    Can Cincinnati clinch a playoff spot this weekend?



    If the Bengals win and the Jets lose, would the Bengals have a playoff spot locked up this weekend?

    this is a pretty good playoff machine: http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/machine

    They can get the six spot only at this point. Here are the scenarios:

    Case 1
    Bengals beat the Cardinals, and
    Bengals beat the Ravens, and
    Giants beat the Jets


    Case 2
    Bengals beat the Cardinals, and
    Bengals beat the Ravens, and
    Dolphins beat the Jets


    Case 3
    Bengals beat the Ravens, and
    Bills beat the Broncos, and
    Dolphins beat the Jets, and
    Chiefs beat the Broncos


    Case 4
    Bengals beat the Ravens, and
    Chiefs beat the Raiders, and
    Lions beat the Chargers, and
    Dolphins beat the Jets


    Case 5
    Bengals beat the Ravens, and
    Chiefs beat the Raiders, and
    Dolphins beat the Jets, and
    Raiders beat the Chargers


    Case 6
    Bengals beat the Ravens, and
    Lions beat the Chargers, and
    Dolphins beat the Jets, and
    Chargers beat the Raiders

    Thanks for the detail. To put it simply, the Bengals can neither clinch nor be eliminated this weekend. The game against the Ravens will be treated as a win and in scenario for them, since the Jets are playing at the same time, and the Bengals won't be able to know their fate before taking the field.

    From what it is showing me, the Bengals would take over the sixth seed with a win Saturday and a Jets loss, but will not clinch it.

    It seems that, to make a long story short, the Bengals would only get the sixth seed if they finish with a better overall record than the Jets.

    That seems to be the case.

    The Jets hold a fairly large Strength of Victory lead over Cincy...so yeah, in most scenarios, a tie goes to New York.

    The only way this doesn't happen is if:

    Jets beat the Giants, but lose to Miami
    Bengals lose to Cardinals, but beat Baltimore

    In that case, they'd both be 9-7, but the Bengals would have a 7-5 conference record, vs the Jets 6-6, and Cincy would get the #6 seed.

    So, it's not the Bengals who can clinch the sixth spot Saturday, but the Jets. If the Jets defeat the Giants and the Cardinals defeat the Bengals, the Jets will lock up the sixth seed. The only other team that would stand a legitimate chance of getting the sixth seed would be Oakland. If Oakland and New York finish with the same record, Oakland would get the sixth seed, because they defeated New York. Even if San Diego is brought into the equation for a three way tie, the Chargers have lost to the Raiders and the Jets.

    No, even if Cincy loses they are not eliminated. The 6th seed will go down to the last game.

    If I'm incorrect on that please let me know

    No one can clinch the #6 seed this weekend. Not the Jets or Cincy (both 8-6), and certainly not all the teams who are currently 7-7.

    No matter what happens this weekend, we will need, at minimum, the results of week 17's early games to determine the #6 seed.

    I have it now. Thank you for your help. I put in the information to the Espn thing improperly.

    Is there any way that Cincinnati can clinch a playoff spot, without defeating Baltimore?
