Due to the Chiefs and Texans both winning in Week 12, and having a better AFC record, it keeps the Steelers on the outside looking in on the most recent playoff picture. In fact, since the Steelers AFC record is so poor, it has them now behind the Jets in the AFC Playoff Picture.
The Steelers will now have a week to let this most recent loss fester, and will have a chance to rebound against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football in Week 13 at Heinz Field.
