Steelers do their job today and get a ton of help as well this weekend as the Colts lose Thursday night and the Raiders today unexpectedly get absolutely stomped by the Jets. Oakland losing is huge because they have to go to Kansas City next Sunday in a game they will probably lose and drop them to 6-6 and 4-4 in the conference. So if the Steelers win next week against the Browns and get to 7-5 and 6-3 overall in the conference that would be a huge moving forward and would give them a huge edge over the Raiders moving forward for that last spot. Keep in mind as long as the Colts and Steelers have the same record the Steelers will stay ahead of them based on head to head tiebreaker. So the Steelers playoff chances most definitely improved today with this win. The Browns are up next who all of a sudden are 5-6 and are one win over the Steelers away from passing them in the standings for a wildcard spot. Huge huge two game swing next week. A Steelers win puts them at 7-5 and the Browns at 5-7 and pretty much knocks the Browns out of wildcard contention. So a ton on the line next week here at Heinz Field but for now things are looking very good for the Steelers and their playoff chances. They very much improved today and this weekend with all the results that took place.
