Morning take: Steelers playoff scenarios

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North: Morning take: The team has no business thinking about the postseason with the Baltimore Ravens (8-6) coming to town. But I'm sure projections are fun for Steeler Nation.
Morning take: With the secondary ailing, many in Baltimore are clamoring for the team to sign another former Raven in Chris McAlister. Would Ravens fans settle for Ivy instead?
Morning take: This has been a really tough week for Cincinnati, and today's trip to the New Orleans area is another chapter in that journey.
Morning take: I also expect this to be at the top of Holmgren's list. Look for him to spend a lot of time with the coaching staff in the next two weeks to do his own evaluations.
