Well, if we beat New England the best they could do would be 12-4 so even if we lost out we'd have beaten them so we own the tie-breaker.
Denver and Baltimore play each other in 2 weeks so one of those teams will have another loss and could at best be 12-4 with a loss to us so we own the tie-breaker on that team.
If the other team out of Denver or Baltimore wins out and we lose our last 3 after beating New England than we would end up with the 2nd seed.
We still would need 1 more win.
