Steelers and Dolphins Out of Postseason Contention

Bengals 13, Steelers 10. The 7-8 Pittsburgh Steelers and 7-8 Miami Dolphins have been knocked out of postseason contention.

While the Dolphins under first-year head coach Joe Philbin bested their win total of 2011 and have lots of draft picks next season, sitting at home during the postseason is still going to be rough.

For the Steelers and head coach Mike Tomlin, this is the second time in four seasons that they’ve sat out the postseason. There will be a lot of questions in the off-season about the offense, and also a few about the aged players on defense.

Most exciting next weekend will be that the Broncos could still steal the #1 seed from the Texans, so long as they beat the Browns on the road. Having home field in mountain air could be a big deal. If they lose today, QB Peyton Manning will be in danger of losing the #2 seed to QB Tom Brady and the Patriots.
