Head and shoulders better than the Steelers or the Patriots?
I think the cream of AFC crop is fairly even. As we've seen throughout the season, any team can beat any other team on a given day. It really comes down to who gets hot heading into the playoffs. The Chargers have had some charmed wins of late, so they will be riding that momentum, but they are not a seasoned playoff team and when the chips are down, I think they'll get beaten in a big game.
The Chiefs, led by Playoff Andy Reid doesn't scare me as much as they probably should. Reid is a modern day Marty Schottenheimer. His teams dominate the regular season and generally peak too early. They'll get bounced unless Mahomes has Joe Montana-like ice water in his veins come playoff time.
Ravens are a scary matchup but I don't trust Lamar Jackson in a big spot. (not to mention he's always one play away from getting carted off the field)
Patriots are always dangerous, but they are as shaky as I've seen them in a long time. Don't think they have the sand in their pants to get it done this year.
Leaves us the Steelers. If they can play even close to their potential and not make stupid turnovers, I'd give them as good a shot as anyone.
