Never has it been this unclear. How will the playoff picture end up in the AFC?
This just in; Miami isn't going.
Chargers should roll like a hot knife through butter.
It's clear that Indy is in. If San Diego beats Seattle, they take the first round bye as well. Patriots and Ravens are in as well. AFC wildcard is pretty much unclear between Cincy, Denver, Jacksonville, and the Jets.
Final score of the Ravens vs. Steelers Sunday? Think the Ravens roll again?
right now its:
5. Denver Broncos 8-6
6. Cincinatti Bengals 8-6
7. Jacksonville Jaguars 8-6
8. New York Jets 8-6
denver is 5th because of its 7-4 conference record, the Bengals have a 6-4 conference record and the Jets and Jags are tied with a 5-5 conference record but the Jags have a head to head win against hte Jets making the Jags 7th and the Jets 8th for now. here are the schedules for all of them
vs San Francisco
vs New England
@ Kansas City
<u>New York Jets</u>
so heres my opinion on where its going to end up. the Broncos are playing the Bengals. Thats a huge advantage for the Jets and the Jaguars. It means one of them is going to have a loss this week. I think after that Denver has an easier opponent in San Francisco when the Bengals are gonna have to play the Steelers who are on a roll now even though they are pretty much out of the playoffs. The Jaguars also have a really tough schedule they have to play New England at home and even though they are a really good team at home, they suck at away games and Kansas City at Arrowhead is one of the toughest teams to beat in the NFL. The Jets have the easiest schedule they have to play Miami in Miami which will be a tough game but the Jets are very good on away games. Then they play Oakland at home the next week which should be a easy game.
So my predictions to get the wildcard spots are:
New York Jets (knock on wood)

Sounds like a wager. I'd bet the Ravens will win 13-10 with a McNair winning drive. Joey Porter might have his day if Jonathan Ogden is out.
First, let me say that I can't believe you're writing off all of the 7-7 teams. Tennessee, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Kansas City all still have a shot.
As far as the wager, what did you have in mind?
sure the 7-7 teams still have a shot but lets look at it
teh Bills have to play Tennessee and Baltimore, which means one of those teams is getting a loss. And the game against Baltimore we'll see if they decide to sit their players.
The Titans have to play Buffalo and New England. again we'll see if New England decides to sit their players i dont think they will if the Jets win in week 16 and they lose because then they are in position to lose the division.
Pittsburgh has a really tough schedule they have to play Baltimore week 16 and the Bengals week 17, the Bengals wont sit their players since they'll still be fightin for a playoff spot then.
Kansas City has a good shot as well they have to play Oakland and Jacksonville.
The reason i'm writing all of them off kinda is because they all have a horrible AFC conference record which is the first tiebreaker. The Jets and teh Jaguars ahve the worst AFC records out of the 8-6 teams with a 5-5 AFC record.
Kansas City: 3-7
the team with the best shot there is the Bills but other than that it'll take a lot of luck for the other teams

With Their record w/in the AFC, the Chiefs have no shot IMO. With the conditions ranman laid out in the what needs to happen thread...., I would be really surprised if Tennessee got in.
As for the other 2, well.... its a deep subject.
This just in.

Maybe a signature bet for the week. If the Ravens win, you put something Ravens-related in a good way. If the Steelers win, I put something Steelers-related in a good way.
pretty much now the Jets and the Broncos control their own destiny
And SF now has the same sig image as MKIV
Oh and it blows.... the order now goes....
Tennessee (if they make it)
Denver (if they make it)
Jets (if they make it)
Cincinnati (if they make it)
That's how I'm rooting in the AFC.
In the NFC, it goes...
In order I am going for; Colts, Chargers, Ravens, Cincy (if they make it) New England, Jax (if they make it), Jets (if...), & will be cheering for Denver to stay at home.
In the NFC, I am going for Seattle or NOLA.
Cincinnati & Jacksonville choked big time.... as well as Denver.
Way to go Kansas City! You were the team that had the least chance two weeks ago out of:
And you made it!
woooo JETS are the #5 seed. going back to Foxboro to kick some Patriots ASS (knock on wood). Hopefully we'll have a repeat of the last Jets vs Patriot game!!
good job Kansas City I didnt expect the Broncos to choke that bad.
Lamar Hunt was definetely a factor in helping the Chiefs get into the playoffs.
Pats haven't had a single turnover on offense in it's last 3 games. I look for that streak to continue on Sunday.
