Our best shot at a #1 or #2 seed would be for us to win out (obviously) and for the Texans and Ravens both losing one more. The Patriots we have in a head to head tiebreaker and if we both finish 13-3 with that scenario, we get the AFC's first seed with the Pats locking the second. It can still be done. Not losing hope.

Here's how we will get #1 seed. Next week, Brady will throw 3 INT's and the Broncos will win 17-14 on the last play of the game. Philip Rivers will throw for over 300 yards and beat up the Ravens 24-17. The last game of the season, The Texans get surprised at home against The Titans who will beat them 28-24 and somehow sneak into the playoffs (causing a rematch the following week with the same 2 teams). The Steelers will win every game in the last quarter and there will be many heart attacks in Pittsburgh before it is all over.

The Ravens are so healthy right now! Its pointless to root for injuries in their games. Sucky teams absolutely lay down vs them. Either way the AFC playoff picture looks fun to watch. After watching 20 minutes of ESPN its obvious the Packers are the greatest team to ever play the game and Rodgers is the greatest quarterback to ever throw a ball.

Im betting and hoping the chargers will beat the ravens sunday night, chargers aren;t out of the picture yet (broncos winning really hurt them tho) so hopefully they will play that much harder.

I can see the texans losing to the titans...hope it all works out

now that the Texans have the division out of the way I'm sure they are refocused knowing what is on the line

not saying one thing will happen over the other - just actually think that if Ravens get the #1 seed, they have the best shot at being SB bound (duh right?) They just aren't beatable at home this year and M&T will be electric if they have home field

Then, they'll get absolutely demolished in the SB lol

sorry for being negative - I just want to see our team thrive and send some guys off in style. Don't want to see some players careers end in heartbreak

Actually it makes them the 3 seed unless Denver finishes ahead of them! Then they are 4th!

I think the Ravens have another loss in them but so do the Steelers

Since I expect Houston (courtesy of the Bengals choke on Sunday) and New England to wind up 13-3 it appears the Steelers will not get a bye even with a 13-3 record

If the Steelers are going on the road anyhow look for a lot of starters sitting on New Years Day at Cleveland as the de facto bye week

I'm utterly baffled that the Texans are set up to go 13-3. Admittedly they do have an above average defense, an above average offensive line, and above average running backs, but T.J. Yates? Is he actually as good as it seems, or does he have a loss in him? I certainly hope so.

He was good enough to drive the field on the Bengals in the last 2 minutes and probably good enough to beat the Panthers, Colts, and Titans.

If somehow the Steelers would get the second round in Houston and avoid having to play both Baltimore and New England that would be sweet

I'm still holding out hope for Ravens and Texans losses and the Steelers running the table, which would secure the top seed.
