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.
Because no matter what happens next week, Indy has a better strength of victory tiebreaker over Cincy.
