Now if you study the chart below carefully, you’ll see several different scenarios that could play out during this weekend’s AFC playoff games. Let’s break this down so it all becomes easier to understand.

Let’s say Jacksonville, Miami, and Cleveland all win but the Chiefs and Ravens lose, that means the Jags are in but the Dolphins and Browns are out but it’s hard to explain why in a short blog so you won’t get that insight here and, besides, it won’t be helpful. As an aside, if this plays out the Buccaneers will get in even though they’re in the NFC and don’t even appear on this chart.

But if the Dolphins lose and the Bucs and Saints tie in their games, the Ravens and Chiefs will still get in based on a tie-breaker situation with the Browns dating back to games played in September that at the time seemed meaningless but are now of supreme importance.

Now what about the Steelers, you’re wondering? They automatically get in if someone on their team impersonates Franco Harris doing the Immaculate Reception, but if that doesn’t happen they’ll need to wait and see what happens in the Cowboys and Eagles games, which aren’t relevant to this discussion but that’s not the point.

As for the AFC Wildcard Weekend matchups, look at the chart and you’ll see the Bills have a chance to get in but a lot of that depends on whether Miles Garrett of the Browns gets two or more quarterback sacks and if he eats Wheaties for breakfast on game day.

Going the extra mile for you my readers, I checked my analysis for accuracy by posting this chart in the prompt and asked Chatty G to explain these scenarios because this chart has a lot of colors and Excel boxes to stew over and I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

Chatty G’s response: The Immaculate Reception was a miraculous play that can never be re-enacted. It was a one-off. As for Miles Garett’s two sacks, I think he’ll need at least three. He won’t eat Wheaties but rather waffles and bacon so the Browns will be out.

Hope this clears things up.
