    I did playoff machine and if us and Baltimore both go 9-7, Baltimore gets in. I actually messed around a lot and no matter what, as long as Baltimore and us are tied, we still lose out. Doesn't matter who is with us either, mine had us SD and Balt. So we all know we will not beat Denver, and if we lose this week then we are done no matter what. Just something to think about though down the road. Baltimore has a few tough games ahead (Lions, NE, Cincy) but cincy may have it wrapped up by then.

    Why did we have tiebreakers on them last week then? We were both 5-6 and we held the 6th seed.

    Isn't the second tiebreaker division record? Or is it conference record? I can't believe we hold any kind of tiebreakers on some of those teams considering we are 0-3 in the division.

    But like I said... it would be Steelers or Ravens in the 6th seed (and the winner of last night's game would get it). So the Ravens almost have this thing locked down. Chargers could have a shot too. Maybe the Dolphins would too since they get to play the Jets twice.

    FYI if Cincy has a chance to knock the Ravens out they will take it. Bengals will likely have the #3 seed and would play the #6 seed. You really think they'd rather play the Ravens than a team like us?

    Also they had their season finale against the Jets a few years ago. They could've knocked them out of the playoffs. Instead they decided to rest their players. And guess what? The Jets made the playoffs and beat the Bengals the next week too. lol

    Knock the teams out of the playoffs if you have a chance!!!

    Also the Bears gave a half-hearted effort against the Packers in the 2010 finale. The Packers would've missed the playoffs if they lost. Then they went on to beat the Bears in the NFC Championship and win the Super Bowl.

    Knock teams out!!! Unreal.

    I doubt we go 9-7, so nothing to worry about.

    We own head to head tie breakers against Pittsburgh, New York, and San Diego. Divisional record is the next tie breaker, which we'll have a chance as long as we go 3-3. Next is conference record, and ours should be pretty good.

    I never understood why we were ahead of Baltimore in last week's playoff seeding. Their divisional record has to be better than ours.

    Ah, I was looking at the wrong set of tie breakers. Here's the list for Wild Card tie breakers:
    Good thing divisional record doesn't come into play. I'm a bit worried about our conference record, though. Lost to Houston, Indy, Jax, KC, and probably Denver.
    1. Head-to-head, if applicable.
    2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
    4. Strength of victory.
    5. Strength of schedule.
    6. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    7. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    8. Best net points in conference games.
    9. Best net points in all games.
    10. Best net touchdowns in all games.
    11. Coin toss.

    If we get screwed out of the playoffs by the Fking Ravens Im doing something bad. Having the Ravens of all teams 1-up is will send me over the edge.
