Probably true. No way the Steelers drop a home game to the Browns with playoffs on the line if they beat Bengals. Although the idea of the Ravens losing 4 in a row, having clinched a spot, and then walking into Cincy against a surging Bengals team and winning seems improbable as well. Although more likely than the other 2 scenarios. If Ravens beat the G-men, you can book it, they will lay down for Cincy.
