    Like BR said the Ravens opened the door once they wont do it again you can also reverse that and say the Ravens dodged a bullett as well this weekend losing and were very very fortunate the Steelers lost last night. They dodged a bullett this weekend if they lose in Cincy on New Years Day the odds are probably 95-100 percent that they wont dodge that bullet and the Steelers will take advantage this time and win the division...

    There will be no excuses what so ever for the Steelers to drop either game to the Rams or the Browns these final 2 weeks. Will both games be cakewalks?? Probably not but it still doesnt excuse the fact that the Steelers will have absolutely no business what so ever losing to either one of these teams which I dont expect them too...

    If they lose either one of these game, then they truly don't belong in the playoffs.

    The Bengals fighting for a play-off spot will be a tough game......There is a chance of the Bengals beating the Ravens but I'm still pissed about last night and the Steelers blowing their chance to take control......

    Isn't it annoying that once again we're counting on someone else to get the job done for us, when we had ample opportunities to get it done ourselves?

    Your right, but we've been all over the map as well.

    I really thought this team had turned the corner after whipping the bengals. Granted it didn't help with Ben getting hurt but he was the only one hurt. No excuse for the rest of the team to play like crap.

    Steelers are already in the playoffs so technically, and I hate that word, the Steelers are playing with house money. Would have been nice to secure HFA throughout playoffs, but as wel all know, having HFA doesn't guarantee a trip to the Superbowl for this team.

    No doubt man, blowing that opportunity last night with everything that's happened this season just makes it all the worse. You have a chance to make amends for the missed opportunities you had before, to get on a roll and ensure your own home field destiny lies within your control. I had a bad feeling going into last night that it was going to be ugly but I didn't foresee 4 turnovers, what a disaster.

    I'm not ready to hand the division to the ravens just yet, that Cincy game could be very interesting. They won't roll over and die like in years past.

    My issue is can the Steelers take care of their own issues, get healthy and finish out strong? You'd like to think so but I can't stake my life on it by any stretch.

    Blah
    Face it. The divison was lost last night.

    Not out of the realm of possibility for Baltimore to lose, but highly unlikely.
