yeah, I saw all the scenarios of how the steelers could advance, and the common theme is houston losing..basically I see houston losing as nothing more than---keeping them from advancing into the steelers spot, since their game is an afc opponent, i am assuming it makes them equal to steelers in conf record, but perhaps houston had a stronger schedule, so the schedule strength is a tiebreaker that would advance them...perhaps a strength of victory tie breaker too..
but hou lose, steelers win, and either jets or ravens lose, then steelers advance...there are 2 other ways too, but this one is the simpliest and the one that is the least far fetched...probelm is--
cin, and oakland...the opponents of balt and NYJ---cin may sit out, so jets could be the luckiest team this year, and advance on bullcrap..
oakland--who will show up?--the team that beat us, and philly, or the ones that the browns just beat to death?.....
what makes me mad is---KC,browns,oak,chicago....or the first matchup with ravens....especially KC....change one of those outcomes, and we aren't outside looking in....and all those losses was close ones....
hey man, just wanted to say i was wrong (well, nfl.com was) and you was right, forgive me there...you would think the official website of the NFL would be correct huh?
guess not..LOL!.....just wanted to say thanks for clearing that up for me, so i didn't send more ravens fans to the mental ward with wrong stuff...
you the man.....

This is from NFL.com, so I really don't understand how Denver is ahead of Baltimore (or Pittsburgh)
Step one is head to head, so we should both be over them... Not making any sense, I think they screwed up.
that thing is confusing bro..LOL!....all ya got to do is look at the conf record..
and realize that every afc team in the playoffs play an afc team....so the afc conference records really tell the whole story..just one game too....
my below list will show you who will advance...denver/jets/balt have the same conf record....and the same win loss....so that makes it simple....
basically jets and denver wins, they are in..if one falls, then whichever team listed the highest here that wins will advance in their place..
that simple bro....if bal and hou win, then bal advances....
if den and jets lose---same thing..
highest team listed that win advance... bal/hou/steelers....
Would certainly help, get those bone-crushing bloodbaths out of the way for the long runs, would be real good if one of them was before the bye week.
hoiston is already ahead of us, as of right now...
7-ravens, 8 houston-9 steelers..
that is the current seeding....houston has a better afc conf record than steelers....
this is the current seeding..I saw you say in a post that if houston loses, it knocks out denver....now houston plays NE..and denver plays KC..and I just couldn't make sense of that statement..
not being a butt, but I think that statement isn't correct on houston....denver wins they are in..jets win, they are in..both teams are in the drivers seat win and in...
they rest need losses.....balt,steel,hou...
Oh thats right I forgot you guys beat Denver so you have a head-to-head tiebreaker over them... Resting Manning ****ed with the system...
I think there is a conspiracy in the NFL, they had the Ravens and Steelers games played so late in the season that we'd knock eachother from the playoffs. (that is, if we don't make it.)
Don't the Broncos have to lose too for all 3 teams to make it? They play KC though. KC has been playing pretty tough recently though, and Denver is 2-7 since starting 6-0.
