NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers will put their playoff dreams on the line when they collide at Land Shark Stadium in South Florida this afternoon.
Pittsburgh started off the season a bit shaky, but found a way to make it work in order to get 5 straight victories. Last weekend, the Steelers kept their faint hopes for a title defense with a 23-20 win over Baltimore. However, the status of Troy Polamalu is uncertain as they prepare for their last game of the regular season on the road.
The Dolphins, meanwhile, have been a resilient squad but we’re going to go against them in this match. For Miami to make the post season, it’s gonna take nothing short of a New Year miracle.
The match kicks-off at 1:00 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdown passes and Jeff Reed kicked three field goals, as the Steelers kept their postseason hopes alive with a 30-24 win over Miami.
Now the defending Super Bowl champions need losses by Baltimore, Denver and the New York Jets to reach the playoffs.
