“It certainly wasn’t expected, I’ll be honest with you,” says Darlene Sciulli from South Park.

The Steelers need to win, for the Jaguars to win and the Chargers and Raiders not to draw.

“It’s an and-so. What we’re going to do is multiply the probability that Steelman wins, times the probability that the Jaguar wins – so you have those, right? — and then we need to do something so the Chargers-Raiders game doesn’t end in a tie,” said University of Pittsburgh professor Jeffrey Wheel of determining the probability for the Steelers to make it to the knockout stages.

According to ESPN, the Steelers have a 43.5% chance of winning. The jaguar has a 21.1% chance. Raiders and Chargers have less than 1% chance of a tie.

“If there were 10,000 parallel universes in the same circumstances and that game was played 10,000 times, then in just those three universes we would have had the expected results,” Professor Wheeler said of the Steel Man probability. victory, the Jaguars win and bind the Raiders and Chargers.

The math is split into about a 0.36% chance of happening before Sunday Night’s game.

Hermitage’s Tammy Angeletti said: “There was a bit of hair after 11 hours late in the game, but it worked great.

Steelers fans are hoping for a playoff.
