Getting one of those first round by's should be top priority and I hope Fox is successful at getting the team to continue to play hard, while at the same time having the luxory to rest key players that are on the bubble of playing due to injury if need be.
We need to play for a bye and to make NE come here. I think NE could drop the 49er and or Houston game, we need to keep the pressure on them and Balt.
If we beat Balt, and NE drops a game we are 2nd, I don't worry about going to Houston but we play like **** on the East coast.
