New York Giants fans were hoping it would be their team playing Sunday with a chance to beat the arch-rival Cowboys for a third time this season, ending their Super Bowl hopes. Alas, it was the Giants who had their season ended a week ago by the Packers. So, we get to see if Aaron Rodgers and Co. can put the Cowboys down.
Green Bay will be without leading receiver Jordy Nelson, who broke two ribs courtesy of a hit last Sunday by Giants’ safety Leon Hall.
Will the storybook season continue for rookies Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and the rest of the Cowboys? Will Rodgers and the Packers, winners of seven straight games, continue shooting down everything in their path?
Pittsburgh Steelers (12-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (12-4)
When: Sunday, Jan. 15
Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Mo.
Game time: 8:20 p.m. ET
TV: CBS (Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, Michele Tafoya, Heather Cox)
Radio: SIRIUS — 88 (Westwood One), 81 (Pit), 82 (KC). XM — 88 (Westwood One), 225 (Pit), 82 (KC).
Odds: Chiefs -1.5

This game was moved from its original 1:05 p.m. start time to 8:20 p.m. due to ice storms forecast in the Kansas City area early Sunday.
The 1.5-point spread, with the Chiefs favored, is the closest of any of the four divisional round games this weekend. Pittsburgh pounded Kansas City, 43-14, in October.
Pittsburgh advanced to the divisional round with a 30-12 victory over the Miami Dolphins last week in the wild-card round.
The Steelers feature the troika of Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown on offense. The Chiefs have the league’s seventh-ranked defense, giving up only 19.4 points per game.
