Steelers: AFC North Power rankings


The final week of the NFL season shakes up the AFC North’s Power Rankings

The final week of the NFL season shakes things up a little bit within the AFC North division. Most Steelers fans, myself included, are probably still extremely sour after the loss to the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday.

For a team that displayed significant promise to go into their rival’s stadium and fizzle out like that is extremely disappointing. After the highs and lows of a very exciting season to get swept by an inferior Baltimore team is beyond upsetting.

The only thing worse than that is to have your playoff fate now decided by the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills. I sure didn’t get what I wanted for Christmas.

Previous: 2nd. Cincinnati Bengals. 1. team. 56. Cincinnati has done what it had to after losing their quarterback. They beat San Francisco at home and went to overtime on Monday night at Mile High stadium in Denver. They are the best team in the AFC North and have won the 2015 crown. What Steelers fans can be happy about is that the Bengals have to beat Baltimore this week and the Broncos have to lose to the Chargers in order for the team to have the playoff bye necessary to give <strong><a href=. (11-4)

This team is difficult to figure out. It is nothing new that the Steelers play down to their opponents and at the same time can go toe to toe with the best teams in the leagues but they do not appear to be there yet as they simply cannot lose the game they did last weekend. Should the football gods smile down upon them this weekend allowing the favored Jets to lose to the Bills then could this team could probably make some noise in the playoffs?  Absolutely but we better start praying.. (9-6). Previous: 1st. Pittsburgh Steelers. 2. team. 55

team. 26. The upset win leading to a season sweep of the Steelers must have been fun for fans who endured a disappointing season. Ryan Mallet played quite a game for them. With the win he probably cemented his spot as <strong><a href=. (5-10). Previous: 4th. Baltimore Ravens. 3

Cleveland Browns. 4. team. 53. The Browns kept it quite close with the Chiefs. They even had a final drive looking for a score but ran out of time. This team has had a lot of adversity to deal with and it may help them in 2016 but they are still rebuilding.. (3-12). Previous: 3rd
