Two games into the 2013 season and for eight teams the playoffs are already a distant memory, at least according to recent history. Since 1990, less than 12 percent of teams to start 0-2 made the playoffs. And no team has done it since 2010. Which obviously means curtains for the Steelers, whose offense couldn't have looked more impotent in Monday night's loss to the Bengals
The last four times Pittsburgh was 0-2 out of the gate (most recently 2002), they found themselves in the postseason. But this offense might be one of the worst in the league, and if the Steelers are going to turn things around, they have to find ways to get in the end zone.
The Bengals, meanwhile, eked out a home win in an up-for-grabs division. But they hardly looked like the crown jewel of the AFC, and we're still not convinced they're the best team in the AFC North.
But aren't the Texans the AFC South's version of Cincinnati? The only difference being that they won both games they should have lost? We talk about that too, before taking a spin around the rest of the league.
