Bell, Steelers O-Line status Sunday

12/4/2013

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a good chance at the sixth playoff spot in the AFC. Even though Pittsburgh sits at 5-7, Football Outsiders places their odds at 30.7 percent, the most among non-KC Wild Card hopefuls. Though they are not currently in the driver's seat, they're rated slightly better than the 6-6 Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens, have an easier schedule than those two teams, and have more home games down the stretch. Having laid this out, however, key injuries on offense--including the one to rookie RB Le'Veon Bell--could be costly going into the end of the season.
