Steelers the least threat?
At their best, the Steelers should be good enough to beat the Pats. They but us last season and they have post season experience. Woodley has had a crappy season, but like Tuck, he could turn it on for the playoffs.
Wallace, Brown, Sanders and Miller are all viable receiving threats, Arrington will have to cover one of them.
Cin has AJ Green and Gresham...and a shaky QB. Steelers are more dangerous than the Bengals.
2010 Jets beat the Pats, 2010 Seahawks beat the Saints, 9-7 New York Giants who gave up more points than they scored won the Super Bowl.
This Pats team lost to the Arizona Cardinals earlier in the season. Steelers or Bengals catch fire these last two games, then anything can't happen.
Don't discount anything in the playoffs
I just don't see it. I do not fear the Steelers. Ben is stong and can move around but he is slow as hell, our pass rush, as of right now, can get to him. Sure they have some outside threats but Ben has to be able to get it to them. This Pats team is better then previous Pats teams and this Steelers team is worse then previous Steelers teams.
Concerning the Arizona game, that was early in the season. Both teams are totally different now then they were when they played!
Part of my point.
These teams can be different two weeks from now. Steelers have a higher ceiling than the Bengals IMO
