Win % explains Division standing Bengals currently .679 Steelers .667
Bengals have played a game less so that % will either go up or down tonight.

As for the Playoff issue well the Steelers can lose their last game (finish 10-6) and still have good enough conference record (currently 8-3) to qualify as WC. Bengals could lose last two games and finish 9-6-1 and lose WC to Ravens or Chargers who could end up 10-6.

For some reason I'm reminded of the opening monologue of 'Soap'
