Hope I am wrong and yes we got close to three very good teams but how much of the comebacks were because of prevent defenses ?
I had thought it was diminished when we played them load of injuries.. IIRC they were down to 5 OL guys only two of which were starters by games end..

was missing several other starters on defense as well..



Steelers O-linemen Marcus Gilbert (knee) and Ramon Foster (eye). ... Steelers star LB James Harrison (knee) sat out, as did S Ryan Clark, who has sickle cell trait that makes playing at altitude dangerous.

But back then everyone was on a high and did not want to listen..

manning was the man..

we were going to go 16-0
