    this evening (night here...) a W against PHI could give us allready in November the Afc East Crowd

    after 11 games playied that should be a fantastic success

    imho only BUF has been an average team in our Division this year; Miami has been a dysaster (probably expected) and NYG one of the NFL disappointments

    result: end November we could clinch allready the Division

    great Patriot team !!!

    Get the T-Shirts and Champagne ready.

    It will be interesting to see the players non-chalant reaction to wrapping up the division before December.

    How about the fact that tonights game might not even matter if Buffalo loses to day then it's over.

    If Buffalo loses this afternoon (against Jacksonville, a likely possibility), then the Pats will already be division champs before tonight's game even starts.

    Of course it matters. If Pittsburgh wins out and we also lose this game and, say, the Giants, we are no longer the #1 seed.

    That's the scenario I envision. Buff has little chance against Jax. I'd like to think we'd do it ourselves tonight, it's just not likely.

    However, it'll be pretty impressive to clinch the division before completing 65% of the season :singing:

    Sorry guys, I really can't see you winning this game. A.J. Feeley is going to leave it all out on that field and no one will be able to stop him. Good luck, you're going to really need it.

    Yeah, you're right. I just called the boys up and we're not even going to bother going to the game.

    As my distingushed colleague godef stated, We don't even need to win tonight, all we need is a Buffalo loss.

    Of course HFA is still up for grabs.

    Re: This evening we can be allready AFC East Champs

    Actually, we would still be the 1 seed. We would need to lose at least 3 games for us to not be the one seed. We win the tie-breaker with Indy and Pittsburgh already had 3 losses. If we lose 2 games and Pitt and Indy win out, Pitt is #3, and we win the tie-breaker with Indy.

    Edit: Nevermind, i'm an idiot

    I believe 2-3 teams have clinched in week 11 (I'm omitting bye weeks since they are all done).

    I do not know if a team ever locked it up after 10 games without taking the field (or notwithstanding a week 11 loss).

    I mentioned this last week. Buffalo is currently losing and Jax just picked off Losman. If Buffalo loses, we are division champs.

    This is insignificant except only in how early this happened. Is this the earliest division clinching in NFL history, or at least since the merger? Otherwise this was a foregone conclusion of the highest order.

    HFA might not be clinched until mid December. As for a first round bye, if we are 13-0 after beating Pittsburgh, that would eliminate all except Jacksonville and Indianapolis as contenders for the top two seeds. Should Jax lose a game along the way (we don't play Jax and I don't want to get into strength of victory and all that crap three weeks before the fact), by that time we should have a first round bye wrapped up (should Jax not lose a game by that time, they could still tie us at 13-3 and that's where the exotic tiebreakers would come into play). Jax being 10-3 in three weeks is not likely since next week they have to play at Indianapolis (and the week after we play PIT at home, Jax plays at PIT).

    Again, here were talking "WHEN will we clinch" a 1st round bye, not "will we clinch".

    He always leaves it on the field. He just can't remember to pick it up and bring it to the next game.
