Breakdown of the tiebreaker between NE and CIN

I found this on another site but it really clears up how the tiebreaker shapes up between the bengals and patriots.  Theres still a SLIM chance that both teams could win and the bengals would get the 3 seed

 

NE has beaten teams with a combined record of 65-85. CIN has beaten teams with a combined record of 60-89.

If both teams win next week:

NE will add 8 wins and 8 losses from beating HOU — 73-93.
CIN will add 8 wins and 8 losses from beating NYJ — 68-97.

NE will get 1 win and 1 loss from ATL@TB (beat both teams) — 74-94.
NE will get 1 loss from NYJ losing to CIN — 74-95.

CIN will get 1 win and 1 loss from CHI@DET (beat both teams) — 69-98.

In order of importance, NE needs to root for:

MIA over PIT (1 win for NE, +2 losses for CIN)
JAC over CLE (1 win for NE, 2 losses for CIN)
BUF over IND (2 wins for NE) 
OAK over BAL (1 loss for NE, +2 losses for CIN)
TEN over SEA (1 win for NE)
CAR over NO (1 win for NE)
ARI over GB (1 loss for CIN)
MIN over CHI tomorrow (1 loss for CIN)
DEN over KC (1 loss for CIN)

In order of importance, CIN needs to root for:

PIT over MIA (2 wins for CIN, +1 loss for NE)
CLE over JAC (2 wins for CIN, 1 loss for NE)
IND over BUF (2 losses for NE)
BAL over OAK (2 wins for CIN, +1 win for NE)
GB over ARI (1 win for CIN)
CHI over MIN tomorrow (1 win for CIN)
KC over DEN (1 win for CIN)
SEA over TEN (1 loss for NE)
NO over CAR (1 loss for NE)

definitely favors NE; although if houston wins everything above obviously doesn't matter if cincy beats the jets
