The two best teams in the AFC square off this weekend in a huge battle for late season supremacy. The Steelers and the Titans will be battling for the right to earn home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Tennessee started the year 10-0 and has been considered the best team in the AFC all season. However, in the past few weeks the Steelers have come up with some impressive victories over Dallas and Baltimore.
The AFC North Division will likely be decided this weekend when the Baltimore Ravens host the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens are one game behind the Steelers in the division and a win would put them back in the division race, however the Steelers just need a win over the Ravens to clinch the division.
A marquee matchup is set for Sunday afternoon as the New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers. Last year the Patriots routed the Steelers 34-13 but both teams are different this season. The Steelers lead the AFC North by a game over Baltimore while New England is a game behind the New York Jets in the AFC East.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will try and avoiding having a letdown as they host the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night. The Steelers blew away the Bengals 38-10 earlier this season as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw two touchdown passes. Big Ben threw for 308 yards last week in the Steelers 11-10 win against San Diego.
The Pittsburgh Steelers may be a little frustrated losing two of their last three games but they are in far better position than the 4-5 San Diego Chargers. San Diego has played poorly most of the season and star running back LaDainian Tomlinson is having the worst season of his career. The only positive for the Chargers is they play in the weak AFC West where Denver is leading the division at just 5-4. Tomlinson led the league in rushing the past two seasons but has run for just 100 yards in two games this year and hasn’t scored a TD in five straight games.
The Pittsburgh Steelers proved last week they can win even without their starting quarterback as backup Byron Leftwich led them to a 23-6 win over the Washington Redskins after Ben Roethlisberger left with a shoulder injury. The status of Roethlisberger is up in the air for Sunday’s game against the Colts. The Steelers should still be favored at home, regardless of who is at quarterback.
