Maybe the Pats can rest players during the first round game against Cincy or the Steelers
Not against the Steelers. No way.
As flawed as Pittsburgh is this year they're one team I don't think any Patriot fan will overlook because of the history between the two teams. I live in Massachusetts and I've heard multiple times in the last two weeks "I don't want the Steelers anywhere near the play offs."
It's just one of those match ups, like with the Jets, where a surprisingly tough game could be on our hands.
