I’ve been a Steelers fan for 30 years, through thick and thin, and I’m a bit chagrined to admit that I wrote them off after they started the season 0-4. I still say they don’t really deserve to make the playoffs, but here we are in week 17 and they have a slim chance… but they had an even slimmer chance last weekend, and everything worked out as it needed to, so ya never know.
BTW, all of the cards that accompany this post are 2013 Bowman cards I bought on a whim during COMC Black Friday festivities.
For the Steelers to earn the 6th seed through a series of tiebreakers which I can’t say I understand…
The Ravens will have to lose to the host Bengals.
The Dolphins have to lose to the Jets in Miami…
…And the Chargers have to lose to the Chiefs in San Diego
If all of those games go the Steelers’ way, then the Steelers, Ravens, Dolphins and Chargers will be tied with an 8-8 record, and the Steelers get in via tiebreakers that, as I said, I don’t fully understand so I won’t even attempt to elaborate… Needless to say, if the Steelers DO make it in, there will be a number of articles about how the tiebreakers shook out.
The Steelers/Browns game isn’t on TV where I live, so I’ll probably spend the afternoon checking in on the games which are on local TV.
