Peaked early and coming back crashing with Ben looking trash. They will be fine due to their defense but if Ben fell off a cliff they aren't going anywhere
I question if the Steelers will win a playoff game. Look at the teams that they'll potentially face in Wild Card weekend - Tennessee, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Miami, and Baltimore - and find where there's a guaranteed win. Each of those five teams would give Pittsburgh a run for their money, if not outright beat them.
Which leads me to my larger point - even when they were 11-0, there was no more overrated, overhyped team in the NFL than the Steelers. Of their 11 victories, six were by one score and eight were by 10 or less. And they weren't beating the league's best, they were feasting on the NFC East and lesser teams like the Broncos, Texans, Jaguars, and a Ravens team that was without most of its starters.
After tonight, with their remaining two games against the Colts and Browns, the Steelers could very easily start the season 11-0 and finish 11-5.
The Steelers at 11-0 gave me the same vibes that last years 8-0 Patriots team did. Feels like they're marching towards the same inevitable fate come January
