It’s playoff Sunday, and we get two more games today. First up is a rematch from the regular season between the Jacksolville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger would like to forget the results from that game(and the 5 interceptions with a few returned for TDs). The Steelers took that early wake up call seriously and locked up the #2 seed in the AFC.
The Jaguars won the AFC South on the backs of their strong defense, and earned the 3rd seed. The Steelers were hoping to get Antonio Brown back at full strength for the playoffs following his calf injury over a month ago. He's not 100%, but will try to play today to get to the AFC Championship game next weekend.
