This is it.
If the Steelers win their five divisional games, they will basically break even (catch up) with the rest of the division. Going 3-3 in the other games brings the Steelers up to 9-7... which might be enough to win the division.
The AFC is weak this year... aside from the Broncos.
The Chiefs have already essentially won a wild card spot. That leaves one other... and I don't see any team that the Steelers can't pass up.
Every game should be seen as a "one game play-off"... just like the end of 2005. No looking past any team... don't even worry about the record: just win this ONE game... and that is ALL that the Steelers should worry about.
