Pittsburgh Steelers chances of making the playoffs are very realistic

Who would have thought that the Pittsburgh Steelers are still alive for the playoffs entering the final week of the season. The same team that started 0-4. The same team that appeared in need of a franchise-wide overhaul after a 55-31 pounding in New England that dropped the Steelers to 2-6 in late-October. The same team that let Miami score 34 points in the snow two weeks ago.

“Isn’t that crazy?” defensive end Brett Keisel said. “We still are breathing and we’re going to continue to fight. We’ve got one more that we’ve got to win to even have a shot and that will be our focus.”

The Steelers (7-8) need to beat the fading Browns (4-11) Sunday and hope Miami, Baltimore and San Diego – all 8-7 – lose. It would create a five-way tie for the final wild card spot that would somehow end with Pittsburgh traveling to Cincinnati to face the AFC North champs for the third time this season.

This week the Dolphins face the New York Jets, who have a coach on the hot-seat in Rex Ryan.  The Jets are going to want to win this week, against their division foe.  The Baltimore Ravens play the Cincinnati Bengals who head coach Marvin Lewis already said will be starting their key players, and the San Diego Chargers will be facing the 11-4 Kansas City Chiefs. If this somehow falls in place for the Steelers, that would be a sweet turnaround.  Especially when you think that in week 4, the head coach had to remove the pool tables and games in the locker room to keep the team focused.  It seemed to have work.
