The Pittsburgh Steelers put themselves in a tough situation after losing to the New York Jets in Week 16. Pittsburgh will need to defeat the Baltimore Ravens and hope the Tennessee Titans fall to the Houston Texans to have a shot at making the playoffs.

The Steelers won't be completely out of it if they lose to the Ravens, but a loss would make things a lot more complicated.

Steelers Odds to Make the Playoffs

Pittsburgh has a 29.3 percent chance of making the postseason, according to Football Outsiders.

The Steelers are also currently available at +200 to make the playoffs on Fanduel Sportsbook. They are listed at -270 to miss the playoffs entirely, +5000 to win the AFC, and +10000 to win the Super Bowl.

In Week 17, the Steelers are 1.5-point favorites over the Ravens. Baltimore will be resting Lamar Jackson and most of its top-tier starters, which should give Pittsburgh an edge.

Pittsburgh is a little banged up, though. Devlin Hodges will be starting for the Steelers, and James Conner has officially been ruled out. Fortunately, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Jaylen Samuels are both expected to be active.

In the other important game for the Steelers, the Titans are 3.5-point favorites over the Texans.

The Steelers need help to make the playoffs, but they aren't done quite yet.
