A preview of the AFC Championship Game matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots:

When: Sunday, 6:40 p.m. ET (CBS)

Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass.

Line: Patriots favored by 4½

1. Strength on strength: During Pittsburgh’s nine-game winning streak, the offense has excelled. Behind the QB-RB-WR trifecta of Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown, the Steelers have scored an average of 25.9 points since Week 11. New England’s defense, meanwhile, may not wow you with star power, but it led the NFL in the regular season in scoring (15.6 points per game allowed). Specifically, the matchups between Patriots corner Malcolm Butler and Brown, and linebacker Dont’a Hightower and Bell are worth watching.

2. Rematch with one Big (Ben) tweak: Don’t put too much stock in New England’s 27-16 Week 7 victory played in Heinz Field. Roethlisberger suffered a torn meniscus the week before against the Miami Dolphins and underwent a minor procedure to fix the issue. Backup Landry Jones started in his place, and the Pittsburgh offense just wasn’t the same.

3. Emerging X-factor: With tight end Rob Gronkowski out for the remainder of the season after undergoing back surgery, running back Dion Lewis has emerged as New England’s toughest matchup problem for opposing defenses. Against the Houston Texans in the divisional round, he became the first player in postseason history to score touchdowns on a kick return, a reception, and a rush in the same game. Lewis is shifty, quick and probably can’t be left in man-to-man coverage. Pittsburgh, however, has very athletic inside linebackers in Ryan Shazier and Lawrence Timmons, so the Steelers should be able to get creative in their game plan against Lewis.

Steelers V Chiefs

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 300 yards and five touchdowns, while running back Le’Veon Bell, just returning following a three-game suspension, rushed for 144 yards, in a 43-14 drubbing of the Chiefs at Heinz Field back on October 2. That was a long time ago, obviously, but is it long enough to make up 29 points? Kansas City is mostly average statistically–including 24th, overall and 26th against the run. What that should tell you is that, as long as Pittsburgh can protect the football, yards and points should be there for the taking.

As for the defense, again, it was a long time ago, but Pittsburgh’s pass rush, which barely registered a pulse over the first three games, sacked quarterback Alex Smith four times on October 2. Much like their defense, the Chiefs offense, ranked 20th, overall, isn’t much to write home about. Sure, there are weapons in all-world tight end Travis Kelce, along with Hill, who also caught 61 passes for 593 yards as a multi-faceted Slash-like threat, but Kansas City’s offense doesn’t possess enough fire power to blow the Steelers out.

Therefore, as long as the Steelers improving defense tackles in the open field and perhaps manages a turnover or two, this could be the recipe for a big playoff road victory.

Most of us are lucky enough to have the next day off so get your Black n’ Gold on and get on down to Hibernia and start waving those towels, this will be Epic.
