Here at Cappers Info, we've got our thumb on all of the NFL props for the biggest games of the season. Today, we are looking at the AFC Championship Game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets, and we are making our NFL prop picks for the game. All NFL lines courtesy of BetUS Sportsbook.

Mark Sanchez Under 1.5 TD Passes: Let's be real here… Are the Jets really scoring two TDs in this game? Sanchez might be an improving signal caller, but this is a significantly different challenge against a Pittsburgh defense that doesn't surrender two TDs often, let alone two TDs that both come through the air. We also know that if something happens to Sanchez, this NFL prop pick is a winner.

Ben Roethlisberger Over 21 Completions: The Steelers really do trust Big Ben, and if you want to see an example of that, just check out the fact that he put the pigskin in the air a whopping 32 times last week against one of the most ferocious defenses in the gmae. Roethlisberger had at least 21 completions five times over the course of the last eight games of the season, and we are expecting him to do enough damage in this one to be able to get to this sort of a number as well, especially if the Steelers do end up really getting challenged, if not in a spot where they might lose this game.

Dustin Keller to Not Score a TD: We know that the Steelers really haven't done a great job this year beating up on tight ends, as these are usually the men that end up having no choice but to do a ton of the grunt work, as quarterbacks usually don't have the time to get the ball up the field to their streaking receivers. However, Keller hasn't scored a TD since October 3rd, a stretch of 13 straight games that he has played in without finding the end zone. There's no reason to think that, against one of the best defenses that the game has to offer, that all of a sudden, Keller is going to find his way to pay dirt.

Rashard Mendenhall Under 72.5 Rushing Yards: We know, we can already hear your screaming. The Jets gave up 100 yards to Mendenhall on just 19 carries a month ago when these two teams met here at Heinz Field, but this just feels like a totally different matchup against a team that is really playing its best ball right now. New York knows that it has one of the best rush defenses in the league, and even though Pittsburgh generally plays a smash mouth type of a game, it isn't going to make a huge difference. The Steelers won't have 100 yards on the ground as a team, and if that's the case, there's no hope to get Mendenhall into the 70s.
