This surprised me, and odds are still against it happening, but it's clearly within the realm of possibility. If I have my tiebreakers right, it goes like this: 1) Pats win out. Then, there's one game a week for us to root for: 1) Cincy beats SD this week. Who knows what role emotions will play for Cincy this week. 2) SD loses at Tenn the next week. Combine the resurgent Titans with a bizarre Friday night playing time, who knows what will happen. 3) Cincy loses to at the Jets the last week. The Jets D has been playing well, and could shut down Cincy the last week of the year. Does anything here sound impossible?
