    How the heck are the #Steelers still eligible to make the playoffs at 6-8 with a loss to Miami? Here's how.

    The NFL tiebreaking system is indeed difficult at times to understand. That is why some people, even in my business, thought a Miami win would eliminate the Steelers. After all, the Dolphins beat the Steelers to have that first tiebreaker between the two if they both finish 8-8. However, if the Dolphins and Jets both tie at 8-8, the rules say you break the tie within the division first when 3 or more teams are tied. That tiebreaker would go to the Jets. Over in the AFC North, if Baltimore finishes 8-8 as well, they would break the tie with the supposed 8-8 Steelers first. That tiebreaker would go to the Steelers based on a better record among common opponents.

    That would leave them to break the Jets-Steelers tie and that would go to the Steelers -- based on their win against the Jets.

    Got that? I do not blame you if you do not.
