Assuming Pats lose at INDY, at MIA and at NEW ORLEANS, and arrive at Houston with a 10-5 (4-2 in Div.) record on Week 17, and with the crystal ball showing New York Jets at 9-6 (4-2 in Div.), and MIA out with a 7 losses entering week 17: Pats would need to beat the Texans to go to 11-5, or if the Texans upset the Patriots, hope the Jets lose at home to the Bengals to fall to 9-7 and out of playoffs. If they were both tied at 10-6 the conference tie-breaker employed. The crystal ball is getty fuzzy as we see the Steelers playing at Gillette on Wild Card weekend.
