    Looking at who won today already the Steelers already are behind and playing catch up to both the Ravens and Bengals in the division but also good teams in the AFC like the Jags,Pats,KC who they see next week just to name a few. They can overcome this tie I think but it’s going to stick out like a sore thumb I have a bad feeling down the road this season when it comes to tiebreakers and potential home field. So gotta start winning games here and better start next week against KC. These next 3 games for the Steelers all of a sudden with the Chiefs, Bucs, and Ravens aren’t looking so easy anymore. They can definitely lose at least 2 of these next 3 games if they are not careful. Gotta make up for today by winning these next 3 games. 4 of the next 6 games for the Steelers are at home at least where they play much better so gotta take advantage of this starting right away next week against the Chiefs.

    A tie usually hurts more than it helps near the end of the season when playoff seeding takes place. The tie vs. Cleveland will come back to bite the Steelers.

    I think the Steelers worse case scenario better go 4-2 in these next 6 games against the Chiefs,Bucs,Ravens,Falcons,Bengals, and Browns. Four of the six games are at Heinz Field and anything worse then 4-2 in this stretch is really gonna our the Steelers in a bad way to even still win this division. They gotta make up for this tie yesterday by either winning 4 or 5 of their next 6 games. They need to be either 4-2-1 or 5-1-1 heading into November anything less then that would be a disaster I feel.

    At the end of the season if the rats are 10-6 and we are 10-5-1 we win the division with that tie, so a tie does mean something in the final tabulation......

    Yeah, but it usually doesn't work out that way. Ravens could end up 11-5 and if we are 10-5-1... we get screwed.

    I’m trying to find the silver lining here. Therefore I’m equating this to the Bears game we lost last year and should have won. In that event, a tie is better than that loss.

    That’s the best I could come up with.

    It's better to have a tie than a loss in division standings, I think the last tie we had was against the falcons in 2002, we won the division out right without the tie that year, the rats play the bengals on thursday night after this sundays games, one of them will get a loss and if we beat the chiefs which based off the clown game seems unlikely, we will be in second place in the division with that tie, but the truth is I hate ties ....

    We will be 0-3-1 after week 4 and pretty much out of any division or home field talk so the tie wont matter

    Got to beat em when we play them. Team needs to just focus and not look ahead often that seems like an issue.

    Tyrik Hill was just a flash in the Chargers defense yesterday. Someone has their hands filled sunday.

    Yea this KC game won’t be easy. I expect Ben and the offense to be better and score points in this game. But KC with Mahomes now I feel are a threat to score more points then a team with Alex Smith. I feel the Steelers really need to win this game to get this Browns tie out of their minds and put it behind them. I think a loss to KC at home on Sunday could really potentially start to send things on a downward spiral.

    If a Rookie QB tears this Steeler D up, someone needs a firing.

    Ravens play the Bungles next week so someone will be 2 and 0, someone 1 and 1 and the Steelers will be 1-0-1.

    What if they Tie?
    That would have the whole division with a tie and could be our best scenario.
