    Let's assume that the Chargers win the division, can they get that first week bye in the playoffs?

    This is the remaining schedule for all for AFC division leaders

    Colts (9-1)

    Eagles (W)
    @Titans (W)
    @Jaguars (L)
    Bengals (W)
    @Texans (W)
    Dolphins (W)

    Final Record : 14-2 (1st. seed)


    Ravens (8-2) * has tie braker over Chargers
    =================================
    Steelers (W)
    @Bengals (L)
    @Chiefs (L)
    Browns (W)
    @Steelers (L)
    Bills (W)

    Final Record : 11-5

    Patriots (7-3)
    ==========
    Bears (L)
    Lions (W)
    @Dolphins (L)
    Texans (W)
    @Jaguars (L)
    @Titans (W)

    Final Record : 10-6

    Chargers (8-2)
    ===========
    Oakland (W)
    @ Bills (W)
    Broncos (L) let's say they loose one of the two (Broncos and Chiefs)
    Chiefs (W)
    @Seahawks (L)
    Cardinals (W)

    Final Record : 12-4 (2nd seed and a bye :tup: :icon_banana: )

    We need to be hoping for more Indy and Ravens loses along with Denver and KC losses--to position ourselves better in the playoffs. It would be nice to have a bye week and a playoff game at home. A win/loss record tie with Ravens won't help us because they beat us in our only game with them this year.

    Right now Baltimore is 8-2---Indy is 9-1 and Denver is 7-3.

    Too early to think about this IMO. We still have alot of games left to win. Ill post back at the end of the season...but I can tell you, I want the Ravens at home for revenge to show everyone we should of beat them!!!

    If Indy goes 14-2 we cannot win homefield advantage, even if we finish 14-2.

    Both of our losses have come to AFC teams. If Indy goes 14-2 they will only have 1 or 0 losses to AFC teams. There's your tiebreaker right there...

    Our best chance at homefield advantage is for us to win the rest of our games and have Indy and Baltimore go 13-3 or worse.
