    It looks like the Seahawks will hold on to beat the Steelers which will leave Pittsburgh tied with Indy, Houston, KC and the Jets for the two wild card spots.

    Indy is in as the AFC South leader and KC gets the first wildcard as they beat the Texans H2H. As of today, the Texans are the second wildcard as they beat the Jets H2H and they have a better conference records than Pittsburgh.

    So, forget having other teams do their dirty work. The Texans just win and they're in. Of course, winning out means they win the AFC South anyway.

    So much for having a weak division

    After the steelers loss, we about to have TWO AFC-S teams in the playoffs picture!

    I think KC gets in.

    Andy Reid has them playing their asses off and their remaining schedule has NO teams with a current winning records

    Pittsburgh remaining:
    Indy
    Cincy
    Den
    Bal
    Cle


    I've been assuming our only way in was to win the AFC-S and never even considered a wildcard spot. But surprisingly, we're slotted at 7th place, and Pitts have a tough road ahead.

    Now the question becomes, do we root for Indy or Pitts next week??

    If you can control it, it is not destiny. :)

    Can't you say that about 90% of the league, if you win out you're in?

    The winner of the @Indy game might decide who wins the division.

    Treat it like a playoff game.

    Not sure who was thinking #1 draft pick but it was way too early and the Texans were only like 2 games from the Colts.

    If you tell me the Pats are done then I definitely have to go with Denver. Looks like they found another good qb to go along with that defense. Will be tough to beat

    Big Ben might be out against the Colts with a concussion. They catch another break possibly.

    I never want to see "the only tough/bad/good games" again. The Rockets can attest to this. Everyone in the NFL can beat them.

    The turn around has been great. Colts losing always best serves the Texans. Remember, we still pretty much have to win @INDY to take the division... something we all know has never happened. That game effects the division and conference record. Losing that game also puts us behind multiple teams in the loss column. We need Indy to lose whenever possible. Damn Falcons couldn't beat them.. smh.
