Playoffs?? You want to talk about playoffs?? Playoffs??
Yes I do.
It is no secret that the Steelers have been probably the most up and down team in the NFL this season but after all of the headaches caused so far in 2014, they have postseason play right in their cross hairs.
I know it only seems like yesterday that we were about to kick-off the season but here we are, the Steelers only have three remaining games, two of which are at home.
They travel to the Georgia Dome this week to take on the Atlanta Falcons, and after that they have back-to-back home games against the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bengals game could be a playoff game in itself because it could determine which team wins the division and which gets a wild card spot or which team gets in the playoffs at all.
Either way, circle Dec. 28 on your calendar – you’re going to want to watch that game.
One thing that the Steelers have going in their favor is that Cincinnati has three very tough games coming up first at the Browns, then home against Denver and then the game in Pittsburgh.
After losing to the Saints two weeks ago, the Steelers playoff hopes looked dim but a blow-out win on the road in Cincinnati was a huge step in getting back into the AFC North division race.
Now all of these scenarios sound great but it will come down to one thing: Can they do it?
