3 remaining games that could decide the Steelers season
1. Steelers @ Bengals – Nov. 28
In Week 3 the Cincinnati Bengals delivered the Steelers an embarrassing 24-10 loss. Since that point, the Bengals have emerged as one of the best teams in the AFC, standing at a current 5-4.
While Cincinnati’s record puts them among the top, many still debate whether they are contenders or pretenders. After blowing out the Ravens, the Bengals were upset by the Jets and embarrassed by the Browns, leaving intrigue on what the future of their season will look like.
In Week 12, they will play their second game against Pittsburgh, this time in Cincinnati. With the questions of whether the Bengals are real or not, Pittsburgh can make a statement and remind them that they are still the little brothers of the division.
Division games are always tough, add in the fact that Cincinnati is young and seemingly in between stages, the Steelers have an opportunity to beat them regardless of what their records are at the time.
Things will be extremely tough for Pittsburgh in their remaining games, but this is a franchise that has always beat the odds. Anything can happen in the NFL, and the Steelers may end up winning more than anyone predicts. If they hope to make the playoffs, they will need to.
