According to ESPN

2. Pittsburgh Steelers
2012 playoff odds: 86.0 percent
Random schedule odds: 77.1 percent
Difference: +8.9 percent
Like the Cowboys, the Steelers also benefit from a division rival's tough schedule and have five home games the rest of the way. Outside of two against Baltimore and one against Dallas, the Steelers face a cakewalk schedule: Kansas City, Cleveland (twice), San Diego and Cincinnati. While they have a good shot to make the playoffs, their defense will need to revert to its former glory; the Steelers rank No. 23 in terms of opponent-adjusted defensive efficiency.


Defense will have to do better with sacks and turnovers

If they split with the Ravens; it's legitimate for this tema to win 12 this year. They have the talent to go 7-1 the rest of the year. There are some dogs on the sched - KC, San Diego, Browns (twice), Cowgirls, Bengals

We owe the Ravens a "sweep" and I'll be disappointed if we don't. I want to see us go out and win all 6 AFC North games. I would love 12 wins, but see 11 wins as most likely scenario.

For the love of everything holy-just get into the playoffs.

I care not what the record is.

I just want this team to have a shot this year.

Last year we hobbled in.

Not this year!

OMG no! Steelers don't do well against "easy" schedules. I don't want this year to end up like 2009!! Hello!

Our remaining schedule stacks up well for us, the competition is low (by W-L standards), and most of the games are going to be on our own turf. On the flipside, the rat turds have a much more difficult schedule remaining, with Denver, the Giants, us (twice), @ Cinci, plus @ SD and Washington, I think they'll be lucky to win half of those games the way they are squeaking by right now. We could be in a position to not only win the division, but to also host a playoff game as well. We'll see, but first we need to have NO let down vs. the Chiefs!
