Chris Harris, Desmond Clark will play

CHICAGO — Chicago Bears safety Chris Harris (hip) is active for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game and will start.

It will be interesting to see how long Harris lasts in this game. As Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported, Harris has a torn muscle in his hip and needed a pain-killing injection Sunday morning. Rookie Major Wright will be available in reserve.

As expected, Bears tight end Desmond Clark will play in this game after being deactivated for 11 games during the regular season. As a result, the Bears have four receivers and four tight ends active for this game.

Here are the Bears’ eight inactive players:

Steelers vs Jets: 2011 AFC Championship Game Live Score and Coverage on CBS

Pittsburgh Steelers vs New York Jets 2011 AFC Championship Game Live Score and Broadcast on CBS - The Pittsburgh Steelers hold membership in a very exclusive club, one they’ll be trying to prevent the New York Jets from joining when the two teams get together at Heinz Field for Sunday’s AFC Championship.

Live from the Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh Steelers vs New York Jets 2011 AFC Championship Game will have a kick off time of 6:30 pm ET, Sunday, January 23, 2011.

Roethlisberger has the Steelers (13-4) in their fourth AFC championship game in his seven years in the league after it looked like his team might be one-and-done at halftime last Saturday against Baltimore.

“(Manning and Brady) approach things a little different,” said Ryan, who lost the 2009 AFC title game in Pittsburgh as Baltimore’s defensive coordinator. “Roethlisberger will beat you up. … I’ve never seen a guy take the hits he can take and also make people miss the way he does and be as accurate on the run.”

Apparently, New York helped earn itself a spot in this year’s AFC postseason field with a gritty 22-17 win at Heinz Field on Dec. 19, and its remarkable success on the road under second-year head coach Rex Ryan has carried into the playoffs. The Jets knocked off the defending conference champion Colts in a 17-16 squeaker during the Wild Card Round, then backed up a week’s worth of bulletin-board chatter by downing the top-seeded and previously-rolling Patriots by a 28-21 count this past Sunday to reach the AFC title game in back-to-back years for the first time in franchise history.

The sixth-seeded Jets have gotten through Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to punch a ticket to their second straight AFC championship game, leaving Roethlisberger’s Steelers as the last obstacle to their first Super Bowl appearance in 42 years.

“We don’t care what people say or whether they like us,” All-Pro cornerback and Pittsburgh native Darrelle Revis said. “We just focus on what we need to do to win games.”

Based on their game series history, the New York’s above-noted Week 15 win over the Steelers stands as its only positive result in eight lifetime visits to Pittsburgh. That includes the lone postseason encounter between the foes, a 2004 AFC Divisional Playoff at Heinz Field in which the Steelers came through with a 20-17 victory.

Catch the players live via FOX on the said date and time and don’t miss this chance to witness your favourite team Pittsburgh Steelers vs New York Jets for the 2011 AFC Championship Game as they battle for the win the 2011 AFC Championship Game . Enjoy watching the game now.

GAME RESULTS AND RECAP:

Rodgers ran for a score and made a TD-saving tackle in leading the Green Bay Packers into the Super Bowl with a bone-jarring 21-14 victory Sunday over Chicago.

Bears safety Chris Harris vowed all week that he would play in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game despite a hip injury. That appears to be true since he’s active against the Packers after being limited in practice Friday and listed as questionable.

Harris, who’s tied for the team lead with five interceptions, hurt his hip during last week’s divisional playoff victory over the Seahawks.

The Bears also activated TE Desmond Clark, possibly to help protect QB Jay Cutler, and deactivated WR Devin Aromashodu. Clark tweeted Saturday that he would play, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, and it will be just his third game since Oct. 3.

Aromashodu played in the previous 13 games but had just five receptions.

Full inactives list:

Packers
Graham Harrell (No. 3 QB)
DB Pat Lee
RB Dimitri Nance
DB Josh Gordy
LB Frank Zombo
C Evan Dietrich-Smith
G Nick McDonald
DE Jarius Wynn

Bears
Caleb Hanie (No. 3 QB)
WR Devin Aromashodu
DB Joshua Moore
DB Craig Steltz
RB Khalil Bell
OT Herman Johnson
G Edwin Williams
DT Marcus Harrison

Jets Steelers Game Time: At Stake, A Trip To Arlington Texas – World News Insight

Jets Steelers Game Time: At Stake, A Trip To Arlington Texas

Jets Steelers Game Time is near with kickoff set a 6:30 pm from Heinz field in Pittsburgh. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will be making the calls for CBS in this AFC Championship game. One all the dusts (or ice) settles tonight in Pittsburgh, America will know who there two Super Bowl Teams will be in Arlington Texas on February 6, 2011

When the Jets-Steelers game time comes, New York will get their second straight chance to break their four decade Super Bowl drought. Last season, they also reached the AFC championship as a sixth seed, and went up early against a former champion. But Peyton Manning and the Colts ruined their dream in the second half, although New York got their revenge two weeks ago.

After beating the Patriots, winning today would seem to be easier. Yet Pittsburgh had never lost to New York at home until last month, which includes an escape in the 2005 divisional round. The Steelers face a team that wins big on the road in January, but they already beat a squad like that in the Ravens last week.

Pittsburgh started the week favored by a token home bump, but is now favored by four. Game time weather will be a glorious 11 degrees with a 40 percent chance of precipitation, and aren’t we all so glad these games aren’t being played indoors in Georgia? No.

The Jets have become road warriors in the last two year’s worth of playoffs, and have already beaten the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Again, expect to hear lots of criticisms of the Jets having fun and praises of the Steelers trying to assassinate people.
