Simple AFC Tiebreaker Chart, 2010, After Week 16

Notes and assumptions:
  1. No possibility of tie games.
  2. Tiebreakers are as they would be at the end of the season, NOT as of right now.
  3. Tiebreakers that don't affect playoff berths or seeding are ignored.
  4. Divisional ties are broken first.
  5. If three or more teams are tied, apply that tiebreaker, not the two-team tiebreaker.
  6. Strength-of-victory is the combined winning percentage of the teams a team has beaten. It has nothing to do with point totals.
  7. The AFC #6 seed will have at least a 10-6 record. (Though the AFC South winner can be as bad as 9-7.)
  8. Locked berths: NE #1.
  9. Clinched divisions: KC.
  10. Clinched berths: BAL, NYJ, PIT.
  11. Eliminated: CIN, BUF, DEN, CLE, HOU, MIA, TEN, OAK.
  12. The complete tiebreaker rules are here.
