    We know what our team has been doing, so lets talk about the other squads. Change the subject if you please throughout the thread, as match-ups, seeding and the like may change. That's why the thread is here.

    I gotta say this: The Ravens BETTER win out. Everyone here basically knows, with STL and CLE left, the Steelers are shoe-ins to win out. If the Ravens slip up in Cincy, they'll have the 5th seed. As it stands right now, 5th seed plays Denver.

    I don't know about you guys, but I think that's dangerous. Sure the Ravens are a good run D, but they can't score on the road. They play Denver, and have to deal with a 10-6 game with the ball in Tim Tebow's hands with 2 mins left. Don't like that match-up for them.

    I might be alone in this, but the Ravens away from M&T = shaky. God forbid they end up seeing SD again. Win that division, Baltimore.

    I hope the Bengals win the final spot. Their defense is tough, but I like our chances. I don't want to see any "Sanchez Magic" in the play-offs.

    I'd much rather go to Pittsburgh & play them than to play the Ravens in Baltimore.

    This thing is pretty cool to play with http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/machine

    You just click on the teams that would win and then you see who goes where.

    The Titans actually have a pretty strong chance. If they beat us, the Bengals lose to the Ravens, and the Jets beat the Dolphins they are in.

    If we beat the Titans and the rest of the above plays out we get the Jets.

    Of course the Bengals get in with a win, or a loss and both the Titans and Jets losing.

    I think the Jets are screwed. They basically have to hope the Texans play a full game. I gotta say, I doubt it happens.

    I think it will be the Titans we face in the wildcard round.

    Well, after the Bengals laid down to let the Jets in, we should lay down to keep them out. LOL

    According to the chart above, there's a;

    68.7% chance of Texans vs. Bengals
    12.5% chance of Texans vs. Titans
    9.3% chance of Texans vs. Jets
    9.3% chance of Texans vs. Raiders

    I think it would be perfect.

    I don't really want to see the Bengals defense again.

    I don't really want to see the Titans in the play-offs again........ EVER!!

    I want to see what happens in New York if the Jets don't make it.

    We're all talking about our chances of actually winning our first play-off game.

    do you think any of these teams are saying, "Whew, we play the Texans... that's a win."

    I bet they're all saying, "We're going to be one & done."

    Not because they are playing the mighty Texans, but because they know they are not playing particularly well either.

    Vegas thinks our odds of winning the Super Bowl is better than the Broncos, Bengals, Raiders, Jets, & Titans.

    We'll be playing the Bengals, Raiders, Jets, or Titans....

    I think we have a good chance of winning a play-off game before the Cowboys.

    Don't count the Raiders out yet! They are only four field goals away from tying the game!
