Thermal imaging from space will show brilliant colors emanating from Pittsburgh next Sunday.
The coaches already are giving off serious heat.
Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone and Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin fumed after ugly losses Sunday afternoon. Their teams will square off this week at Heinz Field.
The Bills lost despite gaining 470 yards because the Kansas City Chiefs scored two defensive touchdowns. The Steelers surrendered a club-record 55 points and 610 yards to the New England Patriots.
"I'm freaking going to ... I'm pissed," Marrone said. "I'm going to use that type of energy, and I'm going to go home. I'm not going to talk to anybody. I'm just going to shut it down, be by myself. I'm not going to pet my dog. I'm going to get fired up, and I'm going to come to work tomorrow. I'm going to watch this film.
"I'm going to be a pro. I'm going to be a man. I'm just going to look at it. What can we do better? How do we coach things better situationally? What can I do first? What can the coaches do second?"
The Steelers trailed the Patriots by 14 points at halftime but tied the game in the third quarter. The Patriots outscored the Steelers, 28-7, in the fourth quarter.
Tomlin was asked if he was more disappointed or perplexed by his team's performance.
"I am angry, disappointed," Tomlin said. "We don't have time for perplexed. You know, we are capable and better than that. We've got to be better than that. We weren't, so we are going to fix it."
Tomlin indicated players would lose jobs this week.
"Not good enough, not good enough," Tomlin said. "We are going to comb through this with a fine tooth comb, as we should. And those people who are lacking effort won't be playing. It's just that simple."
