The AFC Championship game gets a Star Wars makeover

The New England Patriots have been deemed the Empire of the NFL. They’ve dominated the AFC so far with a 14-2 record.

Whether they are good or evil has yet to be determined considering past accusations. But that’s nothing to get deflate- I mean defeated about.

But there is one team out there that can challenge them: The Pittsburgh Steelers!

And the Pittsburgh Post- Gazette dubbed the Patriots as the Evil Empire on its cover. The cover also features a football shaped Death Star and a Millennium Falcon with the Steelers logo on it.

Take a look!

The AFC Championship game is this Sunday, January 22 at 6:40 p.m. ET.


Do you think the Empire will strike back?
