The Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots will both be gunning for a victory on Sunday when they meet at Gillette Stadium.

ABOUT THE STEELERS (13-5): Roethlisberger has one of the league’s top receivers at his disposal, but Pittsburgh is centering its offense around running back Le’Veon Bell, who has set franchise playoff records in back-to-back games by rushing for 167 yards against Miami and 170 at Kansas City. Bell has rushed for at least 118 yards in seven of his last eight contests but was limited to 81 on 21 carries by New England while making 10 catches for 68 yards. Antonio Brown has racked up 481 receptions over the last four seasons, including seven for 106 yards in Week 7, while going over 100 yards in both postseason wins. The defense has shown the most improvement for the Steelers, who have permitted an average of 16.6 points and registered 31 sacks during their winning streak.

ABOUT THE PATRIOTS (15-2): After throwing for 28 touchdowns against only two interceptions, Tom Brady matched the latter total by getting picked off twice during a pedestrian performance in last week’s 34-16 victory over Houston. Brady, though, routinely has carved up Pittsburgh’s defense, throwing for 19 touchdowns and zero interceptions in the last six matchups, and for his career has 26 scoring passes versus three picks while posting a 9-2 record against the Steelers. Running back LeGarrette Blount rushed for 127 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 7 meeting, but Dion Lewis did the bulk of the damage against Houston with three TDs – including one on a 98-yard kickoff return. The Patriots’ defense led the league by surrendering 15.6 points during the regular season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Patriots listed as 6-point favorites versus the Steelers, while the game’s total is sitting at 50.

New England was a 34-16 winner in its last match at home against the Texans. They covered the -16.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 50 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Pittsburgh, they were a 18-16 winner as they battled the Chiefs on the road. The Steelers covered in the match as a +2.5-point underdog, while 34 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots are in familiar territory as they prepare to clash in Sunday night’s AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. Both franchises are used to playing with the stakes so high — the winner of the matchup will establish an NFL record by becoming the first team to advance to the Super Bowl for the ninth time.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a pair of Super Bowl rings but knows the challenge presented by the Patriots, who beat Pittsburgh in the AFC title game after both the 2001 and 2004 regular seasons on their way to championships. “You are going up to the lion’s den, the dragon’s lair,” Roethlisberger told reporters. “They are the dragon. We are trying to slay them. It doesn’t matter who it is, but they are the gold standard.” New England, the first team since the 1970 merger to advance to six consecutive conference championship games, won at Pittsburgh 27-16 in Week 7 – a game Roethlisberger missed due to injury. “I think the game earlier in the season is not really that relevant,” said Patriots coach Bill Belichick, instead pointing to the Steelers’ nine-game winning streak. “What the Steelers have done in the last 2 1/2 months is really what we’re probably going to see Sunday night, and that’s what we’ve got to be ready for.”
