What's your thoughts on a tough, up-and-coming team with an emotional backstory, not to mention the additional Manning/Luck generational storyline that would be sure to come hand in hand with the game?
I don't think this is likely, and here is why....I think we finish 5-0 or 4-1. If we finish 5-0 and NE loses one game we get the bye. If we don't get the bye we probably finish with the #3 seed unless our one loss is to Baltimore. If we finish #3 I think we play Pittsburgh who would be the #6 and that scares the crap out of me. We need the bye
