AFC Divisional Round open thread: Jaguars at Steelers

Come chat during the AFC’s final divisional game.

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

In about eight hours, the NFL Conference Championship games will be set. The Patriots and Eagles are waiting patiently to see who their opponents will be next week.

The AFC opponent will be determined first as the Jacksonville Jaguars will be trying to upset the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars, led by one of the most feared defenses in the league, finished the regular season with a mediocre 10-6 record, but won six of their final nine games.

The Steelers finished 13-3, but they weren’t all that impressive in their wins. Only five of those wins were by more than one score, and one of their three losses came again... the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jacksonville was dominant on that day, embarrassing the Steelers 30-9 on Heinz Field. Can they have a repeat performance three months later? Here’s how to watch:

Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers
Location: Heinz Field
Time: 1:05 p.m. ET
Announcers: Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts
Online streaming: Yahoo Sports app
Odds: Steelers by 7
