The AFC was fine last week. I didn't see the issue. And really, the misspellings aren't a big deal. It is not bad to the point where the information is invalidated or not readable.

Every team imo has 3 very difficult games and two easier opponents they can't afford to lose. The Vikings are the exception with 4 tough games.

I think its conceivable that one of these 5 teams can go 4-1. Whoever does makes the playoffs i think.
While it certainly is conceivable, I don't think any of those teams will go 4-1. I expect the final wild card spot to go to a team with nine wins, and the Seahawks or Buccaneers look like likely candidates at this point.

You can't rule out New Orleans either.

Saints (5-6): Falcons, Giants, Bucs, Cowboys, Panthers

While the division races in the AFC are pretty much done, the wild card picture has a chance to get really bunched up this week. Pitt is against Baltimore most likely with no Big Ben and the Bengals are against the Chargers which isn't an easy game either. Don't think it's unrealistic to say those teams could be 6-6 with a bunch of other teams at 5-7. Colts are in Detroit this week too and I could see them being at 7-5 after this week.

After this week I think:

Colts L 7-5
Bengals W 7-5
Dolphins L 6-6
Steelers L 6-6
Buffalo W 5-7
Jets W 5-7

Loss would put the Dolphins at 5-7. Also I think Cincinnati could lose on the road to SD. Baltimore nearly did.

Not necessarily. The Giants/Saints game next week could be for a wildcard.

I think 9-7 is going to make it in both conferences, so they'd obviously have to win out. If they do, they'll have dealt the Cowboys their 7th loss, Tampa their 6th and New York their 5th, all currently ahead of them. Beyond that, Tampa is in Denver this weekend and still has to travel to Atlanta at the end of the season. I think they lose both.

The Giants are in Washington this weekend and after the Saints game next week, they've got two tough matchups on the road in Atlanta and Baltimore. If Washington wins at home on Monday night (very doable), New Orleans really just needs the Giants to lose either of those road games. If Washington takes care of business the rest of the way otherwise (@CLE, @PHI, DAL) with a stumble against Baltimore, they'll take the division at 9-7, and the Saints would be sitting pretty in a tiebreaker vs. the Giants.

Minnesota has a very tough schedule and I fully expect Seattle to fall off when their CBs get suspended eventually so I'm not even really factoring them in. If you want to consider either team, New Orleans' is going to have a stronger conference tiebreaker (I'm not bother to check common games right now) in all likelihood.

Do I think this happens? Probably not. I think New Orleans wins everything but that Giants' game, ending the season at 8-8.

Saints have 5 conference losses, so if they run the table they would finish 7-5 in the conference, which could be enough to squeak in at 9-7. Crazier things have happened.

Vikes, Seahawks and Redskins have 4 conference losses, although the Saints lost to the Redskins (but that is a non-factor if it's a crazy 3+ team 9-7 tie and Saints have the best conference record of all the teams).

Bucs and Cowboys are at 5 conference losses.

I feel like if the Bucs can beat Philly and St Louis and one of Denver, NO, Atl, they should be able to sneak into the wildcard. Hopefully we'll catch an Atl team resting it's players and maybe even a reeling NO team and get revenge for that BS loss. I love the way Schiano has this team playing. No one thought the Bucs could be a possible playoff team.

Miami: They beat Cincy earlier this year, so that's their path to the playoffs: finish tied with the Bengals. Their schedule is brutal though, and their home game vs New England is actually one of the three easiest match-ups. If they can pull off that upset, then they root for the following: Mia wins vJac and vBuf to get to 8-8 (6-6 AFC), while Pit loses @Bal, vCin, & vCle, and Cin only wins @Pit and vBal. So long as no 4-7 team runs the table this should get Miami to the post-season.

Sorry dude, thats just not going to happen. Even if the Dolphins miraculously win these games they will be huge underdogs in, there is no way your Steelers scenario is going to play out the way you listed. Big Ben should be back next week, and they have a serious shot at running the table when he does (they always beat Cleve/Cin at home & should beat SD at home & even thier lone road game at Dallas)

Where did I say it was possible or not, I just merely stated what needs to happen.

That Steelers/Bengals game on Dec 23 will most likely determine a playoff spot. If the Steelers win thier 3 remaining home games, that should clinch a playoff berth. Only thing I'm not sure about is what would happen if Pitt/Cin/Indy finished in a 3 way tie at 10-6.

Indy would be 7-5 in conference.

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.

Gotcha. So it does sound as if as long as the Steelers WIN that game against Cincy, and thier other 2 home games vs SD & CLE,they could finish 10-6 & get in. (the loss would be to Dallas and not affect thier conference record).

that Denver/Baltimore game in a couple of weeks should decide who gets the 2 seed in the AFC. Unless New England loses a game in December and all 3 teams still have 4 losses then its back to the tiebreakers.
New England has the HTH tiebreaker over Denver
Baltimore has the HTH over New England

Cannot believe the Steelers pulled that game out last night.

I wouldnt be suprised if that win yesterday pushes Roethlisberger back a week. San Diego at home. They should beat the Chargers at home with Charlie Batch.
I say bring Roethlisberger back against Dallas barring a setback.

If the Steelers win out & Ravens lose 3 of those 4, Steelers win the North. Problem I see is the Ravens 2 toughest games (DEN/NYG) are at home & I can't see them losing both. I think they go 2-2 in thier last 4 games. But they seriously need to stop thinking that Flacco can be the guy to win games for them......they have got to ride Ray Rice. Rice having a grand total of 12 carries yesterday was inexcusable.
