Playing with the ESPN Playoff Machine, I was unable to find a way to get the Colts a #6 seed.

Even with Baltimore getting the #4 seed at 10-6, and Cincy and Indy also all finishing at 10-6, it would make sense to me that Baltimore wins the AFC North and #4 seed based on a better divisional record than Cincy's. So to break the #5 seed tie between Cincy and Indy, it would come down to the 4th tiebreaker strength of victory.

Unless I am looking at something wrong, or the ESPN Playoff Machine is wrong under that scenario, it might be appear that Indy is locked in at the #5 seed, but I am not exactly sure why.
