How Steelers can beat the odds

December 15, 2013 - Ray Eckenrode

BAL
Lose to DET OR NE AND CIN
Finish 8-8
3-3 division
7-5 or 6-6 conference

MIA
Lose at BUF and vs. NY
Finish 8-8
2-4 division
7-5 conference

SD
Split with OAK, KC
Finish 8-8
3-3 division
5-7conference

NYJ
Defeat CLE AND MIA
Finish 8-8
3-3 division
5-7 conference

TEN
Eliminated with loss today

PIT
Defeat GB, CLE
Finish 8-8
4-2 division
6-6 conference

+ In a five-way tie at 8-8, PIT wins division tiebreaker over BAL based on division record and NYJ win over MIA based on same. That leaves PIT, NYJ and SD. PIT wins that tiebreaker based on conference record.

+ PIT needs NYJ to be involved in any multi-team tiebreaker to take care of MIA. As long as that dynamic exists, PIT controls most tiebreakers.
