    Baltimore is unbeaten and could have the inside track on one of the two byes (along with indy) if they leave Denver undefeated tonight. Baltimore has a more competitive division and could drop a couple there as well as games vs Atlanta, @KC, vs carolina, and @new orleans. It is a more likely scenario that they lose more than the Pats do the rest of the way.

    Denver, after starting slow, is 2-1, a win makes them 3-1 and they only have competition from SD in their own division. No matter what, they hold the tiebreaker vs the Pats. Denver's schedule is a bit more forgiving than that of Baltimore's. They are not unbeatable by any stretch but they have more seemingly winnable games left than do the Ravens.

    I guess I'll go wtih rooting for Baltimore. The Patriots do not face Baltimore so really it is overall record and then record vs AFC opponents (if a tie) that will determine the seeding. The Patriots could still finished tied with Baltimore record-wise and win the tiebreaker. Since Denver beat the Pats head to head, we need them to lose one more than the Pats do (probably somewhere in the vacinity of 5 games) the rest of the way.

    Root for the Ravens, even if they go to 5-0. Any loss by the team (Denver)enjoying the best home field advantage in the NFL over the Patriots, is good for New England.

    Baltimore for me.

    I hate the Broncos. And if we had to play @ Bal or @ Den, I would prefer @ Bal.

    Baltimore. Get the Broncos out of the homefield picture early. Baltimore has a ton of vets; they'll start breaking down later in the season anyway. But I think Denver will win, unfortunately.

    Can't say I hate them both. I might root for the Broncos only because the Ravens are so over rated its not even funny. That might change as the game goes along.

    I don't want the Broncos in the playoffs, at all costs. I'd rather the Pats lose out on a bye but be guaranteed not to face the Broncos than have a bye but chance meeting Denver. They're understandably in my head.

    Besides, the Ravens 4 game game streak is no better than the Dolphins 6 game streak to end last year (a bunch of awful teams and San Diego). I've watched parts of their games and they play well for the final 5-10 minutes. Otherwise they look really bad.

    I hope Baltimore wins because I don't want to play Denver in the playoffs. I don't think Baltimore is that goos so they'll lose a few games later this season regardless.

    You can't possibly expect me to root for a team that eat Patriots for breakfast, can you?

    I will root for any team overe Broncos anyday, even... even... Indy..

    The Ravens are overrated and will lose more this year. We need Denver to have a worse record than the Pats. Go, Baltimore!

    I understand not liking Ray Ray -- the dance, the crimes, all about him.

    I like watchiung Ed Reed. Amazing talent and drive. he made on of the greatest solo plays I've ever seen. I believe it was against Brunell -- he took a very long route around, strip sacked, and returned the fumble for a TD. Didn;t he also have a 107 or 109 yeard return>

    Can someone explain why they would hate McNair? I think he's a very good QB who has played most of his career injured. He made it to the pros after being drafted out of Alcorn State (where???).

    Ravens, Ravens, Ravens.

    NE has trouble with Denver, for whatever reasons. Root for the possibility that Denver doesn't make it. Baltimore can be beat. Their defense is tough but certainly not impregnable. Their offense is infused with McNair, but that will fade.

    Denver can be beat, and other teams are capable. Baltimore seems to be predictable for the Pats, so hail to the Ravens. The Broncettes, however, seem to have an incalcuable insight. F-'em.
