If we end up in a two-way tie with Pittsburgh, here are the tiebreakers:

1. Head-to-head record. Not Applicable - we didn't play the Steelers.

2. Conference record. We win, because Pittsburgh is 7-5 in the AFC and we would be 9-3 with a win over Cincinnati.

The only way we can end up in a two-way tie with Pittsburgh is if we win, they lose, and San Diego loses.


If we end up in a three-way tie with Pittsburgh and San Diego, here are the tiebreakers:

1. Eliminate teams in any division that has more than one candidate, so that there is only one team in each division. This means that we have to beat San Diego in a tiebreaker before we go into the tiebreaker with Pittsburgh.

2. [Division tiebreaker with San Diego]. Head-to-head record. Tied. We beat them 20-7, and they beat us 28-20.

3. [Division tiebreaker with San Diego]. Division record. Tied. We both swept Oakland, both split with Denver, and split with each other to end up with 4-2 division records.

4. [Division tiebreaker with San Diego]. Record against common opponents. They win. We both swept Oakland, both split with Denver, and split with each other within the division. We both beat the Jets, Patriots, and Redskins. We both lost to the Cowboys and Eagles. We beat the Dolphins, and they lost to them. However, we lost to the Giants and the Bills, and the Chargers beat both of those team. Therefore, they went 9-5 and we went 8-6.

Based on this, the Chargers would then move on to compete against the Steelers, and would lose since the Steelers beat them in the regular season.

The bottom line is that any one win against any one team, and we would control our destiny next week. If we had one more win, then San Diego couldn't catch us and Pittsburgh would lose the tiebreaker against us. That Dallas game really hurts.

The only way we can end up in a three-way tie with Pittsburgh and San Diego is if we win, Pittsburgh loses, and San Diego wins.

The Philly game is the one that REALLY hurts. It was AT Arrowhead and we gave it away...

Wrong. I knew we wouldn't score a TD on them before the game started.

I really wish I could forget that game.
