Honestly, I like our chances against everybody in the AFC. It comes down to mistakes. Because if we can avoid those, I think we have the most well balanced team in the NFL (Offense, Defense, ST). It will all come down to if we beat ourselves or not.
Their TE's. If they are both healthy, that is a tough matchup for our defense. Granted, most of what they did against us was on 3rd down and long with Mays in the game earlier, but they have improved through the year as well.
