Need to kill an afternoon? Check out this playoff scenario generator.
I doubt it happens, but the scenario needed for the Steelers to get the 6th seed isn't that outlandish:
1. Pittsburgh wins both games
2. Denver loses to Philly or KC
3. The Jets lose to Indianapolis or Cincinatti
4. Jacksonville loses to New England or Cleveland
5. Tennessee wins out or
Houston loses against Mia or New England
We are now fans of New England, Philly, Indy, and Cincy.
I never thought I would type that sentence.
Steelers winning out.
