Assuming you mean that Baltimore wins their next two also, they would all be 10-5 with one to play
(overall, conf, div) San Diego would lose to Cleveland and Indy to be (10-5, 7-4, 4-1 (with KC left)) Denver would beat KC and TN to be (10-5, 7-4, 4-2) Baltimore would beat Indy and Pitt to be (10-5, 7-4, 4-2)
First tie-breaker is to settle the AFC West champ A) HTH; Head to head is even at 1-1 B) Conf winning percentage; SD has a .800 Div winning percentave vs Denver's .666, SD is AFC champ.
Second tie-breaker is Denver vs Baltimore for the last Wildcard, I'm assuming A) HTH; They didn't play each other B) Conf winning percentage; Both teams are 7-4 in the AFC C) Common games (4); Not enough common games (3 vs 3, but Baltimore plays Miami week 17 and there would be 4 common games) D)SoV; Using today's records (and the What if wins/losses) Denver has a SoV of 51-84 (.378) and Baltimore has a SoV of 75-60 (.556)
SD and Baltimore are in, Denver is staying home. For them to get in, they must win one more game then Baltimore to avoid the tie-breakers. Considering Baltimore has Pitt and Indy coming up, they porbably will get one or two up on Baltimore.

They sure do. All you Charger fans should buy Ernie Accorsi a Christmas gift.
I forgot about that, you would think there would be even more incentive to go out and put the best team out there to get wins this year. Who wants the added insult in giving someone else a strong draft back... That was the biggest concern for the Bills when they started 0-4, every Bills fans were screaming we CAN'T be giving away a first pick overall to the Cowboys. Give them credit they sure have put on a nice little run. If you don't know who RB McGahee, you soon will. He's amazing.
smark/net attack wienerville advisory holds at ORANGE alert - High (JBL is STILL WWE champion and now smarks arch enemy HHH is the World Champion. Major red threat, but the undercard seems okay. The alert holds... for now)- 9/19
As a Buckeye, I *really* hope Clarett jumps all over this. Of course, the NFL is going to appeal, which will likely drag this out through the draft. But I don't want Clarett anywhere NEAR the 'Shoe ever again.
