The Steelers better hope that Mike Tomlin‘s Thanksgiving antics didn’t earn them any bad karma because it will take a miracle for Pittsburgh to slip into the playoffs.
At 6-8, Pittsburgh obviously needs to win out in its final two contests against Green Bay and Cleveland.
After that, Miami has to lose its final two games to finish at 8-8, and the Ravens have to also fold and slump to 8-8. The Chargers must lose at least one of their final games.
That’s not all, however, as the Steelers would lose the tiebreaker with Miami. In order for the Steelers to be able to win the tiebreaker, the Jets must win out to finish 8-8 to knock Miami back into the third spot in the division and out of the wild card.
