The Pittsburgh Steelers are like a guy who eats at Primanti Bros. every day but doesn’t gain weight.
Despite losing four of their last five games, including Sunday’s 27-24 overtime defeat in Dallas, the Steelers (7-7) still will be in excellent shape for a playoff berth if they beat the Bengals and Browns in their final two games.
With those last two games at home, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for Steelers players to get a head start cleaning out their lockers. If their 2012 season doesn’t end after they play the Browns Dec. 30, it will end in early January.
Usually during this time of year, the Steelers are jockeying for a first-round playoff bye. The most recent exception is 2009, when they missed the playoffs after falling apart at midseason.
Not since 2007 have the Steelers looked like this. That year, Willie Parker went down with an injury and the Steelers lost three of their last four before falling to the Jaguars in the first round of the playoffs.
