What's better for us - BAL or NYJ to win this Sunday?
For wild card, we want to stay ahead of Jets, I figure, having won the head-to-head against them.
But how does BAL fit in ... do we _always_ want them to lose, even if that means the Jets win?
We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!
HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
Division first. We want Ravens to lose. #1 Steelers have to try & win Division #2 Steelers have to finish 2nd in Division #3 Wildcard

Both teams aren't that good and are bound to lose more games this year. We just need to take care of our own business!!!

I say Baltimore. If we operate on the premise that we are going to beat them next week, then we'll be knocking them behind us, plus have the tie-breaker. Right now, the Jets are a game up on us and own the 6th spot. All we can do is hope they lose a game and here is the first chance for that.
If the Steelers don't finish 2nd in the Division they are going home. By not hoping for any team in the Division not to lose you are giving the Steelers no margin for error in Wild Card. They need to put as much room as possible between the Ravens & Browns. Worrying about the head to head with the Jets doesn't mean anything if another team has the same record in the AFC unless we beat them too. Right now...It's the Bills. It's Division or #6...And you have no shot being considered for #6 if you don't finish #2.
Here is your thought process taking into account tie breakers. If Ravens & Steelers win...And Ravens beat Steelers...The Ravens are essentially two games up on Steelers & visa versa with 4 to go. Raven lose & Steelers win...And Ravens beat Steelers...Ravens one game up. Ravens lose & Steelers win...Steelers beat Ravens...Steelers 3 games up on Ravens & 2 games up on Browns with 4 to go. Again, have to make this a Two Horse race in the AFCN.

It would be nice to see Flacco and Rice knocked out of the game for a week.

First, we must take care of our business... Beating the Browns is the only game that matters... Now, as long as we do that we can look at the other games this Sunday... I am for the Ravens so the jets will fall to 5-6 and also put Baltimore at 5-6, creating a VERY important game this Thursday. We also want KC to beat SD to drop the Chargers farther back from us. Carolina could also help us out by beating Miami as well. The only other game that is affecting us is the Titans vs Raiders game.... Unfortunately they both have the same records as us and they are playing each other. A tie would be the best case scenario here but more than likely one will be 5-6 with the tie breaker over us after this weekend (assuming we beat CLE). In conclusion.... LETS GO STEELERS!!!

which ever gives us the best chances for the playoffs.
Over the past few years, this is a typical game that the Steelers have had trouble winning. I don't like the Steelers chances in CLE again this year.
