Neither the Steelers nor Ravens are good road teams this year. But the difference is the Ravens get to stay home for the playoffs and the Ravens have a heathy Qb.
The Steelers would be better off if the Ravens had beaten San diego. Then the Steelers could have rested big Ben instead of playing him in a futile attempt for the 2 seed.
Well, they should have rested him regardless of a win or loss by the Ravens on Sunday. That was just stupid. He shouldn't play the rest of the season either, regardless of how seeding ends up.
My gut tells me that you are correct in that the Ravens will get the bye week. Both the Ravens and the Steelers have a couple of trap games coming up though...and both of the Ravens are division trap games. Everything on paper says that both the Ravens and Steelers should win their next two games....it isn't over till it's over though. Still gotta play the games.
One thing I do know for sure though, both teams (coaches and players) suuuuuuuuuuucked this week.
