Default Whats it going to take to win the AFCN????

Well, IMO I think that loss last week really hurt our chances of winning the AFCN.......yeah we get Ben back, so we should be in the mix but its going to be really tough

Now we are either

A. Get that W back by Beating Balt at their house....which historically we never do

B. Sweep the Browns and Bengals and win 3-4 against both the AFC East and NFC South


Balt doesn't lose to cupcakes and they pretty much own the AFC East...The only teams I give a shot against them is Saints, Texans, Bengals

If 2-3 of those 3 don't beat them, then they win the Division

....We still have to prove we can beat the Bengals and Browns and we don't match up as well against the AFC East as good as Balt does.

The Bengals would be a factor if they didn't have to play a 1st place schedule, but they could still play a major part in determining who wins this division depending on what they do in their games against us an Balt

I think its going to take no worse then 13-3 to win it this year.

Right now if I had to predict our Record Id say

at worst we are 9-7

and at best we are 12-4......with last weeks loss costing us a division crown

Games I see us losing

Balt, NE, NO

How do you guys see it shaking out

I say the Ravens go 11-5 at best, with losses (after the one they've already lost to the Bungles) coming from NO, NE, Falcons and Steelers. I think they will have trouble beating the Texans and Bungles again too, so 9-7 is possible as well I think.

Steelers have a chance, with Ben, to go 12-4 or better. I think they drop one to the Bungles, Saints and Jets.

This could all go completely the other way too, we could lose to Oakland, Browns (once) and the Panthers and blow out the Jets, Saints and Bungles. Who knows.

I highly doubt it's going to take 13-3 to win the division though. The Ravens year to year have trouble staying healthy, and I think that will have an impact on the team down the stretch, and the Bengals won't go better than 10-6. 11-5 or 12-4 wins the division this year.

I'm hoping Denver can somehow pull a win. I think we'll go either 13-3 or 14-2, unless we have another 2nd half of season breakdown

game's already over, denver's not gonna win. tampa bay is lookin good vs cincy though

the browns lost seneca wallace putting delhomme in the game. automatic lose for them

speaking of delhomme what the hell happened to that guy? He was actually having himself a good career until that playoff game against arizona, then never seemed the same since.

Delhomme is injured so I guess McCoy starts next week. Fresh meat for our angry defense.

Even though Denver lost, it shows that the Ravens defense is not number one against the pass

Im not ready to fully judge them yet, they don't have ED back there

Make no mistake about it, we're going to have to go through hell to win this division back


The Steelers need to show a sense of urgency next week and pound out a good W against the Browns.....we drop a home game to the browns and you definitely could kiss the division goodbye

I highly doubt we'll lose the Bengals game...

I repeat what Fire Arians had said: We will beat Baltimore

The Steelers will beat the Browns next Sunday.

Steelers for the AFC North champions will be my pick...

the loss to the ravens was essentially a 2 and a half game swing.

sure woulda been nice to have that one in our back pocket.
