AFC Playoffs: Denver Broncos Face Pittsburgh Steelers In Wild Card Match-Up

Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos lost today to the Kansas City Chiefs in an uninspiring 7-3 performance. Somehow, the Broncos still won the division title and a playoff spot in the process. So goes the AFC West in 2011.

The Broncos have earned a first round slot against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who must travel to Denver since they did not earn a division title in a much harder division. The Bengals took the final spot and will face the Houston Texans in the other AFC first round match-up as the Ravens and Patriots have both earned first round byes.

Here’s the complete first round of the NFL Playoffs which will start next week:

AFC
No. 6 Cincinnati Bengals (9-7) at No. 3 Houston Texans (10-6)
No. 5 Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4) at No. 4 Denver Broncos (8-8)
