Another matchup for next weekend's Divisional Round has been set, and it will indeed be a true divisional battle in the AFC bracket of the 2011 NFL Playoffs. With their win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens are moving on to face their AFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Ravens and Steelers both finished the regular season at 12-4, but Pittsburgh took the title, and the No. 2 seed, thanks to their 5-1 divisional record (Baltimore was just 4-2). The teams split their two regular season matchups, with the road team winning each contest.
The Steelers will host the Ravens Saturday, Jan. 15, at 4:30 p.m. ET on CBS. The other AFC Divisional Round game is a renewal of an AFC East rivalry as the New York Jets visit the New England Patriots (Sunday, Jan. 16, 4:30 p.m. on CBS). The winners meet in the AFC Championship, set for Jan. 23.
