I wouldn't even base it on how they do against Baltimore, actually.
There's New England and Houston in the top tier.
I've got Baltimore and Denver in the second tier.
Then there's teams like the Bengals and Colts who are the favorites for Wild Card berths. They're tier 3.
I think that's fair. There's been enough reg season to say that, records and "how a team wins" aside, we can tell which teams are in those tiers.
