The Pats have control of their seeding destiny up to 2nd seed. I incorrectly posted over on KFFL that this was true BECAUSE SD lost. Actually, it's been true all along. At this point, if the Pats hypothetically run the table, the only team that could be seeded ahead of them would be Denver. (Had SD not lost, "Denver" would have to be replaced in that sentence by "the AFC West champion".) Third place in the conference; control of their destiny up to second seed -- I'll take that gladly at this point in the season.
