The Steelers despite their horrific 2-3 start with terrible losses to both the Raiders and Titans still now have a tremendous opportunity ahead of them starting this weekend to get right back in this division race by beating the Bengals and jumping ahead of them in the standings by a 1/2 game with a head to head win, and the Ravens with all their huge injuries to guys like Lewis and Webb having to go into Houston this weekend and play a pissed off Texans team who just got smacked around by the Packers at home last night. Both the Bengals and Ravens have their bye weeks next Sunday on October 28th which simply means this.
If the Steelers win the next 2 games at Cincy and at home against the Redskins they will push their record to 4-3 and assuming the Ravens lose in Houston on Sunday which I definitely believe they will do they will be 5-2 going into their bye week which means the Steelers would have a chance to pull within 1 full game of the Ravens with still 2 games left to play against them going into November, and they would also be 1 full game up on Cincy who would be 3-4 with a head to head loss to the Steelers. This is it right here right now this week. This is the Steelers opportunity to get back into this race this weekend. The schedule the next 2 weeks finally favors the Steelers in a big big way and they absolutely MUST take full advantage of this on the heels of all these Ravens injuries.
