We get five of our eight division games in the first nine games of the season. ESPN positions this as happy news, since we could clinch the division (theoretically) by game nine.

BUT, the Steelers are known for “easing into” a season. So, just as we could clinch early with a strong start, we could play ourselves into a deeper-than-usual hole, with a more typical 3-2 or even 5-4 start.

I’m not really comfortable about this. But maybe that’s just me.

Did they add a Vegas expansion team to the AFCN?

Yeah. Five of six. Sorry. Point still stands.

Hate the trips to the west coast and then back home for a week and then 1/2 way across the country.

Oh well fuck jet lag. Gotta best the best to be the best.
