  6. I think the Colts, Texans, and Titans will all end up with a record of 8-8 and require tie-breaker rules.

    Tie-breaker rules:
    1) Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
    2) Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
    3) Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
    4) Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    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 common games.
    10) Best net points in all games.
    11) Best net touchdowns in all games.
    12) Coin toss.

    Titans will be eliminated because their head-to-head record is 0-2 vs. Colts. Plus, their division record is worst than the Colts and Texans.

    For the Colts and Texans, depending on how the rest of their games go, I think it could come down to tie-breaker rule #5.

    1) Head-to-head will be 1-1 if Colts beat Texans in week 14.
    2) If Colts beat Texans in week 14 and Jacguars in week 17, and Texans beat Jaguars in week 15 and lose to Titans in week 17, then both their division records will be 4-2.
    3) Common game records (not including divisional games): Texans are 3-5 and Colts are 3-3 with games vs. Vikings and Raiders left. If Colts lose both those games, then they will be 3-5 as well.
    4) Record in conference games (not including divisional games): Texans are 1-4 and if they beat the Bengals in week 16 then they'll be 2-4. Colts are 1-3 and if they beat the Jets in week 13 and lose to the Raiders in week 16 then they'll also be 2-4.
    5) Strength of victory. Right now the Colts have the edge but this will depend on how the other teams end up after week 17.
