    This is a good one tonight to open up Week 16. Two schools of thought from Patriots fans on this one:

    (1) Root for Tennessee, and keep the slim chance for the two seed alive at all costs, or (2) Root for San Diego so that the Chargers lock up the two seed, and a Patriots win (or Dolphins loss) on Sunday gives you the chance to rest whomever you want in Week 17 at Houston.

    For the Pats to get the two, they must win out, have Cincinnati lose either vs. KC, or at NYJ, and SD must lose tonight and at home versus Washington. I can see Washington getting up for their SNF game this week at home against Dallas (before their monstrosity last Monday against the Giants, they had been playing rather well), but I can't imagine them putting in an A+ effort cross country in Week 17 (and hell, and A+ effort might not even be enough).

    As much as the 2 would be huge, I wouldn't hate a Chargers win tonight...

    So long as a bye is still an option you have to root against SD

    Yes, that pick belongs to the Patriots, as does JAX's.

    I'll put my vote for the Titans, a chance at a bye is better than nothing. And let's be honest, I can't stand LT aftet his Pats "classless" comments a few years ago...

    The Titans offense looks exactly like the Florida Gators offense, except in the NFL. Will be interesting if it will continue to work in the next few years.

    I hate that rule. If your arm is over when it throws the ball, you should be over.

    Eh, screw the #2 seed, Chargers will kill Washington anyway.

    Lets root for the Titans and Jags to finish 7-9, will have back to back early-mid 2nd round picks.

    It was over when we lost to Miami... that was it... we had a chance, but San Diego is playing very well.. I would want the 4th seed right now, and take my chances with the Colts before San Diego...

    Rivers and San Diego are proving tonight why they are a elite team , and we should not be so anxious to face them. Tenn is proving what a fraud team they are as well...

    I still say if the Patriots face the Chargers, the Pats will beat them. I no longer trust games @ Indy though.

    Man, this is just a beating. Tennessee is rolling over and dying just like they did in Foxboro in the snow.

    Yep, lots of proving going on. Getting through the AFC could be a pyrrhic victory this year.

    I'm not sure which would be more truthful: your avatar, or a ref in a Colts jersey. :p :mad:

    Good, at least the Pats know they can't be the # 2 Seed now and can rest half the team next week if the Pats can win on Sunday (since Week 17 will be fairly meaningless).

    - Clinch the AFC East title on Sunday
    - Rest Brady, Wilfork, Warren, and others in Week 17 and take the #4 Seed
    - Win home game in the 1st Round (against Ravens?? - won't be a gimme but at least it's in NE.)

    By then hopefully their offense is clicking and the team is healthy. If that is the case, I'd give them a 50/50 shot of upsetting the Colts.

    Eh, I dunno if I can agree with this.

    They are good, but, they can be beaten.

    Plus, who is the coach again? Exactly...

    Impressive win. Chargers come out with the #2 seed and no season ending injuries caused the Titans.

    Really? You don't think Indy or SD has a shot against NO or Minn?

    No Jersey Selected

    I was hoping for a better showing from the Flaming Thumbtacks, but, alas, they collapsed in a biblical fashion. However, SD's 42 points weren't quite as impressive to watch as they sound. Tennessee seemed able to move the ball pretty easily on the Chargers, and as much as they scored, the victory belongs almost equally to the Titans. Tennessee did a great impression of Buffalo, giving up easy picks and fumbles and killing themselves with penalties.

    Had the Titans had better discipline, eliminating most or all of those penalties, and not turned over the ball as they did, I believe it very likely that they could have beaten SD. When Tennessee didn't incur flags, they had some VERY solid drives against the Chargers, and proved that SD has problems stopping the run.

    :cool:
