Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill returns to limited practice today

In the first half of that game, the Dolphin defense held Steeler quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in check, constantly applying pressure to him with various blitz packages and zone coverages, which led to two sacks and two interceptions. The Steelers are hopeful the contest will be the first step en route to the Super Bowl. Steelers in playoffs for third straight year, seventh time in coach Mike Tomlin's 10-year tenure.

Reed famously overcame - overlooked - what is typically a ruinous injury and limped his way onto the floor to help his New York Knicks win game seven of the 1970 NBA Finals. The Dolphins were able to win with backup Matt Moore late in the season, and they lean heavily on their running game, also important for cold-weather play.

Tannehill continues to rehab a knee injury that kept him out of the Dolphins last three regular season games.

Tannehill has not been ruled out of a possible second-round game at New England.

"Nothing. That is what we have come to expect from him".

If the Steelers open the game and quickly go down and score, psychologically it could affect the Dolphins' offensive approach. That play stood as the longest run allowed by the Steelers until Cleveland's Isaiah Crowell had a 67-yard run last week when the Browns had 231 yards rushing, the most allowed by the Steelers since the Jacksonville Jaguars had 244 in December, 2007.

"It's about winning games".

Miami clinched a playoff berth towards the end of the regular season, after a tremendous 9-1 run.

Three reasons why Spurs can close the gap on Chelsea
Of course, we know that's in our mind, we were just talking about it there in the changing-room", Kane told reporters. During a season, different situations can happen when you can have advantage - but not this.

On October 16, the Dolphins defeated the Steelers, 30-15, in Miami behind running back Jay Ajayi's 204 rushing yards and two touchdowns. 40 Miami players will be making playoff debut.

The Steelers and their quarterback Ben Roethlisberger have a good deal of playoff experience. Pittsburgh is coming into the postseason as one of the hottest teams in the entire National Football League and I'm not sure that back-up quarterback, Matt Moore, will be able to get the job done, especially on the road.

Steelers players and coaches said Moore has been effective in rollouts, getting outside the pocket and having a quick release, which could explain why he was sacked just once in 88 drop-backs. Roethlisberger is not easily rattled, but Wake and Suh have been known to change games with their play.

Running back Le'Veon Bell will be in the backfield on Sunday and that is a welcome sight to Roethlisberger. No. 1 corner Byron Maxwell also is doubtful, so this patchwork secondary will have a whale of a challenge against Antonio Brown and Co.

Cold, breezy weather will be on tap in the Steel City on Sunday at Heinz Field. Moore is 15-13 as starter, 8-7 with Dolphins.

The Steelers have been remarkably consistent on offense over their last eight games, averaging 26.9 points while never scoring fewer than 24 points in a game over that stretch. That's a tall order.

But the Miami defense gets the Steeler's triplets, ready to go, especially after the Dolphins won during the season.
