Steelers Can Clinch Playoff Spot In Week 14 – 2011 Playoff Scenarios – Updated

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a chance to clinch a playoff spot in week 14 and it can happen with 3 different scenarios. The only spot they can clinch this upcoming week is the 6th seed in the AFC as it stands right now. They of course can improve on that going forward. Below are the 3 playoff spot clinching scenarios and they all 3 include them beating the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. All 3 also include the Cincinnati Bengals losing in week 14 to the Houston Texans. The most likeliest scenario to happen in my opinion is #2. Should that one come to fruition, the Steelers would be 10-3 and the Oakland Raiders, New York Jets and Bengals would all be 7-6. The Steelers would own tie breakers over all 3.

Updated: It seems the Denver Broncos play into two of the scenarios as well and I have added them.

Scenario #1
Steelers beat the Browns, and
Packers beat the Raiders, and
Bears beat the Broncos, and
Chiefs beat the Jets, and
Texans beat the Bengals

Scenario #2
Steelers beat the Browns, and
Packers beat the Raiders, and
Bears beat the Broncos, and
Saints beat the Titans, and
Texans beat the Bengals

Scenario #3
Steelers beat the Browns, and
Chiefs beat the Jets, and
Saints beat the Titans, and
Texans beat the Bengals
