NFL Playoffs Steelers vs Broncos Late Games Open Thread

The New England Patriots will face the winner of this game, and the majority of Patriots fans want to have a rematch with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers are beaten up on offense and will face one of the best defenses in the league. A Steelers victory would be the biggest upset of the postseason. While it would be fun to see another Peyton Manning one-and-done, it is increasingly unlikely. A Pittsburgh victory would mean the Patriots will host the AFC Championship game.

The Broncos will be trusting the offense to Peyton, who seems to struggle to put together consecutive positive games. The Patriots will certainly be watching to see if he's actually healthy, or if early-season Peyton is the same as post-season Peyton.

Use this post as your open thread.
