Packers knocked the hottest team out of the Super Bowl and looking to take down the #2 seed, the hot offense.

Steelers did the opposite and put the #2 Chiefs out. Looking to take down Tom Brady next round.

Can these two teams be able to knock out both top seeds and see one another in the Super Bowl? It will be a rare sight in the history of NFL.

It's tough to knock out Pats at home in the playoffs. Pats are 15-3 (SU) in their last eighteen playoff home games, only lost twice to the Ravens and once to the Jets. But i think if anyone who could toss out another Pats' bid to the Super Bowl, it will be the Pittsburgh Steelers. This team plays very physical football, can rush, put pressure and sack the QBs, play solid defense and offense, a resemblance if not batter of those Ravens who did knockout Pats in the past postseasons. 

Yeah, It could happen.

It won't happen if they kick 6 FGs again.  They really doesn't bode well for their chances vs the Pats who are going to score TDs.

 Steelers currently holds the #1 spot for total defense and a total offense that is right under Green Bay. Steelers hold the #1 spot in rushing both the offense and defensive side of the ball. Against the hot offense like KC... Defense was used. If the Steelers rushing attack hits Tom Brady who only sits in the pocket and not a mobile Aaron Rodgers...money is on Steelers to get after the old guy.

I have a feeling that ole Billy will have a game plan against Bell's delayed run through the holes.  Do you think he can do it without cheating though?

We could also be witnessing the greatest Super Bowl as well. Legendary coaches and Legendary QB's on both side of the ball for the Lombardi Trophy. It would make one hell of a rating for Vegas as well. Money goes out to the guy #12 in his prime who is still able to move around and make plays from scrambling.

TV RATINGS for the PACKERS n STEELERS are OFF the CHARTS!

Almost a SUPERBOWL-like tv rating for Packers/Cowboys (48.5 million views).
  1. LAST YEARS NFC CHAMPIONSHIP - 45.7 million
  2. 2015 SUPERBOWL - 49.8 million

CHIEFS/STEELERS pulled in at 37.1 million views, RECORD.

Vegas can't take these two teams out.... I'd be suprised to see REF's all over PATRIOTS and FALCONS on flag calls.

NFL sees the pot of gold in this pleasant surprise on this prime time TV change, i won't be surprised that they follow suit from the next playoff season. It's about money, big money. Steelers and Packers might have the largest fans bases in the country and overseas.

For the references, my offshore has these following hypothetical matchups in the SB LI:

Packers -1 (-110)
Steelers +1 (-110)

Packers +3 (-105)
Patriots -3 (-115)

Falcons +1.5 (-110)
Steelers -1.5 (-110)

Falcons +3.5 (-115)
Patriots -3.5 (-105)

Interestingly, Packers are -1 vs Steelers, yet Steelers are -1.5 vs Falcons.
