Strength in the AFC Is Beginning to Rise
Finally, the AFC is no longer a two-team race. Over the past few seasons, the Steelers and Patriots have been the teams to beat, with the Jaguars making a major case for themselves last season.
Looking at the conference this season, there are quite a few teams stepping up and showing major improvement. Among those teams are the Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, and even the Cincinnati Bengals. That’s right, the Steelers may not even be the best team in the AFC North anymore with the Bengals looking strong on both sides of the football.
Tomlin still has plenty of talent to work with. He has a strong offense and a defense that has potential. If the Steelers can put everything together, they should be able to get back on track.
That being said, getting everything back together is going to be easier said than done with all of the things happening both on and off the field in Pittsburgh.
