    Steelers, Bengals, or Jets?

    The Jets are 1 game back, but have a schedule that's favorable. They could get to 9-7 realistically.

    So we need to go 2-1 to keep pace and get the tie breaker. And I think we've got the hardest path of the 3 teams with Dallas and Cincy in the playoff hunt and then Cleveland that's just a tough team for us and probably the team we'll most likely lose.

    Cincy has a middle of the road schedule with Philly, us, and Baltimore. Baltimore won't have anything to play for, so Cincy's probably looking at easy games in Philly and Balt. So we're gonna have to take care of that game and at least one of the others and we should be fine.

    If the Jets and Cincy could lose next week, they'd definitely give us some breathing room.

    Baltimore plays Denver this weekend and the Giants the following weekend both games can be lost. If the Texans should lose tonight that will keep the Broncos in the #1 seed race for another weekend. I don't see too many possibilities for any of these teams to rest players and take it easy. Regardless, the Steelers control their own destiny, win out and you're in the playoffs, they could realistically go 2-1 and still get in as long as they beat Cincinnati, it would be nice for the Jets to fold like a paper bag and drop their next game as well.

    Wouldn't it be neat if Baltimore lost out and Cincy and Pittsburgh ended up in?

    Neat is perhaps an understatement?

    Steelers could even lose in Dallas (although I hope they don't) and we'd still be in the driver's seat to get in the playoffs.. Would have to win against Cincy and Cleve. at home. Win those 2 and we're in.
