Is this right?
No. If A-D happen we would control our destiny in week 17
Actually we win a 3 way tie, so we get in with winning out and a Cincy victory over Pitt and any other loss by Cincy. If Pitt beats Cincy, we need to either have Cincy win their other 2 games or Pitt to lose both. Mathematically a Cinci win Thursday might give us a very slightly better playoff chance than a loss.
