Playoff Picture Gets More Interesting for Steelers

The Steelers loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars did not help nor hurt their playoff prospects.  The loss dropped the Steelers record to 9-and-5.  The Steelers loss coupled with the Cleveland Browns 8-0 shutout of the Buffalo Bills leaves both clubs tied atop the AFC North with a 9-and-5 record.  The Steelers win the tie-breakers however because they have beaten the Browns twice and have a better divisional record.  The Steelers need to win out or at least match the Browns down the stretch to win the division.  The division winner automatically makes it to the playoffs.  The runner-up would probably be a game behind Jacksonville for the first Wild Card spot. 

The Jags are second to Indianapolis in the AFC South but the Jags are atop the Wild Card standings with a 10-4 record.  Cleveland currently sits behind Jacksonville in the Wild Card standings with Tennessee behind the Browns with a 7-and-7 record.  If Cleveland were to win out and the Steelers lose one, the Browns would win the division and the Steelers would drop into the Wild Card race.
