AFC Championship Preview
The Pittsburgh Steelers will play host to the New York Jets, in the AFC championship game, on Sunday, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Espn.com has a preview, below.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger #7 of the Pittsburgh Steelers signals against the Baltimore Ravens in the first quarter of the AFC Divisional Playoff Game at Heinz Field on January 15, 2011 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Three teams — and three of the NFL’s highest-profile quarterbacks — have represented the AFC in the past seven Super Bowls, a trend that can continue Sunday at Heinz Field with a victory by Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Don’t expect the New York Jets to be intimidated.
The sixth-seeded Jets have gotten through Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to punch a ticket to their second straight AFC championship game, leaving Roethlisberger’s Steelers as the last obstacle to their first Super Bowl appearance in 42 years.
