Default Balt is in?

Can someone explain how the Ravens clinched a playoff spot if both The Bengals and the Colts can still end up with a better record than the Ravens? What am I missing here???

They beat pissburg in tiebreakers and they would finish with the same record if pitt won out even if they didn't win a game.

If the Bengals and Colts both end up with a better record than them, then the Ravens will still get the 6 seed.

Bengals 4
Colts 5
Ravens 6
Steelers out

Now next week they have another chance to clinch the division. Hopefully, they don't.

If we have a better record than the Ravens that would mean we win the division, then they would most likely get the 6th seed. In order to have a better record we will have to beat the steelers, which basicaly knocks them out. The Ravens then win the tiebreaker against the jets and they are in.

nevermind you are right...they would hold the tiebreaker over anyone in the wc race...if the bengals win the last two and win the division, the jets and colts both win their last two (and the ravens lose their last 2) that would leave the wc spot to the jets and ravens...look at their afc records.

espn got it right and i spoke too soon lol.

Well, I do understand the part were we would win the division and would be in but where does that leave the Colts...with a better record and out??? That doesn't male any sense... well, to me it doesn't!

They would have to own the tiebreaker at 9-7 over Pitt, Cincy and Jets to be already in.

There are two wildcard spots. If Cincinnati and Indianapolis end up with better records, Cincy get's the North, Indy get's the first wildcard, and Baltimore gets the second. Super easy.

All this means is Pitt will be desperate now next week. Hopefully they wilt under the pressure. However, they usually get focused and play their best football. We will need our A+ game next week.

Because there is still one spot left, and they beat pitt and jets with tie-breakers. No one else is in contention. You are talking about spots 4, 5, and 6. They secured the 6 spot.
