Four-team scrum coming for No. 6 seed in AFC

2005 NFC Wild Card Playoff Game - Washington Redskins vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers - January 7, 2006 Getty Images

In the NFC, Week 17 will have a pair of division championship games.  In the AFC, the primary excitement comes from a four-team game of one-seat musical chairs.

And each of the four candidates needs help in order to nail down the No. 6 seed in the conference.

Here’s what it will take for the Ravens, Dolphins, Chargers, and Steelers to acquire a seat at the table, and in turn a chance to run the table.

The 8-7 Ravens secure the spot with a win over the Bengals in Cincinnati plus a Dolphins loss at home to the Jets or a loss by the Chargers at home to the Chiefs.  Baltimore wins a two-team tiebreaker with Miami or San Diego, but loses a three-team tie.

The 8-7 Dolphins win the No. 6 seed with a win over the Jets and a Ravens loss or a Chargers win.  A win by all three teams would result in a three-team tie, which would go to the Dolphins based on won-loss record in conference games (8-4 for Miami vs. 7-5 for Baltimore vs. 6-6 for San Diego).

The 8-7 Chargers get the berth with a win over the Chiefs and losses by the Ravens and Dolphins, since San Diego would be the only 9-7 team in the conference.

The 7-8 Steelers get in with a win over the Browns in Cleveland plus losses by the Ravens, Dolphins, and Chargers.  That would result in a five-team tie at 8-8.  Since the rules require ties in the division to be resolved first, the Jets would knock out the Dolphins based on division record (4-2 vs. 3-3), the Steelers would trump Baltimore via division record (4-2 vs. 3-3), and then the Steelers would win the three-team tiebreaker with the Jets and Chargers based on conference record (6-6 vs. 5-7 and 5-7).

If all four teams lose, the Dolphins would win the three-team tiebreaker between Miami, Baltimore, and San Diego via a superior conference record (7-5 for Miami vs. 6-6 for Baltimore vs. 5-7 for San Diego).

Three of the games (Ravens-Bengals, Jets-Dolphins, Steelers-Browns begin at 1:00 p.m. ET).  The final piece of the puzzle comes when Chiefs-Chargers kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET.

For more on which of the four teams still viable for the No. 6 seed is the most likely to make it and the most likely to make noise in the postseason, here’s Peter King of TheMMQB.com and yours truly from the set of NBC’s Football Night in America.

    Awesome!!!

  2. unclebluck says: Dec 23, 2013 7:11 AM

    Hopefully the Ravens or Chargers get in and can compete cause after what my Bills did to the Fins yesterday Miami does not deserve to be in and would not win a playoff game anyway…..

  3. flacconation says: Dec 23, 2013 7:15 AM

    why does a 3 way tie eliminate the ravens head to head win over the dolphins. Thats stupid.

  4. vapor54 says: Dec 23, 2013 7:16 AM

    Ravens won’t last long in the playoffs if yesterday is an omen.

  5. harrisonhits2 says: Dec 23, 2013 7:31 AM

    Pats have been flexed to late afternoon again so they and they Donks play at the same time for the 1 and 2 seeds.

  6. geeoh2k13 says: Dec 23, 2013 7:32 AM

    The fact that 8-8 could possibly get you into the playoffs is terrible. The Rams could possibly be 8-8 after next week, are last in the NFC West and are nowhere near getting a spot in the NFC.

    As Charles Barkley frequently says “Turrible, just turrible”

  7. easyisle says: Dec 23, 2013 7:48 AM

    It seems impossible that no team has a ‘win and you’re in’ scenario when there’s still a spot left, but I guess it’s true. Someone will blame Goodell for the math involved.

  8. t8ertot says: Dec 23, 2013 7:52 AM

    What a cluster. As a bengals fan I want to beat Baltimore to knock them completely out. It’s never good to see a division foe for a third time

  9. fishyinalittledishy says: Dec 23, 2013 7:58 AM

    How about this for silly idea, last game of season make them all divisional games and then split the conferences early and late afternoon. That way us dolphin fans can be put out of our misery in one go.

  10. tavisteelersfan says: Dec 23, 2013 7:58 AM

    As a Steeler fan, I am ashamed to be caught up in this crowd of tier three teams. It is what it is, the Steelers are what their record says they are.

  11. bjwbrown2011 says: Dec 23, 2013 8:05 AM

    Also the divisional records of the Dolphins and Jets are wrong.

    The Jets and Dolphins are both 2-3 in the division right now, so a Jets win puts them above the dolphins with a 3-3 divisional record vs a 2-4 divisional record.

  12. thelogicalsportsfan says: Dec 23, 2013 8:18 AM

    Haha, this has gotten ridiculous.

  13. russel5 says: Dec 23, 2013 8:23 AM

    If all four teams lose, the Jets would have a better division record than the Dolphins. Wouldn’t that eliminate the Dolphins from the remaining tiebreakers?

  14. dondada10 says: Dec 23, 2013 8:31 AM

    So the Phins control their own destiny?

  16. chief4ever says: Dec 23, 2013 8:48 AM

    Since KC has nothing to play for I would say SD wins that game and has a good shot of getting in. I believe the Chargers can make some noise.

  17. natijim235 says: Dec 23, 2013 8:52 AM

    As a bengals fan I am hoping for the dolphins and like my chances at Cincy

  18. natelan says: Dec 23, 2013 8:59 AM

    GO CHARGERS!!

    Bengals will destroy Ravens… Just need the worthless Jets to beat the Dolphins, and we’re in.

  19. icanspeel says: Dec 23, 2013 9:07 AM

    Even though it’s only for the wild card, it’s nice so many games still have meaning week 17.

  20. bigbenownsthenfl says: Dec 23, 2013 9:09 AM

    Pft better be ready If steelers get in this site May crash from us steeler fans rubbing it in and the haters posting massive Hate posts! Please baby jesus allow this to happen. The entertainment value will be priceless!

  21. bjwbrown2011 says: Dec 23, 2013 9:17 AM

    If all four teams lose the Dolphins do not make the playoffs for the same reason why they don’t make the playoffs if Bal, Mia, SD lose and Pit wins.

    As the author themselves states “Since the rules require ties in the division to be resolved first, the Jets would knock out the Dolphins based on division record (4-2 vs. 3-3)” this is why the Ravens win a 8-8 tiebreaker not involving the Steelers NOT the Dolphins.

  22. getyourownname says: Dec 23, 2013 9:34 AM

    It’s disgusting to think of an 8-8 team getting in. But just a few years ago a 7-9 team (Seattle) won a playoff game (and even had a home game).

    Completely agree, and that’s in no small part to the fact that Week 17 matchups are now divisional games.

  24. yamchargers says: Dec 23, 2013 9:58 AM

    No one is scared of Miami and Baltimore just doesnt look that good.

    But the Bolts have bean Denver, Indy and KC. All on the road.

    1) Let them get in and 2) let them be better in the 6th seed than they have been in the 1 or 2 seed. Not playing NE would help.

  25. Nofoolnodrool says: Dec 23, 2013 9:59 AM

    If you think Seattle’s crowd noise is loud wait until the wine from Napa Valley East is unleashed if the Steelers get in and the Ravens don’t. Can’t wait to see it happen!!

  26. billytodd2013blbaad says: Dec 23, 2013 9:59 AM

    The Bengals will beat the Ratbirds since they are at home, The Jets will beat the Phins because after what the Bills did to them Miami simply doesn’t deserve a playoff birth, The Chiefs will beat the Chargers simply for the fact they do not want to see them again in the playoffs which means the Steelers.. yes the same team that started 0-4 will make it into the playoffs and once there it’s an entirely new season. Go Figure.

    @unclebluck

    Yes, the Fins laid a big-fat gooseegg against the Bills yesterday, but to say they couldnt win a game if they got in is very shortsighted. After all, Miami HAS already beaten Indy, Cincy, and NE this year and odds are they would play one of those teams opening round.

  29. igotgamenj says: Dec 23, 2013 10:16 AM

    Miami lost to the Bills in late Dec what else is new this has been happening for the last 25 years ??? Miami has a chance to go 4-1 in the month of Dec they beat every Div Leader Cin, NE, Colts. Just get in and anything can happen .

  30. deathonwings410 says: Dec 23, 2013 10:17 AM

    None of these teams really deserve it. It’ll be by default.

  31. godofwine330 says: Dec 23, 2013 10:19 AM

    What if all four teams win? I didn’t see a scenario for that.

  32. holeinone09 says: Dec 23, 2013 10:23 AM

    I have no issues with an 8-8 team making it into the playoffs. There is in fact significant parity in the NFL, and the saying “on any given Sunday” is very true. In most but not all cases, any team can beat any team on a given day, due to the number of things that can happen. Look at the Ravens last year, they were playing well at the end where it matters.

    After all the issues and mistakes this year, the coulda shoulda’s and mighthavebeens, it is exciting to me that the Steelers still have a chance to make the playoffs. I believe they can beat anyone if they would play as a team up to their potential, even without their injured players. They have enough talent. To still have a significant interest in next week’s game, after how the season started, and after the recent terrible losses to the Ravens and Dolphins, is fine with me. Some are unhappy about the final record impacting the draft position, etc. Not me so much. I will worry about next year next year. For now, I will hold out the hope that the Steelers will get into the playoffs, where Steeler Nation football season will be extended, and where anything can happen. I hear the Steelers are shopping for briefcases right now for 3 teams!

    And make no mistake. If there is one team that no other team wants to face in the playoffs, it is the Steelers. You can thumbs down that all you want, but you know it’s true.

  33. steelnucs says: Dec 23, 2013 10:24 AM

    Hard to believe that my Steelers still have a chance, but there it is – it’s very possible. I hate that I will have to cheer for the Bengals, but that’s what I’ll be doing Sunday.

    If not Pittsburgh, I wouldn’t mind seeing the Bolts make it I guess. As long as the Ravens DON’T.

    I agree – but our win could potentially allow Pittsburgh to sneak in. which is worse (not that I’m scared of either one I just don’t want to hear all the nonsensical pittsburgh chatter if they get in)

    Let me translate that into realistic terms….I don’t want to face the steelers because we would lose.

  37. iuwmgtc says: Dec 23, 2013 10:47 AM

    Note: To Steelers and Ravens fan. Your season is over both of your teams will be 8-8 on the season. Miami is going to win, Chargers are going to win leaving your teams at home “Watching”. The Patriots will lose their last game.
    1.Denver (Bye)
    2.Cincinnati (Bye)
    3.Colts
    4.New England
    5.Kansas City
    6.San Diego
    Colts vs Chargers – Chargers win
    Patriots Vs KC – Pats win
    Denver vs Pats – Pats win
    Cincinnati vs Chargers – Bengals win
    Bengals vs Pats – Bengals win going to Superbowl. Bengals are tough team at home.

  39. stuartscottslefteye says: Dec 23, 2013 10:51 AM

    That’s what happens when you have 32 teams playing only 16 games. I still think a head-to-head should trump a conferenct record. Not sure why, in a 3-way tie, you can’t compare the head-to-head for each team first and rank the teams that played each other accordingly. Then rank them all based on conference record keeping the previous head-to-head rankings in tact. So, for this year Baltimore would always rank ahead of Miami based on head-to-head, irregardless of how all the conference records shook out.

  40. 69finfan says: Dec 23, 2013 10:51 AM

    Actually, it’s the 2nd time the Dolphins have lost to the Bills in late December in the last 5 years. Secondly, if all 4 teams win (Fins, Ravens, Chargers, Steelers) I believe the Fins would be in.

  41. heyguru1969 says: Dec 23, 2013 10:53 AM

    Even though I’m not a Cincy fan, I’ll be rooting loudly for them to beat “Joey Flaccid” and the Ravens. Not this year, Baltimore. Nevermore.

    Ravens fans are on the edge of their seats for the next week. They don’t even deserve to be in this position, or the Steelers.

    Sorry Steelers fans, just too much needs to happen this year, enjoy your 19th overall pick in the draft.

    Just one more letdown for Flukko this week, and the whole Maryland area just may go on a crab cake binge till next season

  45. bryanb88 says: Dec 23, 2013 11:03 AM

    If Baltimore and the Dolphins win at 1:00 PM, that eliminates the Chargers and the Steelers from the playoffs.

    Then the 4:00 PM Chargers vs KC game determines who makes it in as the 6th seed. Chargers win, Dolphins get the six seed. Chargers lose, Ravens get the six seed.

    With the game no longer meaning anything to the Chargers, and KC already a lock at the 5 seed regardless of any of the Week 17 outcomes this becomes a meaningless game for both of these teams.

    FLEX SCHEDULE FAIL!!!

  46. lokim79 says: Dec 23, 2013 11:03 AM

    The Chargers are the most dangerous team out of all these – they are the only one that could crush some playoff dreams and even make it to the Super Bowl. I am a Manning fan so I don’t want to see them there because SD has always been able to keep him off the field even when he was with the Colts. Don’t like Rivers but he is playing pretty well this year which makes them a team you don’t want to see come playoffs – but they are the better team out of the crowd trying to get in.

  47. steelcurtainn says: Dec 23, 2013 11:09 AM

    I really hope to see the dolphins, chargers and ravens lose. If the Jets can beat Miami the steelers have a great shot. Nobody In the afc wants to have to face Big Ben in the playoffs. The steelers may lose to teams they should beat but they can beat any AFC team on any given sunday. If the steelers get in, look out, it could be 2005/06 all over again.

  48. AB in DC says: Dec 23, 2013 11:13 AM

    There’s one big problem coming up Sunday.

    If Miami and Baltimore both win their 1pm games, the 4pm KC-SD game is meaningless for both teams (KC is locked in at #5, SD would miss the playoffs even with a win)

    But a SD win would mean the Dolphins are the #6 seed (per three-way tiebreaker), but an SD loss would mean the Ravens are the #6 seed (per two-way tiebreaker).

    Could you imagine all the noise next week if the KC-SD games turns out to be meaningful to everyone _except_ the two teams playing in it??

  49. azarkhan says: Dec 23, 2013 11:18 AM

    baltimoresnativeson says: Dec 22, 2013 9:59 AM
    Ravens win. And I don’t think it will be close.

    41-7 isn’t close, so he was half right.

  50. madmikekc24 says: Dec 23, 2013 11:19 AM

    Newsflash Steelers fans:

    You’re not special outside of Steelerville . You’re just another NFL team and city and no one fears drawing you in the playoffs. I’d rather play the Steelers than the Ravens, Bengals or Chargers.

    You have a whiney jerk for a QB and an ego maniac (though these adjectives are interchangeable for these 2 guys) for an o coordinator ( who are never on the same page.

    I don’t have any particular beef against Pittsburg or the Steelers. I just don’t see why you think anone fears playing you. You were a dynasty 40 years ago but now you are just like everyone else. Sorry to break the news.

    Tannehill threw for 82 total yards in maybe the biggest game of his career. Can we just sweep the Dolphins under the rug and let the other 4 teams that actually compete try to vie for the 6 seed?

  54. crownofthehelmet says: Dec 23, 2013 11:40 AM

    The Ravens? The same team who has sideline fights between Coach and RB, and a QB who trips over his own feet? That team has a chance?

  55. israeli1981 says: Dec 23, 2013 11:45 AM

    As a Bengals fan I’d like them to draw the Dolphins or Chiefs first round – if they don’t get that miraculous bye.

    Tannehill sacked 7 times and they laid a goose-egg against Buffalo – YES PLEASE!

  56. israeli1981 says: Dec 23, 2013 11:47 AM

    They should give it to whichever NFC West — Arizona or San Francisco — doesn’t get their conference’s No. 6 seed.

    I realize that this is a gross violation of the league’s rules, but c’mon, the AFC deserves to be punished for its mediocrity.

    It’s disgusting to think of an 8-8 team getting in. But just a few years ago a 7-9 team (Seattle) won a playoff game (and even had a home game).
    ———————————————
    Why’s that disgusting? Nearly 40% of the league gets in – that’s pretty average. If there’s parity, all teams will have more losses. If there’s not parity, some division will be weak and its best team may be 8-8 (or 7-9, a la 2010).

  62. unclebluck says: Dec 23, 2013 12:32 PM

    Lot of Dolphin fans down voting today….I will admit that there is much parody in the NFL this year and all teams have beaten other teams that maybe they should not have, the Bills included. Having said that Finners….your team is not going anywhere in the playoff should they win next week….they have no O line to speak of and….oh well….done beating the dead horse…..as we so often say in Buffalo….maybe next year….

  63. rg3sus says: Dec 23, 2013 12:33 PM

    It’s a bit of a long shot for them, but I really wanna see the Bolts get in. They are playing really well now. They’ve improved throughout the year and are playing good football. If they get in, I would not want to have to play them. Of the 4, I believe they are the most dangerous. Ravens a distant second (if they could run the ball they would be higher)

  64. dolphanpete says: Dec 23, 2013 1:27 PM

    Dolphins are going to be the 6th team in the playoffs. And they are gonna be well rested after taking the Bills week off. Remember, this is a team that beat Indianapolis, Cincinnati, San Diego, New England and Pittsburgh. They out played and should have beaten the Panthers and Ravens also.

  65. footballchic777 says: Dec 23, 2013 1:39 PM

    As a Bengal fan….my hope is the Pats lose, Bengals win, and we get the number 2 seed by head to head win! Is that how it works?

  66. bengals3285 says: Dec 23, 2013 1:59 PM

    The bengals should already have the number two seed and should have their fate in their hands. The patriots should have lost to the saints and browns if it were not for crazy luck and terrible refs

  67. cpdurnin says: Dec 23, 2013 2:12 PM

    The reason the Jets are eliminated is because the Steelers and Ravens both have a head to head win over them. Even if the Steelers lose, and the Jets win the Ravens would officially knock them out due to this. Even if all of the teams go 8-8, the Steelers would get in because they would have a 4-2 division record and they have the head to head win over the Jets. The rest of the teams would not get in because they would end up having 3-3 division records. The reason why they would not use head to head victories to decide between the 4 teams going for the 6 seed is because each of them own a head to head victory over each other.

  68. AB in DC says: Dec 23, 2013 2:12 PM

    “crazy luck and terrible refs” affected the Patriots’ losses to the Jets and Panthers too. All four games could have gone either way. And the Patriots won two out of those four. What’s the problem?

  69. dolfan13 says: Dec 23, 2013 2:20 PM

    After yesterday’s… (I can’t bring my self to call it a “game”. The only resemblance to a “game” was the Bill’s D was toying with our o’line like some sort of smallish child’s “game”), I agree that the Bolts look like the team that would best represent the AFC in the upcoming playoffs.

    But, to all of the haters on here who want to say that this team or that team doesn’t DESERVE the 6th seed, SHUT UP!

    The collective teams that make up the NFL have already agreed upon the rules that lay out who DESERVES which spots and who will be sitting at home watching the playoffs.

    I feel that my ‘Phins will somehow find a way to rebound against the Jets (in Miami) The Raven’s will lose to a Bengals team that is still vying for a bye. And that will make what happens between the Chargers and Chiefs moot.

    Then I will proudly cheer them on as they get sacrificed in round 1.

  70. coachbeck says: Dec 23, 2013 7:39 PM

    Bengals are the most complete team in the AFC.

    Takes fluke special teams plays and no calls to beat them.

    Denver will lose to Indy most likely and I’m just not convinced the Pats can score on the Bengals defense.

    And we all know Indy is soft.

    Benal and pats are two best teams in AFC

  71. jtbsteeler says: Dec 24, 2013 9:58 AM

    In Ozzie I trust.

    AFCN results after next week:

    Bungles 3-3
    Steelers 4-2
    Ratbirds 3-3
    Browns who care?

    The Ratbirds had a failure of an offseason and it carried over to the season.

  72. sbchampsagain says: Dec 26, 2013 1:22 PM

    The Ravens, coming of another Super Bowl victory, and having purged their team of 2 HOF and a number of very good, experienced veterans, are in contention in week 17 for their record 6th consecutive playoff appearance.

    Offseason failure?

    Or a model franchise?

    Amazing that Squealer fans think they will get in. The scenario is they advance if they win AND all other teams mentioned lose. This is hilarious. They are proud to be in this position. This is coming from a team that was talking about stairways to seven and all assorted name brands of horse waste. Check it out, guys. Your team has not won a playoff game in years, and they will not win one this year. They will not make the playoffs. They will not sniff making the playoffs. They will not retool and contend for the playoffs next year. They are what their record says they are, the third place team in the AFC North. They should kiss the buttocks of their rivals, the Browns, the only team to keep them from dropping to the cellar this year.

    My Ravens are done. I just don’t see them beating the Bengals who are having a great season, as far as they go (yeah that was a slap in the face). But even if they do win, which I’m sure it will come down to the end, the Chargers and Dolphins will both probably win as well, thus shutting the door.
