I always fear the Steelers more than most NE fans it seems like. I'm pretty sure you can find threads over the past 3-4 years here where I'm talking about how Pitt is the one AFC playoff team that scares me the most. Perhaps I was ultimately wrong about that...I don't know.
But this year, for once, I don't feel too threatened. So watch this be the year they finally beat us. I mean, they still have a dominating defense. They still have Ben. Their O-Line has actually been solid this year. They have pass-catching threats. The run game is a bit meh, but still. They still have all the pieces, but for one reason or another they haven't been able to get it going. Maybe it is purely injuries, who knows?
But this year they don't terrify me. Too many bad losses (at home even). No super duper impressive win (@ NYG is pretty solid, but they're fickle). They haven't blown too many teams out. It just always has been a struggle.
But I do think they squeak into the 6th spot.
