So You’re Saying There’s A Chance!

I think the Colts might have the greatest playoff clinching formula I have ever seen.

Start with the fact that they needed Denver to win last night. (Check)

Then, like most teams in their position,  they need to win next week.

They also need the team ahead of them to lose (Houston)

But here is where it gets nuts. They need to tie the FIFTH tiebreaker with Houston and pass them on the SIXTH tiebreaker. (Strength of victory and Strength of schedule) That means they need seven, yes SEVEN, other things to happen beyond the above.

Those are wins by the following teams- Ravens, Bills, Falcons, Broncos, Dolphins, Steelers, and Raiders. ESPN put the odds at 3,326-to-1.

But at least I know what will keep my attention in Week 17.

    So with the odds at 3326 to 1, if I were to place a $1000 bet on the Colts to make the playoffs and if they were to actually make the playoffs, I could theoretically win $3,326,000, right? I could retire, right?

      Yup. Or, place a $1 bet and enjoy the thought of buying a really nice dinner, or TV, or something else, if you win and not worry about it if you lose.

    Hijack:

    Humor columnist is always good for a laugh . . . a humorous look back at 2015:

    There are sports-related references (especially to Tom Brady) that I am using to justify posting this.

    Happy New Year to all

      No need to ever justify a Dave Barry column to me. 2015 is not a year I will miss at all.
