AFC Championship: New York Jets vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Live Stream (Free Online Video)
AFC Championship Free Live Stream: The Pittsburgh Steelers, one of only three teams that have represented the American Football Conference in the past seven Super Bowls, will have a home field advantage in their battle against the New York Jets tonight for the AFC Championship Game.
Both the Steelers and Jets have tough defenses and efficient offenses, but when they met on December 19 in Pittsburgh, New York grabbed a 22-17 win. During that game the Jets took advantage of the absence of Troy Polamalu and ran for 106 yards against the NFL’s top-ranked rushing defense.
This will be New York’s second straight appearance in the title game. Rex Ryan’s side moved into the playoffs as the conference’s sixth seed, but upset Peyton Manning and the Colts in the Wild Card playoffs, then shocked the first-ranked Patriots in Foxborough last weekend in the Divisional Round. The Steelers, meanwhile, eliminated Baltimore from the playoffs last weekend in Heinz Field.
Mark Sanchez certainly was a factor last Sunday when they defeated New England. The 24-year-old Jets quarterback had 16 completions in 25 attempts for 194 yards. He also threw for three touchdowns, had no interceptions and made several big plays. To expect similar success might be a bit much, but Sanchez needs to prove himself once more, as he is a victory away from the most playoff road wins by an NFL quarterback.
Strap yourself in for this one because the game will start in just a few hours (6:30 p.m. ET).
UPDATE: The Steelers are headed to Super Bowl XLV after beating the New York Jets 24-19 Sunday night at Heinz Field. Pittsburgh will face the Green Bay Packers in the big game on February 6.
