Playoff Scenario at 8-8



Following the previous thread, I wanted to see who would win the 2nd wild card if each team plays as expected.

My result is a kind of crazy scenario where the Steelers, Bills, Jets, and Ravens tie at 8-8 and the Steelers then win a very close tiebreaker over the Ravens. Here's how this might play out, with the teams below projected to win most of their home games and to win road games against non-contenders

Steelers (8-8) - Best Browns (2x), Dolphins, Bengals, Lose to Ravens and Packers.

Ravens (8-8) - Beat Steelers, Jets, Vikings, Bengals (week 17), Lose to Patriots and Lions.

Jets (8-8) - Beat Dolphins (Home), Raiders, Browns, Lose to Ravens, Panthers, Dolphins (Away)

Bills (8-8) - Beat Falcons, Jaguars, Dolphins, Bucs, Lose to Patriots

Chargers (7-9) - Beat Raiders, Lose to Chiefs (away), Broncos, Lose 1 home game vs Bengals, Chiefs, or Giants

Titans (7-9) - Beat Cardinals, Texans, Jaguars, Lose to Raiders, Colts, Broncos

The Browns, Dolphins, and Raiders have many tough games and can all be expected to be 7-9 or worse.

Of course, if any of these teams - hopefully the Steelers - gets really hot, then it will probably lap the others for the 2nd wild card spot, and the Steelers could still win the division. But at the same time, the Steelers can still lose 1 game (and possibly even 2 games) and still make the playoffs.
