    Way to go with the positive language in the thread title!

    FYI losing to other excellent teams like SF or Houston is not 'effing it up' - The Bronco's have a cakewalk finish - i'd make them favorite for the #2 seed right now.

    I'm a self admitted homer - most people will tell you this.

    Not to the level of self-delusion though - half our remaining games are against the NFL elite - Denver faces only the dregs apart from a fading (but hopefully angry Baltimore!)

    I think if we win out we will be hosting the AFCCG.

    re: Ravens lose!!

    I agree.

    The 2nd best scenario is we lose once and finish 12-4, but still get at least the #2 seed. It's hard to imagine Houston losing 3 out of 4 games. But if Baltimore beats Denver and then loses to either the Giants or Cincy, 12-4 would give us the edge over both teams.

    re: Ravens lose!!

    Who else will beat them do you think?

    Minny or Indy?

    Both have a shot I guess - I don't thhink either have a QB that is capable of scaring Houston - fingers crossed though eh?!

    re: Ravens lose!!

    What Andy is saying s Houston is bound to lose one of its 2 remaining games against the colts. We would both be 13-3, but win the tiebreaker having beaten them.

    With the Ravens loss we officially control our own destiny for the bye. Of course that all changes if we lose tomorrow

    re: Ravens lose!!

    We will be favored in every game. Denver will not.
    We have 3 of 4 at home.
    We have won 21 straight December home games and haven't lost a game in the second half of the season since 2009.

    re: Ravens lose!!

    I really wish the first game was @ Indy, cuz with the AFC sucking so bad there's a decent chance Indy has their WC wrapped up before the week 17 matchup at home against Houston. I think Houston goes 14-2 at worst and winds up with the 1 seed, there's always hope though.

    Either way, it's good to know that we get rewarded with a bye if we do win out.

    re: Ravens lose!!

    They will lose one of the 3, most likely at Indy. Just what I think will happen.
    Of course we could also be the 2 seed and host the AFCCG if Baltimore, Indy, Cincy, or Pitt go into Houston and win in the divisional round, which isn't that far fetched.

    Right because teams often win games because they are 'motivated' because of a loss:rolleyes:

    OR.

    if PATs win out and Texans lose their first Playoff game the AFCC is at Foxboro
    ( assuming PATs win their first playoff game )

    re: Ravens lose!!

    I like the confidence! I agree that Houston losing a 3rd game is unlikely. But I also expect that if the Pats beat Houston tomorrow, the Pats won't lose any of their remaining games.

    re: Ravens lose!!

    Its interesting watching some of the fast starters fade this season - in both the AFC and NFC.

    Even though they have been sneaking games, the Texans, Falcons, Bears and Ravens have been struggling down the stretch.

    I'lll be real interested to see how Houston handles the pressure tomorrow night - they've had many seasons of playing second fiddle to Peyton and the Colts and choking on the few occasions they did have to overtake them.

    At this stage of the year the pressure really ramps up.

    Ravens probably beat them in Baltimore. They need the game more than Denver does.

    re: Ravens lose!!

    Never really thought the Ravens were realistically in the race. I have been saying for a while now that the byes are a three way race between the Pats, Texans, and Broncos.

    I don't think the Pats have as tough of a stretch as people think. The Texans and 49ers have both been trending down lately. The Texans really haven't beaten anyone since the first half of the season either. They are definitely not cakewalks, but I don't think either are nearly as tough a challenge as we thought a month ago.

    I think the Texans could be the odd team out. They have the Pats and Colts twice. I can see two losses for them with their defense struggling.

    If the Pats win tomorrow night, they will have the head to head and three way tie sewn up with both the Texans and Broncos. They will have beaten both team and since all three teams played each other the tiebreaker in a three way tie would be records against each other. The Pats would be 2-0 and the Texans are 1-1 and the Broncos are 0-2.
