    3-way AFC Tie

    What happens if there's a 3-way tie atop the AFC after the season?  It is possible that the Pats, Broncos, and Texans could all finish 13-3 (if Pats and Broncos win out and Houston drops another game).  The head-to-head tiebreakers go out the window, so what does the seeding end up being?  Does anyone know?  Has anyone tried to figure this out?

    If the game Texans lose is to the Colts, then the Pats get the #1 seed because of conference record.  If the game they lose is to the Vikings, then I think Denver is eliminated because of conference record and then the Pats win because of head to head against Houston -- but I am not sure.

    I was wrong.  It would be the Pats regardless because the Pats would have beaten both other clubs.  It doesn't matter that the Texans and Broncos didn't play each other because if they had, the best that one of them could have had was 1-1 vs the Pats 2-0 in head to head competition.

    We're the number 1 seed if we win out and Houston loses one. We own the tie breaker against both teams and we've only lost 1 game to an AFC opponent (Ravens) while the other two came from NFC teams (Cards and Hawks). 

    Houston has only lost 1, too, but to us, so we're in the driver's seat. Denver lost two to the AFC (Us and the Texans). 

    If the season ended today with the records tied, Pats would be the number 1 seed with Houston the number 2. Denver 3 and Ravens four, with a chance of hosting the Ravens in the AFCDR.

    Re: 3-way AFC Tie

    Head-to-head is still the first tie breaker if one team has beaten both other teams.  If the tie is between the Pats, Texans, and Broncos, the Pats swept the other 2 teams.  Texans would get the 2 seed because they beat the Broncos in Week 3.  If the Ravens are one of the other teams, no team would have a head-to-head sweep, so it would come down to best conference record; Ravens would be eliminated, then the tie-breaking procedures would start over for the remaining 2 teams, and the Pats would again have the advantage based on head-to-head.

    3-way tie breaker rules:

    1. Apply division tie breaker to eliminate all but the highest ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2. The original seeding within a division upon application of the division tie breaker remains the same for all subsequent applications of the procedure that are necessary to identify the two Wild-Card participants. (doesn't apply because all 3 teams would be from different divisions)
    2. Head-to-head sweep. (Applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
    5. Strength of victory.
    6. Strength of schedule.
    7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    9. Best net points in conference games.
    10. Best net points in all games.
    11. Best net touchdowns in all games.
    12. Coin toss

    3 way tie goes to Conference record...right now Pats are best at 10-1 against AFC so they would get 1 seed....

    I believe if the 3 teams finish 13-3, Pats would get the #1 seed because the Pats already beat them in head-to-head matchups.

    We have only 1 loss in the conference. In a three way head to head is below conference record in tiebreakers.

    It's certainly strange to think that your team could go 13-3 and not get a bye, but that could very well happen this year.

    Are you referring to the Broncos? If the Pats go 13-3 they get a bye no matter what.

    I think the broncos win out which means we have to in out as well.   The texans may still drop 1   I think we drop one as well and get the #2 seed

    The Broncos bye will come after they lose their first playoff game.

    Texans will lose all 3 is my prediction.

    5 of their wins are against three of the worst teams in the NFL.

    They have been lucky in comeback wins in 3 of the previous 4 including the Jags.

    IMHO Luck will torch them and Adrian will run all around them.

    Unlike the experts I do not believe they are as good as many think.
