2021 AFC tiebreakers after Week 15 (plus TEN-SF, GB-CLE, ARI-IND)

The following charts seek to answer the following question: If these two (or more) teams finish with the same record, who wins the tiebreaker?

Notes and assumptions:

  1. No possibility of future tie games (PIT does not appear in the tables, but may be added for future weeks).
  2. Tiebreaker winners are as they would be if the teams were tied at the end of the season, NOT as if the season ended right now. (Example: the only way MIA and NE wind up with the same record at the end of the season is if MIA beats NE Week 18.)
  3. Tiebreakers that don’t affect playoff berths or seeding are ignored. (Example: any tie at fewer than 8 wins.)
  4. Division ties are broken first. If LAC, DEN, and IND all finish 9-8, break the AFC West tie between LAC and DEN first, then break the tie between the LAC-DEN winner and IND.
  5. If three or more teams are tied, apply that tiebreaker, not the two-team tiebreaker.
  6. Strength of victory is the combined winning percentage (essentially, the number of wins) of the teams a team has beaten. It has nothing to do with point totals.
  7. No one has clinched a playoff spot.
  8. NYJ, JAX, and HOU have been eliminated.

The complete tiebreaker rules are here.
