Anything is possible regarding the NFL playoff picture over the final two weeks of the 2019 season, so the Texans can't feel comfortable, and the Titans can't afford to pack it in. Say the Texans go 0-2: If the Titans do win out, that would be the only way for them to win the division.
Steelers and Titans still have identical records. The Steelers have the tiebreaker for now with a better conference record, 6-4 vs. 6-5. That situation wouldn't change if both teams finish 2-0.
Say the Titans win out and the Steelers go 1-1: The Titans are then 10-6, the Steelers are 9-7, and Tennessee is the playoffs.
Say the Titans go 1-1, beating the Saints but losing to the Texans, and the Steelers go 1-1, losing to either the Jets in Week 16 or the Ravens in Week 17: The Steelers also get in with a better conference record in that scenario.
Say the Titans go 1-1, losing to the Saints but beating the Texans, and the Steelers go 1-1. Both teams would be 9-7 overall and 7-5 in conference play. The tiebreaker would come down to strength of victory, which tilts toward Tennessee.
The Colts can still win the division, but they must win out. Essentially the Texans and Titans would BOTH need to finish at 9-7, which means one very important thing: they both need to lose in Week 16. The Texans must lose in the Week 17 rematch. These aren’t impossible scenarios. So in short, if all three teams finish at 9-7, the Colts would have the tiebreaker over them. The Colts would have the tiebreaker since they would have “the best record in common games”.
The Browns must win their final two games. The Titans and Steelers each must lose their final two games to finish 8-8. Also, the Colts must lose at least one of their final three to finish no better than 8-8. According to the NFL tiebreaking procedures, a tie among three or more teams for a Wild Card spot first deals with divisional tiebreakers to reduce the number of teams. If Browns, Titans, Steelers, Colts, Raiders tie -- Browns win (based on best conference record).
The Oakland Raiders (6-8 ) lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but their chances of making the playoffs remained less than 1 percent. Even if the Raiders won out while both the Steelers and Titans lost out, that wouldn't necessarily guarantee a playoff berth for Oakland, as both the Colts and Browns currently sit ahead of the Raiders in the AFC playoff hunt. Ultimately, in order to qualify for the postseason, the Raiders are going to have to handle their own business and get a lot of help from other results.
