Default Am I looking at this right ? (standings)

If the playoffs were to start tomorrow, the division winners would be:

New England (7-3), Indy (9-1), San Diego (8-2), and Baltimore (8-2). Wilcard teams would be Denver (7-3), and Kansas City (6-4) (depending on the outcome of the jacksonville game of course because they can become 6-4 tonight). So if I'm looking at it correctly, the Steelers are only 2 games out of the wild card race with 6 games to play .... Best case scenario would be for us to be in a tie-breaker situation with Kansas City in my mind. Going back to the beginning of the season though, 2 games out sounds pretty sweet right now lol. The way it looks right now, it could be 8-8 getting in lol .... happened two years ago with seattle and st louis .... hehe

Well 2 games is quite alot when there are only 6 games to do - its ok chasing one team but there a bunch of teams (including the Bengals) who are more than capable of winning 4 of their last 6.

We win all six and we are in. We lose one more and we are looking for draft choices.

We just need to win out first and foremost. This week we have a play-off game against the ravens.

Agreed. If we do win out, we're going to need some help to get into the playoffs, but stranger things have happened. The Steelers need to focus on themselves right now and pay no mind to what everyone else is doing - the chips will fall where they may.

Analysis is pointless. We simply need to win every single game to get ourselves in the best position possible. We need to stay with the mindset that "We're in the playoffs now. Lose, and it's over."

As stated above, Steelers lose tiebreakers to Jax and Denver.

Denver will need to lose every doubtful remaining game to finish 9-7

at Kansas City
Seattle
at San Diego
at Arizona
Cincinnati
San Francisco

Since we presumably want Denver to beat Cincinnati to keep division hope alive, forget beating out Denver

Jax need to lose 3 of its last 7 (which includes tonight)

NY Giants
at Buffalo
at Miami
Indianapolis
at Tennessee
New England
at Kansas City

That actually is possible

Of course in addition to passing Jax, Steelers need to at least catch the Chiefs, Jets and Bengals. Bengals are not a problem since the Steelers play them on New Years Eve.

Chiefs have these 6 games.

Denver
Cleveland
Baltimore
at San Diego
at Oakland
Jacksonville

Trick here is I believe the Steelers need the Chiefs to beat the Ravens

Jets have these 6 games

Houston
at Green Bay
Buffalo
at Minnesota
at Miami Tickets
Oakland

My bet is the Jets and Denver are the wildcards.

However, IMHO 10-6 will make the playoffs; Steelers simply need to win out, which I frankly do not see - 7-9 or 8-8 is far more likely.
