since this is nearly a foregone conclusion, i'd much rather it be the jets than patriots getting the bye and all remaining games at home.
steelers just need to beat the ravens and jets. but then again, i said the past games vs the ravens and patriots were important for homefield.
I kind of agree with you here. I think we may want the Jets to win this since we can still hand the Jets a loss by ourselves. I think at the end of the day, if we can beat the Jets and Ravens we may be in line for a bye. Having the Jets and NE finish in a tie, could likely give the Jets the divsion and put the Pats on the road throughout the playoffs. In this scenario, we would hold a head to head tie breaker on the Jets and not the Pats, so the Jets winning the division could be a good thing.
