IMO it will be very tough to get a top 2 seed and a bye with our schedule and injuries combined.
Buffalo has a very easy schedule and looks decent and Tennesee is also solid. I think we can beat any team in the leauge specially when healthy but we can (and likely will) loose some games down the strech.
Hopefully we will have the division wrapped up quickly and rest some key players the last week or 2 in lie of getting a bye.

Those games are eligible for flex scheduling. If any of those games develop in such a way that there are seeding implications and the scheduled SNF or MNF game will feature dogs, ESPN or NBC can move one of the starred games into the primetime slot and kick the dog game back to the Sunday networks.

The Steelers got "killed" by the Pats last season. The SAME Pats that the G Men beat in the Super Bowl. And? Everyone is entitled to a bad day at the office. The Browns turned back into the Clowns against the Skins by fumbling away opportunites to win. You forget that when they faced the G Men, they were coming off a bye and Anderson was playing for his job at that point. That was their "Super Bowl" so to speak. I think you are making way too much over their win over the G Men. The G Men have a very good Offense as well. Can be a little inconsistant at times, but it is a pretty good offense. We can't make stupid mistakes like we did againt the 9ers, but I think we did a good job. The Steelers O Line is gonna have their hands full against this Giants pass rush.

Redskins are very physical on defense. Their offense is ok. Not great. Romo will probably be fine by the game with them rolls around. I think that game could be winnable. I don't think they are particularly tough mentally. Too much mouth and they don't back it up on the field.
Sorry, not trying to say the Giants and Redskins won't beat us. But some people write them off as a loss and I don't see them as automatic losses. I agree with Tennessee and their defense but I don't believe Collins is going to be the one to beat us. All three games could go either way and are not automatic losses. People have been writing that the Redskins is a loss since the preseason. I just don't see that they are that tough. Unfortunately it sounds like we might be without Troy for the next game which is a big loss. I just hope that Woodley and Harrison fluster Eli into some huge mistakes.

I'm really wary about not having Mcfadden and perhaps Troy for the Giants game. They're deep in the weapons department and we definitely don't need to be getting any thinner in the defense.

The Giants will be without MLB Antonio Pierce (defensive leader - mike'd helmet).
If ever there was a time for Ben to practice his 3 step drop, it's this week.

I really believe the Titans are overrated. Jeff Fisher is the best coach in the league.

The Steelers have a good chance of playing well and coming out of the Storm with a good record.
Teams like the Pats, Chargers, Colts, Browns, Bungles, Ravens we can all hand them a loss.

The Steelers only need to stick to the game plan and no huddle, and don't shoot themselves in the foot with turnovers against the good teams.

We are very solid team all around and having the number one defense helps. We shut down the run game causing the team to pass more often, giving into turnovers and putting the game in Ben's hand which i always trust.
The Steelers can finish the season anywhere from 10-6 to 12-4. BELIEVE!

I don't think anyboby is writing ANY game off as an automatic loss. We were picking some of the "possible" losses based on what were thought of as the tougher games. Which now looks a bit different then when the season began.

At the beginning of the season I predicted the Steelers would go 10-6. They would only have to play 500 ball to achieve that. At this point, I believe they will do better.

I just hope that we head into the playoffs just hitting our stride.

Think about it. We really haven't played any games where our offense and defense have hit their stride at the same time...

Now this IS the Pittsburgh Steelers, and you KNOW that they WILL hit their stride at some time. Could you just imagine if that time was our Game against the Browns in December?

What a GREAT time to do it!
