up his tent and you could’ve been like, “Oh, crap, they’re in trouble”. I had him for just one mistake in that game, on that interception getting fooled. Other than that, perfect in the game. I thought he played terrific.

    Felger: Okay, let’s get to the Good Stuff. Three down. Who’s your number one dud for the game, Greg?

    Greg Bedard: Isaiah Wynn. He allowed six and a half pressures, five and a half were in the first half. If you’re looking for one person who is responsible for getting Mac Jones sped up in that game, it was Wynn. I don’t think he was bad overall. But you know Highsmith got the got the best of them in this one.

    Felger: Number Two?

    Greg Bedard: Jake Bailey. He had two opportunites to pin the Steelers deep.

    Felger: I’m glad you mentioned this. That second touchback should’ve hurt them.

    Greg Bedard: It should’ve. I mean, he had two toucbacks when he didn’t need to, and he had a 31.5 net average. That’s horrendous.
