    Great stuff. Interesting picture.

    I can't get my head around counting the Saints out this early in the season.

    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

    Who made the Yahoo team ranker? Using that the AFC seeds are 1)Bills 2)Bengals 3)Colts 4)Denver 5)Browns 6)Dolphins

    WTF?

    And why does it start in Week 13?

    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.

    Hardest remaining schedule in the conference. I guess that might tie up a first round bye.
