NFL: AFC Divisional-Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers will take their show on the road to try and advance to Super Bowl 51 after their 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional round. They will play the New England Patriots in New England for a chance to represent the AFC in the biggest sporting event in North America.

The date and time has been set for the game. The two AFC powerhouses will play Sunday at 6:40 p.m. ET, and the game will be broadcast on CBS.

This will be a rematch of their Week 7 game where the Patriots were able to come into Heinz Field and beat the Steelers 27-16, but as fans recall, Ben Roethlisberger missed the game with a knee injury, and Landry Jones played in his stead.

Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown will all be on the field Sunday when the Steelers have a chance to slay the dragon which is Tom Brady and the vaunted New England Patriots.
