    No because we hold the tie-breaker over Houston.

    How we can get in...

    Ok. I might have too much free time, but this was killing me. Heres what I came up with. This doesnt include if the Ravens or Broncos lose out, which would completely change the seedings. Im just going strictly off what needs to happen. Lemme know if im incorrect. Im going off the current standings on NFL.com for the AFC Conference:

    #5 Baltimore Ravens 8-6
    @ Steelers
    @ Raiders
    Have to lose to us

    #6 Denver Broncos 8-6
    @ Eagles
    Chiefs
    Have to lose one
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    #7 Jacksonville Jaguars 7-7
    @ Patriots
    @ Browns
    Have to lose one

    #8 Miami Dolphins 7-7
    Texans
    Steelers
    Have to lose to us

    #9 New York Jets 7-7
    @ Colts
    Bengals
    Have to lose one more

    #10 Pittsburgh Steelers 7-7
    Ravens
    @ Dolphins
    Have to win out

    #11 Tennessee Titans 7-7
    Chargers
    @ Seahawks
    Doesn’t matter

    #12 Houston Texans 7-7
    @ Dolphins
    Patriots
    Doesn’t matter

    Could be possible be less upbeat than it was? :P

    Great post right here, and it pretty much sums it up! The tie-breaker rules are pretty complicated, and it gets even worse when its the wildcard tie-breaker, but here goes:

    TO BREAK A TIE FOR THE WILD-CARD TEAM
    If it is necessary to break ties to determine the two Wild-Card clubs from each conference, the following steps will be taken.
    If the tied clubs are from the same division, apply division tie breaker.
    If the tied clubs are from different divisions, apply the following steps.

    Two Clubs
    Head-to-head, if applicable.
    Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
    Strength of victory.
    Strength of schedule.
    Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    Best net points in conference games.
    Best net points in all games.
    Best net touchdowns in all games.
    Coin toss.

    Three or More Clubs
    (Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of applicable two-club format.)
    Apply division tie breaker to eliminate all but the highest ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2. The original seeding within a division upon application of the division tie breaker remains the same for all subsequent applications of the procedure that are necessary to identify the two Wild-Card participants.
    Head-to-head sweep. (Applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)


    There are way more rules too it, but this is the scenarios Steelers will probably face if, by a little luck, everything pans out.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    What's up guys- been a while...

    Feels like the playoffs already. Having flashbacks to AFC Championship week. This will be a fun week.

    One thing's for sure- I'd much rather play you coming off a win than a loss that eliminated you from playoff contention. Makes this Sunday's game very exciting. Too bad they can't put it in primetime.
