Playoff Scenario Catch-All Thread: Week 16

I've already had to delete like five separate fanposts about different playoff scenarios because they were incorrect.

So - from this point on - all playoff scenario talk will be posted in here. If you make a fanpost about it from this point on, I'll have to delete it. We can't have a million fanposts all about the same topic.

Also - as we figure out ACTUAL legit ways that the Dolphins can get in, I'll update the body of this post to highlight them.

**Note: Please "rec" this so it moves to the top for the entire week.**

SCENARIO #1
--Dolphins win last two games.
--Patriots lose last two games (vJac, @Hou).

SCENARIO #2
--Dolphins win last two games.
--Jaguars lose one of last two games (@NE, @Cle).
--Broncos lose to Chiefs in week 17.
--If Denver's only loss these next two weeks is in week 16 to Philly, the tie-breaker would go to "strength of victory" - which currently favors the Broncos (.5179 to .4388).

SCENARIO #3
--Dolphins win last two games.
--Jaguars lose one of last two games (@NE, @Cle).
--Ravens lose in week 16 to Steelers (Note - if Ravens beat Steelers but lose in week 17, Ravens win tie-breaker with Miami thanks to a 3-2 record in "common opponent" games; Dolphins only 2-3 in those games).
--Dolphins hold their lead in "strength of victory" over Ravens (currently .4388 to .375).

SCENARIO #4
--Dolphins win last two games.
--Jaguars lose one of last two games (@NE, @Cle).
--Ravens lose both of their remaining games (@Pit, @Oak).
--Titans lose one of last two games (vSD, @Sea) - otherwise Dolphins would lose out on tie-breaker to Titans due to Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

SCENARIO #5
--Dolphins win last two games.
--Jaguars lose one of last two games (@NE, @Cle).
--Bengals lose both of their remaining two games (vKC, @NYJ).
--Ravens win both of their remaining games (@Pit, @Oak).
