    I was reading on houstontexans.com the various tiebreakers and found this:

    Denver Broncos
    Current seed: 6th (2nd Wild Card)
    Record: 8-6 (6-5, 3-2)
    Remaining schedule: @PHI (9-4), KC (3-11)
    Texans need them to: Lose two, finish 8-8
    Tiebreaker: Texans lose on strength of victory

    I read the official tiebreaking procedures page but I am unsure what this means:

    Is this net points to win by?

    I believe the playoff teams are seeded lowest. Then it goes by record. Then, if there is a tie it goes straight to strength of schedule.
