Default Playoff Clinchers?

I know I'm probably gonna get flamed for this, but I might ask anyway. As of now, there is a way the Steelers don't get in the playoffs. But my question is, what has to happen for either:

A: #1 Seed in the AFC
or
B: Division title?

I was thinking:
A: Titans must go at least 3-2 their last 5 games and one of those losses must be Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh must win out. Titans can also lose more than 2 games, just as long as the Steelers match their losses.

B: Ravens can not win out, due to the game against us. They can go 4-1, with the loss going against us, and Pittsburgh can not do worse than 4-1 in the remaining 5 games.

Am I right?

All I know is that the Steelers don't have much room for error. They got NO help last weekend. They're on such a thin line between getting the number 2 seed and missing the playoffs entirely. That matchup in Baltimore in two weeks is huge. A Win there effectively wins the North.

Better root for the Browns and Bengals to win this week over the Colts and Ratbirds.

Every game counts.

they are not on a thin line of missing the playoffs.

if for some godforesaken reason we do not win the division, which is going to happen. The wildcard is on lock. If we continue to play like we have the past two weeks we will get in the playoffs as division leader.

Whistling past the graveyard. We had our "easy games", now the asswhack.

I don't blame people for being tighter than a librarian's sphincter, this next game could be the season.

Unless the Bungles surprise this week. I can see the Ravens finishing 11-5. We're going to have to steal a road game in that case. Beat the Ravens and it's a mute point. Lose and the Colts loss and possible loss to the Pats kills us with the head-to head tiebreaker.

Don't worry; the Ravens will be lucky to go .500 for the rest of the season. All of their victories have come over terrible teams, except for the Eagles and Dolphins, who are merely mediocre.

I can easily see them losing two out of three against Washington, Dallas and Jacksonville -- maybe they'll even lose all three. We ought to have a lot easier time against them now that our quarterback's got his act together and the line seems to be on the same page with him now.
