The Browns' playoff hopes took a huge hit with last week's 38-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
But despite their disappointing season, the Browns (6-8) are still alive — barely — in the AFC playoff chase.

Here’s what needs to happen for the Browns to reach the postseason for the first time since 2002.
• Browns need to win their final two games vs. Ravens and Bengals
• Steelers need to lose their final two games vs. Jets and Ravens
• Titans need to lose their final two games vs. Saints and Texans
• Colts need to win their final two games vs. Panthers and Jaguars

If all those things happen, the Browns, Steelers, Titans and Colts would all finish 8-8. The Browns would win the four-way tiebreaker for the No. 6 seed because they would have the best conference record.
You can listen to the Browns game Sunday vs. the Ravens on 95.3 and 101.1FM The Eagle.
