Good ole ESPN Playoff Machine is online

Recommended Posts

Did a little experiment to figure out what it needs to have the Chiefs taking the #1 AFC seed.

Assumption: The Chiefs win out, go 15-1

Pittsburgh would have to lose at minimum one to fall behind - and here's what the machine says:

If Pittsburgh loses to Cleveland, Indianapolis, Buffalo, or Baltimore - the Chiefs are #1
If Pittsburgh loses (only) to Washington, Cincinnati, or Jacksonville - they stay on top.

If Pittsburgh win out as well they obviously will keep the #1 ... 

In any case: See you in the AFC Championship game.

It's going to be such an important year for that 1 seed, too. Between the bye, and the fact that the 7 seed in the AFC is likely going to be a very strong team, still. The AFC honestly has like 8 reasonably good teams, so I'd rather not have to play any more games than necessary this year. That 7 seed could be Baltimore, Tennessee, Las Vegas, etc.

Ultimately, though, I think we wind up at 14-2 and miss out to Pittsburgh going 15-1.

And if Pittsburgh, Baltimore must play wk.18? No real advantage to Steelers even if they win.

And if a forfeit ?? Is a possibility.

If we win tomorrow, I will start paying more attention. Our last five games are Denver, Miami, New Orleans, Atlanta, LA Chargers. We should be at least 4-1 in that run. Pittsburgh is not much tougher. Assuming they get past Baltimore, they finish with Washington, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Cleveland.

We beat Baltimore. IF the Ravens win tomorrow, we will own a tie breaker against the Steelers.

Don't think a forfeit is an option. As of now, with Jackson on COVID probably out, it's RG III to face PIT. Not the best scenario for the Chiefs right now.
