Oh, then in that case.

They either would play the 3, 4, or 5 seed. As of now that means either the Jets, Broncos, or Ratbirds.

incorrect.




Baltimore is the 6th seed. . they'll go to the winner of the AFC East. Indy will play Denver probably. . .


which means Baltimore at Tenn and we'll host Indy, most likely.

it's probably better too be 2 seed lol.

titans have a good chance to end up with the ravens or colts

That's one silver lining I can see out of this loss.
