I think this game is do or die this Sunday- anyone agree? disagree? To me it's very simple: Fail against Cin., and the season's over- no playoffs. Look at the schedule, look how things are shaking out in the mediocre-at-midpoint AFC. The Steelers will finish 11 - 5- almost no way around that, barring injury to Ben. BUT- there will likely be 3 non-division winner teams at 11 - 5- so there will be an odd man out at 11 - 5 this year- similar to what happened to pats a few years back. Yes- I'm saying that there will be 3 NDW 11 - 5 teams coming from mediocrity: Steelers, Jets or Pats or Bills, and Ravens or Bengals. I don't think the steelers will hold tiebreaks in most cases.
