i apologize if something like this has already been posted. here's how i see the Steelers still winning the AFC North despite losing last night.
Steelers remaining schedule:
@ Cincinnati, BYE, @ Kansas City, vs Cincinnati, vs. Cleveland, @ San Francisco, vs. St. Louis, @Cleveland
i have the Steelers winning 6 of their last 7 with their only loss being @ San Francisco. that gives the Steelers a record of 12-4.
Ravens remaining schedule:
@ Seattle, vs Cincinnati, vs San Francisco, @ Cleveland, vs Indianapolis, @ San Diego, vs Cleveland, @ Cincinnati
i have the Ravens losing against San Francisco, @ San Diego, and @ Cincinnati. i wouldn't even be surprised if Baltimore loss to Seattle this Sunday since they've already loss to Jacksonville and i think the Seahawks are better than the Jags. anyway, i have the Ravens finishing 11-5 at best!!
now, the key from the Steelers perspective is this Sunday against Cincinnati. if Pittsburgh wins that game, and i have them winning 23-10, than i'm 100% certain they're going finish 12-4. if they stumble and lose on Sunday, i can see the season getting out of hand and looking like 2009 again.
get through Sunday with a win and Pittsburgh should get Woodley and possibly Farrior back after the Bye Week. i'm assuming Emmanuel Sanders will be back this week against the Bengals.
