Then the Chargers will need the Dolphins to lose two more games as well. There’s a good chance they’ll lose Sunday to the Patriots, who are now fighting for home-field advantage in the playoffs, but they should win their final two games against the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.

To sum it up, here’s the ranking of teams the Bengals are likeliest to host in the Wild Card round if they win the AFC North:

1. Dolphins

2. Ravens

3. Chargers

4. Steelers (Bengals can eliminate Steelers from playoff contention with win Sunday night)

The Chargers looked to have no shot at making the playoffs before last night, and while their chances are still slim, there’s at least a realistic shot they make it to the postseason. While they have the least-likeliest chance between themselves, the Ravens and Dolphins, they look like the most dangerous of those three teams.
