Default 2nd seed...

I'll be a Texans and Redskins fan this weekend.

The Ravens game this Sunday doesn't matter! What matters is when we play the Ravens and New England losing 1 of these next 2 games.

Easiest way for us is win out. NE needs to lose once

Or we need Balt and NE to lose 2 games is our second best shot

worst we'll be is 12-4

If we are we need NE and Balt @ 11-5

Balt has a pretty tough road

This is what it comes down to.

The Broncos need take care of their own business

Exactly how I want to earn it. Besides even though I love the way we are playing we need a quality road win in a place we have sputtered in forever.

I think anybody who is not living in fantasy land realizes getting the #1 seed is NOT going to happen. Houston has the tie breaker on us and has a 2 game lead. They would need to lose 3 out of 4 games. Not gonna happen. Wish and pray all you want, not gonna happen.

NE has to lose 1 and we need to win out. Period. Best chance for NE to lose I think is Monday night.

I know. But there will be some people commenting on and asking why we are rooting for Houston this week because they think we still have a lagit shot at the #1 seed. I'm just making it clear.

We have been for 8 straight weeks. It is always nice for those other teams to lose a few which hasn't happen as often lately.
I am a Redskins fan and a Texans fan this weekend.

For some of you that have two favorite teams, let me know some of the studs and the team's excuses for the Redskins.

1 seed would be great, but very unlikely. Plus, I think we could win in Houston. They have had some close calls and I don't think they are the best team in the AFC.

2 seed is our best hope. If somehow NE gets 4 and ravens get 3, even better.

If the ravens beat us, I'd rather end up with them ahead of us for the 3 seed. Let the Ravens and NE beat each other up, then go into one of their houses and beat them.

I'm not saying Houston is a easy win, but I like our chances there more than in NE or in Bal.

I don't know why everybody is so afraid of NE. We played them so early on and we were nowhere close to coming together as a team as we are now. We have much more experience together. And if memory servers me correct, we had them somewhat figured out in the 2nd half and we made them very very nervous. Go back and watch the game if you have to, watch the 2nd half and you will feel much better about what the Broncos can do against the Pats.

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.

Last thing I want to see is Denver on the road against a rested Pats team in the playoffs, so that's probably exactly what will happen.

I heard the same stuff when we faced Indy. Oh this time will be different and afterwards same result happens. Indy loved facing us every year just like NE does now. Same with playing in Baltimore we haven't done well there but, I do think this is our best team going in but, I still not sure of the result until we win there.

Every team has one team they struggle against the most. Are we better then we were week 3 week 5 sure no doubt. Are we strong enough to expect to win going into NE NO.

I don't fear NE but, my way of thinking is until you ACTUALLY take it to them. No mulligan's in football.

This is when we had Griese and Plummer...now we have Manning! Huge difference.

I want what ever gives us the #2 seed and keeps Pittsburg out of the playoffs so I guess I want Baltimore to win this Sunday and then we beat Baltimore the following Sunday.

Yeah, I'd rather see the Bengals and Colts instead of the Steelers.

Which is why I was upset that the Steelers beat the Ravens last week.

NE at home is scary, but in Denver not so much. We need the 2 seed imo.
