“Do you believe in miracles? YES!”

Oh, sorry, wrong sport. But nonetheless, the Bengals come up in the clutch and beat the Jaguars; a team that would be called out by my ninth grade basketball coach Mark Miessler with the unforgettable phrase: “You pissed their pants in the big show!”

As a result, the Ravens bye week went even better than imagined as four sub-.500 teams beat four playoff teams and have the Ravens as the No. 2 seed in the AFC!

+ In a multi-team tiebreaker, you first use divisional tiebreakers to get to one team per division. Pittsburgh and Cleveland go to a divisional tiebreaker, which the Steelers win based on their AFC North record. Indianapolis and Houston go to a divisional tiebreaker, which the Colts win based on head-to-head record. After the divisional tiebreakers, the Steelers and Colts go to a tiebreaker which Pittsburgh wins on record in common games to claim 5th. With the Steelers eliminated, the Browns and Colts go to their tiebreaker. Cleveland has a win over Indianapolis to slot in 6th. Then we revert back to Indianapolis and Houston, which the Colts win to stay 7th. Houston is 8th.
