Playoff Scenarios (How to Make the Playoffs)



There has been a lot of confusion about how we can make the Playoffs. Its gets very complicated when multiple teams are involved and the wording is weird. I think i have it done and I will try to help everyone out. This is not official

Ok, assuming we win against the Chiefs, we will be 9-7.

Now here are the ways to get in. The Jets (Play against Cincy) , Steelers (Play in Miami) , Ravens (Play in Oakland), and Texans (Play against Pats ) are all 8-7 like us.

1. Jets lose, Ravens win, Pitt wins, and Houston win. This creates a 4 way tie. In This Case, we get the 6th seed and play the Bengals in the first round. We will NOT, i repeat we will not get in if Houston loses b/c due to tie breaking procedures, we cant get in with a 3 way tie b/t Pitt, Balt, and us. We can only get in with a 4 way tiebreaker with Houston in it.

2. Jets lose, Pitt loses, and Balt win or Jets lose, Pitt lose, and Balt win This gives us the #6 seed again b/c the jets and Ravens/Balt would be out and we would get a spot.

3. Jets win, Balt Lose, and Pitt lose This knocks Balt and Pitt off and we get the #6 seed yet again

WE DONT GET IN IF THE FOLLOWING HAPPENS

1. Jets lose, Pitt win, Balt win, and Hou Lose Can't get in in a 3 way tie b/t Balt and Pitt

2. Jets win and Balt win or Jets win and Pit win We are automatically out if this happens

So that is it i believe. It gets very complicated when you try to explain why someone overtakes someone so if you have any doubt at all, click on the link i provided under each scenario. Again this is not official but i will  make changes if it is incorrect when the NFL releases the scenarios. So basically root for the Texans NO MATTER WHAT. It doesn't matter that they are tied with us. They can not overtake us and a win from them only helps us. Root for the Jets, Pitt, and Balt to lose! You may want to Rec'd this so it will be up to all newcomers come this sunday.
