    According to the site i linked above, there is a 1.5% chance we make the playoffs if we go 2-1. Not sure what would have to happen. It's going to be hard enough to get in at 3-0 at this point. Really could have used an Indy loss yesterday.

    I would take KC if they are at home in that one......

    Dome team traveling to chilly Arrowhead could be a problem for a rookie QB (that came from toasty California)

    ESPN playoff machine

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/machine

    Says if we go 8-8, we can lose to BUF (not Tenn or SD)

    But then we'd need
    #15: @PHI over CIN & @DAL over PIT
    #16 CIN over @PIT
    #17 BAL over @CIN & CLE over @PIT

    If both Pitts and Cinci lost 2 then tied each other we get it with 8-8. I'll make this easy. To get in at 9-7 we actually need Cinci to beat Pitts week 16 then loss to Balt. If they do they have the division breaker over Pitts and we have the breaker over over Bangles because of the Indy win. If Pitts wins week 16 it is over unless they loos both 15 and 16.

    Jets have to win out and go 9-7. In my opinion, both wildcard spots are available:

    5. Indianapolis (9-4) - I could see them not winning another game this season, play Texans twice and have to play Chiefs on the road in Arrowhead. Chiefs have been playing better with Quinn at QB and for some reason always seem to get upset wins a the end of the season.

    6. Pitt (7-6) and Cincy (7-6) - they still play eachother one time so that by itself probably knocks out one of these teams. I think Cincy is odd man out they have tough schedule with @ Philly, @ Pitt, Ravens.

    So we want the Patriots to win tonight? We need Houston to play for something in their match ups against the Colts?

I am not sure if he is correct about the last part, but in his scenario Pitt would not sweep the Bengals this season.
