12. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-6)
Recap: Down 17-10 late in the fourth quarter in Week 15, the Steelers had three cracks at tying the game up against the Bills, however a pair of Devlin Hodges picks thrown in the end zone thwarted their efforts.
Outlook: With the loss, the Steelers failed to pass the Bills for the No. 5 seed and also put some distance between themselves and the Titans for the final wild card spot. Pittsburgh will head to New York in Week 16 to face the Jets.
11. Tennessee Titans (8-6)
Recap: The Titans shot themselves in the foot on multiple occasions in the first half with a costly interception at the goal line in the first quarter and a missed field goal in the second against the Texans. Tennessee would end up coming back from a 14-0 deficit to tie the game in the second half, but those missed opportunities loomed large in what was ultimately a 24-21 defeat.
Outlook: This was a terrible loss for the Titans, who will now need help the rest of the way in order to make the playoffs. Tennessee will have to win their Week 16 matchup with the Saints and hope for the Texans to lose to setup a Week 17 showdown for the division. Even in the wild card, the Titans need help with losses by the teams in front of them.
