In Response to Re: Pats Chances...Right Now.
[QUOTE]I, like others worry about playogg game #1. At this time it looks like that may be the Steelers. Assume everybody involved wins out, they would get the wildcard #1 and play probably at Denver. Well, I don't see Tebow magic working on the Steelers, so they come to New England, unless the Jets beat probably Baltimore, then we would get them. chances there are slim. I like the Pats chances back in Foxboro against Pittsburgh, but still will be hard-nosed game. Big Ben will probably be limping the rest of the season and this will be a factor. This said, I thin kwe end up with Baltimore in AFCCC game here and again another test. I feel good here if we can limit Ray Rice and make Flacco beat us, then I see that as a "W". Brings us to Super Bowl and rematch from 96 against Packers. Good Luck here as this could be highest scoring SB in history. Last team with the ball wins.

If everyone wins their remaing two games, it would be Pat #1, Balt #2, Hous #3, Denver #4, Pitt #5 and Jets #6. Baltimore beats out Houston for #2 because they beat them in head to head -- the first criterion.
So, if Pitt beats Denver we will play them if Houston beats the Jets. Otherwise we would play the Jets. If Denver wins, we play them unless the Jets beat Houston.
In any event, the Jets don't play Baltimore in the wild card game (assuming both Baltimore and Houston win out).
Also, it may not even be the Jets for #6. If they lose on Saturday and Oakland, Tennessee, San Diego and Cincinatti all win, there will be a four way tie at 8-7, with Cincy at 9-6 (but they have to play Baltimore in the final game).
