Steelers rout Dolphins 30-12, advance to meet Kansas City (Reuters)

(The Sports Xchange) – The Pittsburgh Steelers’ dynamic B-team offensive trio of Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell, a bitterly cold winter day and non-stop pressure by the blitzing defense created a 30-12 AFC playoff game home rout of the Miami Dolphins on Sunday that wasn’t even that close. “The defense played great, and we went out to control the ball and score some touchdowns,” Bell said after the Steelers coasted into next Sunday’s AFC divisional game at Kansas City. The third-seeded Steelers did all that and more in winning an NFL-best eighth in a row, one more than the top-seeded New England Patriots, who appear to be Pittsburgh’s biggest roadblock to playing in a ninth Super Bowl.
