Steelers vs. Colts
The Steelers don't care now that they've beaten Tom Brady. Peyton Manning burns the Steelers secondary and it over before halftime at 24-3. Ben tries to lead a comeback but Arians keeps calling WR screens. Final:38-17.
It really doesn't matter who makes it for the NFC, they are going to lose anyway. But just for god measure, Brett Favre beats Tony Romo in a rematch and TO blames it on Jessica Simpson. In the Super Bowl, Manning shows up Favre who throws two INTs. It is not even close: 34-17 Colts win...........again.
