What It Does
The Steelers are in the playoffs, but they could slot in anywhere from first through sixth at this point. There is nothing decided in the seeding. Two victories would assure them of no worse than the fifth seed.
Why It's a Break
This won't be easy. The Steelers will likely be playing two games without their starting quarterback, instead opting for the ancient Charlie Batch. They also have an injured running back and a banged up defense.
They have two opponents who certainly may not seem tough, but the Steelers tend to make games against opponents with worse records very close and very difficult on themselves.
They'll be lucky to win both games at this point and one has to question how hard the team will fight now that winning the AFC North is much more unlikely.
