Basically what it's come down to...
1- Beat Miami
2- Three of these four teams need to lose or
Can somebody explain why the Texans are listed over the Steelers? If I remember right, if there's identical records, it goes to head to head, but since the Steelers didn't play the Texans it goes to record in their division. The Steelers are 2-4 while the Texans are 1-5 in their respective division. They're both 5-6 in conference play...I just don't understand...I think I'll need to review the tie breaker rules again...
Ok, just reviewed the rules...since they're not in the same division, division records don't count, so it goes to conference play... Since they have the same conference record, it goes to similar games played....Won't look into that right now, so if anybody cares to compare schedules, I won't mind
What muddy waters tie-breakers are...
1. Head-to-head, if applicable.
2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
4. Strength of victory.
5. Strength of schedule.
6. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
7. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
8. Best net points in conference games.
9. Best net points in all games.
10. Best net touchdowns in all games.
11. Coin toss.
It would suck to get down to that coin toss and lose.
