    Would have been nice if the Bungals and Rats stayed at 1:00. If the Jets lose, the Bungals don’t need to win to get in.

    Actually if the Raiders game stays at 4:15 on Sunday and the Raiders win and the Broncos win the Bengals would lose their 6th Seed if they lost due to the Raiders having a better Conference record.

    Not true. If Jets and Bungles both lose Raiders can get in.

    Bengals would need the Jets to lose (1:00 game) and either the Raiders or Broncos to lose (both 4:00)
