The game is essentially meaningless. If Bengals beat Ravens last week of season Jets are out regardless of the results of the three games you listed in your scenario.
My friends keep telling me im crazy when I say tonights game means nothing. The Bengals at 9-7 , with a loss being to Philly, would beat us on the tiebreaker. The Dallas-Pitts game means everything.
In a weird way, Cincy winning may be the better result. If they beat Philly and Pitts and Balt loses to Denver and Giants (not a massive stretch) then Baltimore is an a must win scenario for the Division in that last week, where we need them to beat Cincy.
