6. Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4)
Just when it seemed only the Baltimore Ravens (11-4) had a key to stopping the Steelers offense -- the Ravens won both meetings -- the San Francisco 49ers (11-4) kept a hobbled Ben Roethlisberger and crew out of the end zone in Week 15, putting them on a tougher path to win the AFC North. Being in a tie with the Ravens, the Steelers need a win against the Cleveland Browns (4-11) in Week 17 and a Ravens loss to clinch the division and a first-round bye. The only other possible playoff team to beat the Steelers was the Houston Texans (10-5) in Week 4.
