Our remaining schedule:

Week 11: vs. The Eagles

Week 12: AT Jax

Week 13: AT Tennessee

Week 14: vs. Baltimore

Week 15: AT NY Giants

Week 16: AT NY Jets

Week 17: vs. Pitt

The bolded are absolute MUST WINS. Aside from those, realistically we need to beat ONE OF Tennessee, Baltimore, or PIttsburgh to get to 11-5.

If we lose any of the bolded, that's bad news for us/out playoff aspirations.

Gotta win the Tennessee game to control all the tie breakers

I wanna be able to beat a playoff team for confidence going into the playoffs so we need to beat one of Pit/Bal for confidence. We know the intensity we have to bring so be prepared.

We are about to be very healthy--Chubb, Phillips, Greedy (jk probably), Teller, Wilson, Hooper--and I like our chances. Our system should be getting comfortable--honestly pretty amazing how we've played in year one of a new system with such a young team--and I see our trajectory as sky's the limit. 

tl;dr let's slay both the freestyle raper and the wildcat RB

If we kick Baltimore pit the playoffs.... well that would be hot.

From an AFC Playoff Picture standpoint/aside from our game, here are the big ones:

*Packers vs. Colts (COME ON PACKERS!)

*Tians vs. Ravens (Really kind of a win/win for us with the loser going to 6-4)

*Dolphins vs. Broncos (*Note* The Dolphins next two games are very easy ones)

*Chiefs vs. Raiders (Chiefs should hopefully get payback here and we really need them to win)

So, IF WE WIN, we will go to 7-3 and ahead of:

*The Colts (Tiebreaker or by a game after a loss to GB)

*EITHER the Titans OR the Ravens

*The Dolphins if the Broncos upset them

*The Raiders if the Chiefs win

The bottom line is, we MUST WIN vs. the Eagles, Jax, NYG, and NYJ, and if we do, we are probably in at 10-6. Now, if we happen to beat Tennesse as well, then we hold the tiebreaker over both them AND the Colts for a WC spot, and the Colts and Titans still have to play another time, as well as the Bills and Dolphins having to play another time.

At this point, Pitt is all but a lock to have the division wrapped up, but if we were to find a way to upset Baltimore, then that would also be huge for us, even if we lost to Tennessee...but ironically we would need to beat Tennessee even more than a divisional opponent since Pittsburgh is going to win the North and we need tiebreakers.

Oh, by the way, a bunch of those above teams still have to play the Steelers and the Chiefs.

10-6 should do it barring a complete collapse/major upsets by teams who play the Steelers and/or Chiefs.

So a win over Tennessee now puts us in a very good position for tie breakers if I am not mistaken. Still a lot of games to go but looking better.

If we win vs the titans and then baltimore continues to descend we are ok.
