He had 2 TDs in the 1st 3 minutes of the game, I think! Giants are killing the Saints even though Eli has thrown a couple of picks, Saints can't keep up. Giants will beat the Falcons, I think.

Suddenly the Giants schedule doesn't seem so tough. The Falcons and Ravens are broken and then they have the Eagles.

Damm I know that the Seahawks are good at home but 51-0??

Not a Pats Fan but that was so long ago that it's not even a issue. You know how many teams had a winning record in sept who won't be in the playoffs? A lot of them

Season is over
That's a rather bold proclamation considering a) the Steelers would still be in the playoffs if the season ended today, and b) all they have to do to make the playoffs is beat the Bengals and one more team. If they do that, then literally nothing else matters in the AFC. You can even fiddle around with ESPN's playoff scenario generator if you need proof. Do the following in this exact order:


1. Observe the current #6 seed in the AFC.
2. Select the Steelers to beat the Bengals in Week 16.
3. Select the Bengals to beat the Eagles in Week 15 and the Ravens in Week 17.
4. Select the Jets to beat all three of their remaining opponents.
5. Select the Steelers to beat the Cowboys in Week 15 and lose to the Browns in Week 17. Observe the #6 seed in the AFC.
6. Select the Steelers to lose to the Cowboys in Week 15 and beat the Browns in Week 17. Observe the #6 seed in the AFC.


The Dolphins, Browns, Chargers and Bills each have eight losses, so they don't matter unless the Jets lose at least one and the Steelers and Bengals both lose at least two. They're all but mathematically eliminated.

It ain't over until it's over. I'm sure you probably said the Giants weren't playoff material last December 18, when they lost at home to a Redskins team that entered the game with a 4-9 record. Of course, that loss didn't prevent the Giants from winning six consecutive games in seven weeks, and earning a shiny trophy and a box of rings for their efforts.

I;m going by what my eyes are telling me and what I saw today from the steelers was uinacceptable. They had a 4-8 team who is falling apart come in and score 34 points which to me was the shock of the NFL weekend. So how could anyone expect the Steelers to win the next 2 games on the road when they couldn't beat a bad chargers team at home. And yes if the season ended today they would be in but the season ends on dec 30th and they have 2 road games coming up which are huge games.

Had they won today they would have had a throw away game but not now because if they lose to Dallas they will be 7-7 instead of 8-6 with a matchup coming with the Bengals
