The Falcons, currently atop the AFC North, are currently looking to make the playoffs for the first time in four years.
While they have been a bit disappointing in recent years, the Falcons have been among the most successful teams in the NFL since 2011.
The team’s record is 22-8, including the playoffs, with four Super Bowl titles.
The AFC South, meanwhile, has struggled to win a title since 2013, when the Texans won the title with a record of 13-4.
The league’s top seeds have a record that is 22 – 6 in the playoffs and have been unable to repeat that form since the 2016 season.
The only team in both divisions that has not missed the playoffs since 2015 is the Falcons, who were eliminated from the playoffs in the first round last season.
The most recent Falcons-Steelers meeting was a close one with the teams tied in the fourth quarter before the Steelers recovered and rallied from a 19-17 deficit to win 27-20.
The Steelers have had some trouble winning in Pittsburgh since their last title in 2010.
The Patriots are one of the NFL’s most successful franchises in recent times, winning eight of their past nine Super Bowls.
They are currently riding a seven-game winning streak, including two games over the Steelers.
The Ravens, a perennial contender in the division, have not made the playoffs all season.
