I don't know if it's a foregone conclusion. It's not for me.

But if we are going to lose it's more likely that we lose those two.

The importance of our remaining games go in this order:

1. Tennessee Titans - Obvious, win for us; loss for them, head-to-head would be 2-0 us.
2. Indianapolis Colts - Division, conference and common opponent game.
3. Cincinnati Bengals - Conference and common opponent game.
4. Atlanta Falcons - common opponent game (better record than CAR).
5. Carolina Panthers - common opponent game (worse record than ATL).

I'd rather not get into a tie breaking situation, even though we would win. I want to go ahead and win the division because we won more games than them. I would LOVE for us to beat both Indy and Tennessee to finish 6-0 in the division and go to the playoffs!

How about if Monday morning our 2-game lead is reduced to one because we lost to ATL (as expected), the Titans had upset Buffalo, and there are strong indications coming out of Indy that Peyton will be ready to play us on that Thursday night game ? Would that start to make you nervous ?

no, why would it? Two game advantage on the inferior Titans. Peyton won't make an awful team great.

i think tenn losses this week up in Western NY I still think buffalo is a good team esp when playing at home like boomer says they are going to circle the wagons and get a W for there fans at home

so tenn will lose at buffalo and saints and that will pretty much take them out of the race

What? Is this a hypothetical or. . . do you have a link for it at least?

Colts quarterback Peyton Manning planned to undergo scans Wednesday in Indianapolis to see whether the fusion of his neck vertebrae is complete, and doctors then will determine the next step in his rehabilitation.
**
Once Manning's doctors and the Colts' medical staff have reviewed the results of Wednesday's tests, Manning should know whether he can resume throwing and possibly return to the field this season.

Fortunately, with the way this year's team is built, we do not need a QB to carry to the load to win games. I don't think the Titans win out, so we will need to win 2 out of 5. That's doable.

I have no doubt that Kubiak & Co. will game plan to our strengths. We have some really great things to focus on: no. 1 defense, awesome running game, and Andre Johnson and solid offensive weapons.

Yates will need to throw the ball this week. ATL will load the box to stop our run game in order to force the pass. But with the way the offense is designed, there will be guys open to make plays. You cannot double everyone. Double AJ and Foster and Daniels open up. Load the box and they bootleg to get Foster or a WR in the clear.

Yates can do this. I really believe it. He'll just need to avoid costly mistakes, but even then this team has the maturity and belief in itself to overcome adversity.
