ESPN.com's Playoff Machine

Want to find out where the Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3) and Baltimore Ravens (8-3) could end up in the postseason? Try out ESPN.com's Playoff Machine.

Much will be determined with seedings and matchups in the month of December. But we let you explore all the scenarios now to get you ready for January.

In my opinion, there are two teams the Ravens and Steelers do not want to face. For Baltimore, avoid the Indianapolis Colts (6-5) and Peyton Manning at all cost. I don't care what their record is, it's a bad matchup for the Ravens. For Pittsburgh, Tom Brady and the Patriots have the Steelers' number.
