The Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8) took care of business in Green Bay, holding on for a 38-31 win and got a lot of help to remain in the playoff hunt with one game to go.
A New York Jets (7-8) win, and losses by Miami (8-7) and Baltimore (8-7) have the Steelers still in it entering week 17. What needs to break for the Steelers in week 17 for a team that looked dead after an 0-4 start is this:
If the Steelers beat the Browns, Jets beat Dolphins, Bengals beat Ravens, and Chiefs beat Chargers, the Steelers are in.
Despite clinching the AFC North, the Bengals will still have something to play for as a Bengals win and a Patriots loss clinches the No. 2 seed for Cincinnati.
The Chiefs are the one team that has nothing to play for as they are locked in the No. 5 seed.
