Steelers pretty much CRUSHED the bye week tho....
Ravens Bengals Chiefs all fall another notch behind...

This week .....go broncos....geaux saints



Absolutely did....2.5 game lead in the Division with a win over both Ravens & Bungals. ONLY remaining question should be whether Steelers land a Bye, and hopefully #1 seed.

Normally I'd agree, but the Bungs, and the Rats both lost, so we advanced without having to play a game.

Well...the Steelers were up essentially 2.5 prior to today as 2 game lead+tiebreaker = 2.5....sooo...

If you calculate losses rather than total games its 2 vs 5 PLUS the tiebreaker advantage.....

Im hoping the remaining Bengals and Ravens games can be rendered meaningless in afc north terms AND conference seeding however

Would really be great to see the cheats catch a few Ls coming up.....Chiefs and Bills too

For sure on Chefs, but I'd like to see the Bills winning....keep them in position to perhaps win the East over Patriots.

Count me as another who can’t stand the bye week. Even when things fall according to SBI as it did today, the bye week is still lame! I know the players hate the Thursday night games; any consensus on how they feel about the bye week?

I'm thinking they like it. A week off? Why wouldn't they like that?

I love the bye. First as it stands now we can heal up our minor injuries. But more importantly we need for the coaches to fix our sluggish offense. We're not ready for the top teams in the NFL. We are underperforming.

So we gain on the division. Heal our wounded and get to reset the O. If we don't perform to our talent level there will be another wasted season staring right at us.

Bye Bye Super Bowl Championship #7!

There’s no “2.5”.

As with baseball, look at the difference in the loss column.

Steelers are three up in the loss column, with a slight leg up in division and conference tiebreakers.

Take care of division business over the last eight weeks, and we should be good to go.

Incorrect as usual Jeemie.....

Its 3.5 due to this 5 losses - 2 losses = 3 game advantage + tiebreaker = 3.5

Tiebreaker means very little when only one division game each has been played.

That can be neutralized in a hurry.

That’s why I mentioned it as a “slight edge” in my summary.

So...as usual, YOU are inattentive to what I wrote.
