Default Question about Tie-Breakers with San Diego

So, if San Diego and Denver finish with the same record at the end of the regular season, be it 12-4 or 11-5. Under what circumstances would we own the tie-breaker? Would a San Diego loss to Cincy give us the tie-breaker?

Under the circumstances that we beat Oakland, KC, and Philly
and that they lose one more game than us that game being against Dallas, Washington, or Cinci

If we lose to Philly but beat KC and Oak, then we need them to lose 2 of the three games against Dallas, Cini, and Washington

If we lose to the Chiefs or Raiders, then it wont matter they will own tiebreaker

Doesn't w/l record against common teams include your division? I think it does. Therefore, there are 12 games against common apponents. We both have 3 games left. The Bolts are 7-2 and we are 6-3. They still have to play (Dal, Cinn, Wash) and we have (K.C., Oak, Phil). Who ever ends up with the best record of the 12 games would win this tiebreaker.

That is tiebreaker #2 so both teams would have the same record vs the division. The results would be the same if you included those games or if you didn't.
