Well none of the options to make the playoffs are easy and they are all pretty much unlikely -- I will try my best to break it down...
- OBVIOUSLY MIAMI WOULD NEED TO WIN OUT -
Miami can actually still win the division. New England would have to lose their final 3 games (Texans, @ Jaguars, @ Titans). New York would have to lose 2 of 3 (Minnesota, Miami, Oakland). Miami would win the east and be the 4th seed.
For the wild card...
Jacksonville Jaguars (8-5) -- @ Tenn, New England, @ KC.
(Best scenario: Lose all three games or 2 of 3 With Cincy losing all 3)
Cincinatti Bengals (8-5) -- @ Indy, @ Denver, Pittsburgh.
(Best scenario: Lose all three or 2 of 3 [beat Pitt])
Kansas City Chiefs (7-6) -- @ San Diego, @ Oakland, Jacksonville.
(Best scenario: Win only 2 of 3, beat Jax)
New York Jets (7-6) -- @ Minn, @ Miami, Oakland.
(Best scenario: Lose to Miami.)
If all of this happens...
Miami would end the season 9-7 (6-6 Conf.)
Jacksonville Jaguars end the season 8-8 --- (5-7 Conf.) (would not qualify)
Cincinatti Bengals end the season 8-8 or 9-7 --- (6-6 or 7-5 Conf.)
Kansas City end the season either 8-8 or 9-7 (Miami owns tie-breaker)
NY Jets end the season either 8-8 or 9-7 (Miami would own tie-breaker)
If Cincy wins 1 of 3 then Miami and Cincy are the wildcards.
If Jacksonville wins 1 of 3 and Cincy loses all 3 then Miami and Jax are the wildcards.
Whooo. I'm dizzy... :dolphins:
