Chris Mack over at ESPN Radio 1250 has posted a very useful statistic. In the history of the franchise, no Steelers team that has started 3-0 has ever failed to make the playoffs.
That makes this weekend’s Bucs’ game even a little more interesting. Obviously the rest of the AFC North isn’t going to just concede the division if Pittsburgh is 3-0, but it clearly would ensure that Pittsburgh is at least tied for the division lead when Ben Roethlisberger returns.
All in all, it’s not a bad place to be after two weeks.
