AFC Wild Card: Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers - Live Blog

The Miami Dolphins (10-6) roared into the playoffs winning nine of their last eleven games, but the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5) have won eight straight.

Everyone and their mother is going to pick the Pittsburgh Steelers to win this game. The Miami Dolphins have very little playoff experience and they face a very explosive team on that teams home turf.

Look for Ben Roethlisberger to find Antonio Brown frequently in this game and it could be a game that gets away from the Dolphins. The one caveat is how the Steelers have struggled in their last couple of games against inferior competition.

That makes me think we could see a bit of a back and forth game, with Jay Ajayi carrying the load for Miami. I predict a final score somewhere around the 31-27 range in favor of the Steelers.
