For those who aren't keeping up with this sort of thing, Miami currently holds the #7 seed over the Ravens due to conference record. We're both 8-5, so we just have to have the same or a better record than Baltimore. However, the Ravens SHOULD go 3-0 with their fairly easy remaining schedule, which means we need to go 3-0 as well. Other good news, there's really nobody besides the Ravens to worry about- it's them or us for that #7 spot. The Pats have to win out to overtake us for #2 in the East and have any shot at the playoffs, while the Raiders have self-destructed and aren't in the picture anymore. Of course, for us these are both must-win games regardless. Looking ahead in the seeding, there aren't too many teams that can drop to help us out. The Browns, Titans and Colts are one game ahead, and of course one of them will win the division out of Tenn/Indy. If one of them self-destructed down the stretch, there's a chance us and the Ravens make the playoffs. It's not likely though. Would be great to see the Browns lose to the Jets or Giants and the Colts to lose to the Jags or Texans. Then they each have a game against the Steelers which could also be a L. But again, this would require one of them to lose two out of three while we go 2-1 or better. Which brings us back to our 1st scenario- win three and we're in. Win two and we're probably out, unless the Ravens lose once OR the Browns, Titans or Colts lose twice. One more scenario which could actually become a possibility- if any team gets COVID these next three Sundays and can't play in a meaningful game with playoff implications, then the fields expand to 8 teams automatically. That means we're in at #8 as long as we beat the Pats....a 9-7 record should lock us in for that. So today's game is definitely the most important of the three.
