But Who's Number Two?

With the Titans and Giants taking up the top spots in their respective conferences, which teams are the second best in the AFC and NFC?

Don't underestimate Pittsburgh. They're one bad snap away from being 8-2 (which would have given the mighty Giants an 8-2 record as well). And that's despite the absence of Willie Parker and their number one rookie running back for most of the season. Look for the return of Parker to take some of the heat off of Big Ben. If they can end 10-6 after playing the toughest schedule in the league, I'll call that a major acheivement.

Personally, I'm not sold on the Titans-- yet. They aren't blowing teams out despite playing a relatively weak schedule. Luckily, December 21st will give us a chance to see how they match up against the number two team in the AFC-- Pittsburgh.

Last years' Cowboys, maybe; this year's Cowboys....sure....

The world is falling down around us and there are still people who GAS about sports? I have one word for you FO.

Don :

Not sure but hope the Packers come back. Or the Jets with Brett!

hands :

Pittsburgh yes! Number two team in the league! With a healthy Willie Parker and one the stingiest defenses in the league. This team is without a doubt number two!

DanO :

Pittsburgh appears to be a dominant team, especially on defense, so that would be AFC's #2 team.

In the NFC, Carolina has the edge in terms of record and winning streak, but something seems flawed in this team. Surprising pick? How about Atlanta? It is a better team than its record shows.

TomfromNJ1 :

Even playing with their best runner, defensive backs, and star quarterback injured, the Steelers have done what it takes. The defense tops both conferences in total, passing, and running and even accounted for 2 points in a one point victory. Their backup QB came in to win a game. If they are healthy for the playoffs when defense REALLY counts, I suspect they might add a sixth SUper Bowl.
