I have never really looked into this before because it confuses the hell out of me but I started to look to see what would happen if the Pats and Jets tie. It is very scary, last week was a huge loss for the Pats. Scenario Jets lose to Bears and then win out, finish 11-5 Pats lose to Bears and Jaguars, finish 11-5 We get into tie breakers, the attached spreadsheet breaks in down. Please let me know if I missed anything, but by my calculations it will go down to the 5th tie breaker (strength of schedule). Hopefully the Jets fall flat and this scenario never happens.
