    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
    beating cincy actually is if you cant beat the chargers. and how cna you say the browns arent a difficult task, you lost to them already

    It in all honesty comes down to two games in reality. But obviously if the Bengals lose to the Steelers than all is lost. But the divisonal games between the Ravens and Bengals, and Steelers and Browns could be just as significant to each team if the bengals beat the Steelers in week 16.

    1.Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
    Steelers 1-0

    2.Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
    Steelers 2-2, Bengals 1-3

    3.Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
    Both 5-3

    4.Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    Bengals 5-5, Steelers 4-6

    5.Strength of victory.
    Couldnt find a measure of this.

    6.Strength of schedule.
    NFL.com had them tied for 14th

    7.Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    Bengals 5th in PTS/G, 7th PTS/Allw, Steelers 9th in PTS/G, 3rd in PTS/Allw

    8.Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    Bengals 11th in PTS/G, 14th PTS/Allw, Steelers 21th in PTS/G, 7th in PTS/Allw

    9.Best net points in common games.
    Bengals 26, Steelers 22

    10.Best net points in all games.
    Bengals 41, Steelers 14

    11.Best net touchdowns in all games.
    Bengals 36, Steelers 29

    12.Coin toss
    Undecided
    Philadelphia Flyers Philadelphia Phillies
    Seattle Seahawks Cincinnati Bengals
    Phoenix Suns
    Notre Dame Fighting Irish Kansas Jayhawks

    They need a lot to happen.
    no, they actually only need to beat pitt and baltimore (and that baltimore game might not mean anything to the ravens) if pitt wins 2 but loses to cincy, and cincy beats b-more and pitt, they'd be tied record wise, tied divsion record wise and it falls to the conference record where pitt would be 5-7 and the bengals would be 7-5.

    based on what? it looks to me that it depends who the bengals lose too. they would be tied down to the conference record, and the next tie breaker is Stregnth of vicotry, which we wont know until season end

    "The Steelers only lose on the road to ****** teams" according to her. Also "good teams don't get blown at home" much less by the almighty Chargers.

    Bengals game next week against the Eagles means nothing.
    Bengals beat the Steelers
    Bengals lose to the Ravens

    Steelers lose to the Cowboys
    Steelers lose to the Bengals
    Steelers game against the Browns means nothing.

    Jets win out.

    That's the only way I see the Jets making it.

    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.
    "...more talking went on between us all until [Roethlisberger and his entourage] left the bar. Then I seperated with [name redacted] and the other girls and went with another group, and everything else happened, and I was told about it this morning and felt I needed to give my statement. Looking back and hearing all of the details, it seems to me that it was a set-up, and so I think this needed to be told."

    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.

    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

    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.
    To some, he was just a boy. A boy who played football, a football player that grew to be a man. A man that took over a city, a city that he made his own, a city that stands behind him in hopes of becoming one of that cities all-time greats. To some, 2013 was a fluke. To some, he can't do it again. To some, he got lucky.

    To us though, to the Philly faithful, that QB is Nick Foles. To us, that's our QB.

    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%.

    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

    It depends how they play. I admit they have been a yoyo this year. On their best day they can beat Houston, New England.
    Then on a bad day they can lose to the raiders, chargers.
    I don't really count the browns game that was without Ben and with 8 turnovers still only losing by 3 so I don't think the game week 17 against them will be a problem.

    No I'm saying this team is solid and would have probably won both games against the ravens had Ben played.
    The loss to the browns shouldn't be held against them since it was a 3rd string Qb who couldn't throw ten yards add in 8 turnovers ad a 3 point loss is actually not bad. I guarentee had Ben played that browns game would have been a W.
    but that is what ifs.
    It doesnt change e act that with ben they lost to a bad raiders team and a bad chargers team.
    The facts are we beat the bengals already this year healthy for the most part, and I see no reason we won't again if we play like we did the first game.
