    Let’s have fun and see if anyone can predict it. Most probably will say Ravens.

    I was going to do this yesterday. I was going to have some sort of tiebreaker but couldn't think of a good one.

    The last 2 games of season could be way more important to the Colts and Browns then they are to us. We may have clinched our Playoff seed by then.

    But, only one team gets a bye week this year. So I think you'll see teams try to go all out to secure that number one seed.

    5% chance of a perfect season according to some CBS simulation

    The Bengals are going to be the first loss. Burrow is no joke and cincy is improving every week. The only knock on them is there defense can't stop anyone. With how poorly the secondary is playing I'm expecting big numbers from Burrow. I'm also thinking that our offense will score but not enough to get by, cincy 31 - Pit 24. BTW, I really, really hope I'm wrong but the defense against the ravens was putrid. The difference is they are making splash plays and that is not going to happen every week.

    Different issue with the Ravens, they were running it right up the gut with Alualu, Bush and Mike Hilton all absent and then living off play action.

    Bengals will need to pass consistently to beat the Steelers. I don’t see how they do this with that OLine they have and the Steelers pass rush bearing down on them. Steelers get 4-5 sacks imo.

    On the other side the Bengals defence is woeful, Steelers should put 28-30 on them minimum. Any given Sunday of course, but I’d be shocked if the Bengals beat the Steelers, especially at Heinz Field. They don’t have the personnel to do it right now imo. If they played 10 times the Steelers probably win 8-9

    Buffalo's got my vote. Bengals might give us a scare but I think our pass rush gives Burrows a frustrating day and leads to a couple of turnovers.

    I like our chances with the Ravens at home. Defense will be looking to correct the putrid run game awfulness and we should have some of our run stuffers back from injury. Lamar Jackson passing the ball doesn't scare me.

    Steelers SNF at the Bills in mid December with them most likely fighting for a playoff spot. That's going to be a tough out no matter how good our past successes in prime time have been. Should we win that one it won't get much easier down the final stretch. I see 14-2 by seasons end and hopefully that #1 seed.

    Surprised at the Bengals. Yes, Burrows is going to be a thorn in our side but not just yet. That first game against them is in da Burgh and I'm confident it won't be a good day for Joe.

    For me, it is Indy. Phillip Rivers does not scare me personally. Their Offensive Line is still among the best in the game; Quenton Nelson leading the charge there. That improved Defense though is something that does warrant some concern.

    The Bills they will need that game more than us by that time. Also something tells me that game will be played with snow on the ground.

    Considering the Steelers didn't lose a single pre-season game this year including the HOF game.............................the only team that will beat the Steelers...................are the Steelers themselves. :cool:

    My guess is Buffalo. Many will overreact to the loss, including me.

    Minshew will light us up is my pick. Hot day in Jacksonville will be their first loss in this game.

    In 8 games he has been sacked 28x and has many more hits. What you say may happen, he is tough and very good, but those hits are going to take a toll in him.

    Doubt Minshew will be back. Multiple broken bones in your throwing hand is not a two or three week problem.

    If I had to be worried, it would be the colts. But ben has a habit of lighting up the colts.

    Didn't know that. I'll double down on the Jags in bbh's game, they seem to have success against the Steelers imo.

    I wonder what people would have said if this thread was up at start of season?? I'd have probably said Houston.

    Obviously, toughest challenge is the Ravens. We take no comfort in beating them in Baltimore, we still have to snap the ball at home. This is a rivalry game, but one that you want to be in.

    Should KC stay with 1 loss, the 1 seed and a bye will not be locked up. Meaning no letting up, keeping the foot on the gas if you will.

    Furthermore, should they make it through November, losses will increasing be harder to come by as Tomlin unleashes hell in December and things of that nature.
