Right now both the Steelers and Ravens are on the outside of the playoff race looking in. Both are 6-6 and face a tough road to get into the playoffs. Currently the Jags and Broncos hold the 2 AFC Wild Card spots. Jacksonville is 7-5 and the Broncos are 8-4.
Let's take a look at the schedules for the 6 teams with a legit shot at making the playoffs.
NY Jets (6-6)
Looking at these schedules it looks like the Ravens have the easiest road to 10-6 with no game against a team with a winning record. The Jets might be next. They finish up with the Colts and Bengals but by then both those teams will have wrapped up trips to the post-season and will be looking to rest key players. Should be an interesting race to January in the AFC.
