    I've used that site past two years running. They sure break down A LOT of stats...

    < 1% chance of missing the playoffs

    You know your doing something right when you ONLY have a 1 % chance of going into the play offs as a WC team lol.

    Actually, we have a 101% chance of getting into the playoffs as a wild card team, according to this chart. I suspect we are the victim of a rounding error.

    61% chance of getting a bye seems generous. I'd be thrilled if it happened but with the tough schedule coming up, and Denver's creampuff schedule, I'd say a 3 or 4 seed is more likely.

    Been a while since I looked at the standings

    A Steelers loss this weekend and a likely win for Cincy at SD would get Bengals the 6th seed

    I'll be looking at this interesting website again next week

    Ummm...Cincy beat Oakland last week? They play SD this week.

    In any case, a win this week combined with a Steelers loss certainly puts them in the driver seat, but still a fair amount of football left to play. They would each be 1-3 in the division, and still play HTH one more time.

    I've used the sight the past several years. I really think it's a great resource. It's a nice, unbiased reference point to compare your perceptions too, but obviously statistics can't tell you everything.

    As far as the 61%, it may be slightly generous, but it's probably a more realistic number than you think.
    - We have a 1-game lead over the patriots and head-to-head, so they'd need to gain 2 games on us to overtake us
    - We have a 1-game lead over the Broncos, plus a home game coming up against them. That's probably the single most important game left in our season. If we win it there's a great chance we get a 1st round bye. (I believe someone else has already made this point in another thread as well)

    The BIG game will vs Denver in Baltimore, that winner will likely decide the #2 seed. I doubt Houston loses 2 and we run the table, unlikely but possible/too bad they got that refs blown call on Thanksgiving.
