Why the Dolphins Will Upset the Pittsburgh Steelers This Weekend

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins went head-to-head in the AFC Wild Card game at Heinz Field, and the Dolphins had to feel as if they were on another planet, in terms of the weather. They'll have Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, and Big Ben healthy and rested, coming off of a seven-game winning streak. You have to respect the toughness of backup Matt Moore, who was on the receiving end of a nasty shot from Bud Dupree but only missed a snap.

Don't think the Steelers aren't aware of this - he gashed them in Week 6 for 204 yards and 2 touchdowns in leading them to a 30-15 win for the Dolphins. The rookie cornerback is going to have his hands full against Landry, who finished the season with 94 catches for 1,136 yards.

Brown. How can he not be?

The Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers are an hour away from the start of their NFL Playoffs Wildcard match up. On the Steelers' first two possessions alone, Brown had three catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns.

After avoiding the AFC Wildcard round with a bye, the AFC West division champion Chiefs will now gear up for the PIttsburgh Steelers for a 12:05 p.m. kickoff January 15 at Arrowhead Stadium. I'll take the frozen home field advantage and go with Ed on this one.

"It's an ongoing process to try to figure out the right thing to do", said Dolphins first-year head coach Adam Gase regarding his injured signal-caller.

The Steelers (11-5) suffered a 30-15 loss to Miami during Week 6, the first of four consecutive losses that had Ben Roethlisberger questioning if players were being held accountable.

Tucker Carlson To Take Over Megyn Kelly's Time Slot On Fox News
Some cable news observers had speculated Fox would replace Kelly with one of the four women who had filled in for her at 9 p.m. It is likely the hope of Fox News management that Carlson will fit so well that " The Kelly File " will be quickly forgotten.

Bell's regular-season numbers: 261 attempts, 1,268 yards, seven rushing touchdowns.

Moore was under siege all day.

The Steelers outgained Miami 286-159 in the first half.

The young running back has carried the flag for Britain in the National Football League this season, and carried his Miami Dolphins into the playoffs. According to Team Rankings, Pittsburgh's defense was one of the most stingy in the red zone, allowing 45.6 percent of touchdowns to opponents when they reach the 20. He did just that late in the first quarter with 10 carries for 78 yards by himself, slicing through several Dolphins defenders for a 25-yard gain to set up a goal-line touchdown.

On the next play from scrimmage, Moore was intercepted by Ryan Shazier, setting up the Steelers offense in Miami territory. They made the Dolphins look like a Division II team early, marching down the field in the blink of an eye. Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi, who ran for 204 yards against the Steelers in a 30-15 win on October 16, was held to 33 yards on 16 carries Sunday.

Both of these teams know something about playing their way to the championship after surging in December, but only one will make it to the divisional round. In fact, Brown, who attended Miami Norland High School, had three receptions for 119 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter.
