Pittsburgh Steelers Can Lose to Bengals Sunday and Still Have Chance to Make Playoffs

I blame you, Steelers. It’s your fault my journalistic accuracy has been compromised this week. First, I wrote that a Dolphins win over the Patriots Sunday afternoon would mathematically eliminate the Steelers from playoff contention, regardless of what the Steelers do against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night.
