    Pull for Jacksonville this week. If Pitt drops another then we are in the driver's seat for the #3 seed. :yes:

    I'd much rather play Cleveland and then Indy rather than J-Ville and New England. I'd also love to see what the Jagwads can do against that pansy Patriot interior D. At the very least, the Patsies will be beat up going into the AFC CG.

    Tie, Shmie! Just win the next three games goddammit! Let the rest of the chips fall where they may. Play the games, win the games. Period. That's what they've been doing and that's what they'll keep doing. Everything else is a distraction, 'cause all they have to do is think about knocking the other guy's ***** in the dirt. Just like they did last week.

    Houston did their part, now we have to do ours. Not only this week, but for the other two after that.

    Hopefully JAX steamrolls the Steelers this weekend, but I'll be equally happy if they win on an FG at the gun :yes:

    So if Jax wins sunday it would be like this, correct?
    Week 1 bye:
    #1 NE
    #2 INDY
    Wildcard round:
    #6 Cleveland @ #3 SD
    #5 Jax @ #4 Pitt

    Unless CLE beats us, the winner of the Jax/Pitt game would play @ NE and we would play @ Indy. If Pitt or Jax beats NE and we beat IND we could host the afc championship, right? Otherwise we would go to NE.

    My brother was asking, and since I figured someone here might know, how do the Bills get into the playoffs? Win out?

    This weekend is key for the Bills. They are one game behind Cleveland, and play them this weekend. They are also tied with the Titans. If they win out, I think they might be able to pull it off.
