    so, why does Baltimore get the tie breakers against the Chargers exactly? is it number of wins vs AFC opponents?

    I believe it is win/loss in the AFC


    1. Apply division tie breaker to eliminate all but the highest ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2.
    2. Head-to-head, if applicable. (For ties between 3 or more teams, this step is only applied if there is a head-to-head sweep; i.e., if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
    5. Strength of victory (record of all the teams they defeated that season).
    6. Strength of schedule (record of all the teams they played that season).
    7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    9. Best net points in conference games.
    10. Best net points in all games.
    11. Best net touchdowns in all games.
    12. Coin Toss.

    East Coast bias, obviously.
