Just out of curiousity, I did some research on past match-ups between our playoff teams this year. Here is what I came up with...

Steelers vs. Colts
1975 - Pittsburgh Def Baltimore, 28-10
1976 - Pittsburgh Def Baltimore, 40-14
1995 - Pittsburgh Def Indianapolis, 20-16
1996 - Pittsburgh Def Indianapolis, 42-14

Prediction - Steelers win
Actual - Pittsburgh Def Indianapolis, 21-18

Steelers vs. Colts
1977 - Denver Def Pittsburgh, 34-21
1978 - Pittsburgh Def Denver, 33-10
1984 - Pittsburgh Def Denver, 24-17
1989 - Denver Def Pittsburgh, 24-23

Hmmm, 2 up - 2 down. Let's average the points...

Denver's Average Points Per Game - 21.25
Pittsburgh's Average Points Per Game - 25.25

So history predicts a win for us, but it is going to be a hell of a game!

As an aside, I couldn't find where Cincy ever played Pittsburgh in a play-off game so I skipped them.

You'd have to go back over 15 years just to find where the bungals have even been in the playoffs'

This year was the first time the Steelers ever met the Bungals in the playoffs...that's why! lol

:sign09:

Nice stats, I personally think it won't be a hell of a game, though. Watch for a blowout in Denver! I might be wrong, tho...anything can happen I guess. Also, notice how they win one, and we win two. They won last time, so it's time to win two in a row, hehehe
