Talk about the AFC Championship Game with Revenge of the Birds

NFL: AFC Championship-Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Well that was boring. While the NFC Championship Game finishes with a whimper to everyone but Falcons fans, hopefully the AFC Championship Game will give us slightly more entertainment.

The details:

Date: Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts

Kickoff: 6:40 PM EST (4:40pm Arizona time)

Odds: Patriots -6

TV: CBS

The Patriots looked destined for this moment since they escaped Glendale with a win in week one minus Tom Brady.

It ended up being just a formality of if the game would be at home for the Pats or not.

Tom Brady and the dynamic and balanced Patriots offense will have to keep up with the Steelers offense, which boasts maybe the most complete offensive personnel in the NFL.

The Steelers though have been held back, seemingly, by a rusty Ben Roethlisberger.

If the Steelers cannot convert touchdowns in the redzone like against Kansas City, this game could be just another lopsided battle in the 2017 NFL playoffs.
