Where do the Steelers and Ravens stand in the 2022 NFL Playoff Picture ahead of Week 17?

Pittsburgh Steelers:

Kenny Pickett and the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8) are still fighting for a Wild Card spot after last week’s 13-10 victory over the Raiders on Christmas Eve–the team’s fourth win in their last five games. The Steelers enter Week 17 tied on record with the Patriots, Jets, and Titans who all sit just one game behind the No. 7 seed Miami Dolphins. Pittsburgh faces elimination this week with a loss or a Miami Dolphins win. Additionally, head coach Mike Tomlin who has been with the Steelers for 16 years, could earn his first losing season if the Steelers do not win their next two games.

Baltimore Ravens:

The Baltimore Ravens already clinched a playoff berth after last Saturday’s 17-9 win against the Falcons and enter Week 17 just one game behind Cincinnati for the AFC North lead. The Ravens will win the AFC North if they win their next two games–which includes a battle with the Bengals in Week 18. However, Cincinnati can take the division title on Monday with a win against the Bills and a Ravens loss.
