Dolphins vs Steelers Live Stream, AFC WILD CARD PLAYOFF
Time: 1:05 PM ET
Date: Sunday, January 8 -2017
Location: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh
In what should be a rather entertaining game — to say the least — the Miami Dolphins will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC wild-card playoff round. The Steelers enter the playoffs with an 11-5 record and the No. 3 seed in the AFC. Meanwhile, the Dolphins will enter postseason play with a 10-6 record and the No. 6 seed.
If you are Pittsburgh (or a fan of Pittsburgh), then you should feel very good about your chances of making a deep run in the playoffs. You see, the Steelers have now won seven games in a row. As for the Dolphins, they are coming off of a loss to the New England Patriots. If this matchup sounds familiar, that’s because it is. Miami took down Pittsburgh by the score of 30-15 in Week 6. For that reason alone, the Dolphins — and their fans, of course — probably feel pretty confident about their chances in this AFC wild-card showdown. With that in mind, that contest was played rather early in the season, and a lot has changed since then, like a seven-game winning streak by the Steelers.
Nonetheless, this is playoff football, and literally, any team is capable of making a run to the Super Bowl. Before the 2017 NFL playoffs get underway, make sure to check out some bold predictions for Miami vs. Pittsburgh. Not only will Pittsburgh open up the game with a big-time lead, but it will end up winning in double-digit fashion. Yes, the Dolphins are more than capable of knocking off the Steelers (they already took them down once this season), but Pittsburgh is a trendy pick to challenge the Patriots for an AFC championship. Once again, this is the NFL, and any team is capable of making a run in the playoffs. Therefore, don’t be surprised if the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders (even without Derek Carr), or another team ends up making the Super Bowl.
For the purposes of this contest, look for Pittsburgh to win by double figures. Stranger things have happened (much stranger, in fact), but the Steelers should have no problem taking care of the Dolphins at home.
