[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jets miss the playoffs? : in the morning i played a little with espn's playoff machine, and: if both NY and SD finish 10-6, the 6th spot goes to San Diego. if INDY beats JAX, and both (ny & jax) finish 10-6, JAX would take the 6th of course, there are multiple scenarios, and a lot depends on 1) whether SD wins out (likely: SF, @CIN, @DEN) 2) whether KC wins out (not so easy: @SL, TEN, OAK) So NY needs to finish 11-5 to guarantee a spot @10-6, they'd need SD or KC or JAX 's help

NY has only lost to 3 AFC teams, while SD has lost to 4.
NY owns that tiebreaker, which is the first one available. If SD sweeps and ends up 10-6, and NY does too, but loses to Pitt this week, you are correct.
Then it would come down to points scored, I believe.
So, really, if we want to root for a team to make sure Green NJ doesn't make it, it's go SD!
If, at the end of the regular season, two or more clubs in the same division finish with identical won-lost-tied percentages, the following steps will be taken until a champion is determined.
- Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
- Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
- Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
- Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
- Strength of victory.
- Strength of schedule.
- Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
- Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
- Best net points in common games.
- Best net points in all games.
- Best net touchdowns in all games.
- Coin toss
