Steelers clinch playoff berth

The Steelers clinched a playoff berth hours before they took the field against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football.

With the Miami Dolphins losing to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Steelers earned a spot in the AFC playoff field.

The Steelers are back in the playoffs for the first time since the 2017 season. The Steelers have earned 31 playoff berths since the 1970 NFL merger, including nine under Coach Mike Tomlin.

The Steelers are one of two AFC teams who have already clinched a playoff berth, the other being the Kansas City Chiefs. In the NFC, the New Orleans Saints have clinched a playoff spot.
