If the Steelers beat the Bengals so easily, why are they still behind the Bengals in DVOA? Blame Tommy Maddox. Also this week: Colts move to the top, Washington and Kansas City climb, Atlanta wins and falls anyway, San Francisco continues its record DVOA pace, and we ask the musical question, "Are we not men?"
