    I do not worry about Baltimore.

    Baltimore can make it a defensive battle, hopefully we're seeing a team that can handle that.

    Themselves is best answer, as I see a few listed above. If their defense keeps getting better every week like they have been, and their offense keeps moving forward, then they have a chance to go deep into playoffs.

    That is precisely the point of the overhaul BB pulled on this "D".

    All these AH triple-teamed = Andre Carter or Mark Anderson sack threads are telling this story.

    Ravens.  That defense is scary!  And Flacco is improving.

    The only way we lose in the playoffs is if one of the best offense's ever assembled lays its 4rth egg in a row. I don't think that will happen again and we will win the big one.....its gonna be so sweet.

    Think the Pats are the only team who can beat the Pats.  Baltimore's D has been playing excellent football but their O has been average at best and I think i'm giving them a little too much credit.

    They also have age at certain key roles, once it starts getting cold those guys won't be the same player and move as well as they are.  Just part of getting older, world class athlete or not.

    The Ravens. The Pats D has stop or contain Rice since much of there offense flows through him. Offense has to score against arguably the stingiest defense in the league.

    The Pats team has more vets ,more experience, and Brady and BB will pi--ed off about not winning a playoff game in awhile.

    the ravens or chargers. the patriots can beat both of these teams if they have a balanced offense like in the raiders game. if they use the same game plan as last years playoff loss or the bills game (spread/shotgun no running game) they will be out in the first round.

    the defense wont be the problem, they are improving each week and will be playing their best by the playoffs. lets hope that obrien figures it out by then.

    I see Baltimore as the biggest obstacle simply because it is the team most likely to have home-field advantage over the Pats.

    The only other team that looks like trouble to me is San Dago, but if they have to come into Foxboro in January, that's a problem for them.

    Not sold on Houston.

    Everything else in the conference is blah.

    Yet another voice for the Ravens to be the Pats biggest challenger. Their D, including pass rush, is a tough unit to overcome. Their offense may not be clicking liek the Pats or GB but they are good and likely to be even better in crunch time if they remain healthy.

    As others have said, the Pats themselves could be considered their own worst enemy when it comes to the playoffs since their last SB appearance. But while the Pats might shoot themsleves in the foot it will still take a strong effort by the Ravens or anyone else to beat them. In other words while mistakes by the Pats could be one cause for a playoff loss the opponent will have to have played a superior game and so will not be able to be discounted.

    I do NOT by into the Bills. THeir D is just not good enough and I think that will show up more in the last 4 or 5 games of the year and into the playoffs if they make it.

    At this point I have to favor the Pats over any one other AFC team.
