Greetings from Pittsburgh
By Tim Graham
PITTSBURGH -- Actual sunlight is illuminating the seats at Heinz Field on a picturesque afternoon at the confluence of the three rivers.
Conditions will be plenty bitter by 6:30 p.m Sunday, when the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers kick off for the AFC Championship Game.
An updated weather forecast for kickoff, courtesy The Weather Channel: 14 degrees with a wind chill of 5 degrees, 6 mph winds, 53 percent humidity and a 10 percent chance of snow.
You can enhance your viewing pleasure by logging into the Jets Center at ESPNNewYork.com for coverage from reporters Rich Cimini and Jane McManus and columnist Ian O'Connor.
You also can visit our Countdown Live chat, which will run throughout the game with observations and updates from Scouts Inc. analyst Matt Williamson, ESPN Stats & Information researchers, AFC North blogger James Walker and me. ESPN editor Emily Schaible will moderate.
Ed Hochuli will be the referee. On the field. Not in the chat.
I'll report back later with inactives.
