From Teresa Varley, Steelers.com:
The Steelers will host a Divisional Round playoff game at Heinz Field on January 14.
The Steelers don’t know who their opponent will be in the Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs, but the team now knows when they will play.
The Steelers will host a home playoff game at Heinz Field on Sunday, January 14 at 1:05 p.m. They will play the highest seeded team remaining after the AFC Wild Card round.
The potential opponents for the Steelers would be Jacksonville, Kansas City or Tennessee. The Steelers beat both Kansas City and Tennessee in the regular season, and lost to Jacksonville.
This is the first time since the 2010 season that the Steelers have hosted a Divisional Round playoff game, when they defeated the Baltimore Ravens, 31-24, en route to Super Bowl XLV.
