Default What must happen for the Steelers to get into the playoffs-

I know a miracle has to happen for the Steelers to get into the playoffs, but don't give up on them just yet-look at last year. I saw this on Channel 4 News yesterday after the results of all the games.
In order for the Steelers to go to the playoffs:
-Steelers must win out
-Bengals, Jaguars and Jets must lose out
-Chiefs must lose net game, but beat Jacksonville
-Titans and Bills must lose at least one game

I don't think the Jets have to lose out, but I'm not exactly sure. I know they definitely have to lose one.

Yeah I don't think they have to lose out either, but I got this from the news and they aren't always right. Last sunday they said 3 wildcard teams made the playoffs and I was like you idiots!!

Default Re: What must happen for the Steelers to get into the playoffs-

If I understand it right here's what we need ...


1) Win out (obvious)

2) The Jets to lose to Miami or Oakland (this gives us a tie-break win over the Jets, I believe on opponent winning % - we would have equal records and the same conference record, but our opponent winning % is stronger)

3) Buffalo to lose one of its remaining two games (they have a better conference record than us - fortunately one of those games is against Baltimore who is STILL motivated; the other game they have is against Tennesee who is apparently very tough - I believe we also beat Tennesee on opp. winning %)

4) Two of the following three teams to finish 8-8 (Denver, Cincinnati, Jacksonville). If Cincy loses tonight then we are left with three options of teams finishing 8-8, instead of two options of teams finishing 8-8. Because Cincy plays Denver next week, a Cincy loss tonight means that we would be able to tolerate a Cincy win OR a Cincy loss next week. Whereas if Cincy wins tonight, we could tolerate ONLY a Cincy win next week.

Basically, if Jacksonville wins one of two, we're pretty much out since then we need Cincy to lose tonight and Denver/Cincy would have to tie which is very unlikely.

GOTTA KEEP THE FAITH!

The Jets are 8-6 and I am pretty sure they hold the Conference tie-break with us right now. So yes, they need to lose their last two.
