Sorry I think the Steelers prevail today. They darn well better, after they stomped all over Indy last week.

Mainepatsfan and I were setting up the Live Thread and someone else posted this one, we don't want to post another one and make it more confusing, so , yes--
this is the Live Thread...
I see you asked mod to fix the heading...good move.
We try to stay on top of things, but someone else did it while we were setting it set up.

I search for LIVE when I am looking for sports games.
Sometimes they are pushed off the page by other posts.

I agree with your picks but I like Carolina a bit more than the Steelers. It's hard to believe that the home teams haven't swept the conference title games since the Patriots and Packers did it in 1996.

Its not good when we get multiple Live Threads...its more fun when we can all be in one place.We will add "Live" to the keyword in our future Live Thread posts, I never thought of that before, good idea!

I like Carolina and Pittsburgh, both road teams. The home teams are both 9-0 and are the "smart" pick, but I'm a rebel and will go with the underdogs.

Y not go ahead and paste the html (I assume you were doing a classy set of graphics and stuff) into a response here? No sense in wasting a good html setup for the games.

Kickoff for the AFC is in about 10 minutes. NFC about 3 hours after that.

Steelers by 10

The Broncos play in the toughest conference in the NFL the AFC west ... if the Steelers played in the AFC west instead of the AFC north ... they wouldn't be in the play-offs. Denver by 10.

There is no way Seattle wins today..

If Seattle would simply follow the Cowboys' lead, and shut down Steve Smith by double/triple teaming him, they will beat Carolina handily. And they will have to get a bit nasty and physical with him. He rather came unglued when the Cowboys did that earlier in the year.

Think we are looking at a SEA-PIT Super bowl, myself.

I'm in Seattle. I admit it might be a Bull Buster.

But we're at home. Big, Big, BIG advantage.

Steelers are a cold weather team, as are Broncos. Elevation might help Broncos, and fan noise when Steelers are on offense. Dunno about Seattle/Carolina. Those two teams probably get less publicity than anyone else in the NFC. The AFC game is between teams that have a combined 11 Super Bowl appearances and 6 wins, while the NFC is between teams that have one appearance and zero wins. (that's close, but I don't follow any of these teams closely, let me know if I'm off)

Your NFL math is correct.

History shows that home field advantage in this round is almost a non factor. I expect at least one of the road teams to win today.

If either Pittsburgh or Carolina wins today they'll be the first team(s) since the 1985 New England Patriots to win three post season games on the road to reach the Super Bowl.
