    This coming weekend should help clear the picture up a great deal.

    Jacksonville (7-6) hosts Indianapolis, which will continue to play its starters - at least this week. And next week, the Jaguars travel to New England before finishing up at Cleveland.

    Miami (7-6) travels to Tennessee (6-7). A loss by the Titans would end their playoff hopes, while a loss by the Dolphins would make things difficult for them considering they have to host Houston (6-7) and the Steelers (6-7) to finish things off.

    The Jets (7-6) host Atlanta (6-7) before travelling to Indianapolis next week and finishing up with Cincinnati. That's a pretty tough road, though the Colts and Bengals could be resting some people.

    Baltimore (7-6) hosts Chicago this week before coming to Pittsburgh in Week 16. The Ravens head to Oakland in Week 17.

    After hosting Miami this week, Tennessee heads to San Diego in two weeks and finishes up at Seattle.

    And Houston has games with St. Louis and New England sandwiching the game with the Dolphins.

    One of that group of teams will win the final playoff spot in the AFC.

    Jacksonville currently owns the best conference record at 6-3, which could come into play in a three-way tie. But the Jaguars would need to beat either Indianapolis or New England to get to 9-7. It's possible, but not likely.

    Miami has a tough road as well, starting with this week's game at Tennessee, where the Titans have won four games in a row. Houston and its high-octane passing attack could also cause troubles for Miami's soft secondary.

    The Jets have been up-and-down behind rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez, who's likely to return this week. I don't trust them to win two of their final three at all.

    Which brings me to Baltimore. It may not be what Steelers fans want to hear, but I expect the Ravens to at least get to 9-7. Though Baltimore is just 2-4 on the road this season, the Ravens have a 6-4 conference record. They should beat Chicago this week and though I think the Steelers will give them a tough battle and could beat them in Pittsburgh in two weeks - neither team ever wants to lose to the other - I would expect them to win in Oakland to get to 9-7, at worst.

    In tiebreakers with two teams, head-to-head is the first consideration. Next is conference record. If there is still a tie, best won-loss record in games against common opponents, with a minimum of four is considered.

    If that still doesn't settle things, strength of victory is considered.

    we would need Baltimore to finish 8-8 in order to be seeded ahead of them because they own the tie breakers. Jacksonville lost, so that is good. Pittsburgh is on life support but their is still a faint heart beat.

    Right now the Steelers have the 9th ranked offense and the 4th ranked defense.

    Throw away the record which includes 5 losses in the last 15 sec or overtime and that team is a playoff threat to anyone.

    ... Don't "bump" it for me....

    I enjoyed the game as much as anyone (and will do so the last two weeks as well), but it really doesn't change things... You have a long conveluted list of precursors for this dillusional occurance to happen... Denver and Baltimore will be the two wildcards IMO.... If it happens differently, so be it....

    ... Man, we win one game and it seems that everyone forgets reality and starts thinking crazy.... Get a grip folks, not much has changed... I love our team.

    LOL!~

    I'm just having fun with it.

    It's been a long time since I could, ya know?

    Truth is though, with the 9th ranked offense and the 4th ranked defense, it is a team to be feared if they make it in.

    They just need Tomlin and Lebaue to unleash the dogs all 4 qtrs.

    Having Troy back would be huge.

    Gte rational and root for an 8-8 finish (can't lose to the Ratbirds) and hope for a decent draft slot in 2010!

    You don't retool this team drafting in the 20's or wherever a 9-7 gets you.

    We need DB help (at least two safeties and one or two good CBs), O&D line help, an ILB, and.....

    I guess Kirschke got most of the snaps today because he is better than eason and Hood (which isn't saying much). Forget Gay, Carter abnd Clark. Max should go, because you can get a young FA lineman for his $8 Mil. Buy buy Reed, FWP, and "Big Snack," although I wish they would keep him.

    The Steelers just lost the wrong games. They lose all the tie breakers in the event that there's a 3 way tie. Bad record in the conference and terrible in the division.

    Why did they just say on Steeler's radio that if the Steelers, Ravs, & Broncs finish in a 3-way tie, Ravs get 5 and Pitt gets 6--- Are they wrong?

    you realize that no matter where we finish we don't get 10 1st rounders right Is it a big drop from 12 or so to 20 or so?

    It seems we are divided on the forums between

    I am the opposite school of thought, I think if you have a chance to win a championship in the NFL no matter how slim or how good they may be then you take it.

    If we do get in, nobody will want to run into us.

    I think that is right, actually. Baltimore wins the tiebreaker for the 5th seed then they go to a second tie breaker for the 6th seed, which Pittsburgh wins based on head to head. Things get complicated if the Jets, Jaguars, Titans, or Texans are involved, though.
