    That would be quite the trick to get to 16-0 and be a wildcard.

    The only way that could happen is if you have three 16-0 teams in the same conference. Really, really unlikely, but possible (I think).

    Sorry guys, but under the current 32 team schedule format, it isn't possible. Why? Lets just use this year as an example.

    AFC East played AFC North
    AFC South played AFC West

    Only one team from each of those two divisions could finish undefeated since every team in the AFC East played against every team in the AFC North, and every team in the AFC South played against every team in the AFC West.

    And, of course, every team in each division played against their own division.

    Therefore, only two teams per conference could go 16-0.

    Actually, it's impossible in the current scheduling scheme.

    Consider that a conference division plays round-robin with one other division. In essense, the 4 divisions pair up into two groups to play round-robin, and there can only be one 16-0 team from either bunch, therefore no more than two 16-0 teams in a conference. And those team would get wildcard byes and can finish only 19-0 at best.

    If preseason counted, the Pats would not be undefeated.

    Impossible. You have to come in second place in your division to be a wild card and that means you didn't lose to the first place team in your division... impossible.
