Steelers Break Tie With 49ers With 16th Appearance In Conference Championship Round

The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons are the favorites in the National Football League conference championship games.

Most teams advancing to the conference championship game would be ecstatic, nearly regardless of how they got the job done. The victor of this game will be heading to a record ninth Super Bowl.

"A lot of guys in the National Football League have played way more years than I have (and) have never been to a division game or AFC championship game", Shazier said after registering an interception for the fourth consecutive game dating to the regular season.

New England is 20-1 in the postseason when winning the turnover battle and also, since 2001 when not turning the ball over the Patriots are 91-10.

The Green Bay Packers through quarterback Rodgers will bring back the Packers to another Super Bowl appearance in Houston.

The Steelers didn't score a touchdown in their victory over against the Chiefs Sunday, but Kirk Minihane predicts they'll have a big day against an untested Patriots defense in the AFC championship next Sunday. Atlanta will play the Packers, who beat the Cowboys tonight, 34-31.

Bill Belichick heads to the locker room after winning his NFL-record 23rd playoff game.

With Sunday's victory over the Chiefs, the Pittsburgh Steelers managed to set yet another postseason record, while extending another. They'll want as many back in coverage as possible to deal with Brown and some of the other Steelers speed merchants. New England has shown their ability to defeat a Pittsburgh team without Roethlesberger, as they handed the Steelers a 27-16 loss in late October. He will instead be in attendance for the NFC title matchup at Atlanta's Georgia Dome.

Three years later, they met again amid the mustard-yellow seats of Heinz Field, and again, the Steelers were expected to stop the Patriots' budding dynasty in its tracks. When it comes to Super Bowl champions, the team with the most balance wins, and in this case it is New England.

In those 17 seasons there are 10 teams - almost a third of the league - that have not reached even one conference championship game.

Belichick was asked about stopping Bell on Monday. He also joined former Chargers kicker John Carney (1993) as the only players to make six or more field goals in a game twice in the same season.

It was the scariest 18-point win we've ever witnessed. Brady will pick apart the Steelers' young secondary for the most part, but the hits and the pass rush against him will be the difference in a second consecutive AFC championship game.

This is the third meeting between Brady and Roethlisberger in the AFC Championship, and Big Ben is looking for his first win against Brady in this scenario.

It remains to be seen if the Conference Championships can match the intensity and competitiveness of the divisional games between Green Bay and Dallas as well as Pittsburgh and Kansas City. But left tackle was called for holding the Steelers' James Harrison and the play didn't count.

New England remains the favorite to win Super Bowl LI with +150 odds. New England's defense stifled Brock Osweiler and Houston's offense and held them to three points in the second half while they sealed the deal. Wes Welker, by the way, never got his ring even though it felt like he won a few of them.
