MLB conducts a coin toss prior to the conclusion of the season. All teams who have the possibility of being the wild card (or the possibility of a tie for division winner) are included and all possible scenarios are covered. The team winning the coin toss hosts a one-game playoff to see which team advances as the wild card, or which team wins the division, if that is the case. If two teams are tied for thhe division lead, and also tied with a team from another division for the wild card, the two teams tied for the division lead will have their tie-breaker game played first. The winner of that game is the division champ, and the loser of that game plays a one game tie-breaker against the team from the other division to determine the wild card.

Under the tiebreaking rules, this scenario cannot occur; however, the Cleveland Browns faced a scenario in 2007 where the result of their own game was meaningless.
