With two weeks left, here's how things stand:
(2) Sandy Eggo
(3) Nuh 'Ngland
So, here's a quick two week checklist for what needs to happen (most likely scenarios) for Pittsburgh to get into the postseason:Week 16
[ ] Pittsburgh beats Baltimore at home.
[ ] Denver loses @ Philly.
[ ] Jacksonville loses @ New England.
[ ] New York Jets lose @ Indianapolis (or lose to Cincinnati at home in Week 17).
[ ] Miami loses to Houston @ home (or loses to Pittsburgh at home in Week 17).
[ ] Houston loses to Miami on the road (or loses to New England at home in Week 17).Week 17
[ ] Pittsburgh beats Miami on the road.
[ ] New York Jets lose to Cincinnati (if they beat Indianapolis in Week 16).
[ ] Houston loses to New England at home (if they beat Miami in Week 16).
Now, assuming Pittsburgh takes care of business these last two weeks (
), I think the biggest challenge to them getting in will be Jacksonville. They go to the Razor this weekend and with their ground game, I could see them just lining up and smashing it down the Pastries throat. Howevuh, New England does still have something to play for as Miami could win out and steal the division from them with a better conference record (3rd tiebreaker).
It should be mentioned that both Balty and Denver could get bounced from the playoffs entirely. The Ravens have two tough road games @ Pittsburgh and @ Oakland. They could finish 8-8 and be outside looking in. Unlikely though. If Denver can steal one in Philly this week, they're pretty much guaranteed a spot as they would only have KC remaining @ home in Week 17. *EDIT* - And really, if Denver beats Philly, that would all but close the door on the postseason for Pittsburgh too because they would only leapfrog the Broncs if the Chefs beat 'em in Week 17.
I'm pretty sure the Jets and Houston lose this weekend; relatively sure that Jacksonville and Denver lose; and unfortunately, have no idea if Pittsburgh will win. If those things happen though, Pittsburgh would control their own destiny and just have to go to Miami and beat the Henne~led Fins in Week 17 and they're in.
