Winning our remaining games while playing the spoiler is not "success"?
Absolutely not. In fact, if we beat everyone we don't spoil anything. If we beat NE, Denver, and Indy then all the home field advantage etc remains the same, just one game lower. And Oakland and Jacksonville aren't playoff contenders anyway. The only way we can spoil their season is to lose to them and steal their draft position.
