I recently wrote an article on the top three reasons that led to the Steelers missing the playoffs in 2018. Pittsburgh shot themselves in the foot down the stretch and ended up falling less than a game out of first place behind the Baltimore Ravens.
Teams have changed a lot in just one offseason, and it still remains to be seen if the Steelers will be better or worse in 2019. Here are my ‘too early’ playoff predictions for each team in the AFC this year:
1. New England Patriots
This isn’t a very bold prediction here, but I have the Patriots retaining the number one seed in the AFC.
