It was a Pittsburgh Steeler day in the AFC North. The Steelers traveled to Cincinnati and beat a winning team while the Ravens found a way to lose to a terrible Seahawks team in Seattle. Toss in another Cleveland loss for good measure.
Yes, you heard me. They’re 6-2 and looking every bit like a playoff-caliber team. Could they win the division? They control their own destiny with four games remaining against rivals Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
Andy “The Ginger QB” Dalton looks like a worthy second round pick this last draft. As does his favorite target, A.J. Green, their first round pick in ’10. Green is pulling down 5 receptions per game for an average of 15 yards.
When they fell behind 16-6 late in the 3rd quarter, I held little hope for a Steeler victory. The offense looked inept and the defense could not get off the field on 3rd down, no matter how great the distance.
