Sunday Sports Update
Top left: The Pittsburgh Steelers should expect to see a heavy dose of Jay Ajayi again in today's AFC Wild Card playoff meeting against the Miami Dolphins at Heinz Field. The two teams met earlier in the season in Miami, with the Dolphins winning behind Ajayi's 200-plus rushing yards. But Pittsburgh could have more of an advantage today with their home field, as well as the Dolphins missing starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill again. Dolphins-Steelers is the first of two NFL playoff games on tap today; the second is Giants-Packers in Green Bay.
