Default If we can't get the bye....

I sure as hell hope we can avoid NE in the second round. Hopefully they get upset and if we make it to the title game we don't have to play them. If Houston wins out they are the #1 seed so we would be better off being the #4. That way we would play Indy instead of maybe Pittsburgh in the first round, and would more than likely play Houston in round 2. Worst case scenario is for us to end up #3 and NE ends up#2. That guarantees a second round matchup if we win our first game.

I should also state I have every confidence we can beat them. But I would rather not go to Foxboro if we don't have to.

yeah, I mean, has the three seed ever been so clearly worse than the four seed before? easier matchups in both rounds.

I have been saying this for a while

It would almost benefit us to lose to Baltimore if we cant get the #2 seed

I would rather than travel to Houston than play New England

You do not know who is the 1 or 2 seed now. Pats own tie breaker if Houston loses one of their games to the Colts they will become the 2 seed.

Yeah this is a rough game. Agreed the #4 seed looking a lot better assuming the Texans hold on to #1.

Yeah, but 2 healthy TE's and home field advantage will be tough.

Joe Mays is riding the pine and we have DJ back. Not as worried as I would have been with Mays playing.

We need to be the ones to beat down NE and that punk mCd. I like our chances where ever we play.

Yep DJ your savior. Ahahahahaha

Someone else mentioned losing by ten after being down by 21. Do you really think NE did not go into cruise control after building that lead?

Do you really think had it been closer they would not have just kept the foot to the floorboard?

If so your a fool.

So many folks with short memories of what they did to a fox team in the playoffs last year. I know we have made changes but so have they.

Like the went into cruise control vs. Houston? A fool can see that 3 TOs are what sunk the Broncos in that game.

Hell yeah! This isn't the same tram NE beat up on earlier this year. Personally I'd love a revenge tour playoffs. First Manning shows Luck how it's done, next Denver curb stomps Brady on his turf, then we march on Houston on ourway to destroying Atlanta in the super bowl.

We played like **** and their gameplan was just to pick on Joe Mays all game long

I dont know what is up with Houston, but the Patriots are not THIS good

If we play well I think we can hang with them

I remember Manning shredding their D for 350 yards and 3 TDs. I remember Maghee having 85 yards on 14 carries.

But the thing I remember most is losing 3 fumbles. TOs killed us. If Magahee does fumble away the ball... And we go punch it in, that game gets really interesting.

I want us to beat their asses. At their place would be even more sweet. We've done this before, lets do it again!

This.

Don't let that patriot fan Action see you guys shaking. He already thinks "every single broncos fan" is scared of his favorite team.

Edit. You know I'm just ****in with you A

If we have to play them there I'd rather it be in the AFCCG. Then we won't have them coming off a bye.

Houston still has to play Indy 2 times, so them winning out is far from guaranteed.

Well, there might not be anything for Indy to play for in week 17, and we all know how chickenshlt their FO was just a few short years ago. Maybe they sit their starters for that one if there isn't anything to play for.

Very true. But if they win out, they can win the division, so they have plenty to play for next week. By the way, who scheduled them to play 2 times in 3 weeks?
