It sure looks like the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers battle for the AFC #1 seed is going down to the final game next week. The Steelers beat the Houston Texans on Christmas 34-6.

The win makes Pittsburgh 12-3 just like the Patriots.

Now the Pats hold the head-to-head tie-breaker and need only to beat the NY Jets Sunday afternoon.

They better beat them because the Steelers finish with a home game vs Cleveland.

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 226 yards and 2 TDs vs the Texans. Le'Veon Bell ran the ball just 14 times for 67 yards and a TD.
