    So if we win out, do the Broncos have to lose out, or do we hold the tiebreaker if we both end up 9-7?

    Okay they can go 1-1 and we can make it.....but it depends on wether they lose to Baltimore in week 17. No matter what we need them to lose that game.

    It is my understanding if Denver wins one more game they beat us out.

    If my playoff machine is right it depends on if Denver beats KC in week 17.

    If they beat KC they'll finish with the better division record.

    This was a really fun game to watch! Great job on Defense and Offense! Even special teams didn't screw up!

    If they don't, and we both finish 9-7, we would also have identical conference records. We would get into one of those lower level tiebreakers where who the heck only knows what happens.

    Okay never mind, I'm wrong.

    If Denver wins again, we're done as far as the division goes.

    So, essentially, its the o8 (?) season again. That's the one where we made playoffs because the Donkeys lost like 8 straight, right?

    The Broncos have to lose out, so our playoff hopes rest on us beating the Lions and Raiders and Denver losing to the Bills and Chiefs.

    Actually our wild card chances might be better than division chances, especially because a Donks win at BUF effectively seals the division. Assuming we finish 9-7 (if we don't then we're done) here's what it comes down to:

    Oakland (7-7): Out, as they would be no better than 8-8
    NY Jets (8-6): Have to lose to NYG and at MIA. One win eliminates us from the wildcard due to our meltdown against them
    Tennessee (7-7): Final two are JAX and at HOU. M0re analysis needed if we finish tied.
    Cincinnati (8-6): Final two are ARZ and BAL, both at home. More analysis needed if we finish tied.

    In short, we are completely eliminated next week with (not looking at ties here):
    - Loss at DET, or
    - Wins by DEN and NYJ

    Me too. Thing is, Eli sucks in pressure situations at home. And the Jets are going to be looking to bounce back from getting their arses kicked today (course I guess the Giants will be too..)

    Simplify... We need to win out.

    We need Denver, Oakland, Cincy and NY Jets to lose A LOT.

    Actually if we lose to the Lions, beat the Raiders and the Raiders, Broncos, Jets, Bengals, and Titans all finish 8-8 along with us, we're in. ;)

    other scenerios involve the chargers winning out and jets, bengals losing once....as long as titans win once...and other such nonsense. win out and we have a chance even if the donkeys win another one.
