Although I guess that there was the one year we went 11-5 and didn't make the damn playoffs
In 1997 we were 12-4 and did just that. We were the 4 seed, because KC won the division at 13-3.
Back then only 3 division winners and 3 WCs......vs. 4 and 2, respectively today.
AND at 12-4 we were the 2nd best record in the AFC.
Pitt was the 2 seed at 11-5. NE was the 3 seed at 10-6. We were 4 seed at 12-4.
