Let's get this one out of the way quickly....
The Denver Broncos at 8-8, are not the best team in the AFC West, but they are the team that won enough games, played enough defence and got enough Tebow "magic" to win the division and earned the right to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs.
This matchup gives us a head-on collision between two quarterbacks that are both the most similar and dissimilar in the league. Ben Roethlisberger is the starting quarterback of the most hated team in the NFL, and has had his fair share of run-ins with the law. Big Ben is the NFL's ultimate bad boy.
On the other hand, Tebow is the NFL's resident pastor, praying before and after nearly every drive. Both quarterbacks play with a great amount of toughness and resiliency, and both are proficient at leading their teams on game-winning drives.
Ultimately, the Broncos will fall to Pittsburgh, but if the Denver defence shows up, it could be a low scoring, hard fought game that comes down to the last drive.
Prediction: Wild Card Round loss to Pittsburgh
