View Full Version : Here's Exactly What We're Rooting For...

I was ready to give up on the season, but the Packers win really has me pumped. Here's what we need to make the playoffs...

If the Colts, Patriots, Eagles and Steelers win, we head into the final week of the season controlling our own destiny....

Week 16
Steelers to beat Ravens
Colts to beat Jets
Patriots to beat Jaguars
Eagles to beat Broncos

If any of those teams do win, here's what we need...

Week 17
Steelers to beat Miami
Browns to beat Jaguars (if the Pats don't beat them week 16)
Chiefs to beat Broncos (if the Eagles don't beat them week 16)
Bengals to beat the Jets (if the Colts don't beat them week 16)

That scenario would put us as the #6 seed, with the Ravens #5.

Well, I'm always hopeful for the playoffs, but if we don't do something about our defense, we'll be the sacrificial lamb to some lucky team. Of course, we may have Troy back and that can't be anything but positive.

I may be wrong, but don't we already control our own destiny against Houston via AFC record tiebreaker? It shouldn't matter thought because they will lose to either Miami or NE anyways.

I keep thinking positively though. I really think if we win out we make the playoffs some how some way!

If Troy comes back, I think we'll be fine... if not...

We could be in for a 45-44 game against the Patriots or Bengals in the first round... I think we win either of those games though. :tt:
