What would really suck is the Pats could finish 10-6 and get in above us at 11-5!

No, what will really suck is that the NFC North automatically gets to send a team to the playoffs while the Chargers or Steelers, either of which would beat any team in the NFC North convincingly, will be staying home.

Well Boo Hoo.

Seems to me some Pittsburgh fans have only just discovered how the playoffs work - if you dont win your division you dont qualify automatically - this is NOT a recent development.

I offer my apology to Infamix for my comment directed towards him in a previous post of mine in this thread.

The more I start to think about this possible 3 way tie scenario with Jacksonville, San Diego and the Steelers.......the more I get a bad feeling over the whole thing.
How sickening it would be if the spectre of those "Two Tommy Maddox Losses" came back to rear it's ugly head??

It's bad enough those two games cost the Steelers from winning the division but would even make it more worse if they come back to screw the Steelers out of the playoffs on a conference record tie breaker even though they won their final four games of the season.

I hope I'm getting a little ahead of myself and none of the tie breaker formulas come in to play.

Go Kansas City!!

I thought that we own any tiebreaker with SD because we beat them.

Should San Diego win their final two games and Jacksonville loses one of their final two and the Steelers, Jags and Chargers all finish at 11-5 we lose a tie breaker to San Diego because they have the better conference record which trumps the head to head win that Pittsburgh has over the Bolts.

Just so know - Miami currently stand at 7-7 and their final two games are against a poor Tennessee team and a Patriots team that, in your little fantasy world, was going to finish 8-8 - I quite like Miami's odds of getting to 9-7 and winning the division...dont you?

To save yourself the embarrassment next time.

1. Click on nfl.com

2. Click on 'Standings'

You will find all the answers you are looking for right there.

Thats exactly right.

Because the Chargers havent played the Jags then the head-2-head is not applicable for all 3 teams so they go to the Conference record.

I'm going "Glass half full" on this one, we win out, Chargers get beat by the Bronco's, and the Steelers ride a 4 game win streak into the playoffs and beat Cincinnati in the Wild Card game.
