1.  Denver loses.  At worst, we're in a tie right now with them and hold the tiebreaker for a playoff spot.

2.  Dallas loses.  This has no direct impact, other than we get to hear about something on sports news other than the Steelers losing and the "For Real" Bengals.

3.  New England loses.  See #2, and add in that it's nice to know that ours is not the only coaching staff that makes idiotic decisions.

Well, that's about it. 

Things that didn't go our way:

1.  Jax wins.  One game back of WC.

2.  SD wins.  Tied w/us, but we fortunately have tiebreaker for now.

3.  Colts win, no chance to catch them anyway so maybe it really doesn't matter.

4.  Jets lose.  Fail to add any pressure to NE.

5.  NE loses, but still play in a division that blows so they'll finish ahead of us no matter what.

6.  Looking at the schedule, it appears the Ravens play the Browns tonight.  5-4, one game back.  Great.

7.  Bengals essentially locked up the division by week 9.

Not quite, but they're definitely in great shape.  I see at least two more losses for them - San Diego and Minnesota in consecutive road games.  If they don't crap the bed in any other games - which is likely as their heads get bigger with each win - that puts them at 12-4.  Which means we'd have to run the table to win the division.  Looking at our schedule, that's actually doable if we can beat Balty twice. Our toughest remaining game otherwise is at home (Green Bay), and the rest of the teams are 4-5 or worse.

Odds are long, agreed.  But we should at least get wild card if we play decent.  Not terribly excited about chances against Indy/NE at the moment, but plenty of season left.

What a match-up.  The Bellichimp, and his creativity, game planning against BA and his not so talented mind.  No matter how well the Steelers are playing, that is a slaughter unless BA is not the game planning or calling plays.  Ben would have less time and complete fewer passes for fewer yards than he did Sunday against the Bengals.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.
