One route to the playoffs for the Pittsburgh Steelers is to be on the standings in the last two games. And some prayers.

The only way for the Steelers to qualify for the postseason for the second straight year is to beat the Cleveland Browns on Monday night and Baltimore in the 18th the 9-7 Indianapolis Colts.

Oh, and the game between the Los Angeles Chargers (9-7) and the Las Vegas Raiders (9-7) next weekend can’t end in a draw.

In this scenario, the Steelers would seed the Colts as number 7 and advance to the playoffs with a 9-7-1 record.

Five teams have fought for the playoff spots in the AFC, with two among the Chargers, Raiders, Colts, Steelers and Ravens to be won.

The Colts (9: 7) had their winning streak of three games on Sunday with a 23:20 loss to the Raiders. The Colts and Jaguars played in Indianapolis on November 14th, with the Colts claiming a 23-17 victory. Jacksonville has lost eight in a row and was throttled 50-10 by New England on Sunday.

The AFC North’s second straight win was removed from the equation when the Cincinnati Bengals snapped the Kansas City Chiefs’ eight-game winning streak with a 34-31 win on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.

This win secured the division title for the Bengals, who have a 10-6 record. It is their first AFC North championship since 2015.

The Steelers have a 7-7-1 record ahead of their home final against 7-8 Cleveland on Monday night. They end the season 8-8 Baltimore, which has lost five straight.
