    With this O Line and Run D I don’t know how they beat a team period. Granted they almost came back vs Diego but yea not seeing it. Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades

    They weren't favored to win on the road against Buffalo, and Cleveland but they won both games.

    I think 9-7-1 gets them in I really do. But yea one of those 9 wins better be Sunday in Cincinnati. The difference in winning and losing this game Sunday is the Steelers if they win improve to 6-4-1 and 2-1 in the AFC North overall and drops the Bengals to 6-5 and 2-2 in the AFC North overall, while losing this game drops the Steelers to 5-5-1 and 1-2 in the AFC North overall and the Bengals would improve to 7-4 and 3-1 overall in the AFC North. I been saying it all week I think this game sets up well for the Steelers to win and while the Bengals are a good team and improved I don’t see them sweeping the Steelers at least not this year not yet.

    They were also favored at home against the raiders, bungles, and lions too and we see how that worked out.

    So which 5 of the last 7 games are you calling wins then? Put your money where your mouth is.

    If you view the Steelers as a playoff team, then yes it’s a must-win. I’m just not sure they are. I look at this year as more of a transition year and just hope for some improvement in future seasons.

    I don't think any of the games are sure wins for Pittsburgh, but for fans to act like they can't win any of them is nonsense, their best chance for wins is Titans, Vikings, Browns, and a split with the Ravens IMO.

    I think so, we have to split with both Baltimore and Cincy
    for a chance to make playoffs.

    It’s not a must win for playoff contention. Remember they added a game and I bet 9 will get you in. But, it’s a must win for division.

    Guarantee they’re not playing for next years draft position. Nor should they.
