    Arrow Competition for the final playoff spot in the AFC

    Five of the six playoff spots in the AFC are all but mathematically secure. Expect the Texans, Patriots, Broncos, Ravens and Colts to make it. That leaves one playoff spot left. After tinkering with ESPN's playoff scenario generator, I've determined the following...


    The Steelers clinch a playoff berth with:

    - A win over the Bengals AND the Cowboys OR Browns
    - Wins over the Cowboys AND Browns PLUS Bengals losses to the Eagles AND Ravens

    The Bengals clinch a playoff berth with:

    - A win over the Steelers AND the Eagles OR Ravens
    - Wins over the Eagles AND Ravens PLUS Steelers losses to the Cowboys AND Browns

    The Jets clinch a playoff berth with:

    - Wins over the Titans, Chargers AND Bills PLUS Steelers losses to ANY TWO of the Cowboys, Bengals and Browns PLUS Bengals losses to ANY TWO of the Eagles, Steelers and Browns


    Realistically, it comes down to the Steelers and Bengals. The Dolphins, Browns, Chargers and Bills each have eight losses, and the Jets have to win out and hope for both the Steelers and Bengals to lose two of their last three games.

    Sadly, I'm not sure that any of these teams even deserve to make the playoffs.

    It's cute you think they don't, considering a) they still control the #6 seed in the AFC, b) the Bengals blew a golden opportunity to take control of their fate.

    When the Giants lost at home to the Redskins last Week 15 and fell to 7-7, you probably told Giants fans that you thought it was cute they thought they still had a chance.

    This is to just get a reaction out of Steelers fans. No one on this site is that unintelligent.

    The Steelers are actually in position to take that spot now, and by no means have to work miracles to get it. They just need to beat the Bengals at home, and Browns at home to clinch. By no means a really difficult task

    With the way they are playing, yes, yes it is a difficult task. You better hope Philly can upset Cinci.

    No need. Take a look at ESPN's playoff scenario generator and follow these instructions:


    1. Observe the current #6 seed in the AFC.
    2. Select the Steelers to beat the Bengals in Week 16.
    3. Select the Bengals to beat the Eagles in Week 15 and the Ravens in Week 17.
    4. Select the Jets to beat all three of their remaining opponents.
    5. Select the Steelers to beat the Cowboys in Week 15 and lose to the Browns in Week 17. Observe the #6 seed in the AFC.
    6. Select the Steelers to lose to the Cowboys in Week 15 and beat the Browns in Week 17. Observe the #6 seed in the AFC.


    If the Bengals lose to the Steelers but beat their other two opponents, then they're out, period, unless the Steelers lose both of their other games.

    Well she guaranteed you that you were going to lose big tonight, you didnt like it so you cried and cried. Now shes telling you that your going to lose your first playoff game, shes going to be right again.

    Considering they already beat Cincy I wouldn't say it is super hard. The fact is this steelers team is very up and down beating the ravens with a 3rd string Qb and losing by 3 with a 2nd string. Losing to the raiders and browns (with a back up)
    I think they beat Cincy which they already have and beat the browns which would have been a blowout if Ben had played the first time so it isn't a super rough path

    this contradicts itself. the ravens beat them and then lost to them as you said because they are up and down, but the bengals are an easy win? and using that logic, you should lose to the browns again. you cant have that both ways

    This is a pretty dumb comment.

    It really comes down to whoever wins that Cincy game. Yeah, Pittsburgh looked awful yesterday, but that game is at home. If they handle that game, and then win against either Dallas or Cleveland, they're in. They don't need to rely on Philly like you said.

    So of course they have a chance.
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    Let me rephrase what I said.

    Pittsburgh is not a playoff caliber team right now. Better? Sure, they COULD get in, but I don't see them as a team that could do anything while they are there.

    Could I be wrong, of course. Is it just my opinion, of course.

    OK Nick, here is what I need you do. Go over there and grab me some water, a towel, and make yourself comfortable while I WRECK THIS ISH.

    Well, if what you meant by "have a chance" was making a playoff run, then yeah, I'd agree. But the thread is about making the playoffs, and I'd imagine (and we'll see what football outsiders say) their odds are close to or over 50%.
