The bengals might be the team to take then out in week 17. They likely will be playing for their playoff lives and will bring it. Who knows tho, the chargers are hot right now and the ravens have to travel cross country to play em. That's why they play the games.....

They are getting hot, they always seem to do something at the end of a season that looks like it had no chance. Rivers is just having a bad year but I have a feeling hes gonna have a good game...Im countin on him

How much would it suck if Baltimore loses and we lay an egg in San Francisco? I'm up and down on this one. One moment I believe we can handle the 9'ers and the next I think about our injuries/suspensions and it just seems like an up-hill battle going on the road to San Fran givin how beat up we are and how physical they are. This one, is going to be a nail-biter.

If Ben, Pouncey and Woodley play, we have a good chance of winning simply because our defense will be able to hold down their offense enough that our offense can outscore them.

If Woodley is out, it gets significantly tougher, especially if Polamalu is also out (he's listed as questionable) although to my knowledge that should not be an issue.

If Pouncey is out it hurts us significantly on the offensive line when we are already playing a staunch run defense.

If Ben is out, you have to think we lose playing against a 10-win team without the captain of our offense.

If all three play, I think we got them. Prediction: 20-13

I still think this defense can shut down this offense, which is nothing really special (I thought it was, giving that Alex Smith is at the helm, but they are really no that much when facing a stiff defense). The steelers have the ability to stop the rush alot better than they were doing during the first month of the season, and their cornerbacks can shutdown the Niners recievers. the only player that worry me really on their offense is Frank Gore. Ill give credit to the Niners on how the design their runs, but I think the Steelers defense are up for the task.

The steelers offense is what worries me right now, whichc is pretty suprising to me as they have been playing very good lately( barring three games, they have scored at least 20 points since that week 4 lost to Houston, which for this Defense, is mostly all you need.) The offensive line maybe without its center for the first time this season, and maybe Kemo might start (bad idea if he does); and even if Ben plays (I think he does, no way he he misses a monday night game against this defense), he will be limited and cant be as mobile as he usually is. and for the running game, i am not expecting much from it; it has been streaky at best and Mendenhall has not been playing well so far this season, and the Steelers are also facing the number 1 rush Defense.

Overall, I expect this to be a very close, low scoring game. I do believe the Steelers defense will rise to the occasion in 4th like they have since the Ravens loss and make a play or two to seal the game.

13-6 steelers.

"and green bay or the saints will rape us come playoffs if we even now get the second seed if we lose to the steelers"

"everyone one on this offence sucks just sucks wheres the football OMFG cant see it 10-3 is great but now the steelers and the hawks at home we are in trouble of lossing the second seed cause now we are tied for it"

"Look at the Steelers and Giants offenses. They were FAAAAAAAAR better than ours. Far better. "

"If Harbaugh holds back the player that has given this team any glimmering hopes of winning for the past 6 years or so I am only left to assume that we loose to the Steelers. Our defense is going to bend against the Steelers. Its a given. If our offense keeps the ball on the ground and burns up the time long enough our defense will have enough time to rest instead of staying on the field all night after our offense goes 3 and out. If not, our defense will eventually break."

"I don't believe Alex can lead us to a win vs the Steelers!"



I take nothing for granted but I'm confident we can win this game.
Great info! Some smart guys over there!

if we score a td on the opening drive, we will win the game. the 49ers are not a team that is built to play from behind. if they score on us first, it will be a nail biter.

That's a good point, the 49ers seem to score at a slow steady pace, if we jump ahead, than I feel good about our chances. Also it is true that the 49ers play in a weak division and have had a relatively easy schedule, with loses to the Ravens Cowboys and Cardinals, I think it's safe to say they are over rated and as long as we have the majority of our stars playing we will win in a low scoring game ... 13-10 or something.

Im not trying to start anything but you think the CHARGERS are hot right now because what they beat the JAGS and Buffalo. I dont think this game will even be close, Phillips is 2 in INTs. Nuff said, i expect Our Defense to score atleast once and expect atleast 2 ints from RIVERS.
