    This team is a product of its weak division. When they played the one really good team (Pittsburgh) they got absolutely destroyed and deconstructed. I dont expeect any wins in the playoff unless we back into the division title and have home field advantage

    I think they can beat any team they would play in the first round. NE and Pitt are clearly the best teams so I dont see them advancing past the second round, but their likely first round opponents would be Baltimore (already beat), Jax (already beat) or KC or SD, who I think they could beat. They could certainly lose those games too by all means, but not sure why you are so pessimistic they can't win any games when they have proven they can beat the caliber of team they will play in the first round.

    And not sure what you mean by backing into the division title. They are in first place and have won 6 of their last 7 games. That isnt backing into anything.

    The writer of this article is right the Titans are a mirage at 8-4 in the fact that the real Titans haven't played yet, the actualized Titans, if so there record would most likely be 11-1 or 12-0. The patriots can't get any better, there defense is atroucious, no team has ever won a Super bowl ranked 30th in the league in total defense and all the while giving up 5.1 yards per carry , QBs had a rating of 98.8 against up until a week ago, they played Buffalo and that rating went down to 88 in one week. The Steelers are who they are, best game they played all year was against us, with 4 give aways by Mariota and perhaps the worst I have ever seen a RB play a game with D Murray, missing blocks that led to sacks, dropping wide open passes and missing every running lane possible. My question is why didn't Pittsburgh win by more, and a little assistance by the refs holding penalty when Steelers got their first score and Steeler played on Titans didn't , placing of the ball after AB fumble right before half that led to 3 free points, Steeler slamming Mathews out of bounds late hit flag, throw in Walker dropped TD, missed field, and Steeler victory isn't near as bad as it looked ) other word Steelers can never get this lucky again and Titans will never look this bad again. If there is a team that has a record that is a Mirage its the Steelers at 10-2. Look at teams that they struggled with Detriot Green Bay ect and look at the scores Baltimore had with those same teams.

    They still have the best QB and coach in the game. NFC team will probably win the ship this year, but I just dont see any of the defenses in the AFC could stop Brady besides well maybe the Jaguars, but I got them eliminated in the first round just because their offense is awful besides Fournette.

    KC provided they make it.
    Pit could have a shoot out with them.
    Jax (as you said) could maybe run on them and pressure Brady.
    Ravens have that weird rivalry thing which may play out today.

    I think they're beatable but still the top AFC team.

    Neither of those defenses maybe the KC could stop Brady. Brady picked apart Pittsburgh defense last year. Jaguars would of had the best shot.. just like the ‘Cows last year, they were the only team to give Brady fits.
