This Saturday the NFL takes center stage with two big games for three of the participants. The first game is a battle in the AFC North where the top seed in the AFC, Baltimore Ravens, are hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. This game is a slight advantage for the Steelers, as the Ravens have nothing to play for while the Steelers have it all in. front of them.
The Steelers have to win in Week 18. They can still make the playoffs if they lose, but the odds are highly stacked against them. The Colts and Texans would have to not tie. The Jaguars would have to lose to the Tennessee Titans and the Denver Broncos have to beat the Las Vegas Raiders.
So it is not impossible, but it is improbable. For them to move into the playoffs, they would need one of three things to happen, a Colts and Texans tie, a Bills loss to the Dolphins, or a Jaguars loss or tie. That is a much easier road for the Steelers.
The Ravens are probably going to rest most of their key players this week, but they are one of the deeper teams in the NFL. I think that they can still get this game from the Steelers. The Ravens are a petty bunch. Keeping them out of the Playoffs would be huge…
The primetime game is a play-in game for the Colts and the Texans. They both could be the #4 seed in the Playoffs at this time or the 6th seed if the Jaguars win. Last year this game in this spot cost the Texans the #1 pick in the NFL draft, which they are probably happy about now considering they got CJ Stroud. A key to this game is going to be the pass rush of the Colts. When Stroud is pressured, he is not the same guy.
If the Colts can get after Stroud, they will win this game. For the Texans, they will need to turn the Colts over. If they intercept Minshew or get the ball on the ground the Colts are a much worse ball club, as any NFL team is, but Minshew gets rattled once the first interception happens. The home field advantage is going to be massive for this one… Give me the Horse
