also, i believe buffalo could win out and overtake our spot since they would have a better conference record. of course they could lose tie breakers to other teams so....
Welcome. Did you follow a link to this website?

Also, correct me if I am wrong, but if Denver and KC end up tied, KC makes the playoffs because of a better division record. So, if Pit, KC, and Den end up at 9-7---Pit goes because KC eleminates Den and Pit beat KC head to head.

3 way ties are worked out differently.

One team has to have a winning advantage over both other teams - it doesnt work like an eliminator where KC knock out DEnver and then Pittsburgh gets the winner.

Borski...

Good chart... Though you gotta figure out a scenario that doesn't require the Jets losing to OAKLAND!!

sorry mate, you're wrong on this one. here are the first two steps of the rules for clarification.

Three or More Clubs
(Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of applicable two-club format.)
1. Apply division tie breaker to eliminate all but the highest ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2. The original seeding within a division upon application of the division tie breaker remains the same for all subsequent applications of the procedure that are necessary to identify the two Wild-Card participants.
2. Head-to-head sweep. (Applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)

Can someone explain to me how a three way tie would work (Pitt, KC & Jets) I tried reading the tiebreakers on three way ties but didn't understand it. until i know how that would work out the Jets will have to lose to Oakland, however unlikely

If Jets win out (10-6) and Denver beats Cincy, but lose to SF (9-7) and KC wins out (9-7) then a three way tie between KC, Den, Pit. Pitt then goes to playoffs.
