After watching the games this afternoon I have difficulty seeing the Ravens losing at home to New Orleans and certainly not to the Bengals

Steelers should be favored in 10 of their last 12 games (will be road dog at New Orleans and Baltimore)

Ravens should be road dogs in New England and Atlanta

Both teams presumably will screw up 1 or 2 games in which they are favored

If the Steelers lose in Baltimore they will lose the division

Yeah, you know, after watching some games today I tend to agree with you. Right now, there aren't a lot of teams that look really solid week to week...but the Ravens may be the exception right now. Anything can happen though (and has been happening so far this season), so a total meltdown from them for a few games wouldn't surprise me in the least.

It's really shaping up to be a very parity filled season. I'm loving it.

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 don't see us losing those 3 games The Raven's will be the tough as always. Lady Brady and the bunch will be tough for about 1 quarter and he will wish Moss was back and the Aint's are heading for a losing season and should be 0-4 instead of 3-1. I like our chances of be 12-4 real good right now. If Ben was out for the season I would say 9-7 then.

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.
He's always been a turnover machine, it just took a couple years before his luck ran out. Kurt Warner was the same way, he was throwing 30+ touchdowns a year, but he was turning the ball over 30+ times just by himself

We're tied for first in the division, so if we win the games we're supposed to win, and beat the Ravens in our next game, the division is ours. Not complicated. As usual, winning is the answer.
