Here's a Playoffs Scenario Generator. You can choose different ways to value teams from the dropdown menu in lower right corner. It's limited in choices, but fun to play around with...

Default Re: 2012 Playoff Picture

hopefully we get the number 1 seed that way we might take on a WC team in the div round if one makes it like the bengles or colts

wouldnt that be crazy if we played the colts in the Div round a AFC South showdown

Default Re: 2012 Playoff Picture

messin around with it Very High chance we play San deigo in the div round

even higher chance we will see NE in either the Div round or AFC Champ game either way i think we will see NE

best case is if Miami ballz out and we see them in the div round also if denver balls out we will be seeing Denver in the AFC champ game


hopefully everything will be at home tho Crosses fingers

isnt it kinda funny tho

Miami
Denver
Ravens

3 teams we might see again we blew all of them out ..???? they will be harder next time around if we play them again

Where are you getting this information? I find it interesting. Is it based on Vegas odds-makers take on things, or is it computer generated? Just curious.

Computer-generated. Mostly based on W-L and tiebreakers, but SOS is also a factor as well.
