The Steelers are 5-0 against teams from the AFC and 0-2 against the NFC East. Here are some staggering numbers from ESPN Stats and Analysis that illustrate the difference:

A win over the Redskins at FedEx Field could do wonders for the Steelers' confidence, but a loss will reinforce the NFC East's dominance over the AFC. After Monday's game, the Steelers' next three opponents have a combined record of 6-17. Even with a loss to the Redskins, they could easily get to 8-3 with home games against the Colts, Chargers and Bengals.
