Good teams make those plays.
The point is still the same: this season is far from over for PITT.
BALT is 5-1, but could very easily be 2-4... if a FG is made (DAL), if a TD isn't taken away (KC), and if a FG is not given to them (NE).
The difference between the "top seed" & "where the Steelers currently reside" is a slim margin.
The Ravens are also now having to deal with injuries... something that the Steelers have already been dealing with. The Ravens WILL drop 4-5 more games, specifically, the two head-to-head games against the Steelers. And, the Steelers are going to get healthier.
The Taperiots are 3-3... as is every team in their division. The Chargers & Broncos are both 3-3. And, while the Texans have looked really good, they just lost Brian Cushing.
And, the only undefeated team (the Falcons) got pummeled by the Raidahs... barely eking out a win. OAK dominated every facet if that game, except for the score. In other words, the league is rife with parody; anybody can beat anyone on any given Sunday. Here is an even better example of this parody:
The Cards beat the Taperiots, who beat the Bills, who beat the Cards. (Make sense?)
