We can pretty much start saying this every week now but today once again is another huge huge game for the Steelers. Win today and the Steelers pull within 1 game of the Ravens with still 2 games left to play against them heading into November. Lose today and you fall 2 games behind the Ravens having to go on the road one week from today and play the defending Super Bowl champions on the road who are playing very well right now. The bottom line is the Redskins are an improved team this season but they have still lost to teams such as the Rams and the Bengals and are very beatable and the Steelers play much better at home.

If this game was in DC I would probably pick the Skins to win in a close one. But the Steelers play much much better at home and I expect Ben to have a big big day against this Redskins secondary who is dead last in the NFL in pass defense. The next 2 games after this one today against the Skins are at the Giants next Sunday and then at home against the Chiefs on Monday night. You have to like the Steelers chances to beat the Chiefs at home in 2 weeks,and the Giants game while it will be very tough still do not play very good at home and almost lost games at home this season to the Bucs,Browns and Redskins. But first things first you have to win this game today and get to 4-3 and pull within a game of the Ravens and then go into New York next weekend and take your chances. Pretty close to another MUST WIN game today. If you lose and fall to 3-4 heading into New York next weekend then things once again are going to start to look very very bad...

Every game from here on out is going to be huge. The team dug themselves into an early hole and this is what it is going to be like for the rest of the year.
