Last week: 7 (-3) Record: 6-3 Ben Roethlisberger’s injury hurts, but the sky isn’t falling. In Roethlisberger’s career, they are 8-5 when he doesn’t play, starting with his first start week 3 of 2004. They have a 2 game lead over the rest of the AFC for a playoff spot. 9-7 should get you a playoff spot in the AFC and the Steelers just have to go 3-4 to do that against a schedule that isn’t very hard. This really hurts their chances of taking the division (which was up for the taking with 2 games in 3 weeks against an overrated division leading Baltimore squad), but they should still be able to make the playoffs and if they can get everyone healthy for the playoffs (including Troy Polamalu), they’ll still be dangerous.
