    Division Championship
    1. Patriots win (vs Packers)
    2. Jets lose (@ Steelers)
    = AFC East Championship

    Patriots would be 12-2 and the Jets would be 9-5, meaning the best they could finish is at 11-5.

    Bye Week
    Patriots would also clinch a bye week with 12 wins (+ Jets loss) due to the AFC South & West leaders both already having 5+ losses.

    #1 Seed
    Patriots would not yet clinch the #1 seed as the Steelers could still finish 13-3 and the Patriots could still finish 12-4.

    The Jets have to beat the Steelers? Oh well, we will have to wait another week because that ain't happening.

    Okay, that makes more sense. The Jets could still technically clinch the division and the #1 seed. Highly unlikely but still not impossible.

    So this means we have to root for the Jets next week?

    Perhaps you could fully and accurately analyze this rather than rush to post?
    The previous thread you deleted was clearly wrong. And I am not so sure aout this... is it really needed for the Pats to win AND the Jets lose? I don't know, will have to check.

    It wasn't that long ago we were seeing graphics showing the Jets as the team winning the AFCE and the Pats getting the wildcard. :rolleyes:

    I think if the Jets lose next week we win the East no matter happens in our game

    Re: Patriots can clinch AFC East next week

    Yes.

    Patriots beat Packers / lose to Dolphins / lose to Bills
    = Patriots finish 12-4 (3-3 Division Record)

    Patriots beat Steelers / beat Bears / beat Bills
    = Jets finish 12-4 (4-2 Division Record)

    Perhaps you could fully and accurately analyze this rather than rush to post a "you may be wrong" just to spite my initial error, which was corrected literally within seconds.

    Don't worry people. Watching the Jets lose is almost as satisfying as watching the Patriots win.

    The best scenario is that the Jets can lose their next two games and they can likely be out of it.

    The Patriots will win the division. The key now is the bye so we can enjoy wild card weekend and await the opponent. The Jets are in retrograde and may miss the playoffs.

    One game at a time, one goal at a time.

    If we win and the jets lose, we are division champs and are guaranteed a bye.

    We will then need one more win to guarantee #1 seed.

    I hope the jests make the playoffs so we can give them another beatdown. 45-3 isn't enough.
