The Steelers will go head-to-head with the New York Jets for the right to advance to Dallas for the Super Bowl.
For the Steelers, this will be the fifth time in 10 years they have made it to the AFC Championship Game. For the Jets, they are doing it for a second consecutive year.
Beating the Jets will not be easy. After all, they did beat the Steelers in Week 15, albeit without Troy Polamalu in the lineup.
The Jets are also on a bit of a hot streak after beating the league's golden boys, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, in consecutive weeks.
However, if the Steelers follow these seven keys, they will ground the Jets and be one step closer to acquiring Lombardi No. 7.
