    Personally, I'm voting bengals. Dalton didn't look so good in last years game vs the texans from what I remember. And Jets are a divisional opponent and rex has worked wonders before. Steelers I'd least like to face.

    I'll take the Steelers. One dimensional passing offense one dimensional defense. Lousy coach. Yeah definitely the Steelers.

    AJ Green is beastly and Bjge doesn't fumble very often and has been playing better lately.

    Jets? Lol they ain't making the playoffs period. And if by some miracle they do, all that's waiting for them is embarrassment of epic proportions.

    Don't care out of those choices, but I picked the Bengals.

    Colts. They're the least physical team of all the options and the Pats already crushed them once.

    Why aren't the Colts in the poll?

    I'd rather face the Bengals.

    EDIT: Sorry, brain fart. We wouldn't play the Colts based on seeding.

    They dont have a lousy coach. And Ben R is the best of 3 QB's. Their WR's are too fast for us and their D is still one of the best even if we have had success against them.

    I agree. People can argue that they are one-dimensional, their defense is old, blah blah blah, but this team is probably one of the most playoff-experienced teams in football after us, Ravens, Giants, Packers.

    Jets; it's a twofer: get to embarrass a hated team and the PO appearance will buy them a few more years of being slightly better than the really bad teams!

    In my real world the Colts, again because I really don't like them and think the Pats will roll any WC team they face.

    I don't think it matters. The wild card contenders really aren't going to worry anyone on the AFC side. They're either in transition years or just not very good.

    I don't really care. But if I had my choice ...

    Ravens. Ravens are 9-5. Lose out (to the Giants and @Cincinnati) and they are 9-7. Win out and Cincinnati is 10-6 and wins the AFCN. The Colts win 1 more and they are the #5 seed.

    Serve me up some jailbird fricasee in Foxboro. Time to payback the 33-14 loss in 2009 and the game earlier this year. The Ravens are in shambles. Nice confidence builder before going to Denver.

    Meanwhile let the Colts play the Bengals and the winner goes to Houston to be served up. Texans won't really have had any major tests between our last game in Foxboro and hopefully the next one in the AFCCG.

    But again, I'll take any one.

    You included the team least likely to get in (Jets) and didn't include the team most likely to get in (Colts)???

    Anyways, Ravens. If Cincinnati wins out, I think they get the North. The Ravens are riddled with injuries right now, offense is stagnant, and look like they are going to implode.

    Also a note to others, just because we crushed the Colts doesn't mean it's going to happen again. A lot of fans said the same thing when we crushed the Jets 45-3 only to lose to them in the playoffs. I expect a closer game and I'm also a little wary that if Pagano returns for the post season, they'll have an emotional boost. Still think the Pats easily win though.

    Ravens. Take out the fact we are the third seed, because of their win that really wasn't, on them.

    Still holding out hope that the Broncos could lose. Stranger things have happened.

    He didn't mention the Colts because they're almost definitely getting the fifth seed and therefore not playing us.

    Don't see us playing the Colts, so I'll go with the Steelers. Just have to watch the film of last year in case LeBlow pulls out that trick again (zone blitz vs. press man). I wouldn't mind playing the Bengals, either, but I think their defense would pose more of a problem for our offense with the way they're able to generate pressure up the A and B gaps.

    Good points, they're a mess right now. However, Suggs and Ray-Ray are hooked up to the HGH errr...rejuvenation machine and may be fine for the playoffs.

    Is Pollard still on the Ravens? If so it's not worth the risk.

    I picked the Bengals. They're not exactly a clutch playoff team.

    against the Browns or Chiefs?? There's a greater chance the Texans lose to Minnesota and Indy

    Going to be pitt. They have 2 home games vs bengals and browns to get the sixth. Would be interesting if BB plays for the 4th seed or 3rd seed in week 17 like in 2006 when they didnt really want to win the last game so they could avoid pitt and play jax.I guess he will play to win assuming broncos will beat the chiefs.

    Jets. Quicker preparation /less new to learn, and the least talent by a lot.

    Cincinnati is hungry, Pittsburgh has experience, and both have QBs way way way better than Sanchezfumblebutt

    assuming they win either of these games the way they are playing is a stretch


    it will be baltimore or the bengals......i like either matchup at home.....i think baltimore is banged up for sure, and they have no idea how to properly utilize ray rice, but he is still dangerous.....the bengals actually might be the tougher matchup right now

    Looks like we can cross one team off this list lol, really botched their chance there. [​IMG] I didn't include the colts btw because it's unlikely they finish with the 6th seed or the pats finish with the 4th seed and so on and so forth. Now that you guys mentioned it, it would be fun to crush the ravens in the 1st round.

    The Ravens could be a 6th seed, if they lose out. I'd love to see them get pounded in Foxboro, as long as Pollard isn't hurting anybody.

    Most likely going to be Baltimore. I just don't see Bengals winning out on their last two very tough games.

    We'll then go to Denver. I am not worried about Denver. I understand we have a history in Denver, but we easily forced them to be one-dimensional by shutting down McGahee, and I really doubt Thomas is going to get 180 on us again.
