Under that scenario, the Colts, Ravens and Chargers would all be 9-8, and the Dolphins would be either 8-9 or 8-8-1. Miami is already eliminated from the playoffs.

The 11th-seeded Ravens hold the tie-breaker over both the Colts and Chargers–the current No. 6 and No. 7 seeds in the playoffs if the season ended today–after beating those teams in back-to-back games in Weeks 5 and 6.

Las Vegas (9-7) clinches a playoff berth with a win, and in the above scenario, the Ravens would slide into the final slot.
