So what people are saying, if the Ravens & us win out, but Pats lose one game, we are #1. But in that same scenario, if Pats win out as well, we become the #3 seed?

Something doesn't sound right. I'm not saying its wrong, but just doesn't sound right.
I beleive we would hold a better conference record then the ravens. Conference is the first tie breaker. Therefore making us #1 if the patriots lose and us and the Ravens win out. If the patriots win out and the ravens lose one then I beleive we would hold the #2 seed. Any one care to verify this?

You're right on the money here. If the Patriots lose and the Ravens win out then it creates a 3 way tie so there is no head to head. The only way the Ravens stay ahead of us is if the Patriots win out and they win out since they beat us earlier in the year. If the Patriots, Ravens and us finish with the same record then we'll get in as the number 1 seed with only 2 conference losses. Each of the other 2 teams would have 3.

The Ravens have head to head over the Texans, so if it's just between us and them, they get it because of head to head. So the Texans need the Pats to lose to make it a 3 way so the head to head doesn't apply. Tie break in a NE, BAL, HOU 3 way tie goes to the Texans because of conference record.

Default Re: Number one seed is still possible

Simple solution, Patriots need to lose ONE of the next two and we get one seed

OR

Ravens lose one of the next two (Patriots win out) and we get 2 seed


This is assuming we win BOTH our games

We get 2nd seed.

NE should be in, but BAL could have problems at Cinci ?
Re our games, I expect a maximum effort from the Texans Thursday night in Indy, but it ain't gonna be easy. Indy has new life after winning this past weekend and you know they remember that azz-thumping we gave them in the season-opener in Reliant.

i can see Patriots losing this week to Miami. The Dolphins have a good defense and their offense is clicking not to mention the Patriots lost their best player (and their defense sucked as it was).....I think Miami shocks the world here....

Hope you're right. But Miami shocked the hell out of them with the wildcat a few years back. Obi Wan Belichick doesn't like to be made a fool of. I think the Pats beat them, at home.

I think Miami wins @ NE this week because the Pats defense is atrocious. Miami has the weapons to score enough points to beat them.

They have had a number of ass whoopins this year. Why would one in Houston stand out above all others?

Simple. We are the one team that really stomped their azz that they get a chance to find redemption with. NOLA and ATL for example beat them as bad, worse than we did but there's no repeat games with them in 2011. Plus we took their division title away from them. And it's also a nationally televised game - in their house. This will be a real test for the Texans.

I agree, I think our best chance is the 2nd seed. Hopefully Cincy is in a must-win situation in the last game to make playoffs. Baltimore seems like a whole other team when they're on the road.

If we lose to a 1 win team quarterbacked by Orlovsky, regardless of circumstances, seeding won't matter any more

That's going to be tough since the Pats' last two games are at home.

And I still don't see how we leapfrog the Pats. I thought they had us on Strength of Victory...??

Conference record comes before SoV, and if they lose a game in week 16 or 17, ours is better (assuming we go 2-0).

Add in the fact that we have NEVER won there.

Home field advantage won't be that great for this game. I think Indy is relieved they did win a game and I don't think they want to miss out on the Suck for Luck sweepstakes by winning another game.

Gosh, the more I look at the standings, the more I think a 1st round bye is attainable.

We clearly need to win our remaining two games, which we should. Not guaranteed, but we SHOULD win these.

A NE loss or BAL loss and we've got a 1st round bye.

No, no, no. We don't want the Patriots to lose both games. One loss alone gives the Texans the #1 seed. If somehow the Patriots lose twice, Baltimore would take the #1 seed based on head-2-head with Houston, assuming both Htown & Baltimore wins out of course.
