We will be tied all the way down to conference record, which we got smoked on. It is impossible to win the division. Only Cincy can win it if they win out.

Three or More Clubs

(Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated during any step, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of the two-club format).

Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games among the clubs).
Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
Strength of victory.
Strength of schedule.
Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
Best net points in common games.
Best net points in all games.
Best net touchdowns in all games.
Coin toss

It's actually the first tie-breaker we win in a 3 way tie. The head to head would be our record vs. the Ravens and Bengals. In this scenario we would be 3-1, with a split with the Ravens and a sweep of the Bengals. The Ravens are 2-2 with 2 splits and the Bengals are 1-3.
We take the North in this scenario.

We need a win and a Giants win this upcoming week and then things get fun. If that happens, depending on wk 17 outcomes, we could be:
1. out of the playoffs if the Bengals win and we lose.
2. a Wilcard #6 seed if we win and the Bengals lose or if we lose and the Bengals lose, and the Dolphins lose one of their last 2 games.
3. a AFC N champ and #4 seed if we win and the Ravens lose.
4. there is a way we could end up being the #5 seed if the Colts drop both, the Ravens split, and we win both.

If neither get up, it's considered a draw, and Creed will retain the title automatically.

Exactly right. Just spent 10 minutes playing with the Playoff Scenario Generator on Yahoo. We could host the Colts (best case), or a whole lot of other scenarios. One thing is certain. We must win this week. People are quick to point out the games we lost, well the Bungles lost to the sorry ass Steelers this year

and they blew the Dallas game at home also. Cincy isn't exactly rolling. The Browns may be the tougher test. I could see us winning both, losing both, or splitting. Nothing would surprise me.

I hate that we're in this position, but we haven't really been over matched all season until the Chargers game. You could have almost flipped a coin in the others with all of them coming down to the 4th quarter or overtime.

Wrong. 2 Steelers wins + 2 Ravens losses = Steelers division title.

I wouldn't want to win the division.

Bruce Arians will surely out coach Haley.

Prove it and I'll eat my words. Cause at the stats I'm looking at now, I am failing to see that at all.

Ravens- 2-2 against Steelers/Bengals
Bengals 1-3 against Steelers/Ravens
