    Default Lolley: Next three weeks could decide AFC North

    Sunday, November 01, 2009
    Next three weeks could decide AFC North

    The next three weeks may very well decide who wins the AFC North title this season.

    While Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are off, Baltimore hosts unbeaten Denver in one of the marquee matchups of Week 8.

    A loss by the Ravens, which would be their fourth in a row following a 3-0 start, would all but bury them in the division race.

    Week 9 will send the Ravens to Cincinnati, while the Steelers head to Denver.

    Again, given that Baltimore has already lost once to the Bengals at home, a loss at Cincinnati would severely damage Baltimore's playoff hopes, even if it defeats Denver this weekend.

    A loss by the Steelers in Denver would drop them to 5-3 and would, more importantly, be the team's second AFC loss.

    It wouldn't be a killer, but it would hurt.

    Week 10 then sees Cincinnati visiting Heinz Field, while Baltimore heads to Cleveland for what should be a cakewalk over the Browns.

    Having already lost in Cincinnati, the Steelers have to beat the Bengals at home to have a chance to win the division, particularly with two games remaining against the Ravens.

    I am so glad the Denver/Pittsburgh game is on Monday Night. The Steelers will come into this game fired up to play on national TV. I see our defense showing the Broncos what a true top defense looks like. We will not be outplayed by their defense. I see Ben outplaying Orton big time. Would not suprise me if we walked into Denver and walked out winning by double digits.

    It also could muddle the hell out of the division.

    What if next week..

    The Steelers beat the Donks
    The Ratbirds beat the Bugles..

    Ok, Steelers lead the division by 1.

    Then the following week..

    The Bugles beat the Steelers
    THe Ratbirds destroy the clowns (which they will)..

    Well, at that point it's all tied at 6-3...

    ... And if that were to hold, we'd be "odd man out" based on the 2 losses to the Bungles...

    TO BREAK A TIE WITHIN A DIVISION
    If, at the end of the regular season, two or more clubs in the same division finish with identical won-lost-tied percentages, the following steps will be taken until a champion is determined.

    Two Clubs
    Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
    Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
    Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
    Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    Strength of victory.
    Strength of schedule.
    Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    Best net points in common games.
    Best net points in all games.
    Best net touchdowns in all games.
    Coin toss

    Three or More Clubs
    ([HIGH-LIGHT]Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated during any step, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of the two-club format[/HIGH-LIGHT]).

    Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games among the clubs).
    Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
    Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
    Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    Strength of victory.
    Strength of schedule.
    Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    Best net points in common games.
    Best net points in all games.
    Best net touchdowns in all games.
