    This link is pretty cool. Click on each match-up for the remaining weeks and it tells you the playoff seeding.

    My simulation has the Colts winning the division and the Texans finishing 9-7 and missing the play-offs.

    In my scenario, even if the Texans win out, we won't be making the playoffs.

    Let's see. The scenario requires the Jets to go 0-5, and the
    Raiders to go 5-0. The Colts and Jags must ALSO go 2-3 each.
    Oh, yeah. The Texans also must go 4-0 to end the season.


    Yeah, right. Losing tiebreakers to the Jets, Chargers, and Ravens
    cost the Texans BIG.

    Cowboys over Colts
    Titans over Jags

    Oakland over Jags
    Titans over Colts

    Texans over Jags


    If that happens, we're in, assuming we win out

    All we gotta do to make the playoffs is win the next 14 games in a row. :)

    lol that somehow actually gave me a tiny bit of hope- all that needs to happen is for us to win out (not that unlikely given our past record of finishing strong and our opponents), the colts to go 3-2, and every other game to go as expected (steelers beating jags etc)

    we seem to have tiebreakers over every other team in our division if we all finish 9-7

    we can get in at 8-8 meaning we can lose to the ravens and still get in ......????

    all we need is the colts to lose to Dallas and the Jags

    THere is a way to get in at 9-7 but we will have to play Balty Pittsburg Jets all in the playoffs Yikes

    interesting...

    of all the selectable criteria, the Saints' best chances are if you select the "Defensive Ranking" option

    Not the criterion I would've expected to put us in the #1 seed slot -

    cool
