Steelers Can Clinch Playoff Berth With Win, Division Title With Help on Monday



The Pittsburgh Steelers can clinch a playoff spot and possibly the AFC North title this Monday against Washington.

The 11-0 Steelers will clinch at least a playoff berth with a win or tie or a Las Vegas Raiders, Miami Dolphins or Indianapolis Colts loss or tie.

All of those games will take place on Sunday, as Las Vegas plays at the New York Jets, Miami will host the Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis visits the Houston Texans.

The Steelers can clinch an AFC North title with a win, a Cleveland Browns loss and by clinching the strength of victory tiebreaker over the Browns. The Steelers currently have a .412 strength of victory, while the Browns have a .306 strength of victory, which is the combine winning percentage of all the teams a team has beaten. The Browns play at the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

The Steelers have missed the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the second time this century. They have not missed the playoffs for three consecutive seasons since 1998-2000 under Bill Cowher.

The Steelers last won the AFC North in 2018. Since the division was formed in 2002, the Steelers have won it eight times, the Baltimore Ravens have won it six times and the Cincinnati Bengals four times.
