Steelers RB LeVeon Bell (not injury related) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week. Bell will be fine to face the Patriots. Unlike his quarterback, Bell has actually been 10% better (PPR) on the road. He has averaged 0.78 rush TD in nine road games over the last two seasons.

AFC Championship at New England
Another game, another record for Bell. He had 170 yards rushing last week to break his own team record, set just one week before. He has 59 carries for 337 yards in the playoffs, the most for a player in his first two postseason games in NFL history. Bell hasn't been as big a factor in the passing game, but that could change against New England. The Patriots allowed 102 receptions to running backs this season (second most in the NFL), and Bell had 10 catches against them - in addition to 81 yards rushing - putting up 140 total yards in their meeting earlier this season. Bill Belichick might want to take Bell away from the Steelers, but so has everyone else. It hasn't worked. Bell has 1,172 rushing yards in his past eight games. Keep on riding him.
