To clarify various scenarios with Pit, NYJ and Ten all tied at 9-7: 1. Head-to-head doesn't apply in this case because Pit didn't play NYJ or Ten. 2. Conference record -- all the teams would be tied at 6-6. 3. Record in common games -- This needs 4 or more games to apply. There are only 2 or 3 games among common opponents(Mia and Jac), so it doesn't apply. (FWIW, NYJ is 1-1, Pit and Ten 1-2.) 4. Strength of victory -- Ten leads now, and probably would keep the lead after beating NE and Buf. Cheer for the teams we beat. So, Ten would finish ahead of Pit and NYJ in a 3-way tie, even though they would finish behind either individually. How does Pit beat Ten in a 2-way tie? The tiebreakers are in the same order as above. However, Pit and Ten have 4 games against 3 common opponents (Mia, Bal, and Jac) -- Pit will be 2-2 if they win out, Ten 1-3. Thanks to ezeblazin for the nfl.com conference standings, and to Titans2004 for pointing out 9-7 KC would finish 2nd in the West over 9-7 Den. I endorse all of Titans2004's posts in this thread, assuming he knows that 2-loss Jets + 2-win Steelers = bad.
