Re: Steelers will make the playoffs!
You guys should pull up the standings and look the schedule. We are currently the 6th seed, but let's assume Ben doesn't come back and we lose. We'd be 6-6.
A few teams that won't win out 4-7
The Colts still play Houston twice, though one of those may be meaningless for Houston. They are the most likely to be the 5th seed.
Cincy is hot, but they still play us and Baltimore.
Miami plays SF and New England twice.
I'm not saying the Bengals are going to collapse and lose out, but they are the Bengals until i'm shown otherwise. We beat Cincy, and we can probably make the playoffs at 9-7.
I'm not saying we'd be the best team, but the AFC is really down. It will not be farfetched to go 3-2 from here on out and make it.
