Pittsburgh is an above average team and they've played arguably an easier schedule than the Bengals. But I just laugh when people say "we can play with the elite" and then I see what the Rams did to the Saints.
Parity is the rule in this league.
A undefeated team heading into Week 11 that could challenge the '72 Dolphins record sounds awfully elite to me.
And upsets are part of the game.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
