The Pittsburgh Steelers will certainly be watching the Monday Night Football game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos, as it could have implications in their hopes of claiming a spot in the AFC Playoffs. There are two scenarios which could see the Steelers make the posteason:

Scenario 1:

New York Jets lose to the Buffalo Bills +
Steelers defeat the Cleveland Browns

Scenario 2:

Denver Broncos lose to the Cincinnati Bengals +
Denver Broncos lose to the San Diego Chargers +
Steelers defeat the Cleveland Browns

If the Broncos win on Monday Night Football they clinch a playoff spot, and make the Steelers' two-part scenario singular. With that said, there will be a lot on the line for the Steelers as they hope to just get a shot at playing after Week 17.
