In response to dapats1281's comment:
pats have to beat the texans if they want the bye.
Baltimore would have to have an extra loss than the pats since they own the tiebreaker over us.
I was hoping for at least two losses between the gmen and steelers, but with big ben potentially out, that may not happen.
For the other bye, pats would have to beat the texans, and then tie them recordwise
If CHI beat the Texans, then it wouldnt have been inconceivable for the Pats to steal a bye from the Texans.
Hou's schedule is relatively easy from here on out though
After the win over the Bears, it will take a lot for anyone to catch the Texans in the AFC. I am still concerned with how easy the Broncos remaining schedule is as well.
However, if they beat the Ravens in week 15 it would come a three way tie between the Broncos, Pats and Ravens even if everyone wins the rest of their games. In that scenario, the Patriots would actually fall into the number 2 seed with the best conference record (the Broncos already have two AFC losses, and if they beat the Ravens that would give Baltimore two as well).
That is a big if though. Looking at the schedules. The Broncos are most likely to run the table at this point. One more loss by the Patriots could leave them with the four seed.
Thank goodness, that the rest of the AFC East is junk. There is no way, the do not win the division at this point.
"One more loss by the Patriots could leave them with the four seed."
id love to win the rest of the year.
seeing our team all year , does that look like a likelihood
