For this post-season, the excitement is already high. Tough defenses, great offensive squads, familiar faces, and even new faces to the show. But the updated seeding has some pretty nifty rules.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will be facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals. And this game actually decides whom will the victor will be playing in the Divisional match-up.
If Pittsburgh wins they come to Denver Colorado to face the Broncos. But if the Bengals win they automatically face the New England Patriots in Foxborough.
On the opposite side, You have the Minnesota Vikings playing against the Seattle Seahawks. If the Seahawks win they face the Carolina Panthers. But if the Vikings win they play against the Arizona Cardinals.
