    As of now, there are three 10-4 AFC teams. Any could wind up as the 5th seed, beat the 4th seed, then travel to Foxboro.

    There also are 4-5 teams in the 7-7 to 9-5 range with a shot at a division championship (depending on whether you include the Raiders or not). Any could wind up as the 4th seed and beat the 5th seed, thus earning a trip to Foxboro.

    Things will become clearer later, of course. But right now the Patriots have at least 6 different plausible Divisional Round opponents.

    pretty simple... the chiefs should hold serve and win the west.. indy may stub toe in oakland , and jax could get back in there and balt and the jets are pretty much locks- that being said kc is the third seed, indy/jax the fourth, balt and the jets are 5 and six... so we will play on that sunday, jets, balt or indy/jax- out of those four i dont want balt... im hoping for a jax pull out the south, upset baltimore , kc beats the jets, we play jax, kc plays pitt- pitt vs pats afc title game...

    If I was putting money on it, I imagine we'll be playing Baltimore or the Jets. Could you imagine, Divisional Weekend and the games are Pitt/Balt and NE/NYJ? The NFL and networks would cream their pants.

    That would mean both wild cards win on the road in week 1, which is rare.

    Yes, however I don't have alot of faith in the Chiefs winning their first playoff game. They remind me of the 08 Falcons; a good young team who is not really ready for the spotlight yet.

    And Jax/Indy could easily lose to the Jets. I have no faith in the Jags whatsoever, and Peyton could revert back to the INT Machine at any time.

    It's going to be the Colts. The Ravens put up a pathetic performance against them every post-season.

    Jets (6) @ Chargers (3) = Chargers
    Ravens (5) @ Colts (4) = Colts

    Colts @ Patriots = Patriots
    Chargers @ Steelers = Steelers

    Steelers @ Patriots = Patriots

    You read it here first.

    Chiefs are 8-0 at home.
    Indy is 5-2 but a totally different offense indoors.

    I see this exact scenario playing out. KC will lose one of it's 2 remaining home games to (Tenn or Oak) and SD will win out to take the division.

    SD grabs the 3-seed due to it's victory over Indy.

    The only thing I would change here is SD/Pitt, I think SD would go into Heinz and beat that team (Steelers are so overrated). That would set up another SD/New England title game at the Razor........That would be a tad scary given the way Rivers and that offense is now playing with VJ back, but the frozen tundra at Gillette should help us.........

    I think it will be a little different, starting with the seeds:
    1. NE
    2. Pitt
    3. KC
    4. Indy
    5. Jets
    6. Balt

    Baltimore at KC. Have to pick the Ravens.
    Jets at Indy. Indy wins.

    Therefore:

    Baltimore at NE
    Indy at Pitt
