    Steelers: at Cincy, Bye week, Browns

    Bengals: Steelers, at KC, Tampa

    Ravens: at Tennessee, Saints, at Carolina

    Browns: Chargers, at Tampa, at Steelers

    Looking at those schedules I like the Steelers chances if they win in Cincy this week of being 4-2-1 going into that Ravens game in Baltimore on November 4th and possibly being in 1st place. I think the Ravens will lose possibly at least one maybe 2 games in the next 3 weeks, the Bengals if the Steelers beat them Sunday which is such a huge huge swing game have a pretty good chance of losing in KC the following week to drop them to 4-3. And the Browns I feel could either win or lose any of these games but as long as the Steelers beat them they will stay ahead of them in the standings. So this game with the Bengals Sunday will really kind of be a swing game I feel for the entire season. The Steelers really need to have it.

    I could see the Ravens lose 2 of their next 3 games. The same with the Browns.

    Steelers can beat the Browns at Heinz Field. The Bengals are the team I'm worried about. Hopefully the Ravens will continue to choke.

    This game is mightily huge for the Steelers, Sunday if they wish to stay in the race to win the division. Too bad the Dolphins went to hell in a hand basket in the 4th quarter yesterday.

    Dolphins will do their usual "fold like a cheap tent" routine. Jets will end up 2nd best in AFC East.

    Not sure what we've shown to you that makes you think we can beat both the Bengals and Browns but Ok - I'll play along.

    If we want to win the division - or make the playoffs for that matter - we need to beat the the Raven's and Browns for sure. If we lose to the Bengals we can still recover as long as we split with them. My math says we can only lose 3 more games MAX and still make the playoffs. Sure there's a chance that 9-6-1 makes it but If we want to win the division we have to go 9-2 the rest of the season. If we are lucky 10-5-1 wins the division but highly doubtful.

    I just do not see us winning the division. No way. The only consistent thing Tomlin's steelers have done during his career is play inconsistently. At this point I still think we will be lucky to make the playoffs. If we do it's as the 2nd wildcard. Given our goal is to win the SB , I'm not feeling so good about this season. I have zero faith in Tomlin winning a playoff game ever.

    I predict:
    Bengals (4-1): PIT, @KC, TB = 5-3
    Steelers (2-2-1): @CIN, bye, CLE = 4-2-1
    Ravens (3-2): @TEN, NO, @CAR = 4-4
    Browns (2-2-1): LAC, @TB, @PIT = 3-4-1

    The Browns game concerns me more than the Bungles. That is one swarming defense now boys and girls.

    I am certain both Vontez and JuJu will "love" seeing each other come next week. Going to be interesting to see if Burfict is up to no good.


    Regarding both Baltimore and Cleveland, those are must wins. Nevermind division wins but the conference wins are also necessary. Need those to secure some tie breaking scenarios come playoff time.

    I think the Rats go 2-1
    If Cincy beats us, they go 2-1 also
    Browns only win will be if they beat us.
    AFCN no cakewalk this year.

    Alot of you before the season also were never worried about the browns. If baker started week 1 we lose that game. The nfl differs year to year.

    Bengals are 0-7 under Lewis in the playoffs. doesnt seem like the Bengals differ from year to year.. And I picked the browns to win over the Steelers in week one. So don't clump us all together

    With the tie it is unlikely any tie breaking scenarios will be needed.

    I think if you consider the Steelers slow start to this season it's very beneficial that the Browns are much better. They already beat the Ravens, which means they might be giving the Bengals hard games as well. We better be ready for when they come to Heinz Field.

    If you think about the Browns they could of beat us week one, they could of won week 2 if not for their kicker, they won week 3, should of won week 4, but a reviewed call screwed them and then they browned it away. Then they beat the Ravens
    Browns could of easily been 4-1 team to start the year, and their offense hasn't clicked for them yet. But, their defense is very good. I guess that is what you get after having tons of 1st round picks for the last few years, (OK 15 years).

    Correct 0-7 in the playoffs. But we arent talking about playoffs. Also during the Lewis regime they have made the playoffs while we have missed it. I'm strictly talking reg season.

    The Bengals are a solid team this year but until they do something in the playoffs or stop Bengaling against the Steelers nothing about them I can take seriously

    A rookie QB making his first start in terrible weather, and you think he would win that game just because he's playing decent right now.
