7. Bengals essentially locked up the division by week 9.
Not quite, but they're definitely in great shape. I see at least two more losses for them - San Diego and Minnesota in consecutive road games. If they don't crap the bed in any other games - which is likely as their heads get bigger with each win - that puts them at 12-4. Which means we'd have to run the table to win the division. Looking at our schedule, that's actually doable if we can beat Balty twice. Our toughest remaining game otherwise is at home (Green Bay), and the rest of the teams are 4-5 or worse.
Odds are long, agreed. But we should at least get wild card if we play decent. Not terribly excited about chances against Indy/NE at the moment, but plenty of season left.
