Very much alive.
We need to win otu regardless, so if we do, our conference record will be 7-5. Bengals are 5-5 right now with games against the Steelers and Ravens (we hope they beat the Steelers, because the Steelers play the Browns week 17). Steelers also play the Cowboys who are in the playoff hunt in the NFC. Since the Steelers beat us head to head, we need to finish with a better record, thus we need them to go 1-2 against the Bengals, Cowboys, and Browns, or else were done. 1-2 isnt likely but very possible, already having lost to Cleveland, and the Bengals and cowboys gonna be leaving it all on the line too.
Jets at 9-7 have a legit chance, and facing the Titans, Chargers and Bills? Idk, not gonna get too optimistic.
Next tiebreaker would be common opponents.
Cincy common opponents would be Jacksonville, we both won, Miami, we won one and lost one, they only lost one and Chargers, who they beat and we need to. We would win that tie breaker if we win out. The Steelers beat us head to head so we need t finish with a better record.
