Oddly enough, despite all the dominance from both franchises, this will mark just the third time during that stretch that they have met in the AFC Championship. The Pats won the first two in 2002 and 2005, and now they’re favored to do it again.
Nevertheless, the Steelers have won nine games in a row and make up one of the best 6-point underdogs you’ll see.
