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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

If we can't beat the Patriots we don't deserve to win the Super Bowl. I think we can.

Actually if New England wins out and Houston drops a game then New England gets the first seed and we would want to 3rd

I think we should try and win out and let the chips fall where they may

I think we can beat New England, but I am not super confident in that

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

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?

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
