Steelers vs. Patriots AFC Championship official prediction

Our question is, what will the Super Bowl LI match-up be?

At this stage, it would appear that Brady was harshly treated in that whole affair so it must serve as motivation to pick up a fifth ring in two weekends time, just to have the NFL Commissioner hand him the trophy.

Most recent meeting: October 23: Patriots 27, Steelers 16.

Sorry, Steelers fans. Of all the championship contenders, you would wind up paying the most to attend this year's Super Bowl in Houston if your team wins its playoff game on Sunday. Brady has already appeared in a record six Super Bowls, and if he can get back and win, he could become the first quarterback ever to win five. The Patriots are 15-3 all-time in home playoff games under Belichick, and that was one of their losses.

The Pittsburgh Steelers (13-5) were able to upset the Kansas City Chiefs as 2.5-point road underdogs on the National Football League point spreads at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark without scoring a touchdown in last Sunday's divisional playoff game.

"I don't care", linebacker Dont'a Hightower said on Boston radio station WEEI on Monday. "It's the championship game". They are the dragon. They're more balanced, they're better.

Luckily, they have guys who have been there before.

The Steelers defense can rush the passer, but they are not a great cover group. Hometown newspaper Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has positioned the game as a battle for the ages - if those ages are a long time ago.

That seems impressive - and without a doubt, the Steelers would be high on anyone's list over the last few months - but the bar isn't really all that high.

Down 18 points, Pittsburgh's seventh-ranked scoring offense suddenly came to life and scored two straight touchdowns. When you factor in the regular season, the Patriots are 4-1 at home against the Steelers, with an average score of 31.4-22.4. Toomey. "While it's hard to play in Foxborough in January, Coach Tomlin has the Steelers on a roll and they are prepared to exact revenge on their AFC nemesis".

So am I saying they are going to win? The Patriots won the game, 28-21.

"You let them go through it", said Gay.

The Steelers have maintained a business as usual approach all week, handling things the way they have every other week of the season. The Steelers won his first 14 starts before losing to the Patriots in the AFC Championship at the end of the 2004 season. "So, you finally get out there and play, because you feel like you've built up the whole week on the practice field and you've talked about a lot of situations and you've just got to see how they play out". I think that we're growing by leaps and bounds week in and week out. The reshuffling led to a more cohesive corner group that slotted each player in a spot best suited to his skill set.

Dont'a Hightower took the badmouthing from the Steelers' Mike Tomlin in stride. But incidences such as this, don't help him in that regard. Bell has been a monster the second half of the season, rushing for over 100 yards in seven of his last eight games, including 170 and 167, respectively, in two playoff games. I know the older guys did that when I first got here, too. "I definitely can't turn into a rookie now". I am sure he doesn't want that to be his story.

The Patriots will look to ride Brady to victory, who happens to be 9-2 in his career against the Steelers.
