It's hard to imagine an 11-win Pittsburgh Steelers team as Week 16 home underdogs, but that just goes to show you the way these two franchises have been playing lately. The challenger is of course the Indianapolis Colts, who are a 10-win team in their own right.

In terms of the AFC playoff picture, this could be the most crucial game of the entire week. The results could affect two division winners, playoff seeding for multiple teams, and any perennial Super Bowl runs. To unpack all of this, we'll turn things over to a panel of NFL experts.
