Complete Fiction: Do we have a shot at the Playoffs

Obviously, our chance of winning  a Division Title has passed.  But can we still make it to the Playoffs as a Wildcard?  It's a big ask, but mathematically possible.

I'm sure we'd have to win out, but theoretically, we could drop a game and make it, but all the right teams have to lose for that to happen.

First up, Can we finish second in the Division?  Or can we finish third and be one of three AFC South teams in the Post season.  Like Jacksonville, Tennessee and Indy were two years ago.

Secondly, who else in in the hunt and how many games do they have to drop for us to be in it?

 

Part One

Schedules

Texans(5-6):    @Jacksonville, Seattle, @St Louis, @Miami, New England.

Jaguars(6-5): Houston, Miami, Indy, @New England, @Cleveland.

Titans(5-6):     @Indy,  St Louis, Miami, San Diego, @Seattle.

So while we look down the stretch and see (I hope) four winnable games and a finale against the Pats, finishing 10-6.  

After us, the Jags have three more tough games.  It is conceivable that Jacksonville loses to us, Indy, Miami and NE, then wins against the Browns.  Finishing 7-9. 

Hopefully the Titans lose in Indy this week, then drop a game against the Dolphins or the Chargers.  Finishing 8-8 as well.

Part Two

Other teams in the mix.  We're not sure who else will be a Division champ, so that leaves a lot of variables out there to ponder.

Anyone else want to chip in with some thoughts.  Its 2am here in New Zealand, So I'm going to try and get some sleep before work in 5 hours time.
