Question: Somebody explain this to me????? Everything I read says tennessee is completly out if Pitt wins on thursday but from what I thought I had figured out thats not true......What if Cleveland wins out and wins the division....Pitt wins thursday but turns around and loses to Baltimore.......Tenn Wins out......SO both teams have the same record same conference record next is record against common opponets....This is where I get confused.....Pitt loss to jacksonville and tenn beat them the first game than lost the second time they played....SO if you take the first time they played them tenn is 2-2 against common opponets while Pitt would be 1-3 against common opponets giving tenn. the edge right........SOmeone please explain to me why this reasoning is wrong.......because everything I see says if pitt wins thursday tenn is out?

Tenn beat jags (first time) will beat the jets if they win out lost to denver and cincy. Pitt beat........ cincy and lost to the rest of them NO everyone so far is WRONG!!!!! they say pitt will have a better record against the afc but they wont.....IF TENN wins out they are 7-5 in the conf.....IF PITT LOSES ONCE TO BAL.....they are 7-5 in the conference trust me i have done my homework you guys are wrong so far

That rule number 3, about common opponents, is only applicable if there are 4 or more common opponents. Next would go in conference, in which Pitt is 7-4, and Tenn is 5-5. Addition: Theres been some elaborate scenarios submitted....but its this simple...rule 3 is out because not enough common opponents....rule 4 doesnt apply to the St Louis game if they win, Conf records....so it goes down to rule 5.....quality win...if u do the math, If Pittsburgh beats St Louis, the winning percentage of the teams Tennessee has beaten will not be ABLE to be greater than the winning percentage of Pittsburghs beaten foes.....I say simple, but it gets confusing if you dont know Additional Addition: If Pitt loses to Baltimore, and Tennessee wins both last games, they will BOTH be 7-5 against AFC...so, go to rule number 5.....strength of schedule....if you average the winning percentage of the teams that Pitt has beat, assuming they beat St Louis, which is what this is all about (and they lose their last game against Baltimore), it will be a higher winning percentage than all the teams Tennessee beat, even if they win their last 2. So, if Pittsburgh beats St Louis, there is no way Tennessee can go to playoffs, due to rule number 5...rules 1 and 2 are ties, 3 doesnt apply, 4 is a tie, 5 goes to pittsburgh with a win over St Louis

Originally Answered: Most intriguing playoff series?
A few come to mind: 1)Boston/Montreal- Montreal has taken the last 3 series, two of which being a 7th(2004) or 8th seed(2002). Boston is clearly the better team on paper, but considering the past, one would be crazy not to give Montreal a shot. 2)Philadelphia/Pittsburgh- Pittsburgh has been on a tear since the All-Star break. I see a Pittsburgh victory here and this will be a very physical series. 3)Detroit/Anaheim- this won't happen if the Blues win tomorrow, but these two teams always play great games. Anaheim has taken the last 2 series, so we'll see what happens. 4)Chicago/Calgary- Chicago is a very young, but hungry team. Calgary has been on a major slump and they're not going to the playoffs on a positive note.

Ok some people that answered your question are just completely stupid. They have absolutely no understanding of how the tie breaker formula worked especially the guy who said that jacksonville and cleveland have no relevance to tennessees playoff picture. I am a huge fan of the titans and this is how they make the playoffs. First they need to win there two remaining games and which will make their conference record at 7-5. Then one of the following things needs to happen. A) Cleveland needs to lose to cincinatti, which will make titans and browns conference records the same. However, titans will win via strength of victory B) Steelers lose final two games. C) Cleveland wins division and steelers beat rams but lose to ravens. THEN depending on strength of victory would come into play because both teams dont have enough common opponents. D) jacksonville needs to lose both final games which is highly unlikely because they play houston and oakland. Possibility they lose at houston but not oakland. Finally.... keep in mind that tennessee plays home vs. jets and then indy who will only play there starters for the first half and those games are always close. So there is still a decent chance of them making the playoffs dont listen to others there just dumb and bias.

Ok, you have 6 "seeds" in the playoffs in each conference. The top 4 seeds are the division champs. So the Patriots are locked in as the #1 seed, the Colts are locked in as the #2 seed. The #3 seed right now is the San Diego Chargers. Even though Cleveland and Pittsburgh both have the same record, the Chargers have the better record against AFC teams. The #4 seed right now is Pittsburgh, since they beat Cleveland twice this year, they hold the tiebreaker. The #5 seed would be Jacksonville, because they have the best record of all the remaining teams. Lastly, the #6 seed is Cleveland because they have the second best record of all the teams who did not win their division. Now, in order for Tennessee to be eliminated from playoff contention, Cleveland and Pittsburgh BOTH have to win one of their last two games. That would make it impossible for Tennessee to catch them. In order for Tennessee to make the playoffs, either Cleveland or Pittsburgh has to lose BOTH of their last 2 games and Tennessee has to WIN both of theirs. If Tennessee loses either of their last two games they will be eliminated because they cannot finish with the same record as Cleveland and Pittsburgh and make the playoffs. Why? Because Cleveland and Pittsburgh will both have better records against other AFC teams which is the tiebreaker in that situation.

There must be some other factor that is missing from the equation. In the past, I've had the same argument about my team, and was never given a satisfactory answer. To me, its kind of like the mystery of Nascar points. Just when you think you have it figured out, some "mysterious rule" comes into play and all reasoning goes out the window.

Tennessee is done. Mathematically they still have a chance but its not going to happen. The Steelers will win out (sry the Ravens arent gonna beat them) and there is no chance the Titans are going to beat Indianapolis. Vince Young is one of the worst QB's in the league. 70.1 QB rating (4th worst in the league), 171 ypg (not even top 31), 9 TD's (3rd worst in the league, just to put it in perspective Delhomme had 8 in 3 games lol), 16 INT's (2nd most in the league)...the guy sucks.
