I think the Bengals too but I'd like the Colts. That would be tantalizing

Yeah, unfortunately the Bengals. I think they're the best team out of the bunch, too.

Bengals

Colts

Ravens

Who do you want to play?

What do you care? You didn't even want us to finish with the #1 seed, remember?

I'm starting to believe everyone is right when they say you start some of the most worthless threads on here.

Bengals for me. I'd like to see Indy knock off the patriots.

Bengals
Colts
Ravens

I assume you mean the divisional round? The conference game would be for the AFC Championship and a spot in the Super Bowl. Until proven otherwise, I assume the Patriots will be coming to IF@MH for the AFCCG.

Between the Bengals, Colts & Ravens, I'd just say bring 'em on. The Broncos can take any of the three of them, because none are complete teams.

* The Bengals have a solid defense, but their offense is not as strong. Especially since there are reports of injury concerns for Benjarvis Green-Ellis. If he's down, or slowed, the Bengals becomes one-dimensional in favor of the Broncos defense. Of the top players on the Bengals offense, I'm most concerned about their TE, Jermaine Gresham. Peyton and crew can beat the Bengal defense. It won't be pretty or glorious, but they can put up enough points.

* For the Colts, I'd predict the Bronco offense has to jump on them early. Andrew Luck has an established tendency to hold the ball too long. If the Bronco offense can put up enough points to force the Colts to throw, there will be sacks and Luck will make mistakes -- especially if Champ and Chris Harris can slow down Reggie Wayne and take TJ Hilton out of the game. The Colts defense is nothing special. If the Broncos do get a sizable lead, they absolutely cannot let up and go conservative to run out the clock. Luck has also proven his ability to live up to his name with fourth quarter comebacks.

* For the Ravens? Again, their defense is not the Giant Purple Monster that it was a few years ago. Flacco is similar to Luck in that he'll hold the ball too long and make mistakes under pressure. We saw that just a couple weeks ago. Ray Rice will be the player to watch and red-dog, if Jim Caldwell starts calling screens and draws to slow the Bronco pass rush. He's savvy enough to do it, and a big part of the reason his predecessor was fired was that he didn't use Ray Rice enough.

Between the three, right now I'd say the Bengals will be the most likely to give a tough game in Denver. But that's why they play the games, no?

Yes I did Thank you I changed it.

I assume you mean Sports Authority Field @ Mile High? J/K

The Colts easily. Rookie QB coupled with a porous defense would make for a pretty easy win IMO.

If we HAVE to say it by the corporate name, Sports Authority sounds WAY better than Invesco Field...:strong:

With the way the Texans have been playing lately, I am not sure it would be an upset if they lost to the Bengals

The Colts will be the sentimental favorites. Just for that reason, I would rather not Denver be the ones to kick them out of the playoffs...

Remember the question is two parts;

who do you think we will host.

who do you want us to host.

We will host the colts first (Manning vs colts) Then Manning vs Brady....... then we play the vikings in the SB (Comeback player vs MVP) because RG said so.

Well, I believe the Ravens and Texans will win their games. So, therefore, I believe we will be playing the Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs!

This is impossible. Both teams on the decline. At LEAST one will get clipped.

Fair nuff and well-riposted on baja's behalf, sir.

I think we will host cincy because if they win (which I think they will), we have to play them. 3-6 game decides everything for the 2nd round.

I would prefer to b-more. They scare me the least

Yeah, it wouldn't be a shock to see both the Texans and Ravens lose.
Colts are weak though, I think Ray Rice will tear up that defense.

I honestly think we'll be hosting the Bengals, I think they beat the Texans.

Bengals. They're the lowest seed and we already beat them 31 to 23 in their own house.

Bengals lose and Colts win.

People say the Colts are weak, and they've been saying that for most of the season.
11 and 5 folks. Not that weak.
They have momentum, and this week's win over Houston (when they didn't need to start anyone) was a big risk, and a big gain in terms of keeping that momentum.
They can take the Ravens on the road. The Ravens have been sloppy of late, and they won't have time to gel with those coming back off the wounded list.

Who do I hope we host? Also the Colts. I think they're the easiest win for us. Slam bang, 35-13

I think we play the bangles but would like to see Indy. They are by far the worst 11-5 team in the nfl of recent history. Negative point differential, weak run D, rookie qb, and sub par cb's would be a nice confidence booster going into the afcc with Mcgahee

Hamrob

I'm pretty sure it will be the Ravens as I posted.

But, I want us to play the best team of the 3....hopefully, one of them step up and win big. I don't want a patsie...we need a team that prepares us well for NE!
