That might explain why they all looked fat, lazy, and whiny.
Not true. If the Steelers win out and the Ravens lose out, the Steelers win the division.
In this case, where all three would be 9-7, the Steelers would beat out Cincinnati in the head-to-head tie breaker, 2-0. The Ravens/Steelers, and Ravens/Bengals would be 1-1 against each other. Moving to the second tie breaker, record among the three teams, Steelers would be 3-1, Ravens 2-2, Bengals 1-3.
The Sun is wrong (or was wrong). But the CBS crew also announced this during the game as well when talking about Pittsburgh losing. It's just poor research and reporting by all. You don't even have to look at tie-breakers here. It's simple math. The Bengals are one behind and there are 2 games left for each team. We lose two and they win 2 mean they win the division.
