Ok, say we lose next week, there are 50 teams at 7 - 7.

Who do we want to win/lose?

We want every ****ing team to lose.

Miami owns us in tiebreaker right now - Baltimore IS going to be in the playoffs.

Pitt can now match us (they also own us).

If we lose next week or against KC we're done.

Hence... why this was a must win game vs a ****ty team and why the forum is bat **** crazy right now.

This game WAS A MUST WIN.

Season is over baring some sort of miracle win @ Philly and then ... assuming we don't lose to the ****ty Chiefs (who btw could beat us just like the ****ty Raiders).

I'm not sure I want a playoff spot, if it means getting our @55es handed to us.

We have already beaten both teams who we would play.

Denver is very much in the drivers seat. I honestly don't see any of the 7-7 teams winning out.

Miami:
Houston
Pitt

Jets:
@Indy
Cincy

Pitt:
Baltimore
@Miami

Jax:
@ Indy
@ Cle

Tenn:
SD
@ Sea

Houston:
@Miami
NE

I played with the Yahoo playoff generator (really cool app btw), surprisingly out of 10+ combinations, only 2 has us out of playoff IF we lose to the Eagles but beat KC (which won't be easy for sure).

the keys seem to be 1). Jax loses one more game and 2.) Jets do not finish 9-7 AND ahead of Miami (somehow if Miami is also in the mix at 9-7, it helps us).

Very interesting to be sure.

Good news is....Jets and Phins lost.....if Indy beats Jets next week, and NE beats the Jags.....we can still get in at 9-7

Denver still has a very high chance of getting in at 9-7.
Baltimore and Pitt, one of them will be at most 9-7.
Houston and Miami, one of them will be 8-8 at best. Then you have Miami also having to play Pittsburgh. Cross Miami off the list, they are done.
Jets have Indy and Cincy, I think its very high probability they lose one of those to go 8-8. They are done.
Jacksonville has the Pats and the Browns. Pats must win otherwise it doesn't look good because the Jags have a great conference record. They go 8-8, they are done.
Houston has Miami and New England. This will be a team to watch because they could very well go 9-7.

What about TEN?..They can win against SD and SEA.
Also, there are chances that PIT can win 9 games.

Here are the conference records after today, remaining games in parentheses:

Denver 6-5 (Phi, KC)
Houston 4-6 (Mia, NE)
Pitt 4-6 (Bal, Mia)
Tenn 4-7 (SD, Sea)
NYJ 4-5 (Ind, Cin)
Jax 7-4 (NE, Cle)
Mia 5-5 Hou, Pitt)

Assuming Balt secures the 5th seed, Denver has a one-game lead overall for the 6th seed, but Pitt has the tiebreaker over us if we both finish 9-7. If Jax finishes 9-7, they would have the tiebreaker over us as well due to a better conf. record (they would be 9-4 and we would be 7-5, assuming we lose to philly and beat KC). Mia would be the only other team to worry about if they finish 9-7 because their conf. record would be the same as ours at 7-5.

In summary, we need Pitt, Jax, and Mia to lose 1 of the 2 remaining games and we need to beat KC. Of course we can control our own fate if we win the last 2 games.

I can't believe there are so many teams with a chance to get in. We screwed up bad today.

yep..isn't it funny..TEN started at 0-6 and they have a shot to reach playoff's.

We started 6-0 and after the bye week..we choked in typical fashion.

**** all of you and your tie breaker bull****. Team sucks and couldn't win a home game against a bad ****ing football team. No need to talk about playoffs unless they win out.
