Two weeks remaining and all but 2 playoff seeds set in the AFC, the Steelers have multiple ways to get themselves in the playoffs as the 6th seed:

1. Easiest route - win out. With the remaining two games on the road, it may seem daunting but those opponents are the Jets (5-9), and the ratbirds (12-2). The Jets will be looking to bring misery to the Steelers playoff hopes this weekend. Should the Steelers win Sunday, they'll most likely be facing the ratbirds 2nd string team.

2. Loses from multiple teams.
The Titans are the team which pose the biggest threat and their remaining schedule are the Saints (11-3) who are still in the contention for a playoff BYE and the Texans (9-5) who are fighting for their own playoff security.
The Raiders who, like the Steelers, play their last two games on the road at the Chargers and at the Broncos. Both those teams would probably love to send Raiders Nation reeling in to the off-season. I'm betting They lose at least one, if not both of these games.
The Browns who end the season with the ratbirds and at Cincinnati. I'm certain the Steelers own the tie breaker over them, should it come down to that, but I'm thinking Baltimore secures their first round BYE this week and pay retribution for their earlier loss.

Week 16 Scenarios:
Steelers beat the Jets, 9-6, can't clinch
Titans lose to Saints, 8-7
Raiders lose to Chargers, 6-9, eliminated
Browns lose to ratbirds, 6-9, eliminated

It's rarely easy with this team. Why should 2019 be any different!?

I'm pretty sure the Browns are out. We can beat the Jets and the Ravens will probably be playing 2nd stringers in the last game so we might can beat them.(as we say in Kentucky) If we manage to win both we're in. Other than this scenario I don't know all of the possibilities. I'll say this. If we get in I hope we go to N.E. so we can embarrass them cheating bastards.Wouldn't that be great to beat them in their house and knock their sorry asses out. That would make my year.

Shameless plug of one of my favorite things:

Browns can get in if Steelers and Titans lose out. Raiders can get in if Steelers, Titans, and Browns lose out.

I was listening to SNR and they said the Jets are #1 against the run which is exactly what we need to do. Maybe this week the O line gets their shit together. It could happen.

Jets are also terrible against the pass. 28th I believe? I'm not against throwing if Duck is smart about it.

In order for a tie record, Steelers would have to lose out and Browns would have to win out. In that scenario, Browns would have the tie breaker because of more division wins.

I had really been hoping, and actually thinking, Bills might beat cheats this week. But, almost have to pull for cheats to win this weekend so Balt needs this weekend's browns game to clinch 1 seed. Baltimore win vs browns this week makes the Steelers game with them next week meaningless.

Bell likely is trying to prove something to the world this weekend and getting himself up for a big game. After all, he needs revenge on the Steelers since it was their fault he took less money and went to the Jets.

Yeah as want to have the Bills beat the Cheats. But it would take a miracle if the Steelers won the rest of their games and having some other team lose or so to enter in.

Ravens/Browns play at the same time as Bills/Pats*, so the Bills game won't impact the Ravens. Rat birds will play to win this week. If Bills beat Pats*, Ravens will lock up #1 seed before the game with the Steelers.

Go Bills.

Seriously? It's our fault he took less money? He took less money because he is a fool.In his mind he probably thinks it's our fault because guys like him never own their actions. I hope we meet him in the backfield all day long.

I'm with you. I was joking at the way he seems to look at things based on some comments he made in the past. I'm not sure how Pittsburgh 'let him go' when he chose to take less money and go to an inferior team:

Special indeed. Special as in short bus. The Bills (10-5) lost to the Patriots* yesterday. The Texans (10-5) beat the Bucs. Since the Cheats won does this mean the Rats play 1st stringers against us next week? It seems to me they need to win out to get #1 seed.

Rats have head to head tie breaker with cheats...beat them earlier this year. By my figuring, if the Rats win today they clinch #1, they would be 13-2...cheats are 12-3 after yesterdays game. Even if cheats win next week and rats lose, both would be 13-3, but tie breaker going to Baltimore.

We probably should pull for Chiefs to lose this week so Texans have a better shot at #3 seed in their game with Titans next week.

For week 15, we need to pull for the following teams: Bears, Saints, and Ravens. These will give Steelers the best chances going into week 16. If this happens:

  • Ravens lock up #1 and should rest their starters. However, they will be extremely motivated with the chance to severely limit our playoff chances.
  • Houston will be playing for a #3 or #4 seed. Titans will be playing for their playoff lives.
  • If KC wins, Houston won't have much to play for and will probably rest their starters. Like the Ravens, they will still be motivated to knock their rivals out.

these scenarios get long winded at times but read somewhere that, I think it goes like this: Steelers could lose, Titans lose, Raiders lose, Colts win, Steelers are in. Not posting this like I hope we sneak in this way, only that it's amazing how bizarre these scenarios get.

Yeah - we're definitely not a playoff team. Obviously I hope we get in, you always want to be in the playoffs if you can be - but the Titans are probably a better option for that 6th spot at this point. If Hodges had kept playing like he was playing for a few weeks, maybe it would be different, but regardless we're only going so far in our situation.

It looks like Conner out again and Pouncey. Otherwise the team is healthy:

No James Conner for Steelers in must-win Ravens game


PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without their starting running back for a must-win Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

James Conner, who suffered a quad injury in the second quarter of last week's loss to the New York Jets, will miss his sixth game of the season. Conner has played in only three of the Steelers' last nine games as he's dealt with injuries to his shoulder and quad.

He initially injured his shoulder in the final two minutes of the win against Miami on Oct. 28 and didn't play the next two games. He attempted to come back in the Thursday night game against the Cleveland Browns but lasted only a quarter.

He had something special and he pissed it away. We are absolutely better without him and who cares what he thinks. Has been.
