Any Given Sunday: Steelers over Broncos

Another impressive win for the Steelers has them heading to Detroit as favorites. Ben Roethlisberger has been great, but it is the pass rush that is leading this team. Denver suffers another difficult playoff loss, but maybe the biggest problem could be the defensive coaching, not the quarterback.

2006 Championship Previews

The NFL's final four features a quartet of strong teams, and each has at least a one in five chance of winning the Super Bowl. It's the slight gradations in that last one chance in five that determine who should be favored in this weekend's contests. You'll find all the DVOA analysis you know and love over on FOXSports.com, previewing both Pittsburgh at Denver and Carolina at Seattle. Discussion is here, along with extra analysis of Denver's run defense and the 2003 Panthers vs. the 2005 Panthers.

Any Given Sunday: Steelers over Colts

The media had been informed, including Football Outsiders. The referees had certainly been informed. Somebody forgot to tell the Steelers that the Colts were this year's Super Bowl winners. And, unfortunately for the Colts, someone also forgot to tell their offensive line.
