They are not the 1985 Bears. I will point out, however, that the Steelers were the consensus FO pick for AFC North champion in the preseason.
The New England Patriots climb to No. 1 in DVOA, but they aren't a great team, because this is The Year of No Great Teams. In fact, no No. 1 team in any week of DVOA has ever been rated lower. (Note: Table errors fixed as of Wed. morning.)
