Staff Picks:

This is a game black-and-gold fans will be watching closely, and that’s based on both playoff hopes and the draft order. The Steelers would benefit from a Buffalo win, so they don’t feel as if they should rest players in Week 18. Why does this matter? The Steelers need the Bills to beat the Patriots in Week 18. Likewise, the Bengals can clinch the AFC North with a win in prime time, but they too will want to try and keep the top spot in the AFC within reach. As always, some football is better than no football, so follow along with other Pittsburgh Steelers fans in the comment section below as the open thread.

In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black and gold. And continue counting down the days until the Steelers play the Cleveland Browns in Week 18 of the regular season.
