Both CIN and PIT have 5 losses in the conference, so whoever loses their game will have 6 losses.

But let's say CIN beats PIT to earn the season split, they both finish 3-3 in division (PIT would also have to beat CLE, CIN would have to beat BAL), then it goes to common games to determines who finishes ahead of the other.

PIT and CIN would have the same common games record. This is easy to calculate, in their 2 ''non common'' games, they both went 1-1.

It then goes to conference record.

PIT would be 6-6. CIN would be 7-5 in this scenario (their 1 loss in the next 4 would be to NFC team DAL or PHI). PIT would be eliminated as CIN would be ahead of them in all scenarios.

IND and CIN go to the playoffs. Colts would have #5 seed due to 4-1 record in common games to CIN's 3-2 record.
