YET, we are the ONLY team that has not lost a game to anybody else besides these teams in the top 5. Everybody else has lost games to scrubs or mediocre teams. At least that says to me, that this team was still coming together, even though we were in those games. It may cost us the #1 seed but it also could have forced this team to improve much faster then if we had some scrubs early. Being 2-3 and having played the elite teams showed us how fast we needed to improve, and that we did.
who you lose to and when IMO does not mean all that much..
NE lost to some scrubs because every team they play feels like it is their Superbowl if they can beat them..
next year we will have the target on our backs, this year not so much.. the next two games for us will be the browns and chefs Superbowl games.. hoping they can knock us out of the #2 seed..
I take the "who they lost to" witha grain of salt..Till they get near this time of year.. NOW they all count..
