    Steelers are 2 wins and 1 Ravens loss away from a first roung bye.

    Thanks to Indy. Not probable, but Cincy will still be playing for their playoff lives next week.

    Several things point to the Bengals having a good chance to win:
    1. Ravens play bad on the road.
    2. Flacco has a history of losing to the Bengals.
    3. Bengals have more to play for than the Ravens.
    4. Boldin is out

    Ultimately I expect the Ravens to win out and not blow the chance at the bye again. It wouldn't surprise me at all if they did lose though so there is a chance I just think it doesn't happen.

    I knew Houston would lose last night in Indy and the Steelers would still have a chance to get that number 2 seed if they win out and the Ravens lose one... Dont be surprised if the Browns with Seneca Wallace give the Rats a tough game tomorrow in Baltimore as well. It's still very possible so still a lot of football left to be played and determined these last few weeks...

    It'd only be fair. They took out our most important offensive player.

    You know..in 2008 and 2010, things clearly Fell nicely into place and we were fortunate to not have to play on the road in Tenn and and N.E.....we would not have played in 2 SB's had the Ravens and Jets not helped us...you can say we were a bit 'lucky' though many will just say 'they' didnt get the job done, but I know last yr my biggest Nightmare was playing The Pats.....so I see no reason why we the Ravens wont lose to the bengels, I said the ravens wouldnt lose to the chargers and they got a beat down. they suck on the road

    I think we get 'lucky' again...though still likely have to travel to N.E. where we have a 50/50 shot at best

    In the NFL, every super bowl winning team has some of Lady Lucks Graciousness fall their way during the season. There's not a championship team in history that didn't have a fluke call go their way, an lucky bounce on a fumble, a blown coverage late in the game by the defense, something that helps propel them to a win in a key game.

    The Steelers have not had much of that this year, but today is a next step towards being ready and on a roll for the post season. The Rams stand in their way.

    Nothing is settled yet and unless something bad happens today for the Steelers, we won't have it completely settled until next Sunday.

    pull for the giants to beat the rex/jets. will give the bengals even more incentive to beat the ravens next week.
    "Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward
