    That's pretty much what I'm thinking.
    I thought Tennessee and/or Buffalo might give the Browns a run for their money for the wildcard spot, but after last weekend, I don't think the Bills are going anywhere, and the Titans only have a hair more offense than the Ravens.

    lol - I already posted this in the 'future' post, but that's fine.

    I had the same teams. at this point. I think it's becoming pretty clear.

    I think the broncos are the only team I see with a real chance to sneak in there. they's have to totally outplay the chargers the rest of the way though.


    I still think the afc is gonna totally come down to pats-colts.

    god, I think we're gonna start to get sick to death of each other if this keeps up !

    I agree with most of you guys.How ever I do think its going to be a battle between the Colts & Steelers for the 2nd seed.If Pittsburgh loses 1 more game (which they probably will) then the Colts should get it.

    Looking at the schedules, I think the AFC playoff seedings are already set.

    1. Patriots
    2. Colts
    3. Steelers
    4. Chargers
    5. Jaguars
    6. Browns

    I see the Steelers manhandling the Browns and the Jags holding off San Diego. We throttle Jacksonville by 30 in the disional playoffs setting up the inevetable matchup with Indy.

    I am down on the Steelers because they have a harder remaining schedule than Cleveland. Also, Big Ben is the #2 most sacked QB in the league this year. If you go to NFL.COM and sort the QBs by # of times sacked he is in some pretty bad company. I don't know how he is going to be healthy for the play offs. I think the Jets sacked him 7 times in their game with the Steelers.

    I think the Browns could make the AFC Championship game, with their offense. Hey, if the Colts could do it for so many years, why not the Browns?

    If the Browns are for real, they should cruise in their last 5 games.

    CLE @ ARI
    CLE @ NYJ
    BUF @ CLE
    CLE @ CIN
    SF @ CLE

    If they could finish off the season 5-0 (Which, really isn't that much of a stretch looking at the teams above) and the Steelers were to lose 2 or more games, they'd have the AFC North.

    With the Steelers remaining schedule, I'm sure they will have two losses at least. (Pats, Jags) As well as another "We just got beat by a bad team" loss.

    CIN @ PIT
    PIT @ NE
    JAC @ PIT
    PIT @ STL
    PIT @ BAL

    If the Steelers have the three seed and the Browns have the sixth. Or if the Steelers have the fourth seed and the Browns have the fifth (unlikely). It's not like MLB, division opponents can meet in the first round of the playoffs (see Pats/Jets last year), if that's what your question is alluding to.

    The Colts play the Jags, Ravens, Texans, Titans, and Oakland to finish the season. The Jags play the Colts, Carolina, Steelers, Oakland, and the Texans. I'm not so sure I think the Colts are going to win the division. I think the Jags are going to beat the Colts this weekend, and they have a very real chance to run the table (they could easily take down the Steelers in a couple weeks). If that were to happen the Colts would fall to 9-3 (hold the division lead because of division record). The way the Colts are presently constructed I think they're going to struggle against another team (namely the Titans or Texans). So here it goes, the Colts are going to be a Wild Card team this year.

    Patriots
    Jaguars
    Steelers
    Chargers
    Colts
    Browns

    I'd be really happy with this.

    This is perfect. The Steelers and Colts need to fight it out for the priviledge of coming to NE because the Jags and Chargers aren't threats.

    If I pick MY playoff seedings, then I will always be right, because they are MINE. Do you mean "Predict THE playoff seedings?"

    OK, I'm nitpicking, I knew what you meant. :D

    1. Pats
    2. Indy
    3. Pitt
    4. SanD
    5. Jax
    6. Clev

    wildcards:
    Pitt d Clev
    Jax d SanD

    divisionals
    Pats d Jax
    Indy d Pitt

    championship
    Pats d Indy

    I honestly believe the Jags are the second best team in the AFC right now. Let's not forget one of their losses came when Quinn Gray was a starter and this team is much better with Garrard, who is a very good qb.

    (Doing my best BB Impression)..They are good in all 3 phases of the game, offense, defense, special teams. They are physical on both sides of the ball, have one of the best return mans in Jones-Drew and they don't make many mistakes. They protect the ball well and create turnovers.

    That being said, I think the Jags beat the Colts this week, but after that I see both teams running the table, meaning the Colts will take the number 2 seed. I think the most likely upset is the Texans beating the Colts. I don't think any team will upset the Jags.

    I'm going to really put some thought into this. LOL

    Here is how I predict each week will turn out among the AFC playoff hopefuls (Bills, Broncos, Browns, Chargers, Chiefs, Colts, Jaguars, Patriots, Steelers, Texans, and Titans) and therefor how the seeding will go. Underlining the winners:

    Week 13

    Chargers @ Chiefs
    Jaguars @ Colts
    Texans @ Titans
    Bills @ Redskins
    Browns @ Cardinals
    Broncos @ Raiders
    Bengals @ Steelers
    Patriots @ Ravens

    Week 14

    Chargers @ Titans
    Buccaneers @ Texans
    Panthers @ Jaguars
    Dolphins @ Bills
    Steelers @ Patriots
    Browns @ Jets
    Chiefs @ Broncos
    Colts @ Ravens

    Week 15

    Broncos @ Texans
    Titans @ Chiefs
    Jaguars @ Steelers
    Bills @ Browns
    Jets @ Patriots
    Colts @ Raiders
    Lions @ Chargers

    Week 16

    Steelers @ Rams
    Giants @ Bills
    Texans @ Colts
    Browns @ Bengals
    Dolphins @ Patriots
    Raiders @ Jaguars
    Chiefs @ Lions
    Jets @ Titans
    Broncos @ Chargers

    Week 17

    Patriots @ Giants
    Titans @ Colts
    Bills @ Eagles
    Jaguars @ Texans
    49ers @ Browns
    Steelers @ Ravens
    Chargers @ Raiders
    Vikings @ Broncos
    Chiefs @ Jets

    That would leave us with these standings for these 11 teams:

    1. New England Patriots (16-0)
      [*]Indianapolis Colts (13-3)
      [*]Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5)
      [*]San Diego Chargers (10-6)
      [*]Jacksonville Jaguars (12-4)
      [*]Cleveland Browns (11-5)
    2. Denver Broncos (9-7)
    3. Buffalo Bills (8-8)
    4. Kansas City Chiefs (7-9)
    5. Tennessee Titans (7-9)
    6. Houston Texans (6-10)
