    regardless of seeding I think Pats make AFCCG this year.

    If 3 I see it like 2006.

    We will win our home game, then win divisional on road. Then perhaps put up a surprising fight in road AFCCG against either KC or Chiefs but just fall short.

    Impossible to say. There are some guys on this squad that have come up HUGE in the biggest of situations in the past (#11, White, HT, Brady, Gronk, Harmon...). So DO a few of those guys have a key play or two in key spots in January to make something happen ?

    Maybe, maybe not. I feel a little like BB atm : what happened in the past has no bearing...

    I’d be pleasantly surprised to see NE accomplish something this postseason. But autumn 2018 has given me very little hope to believe they can go on a consistent run.

    Weirdly : had they won last night, they’d have beaten ALL division leaders (though Pitt would have fallen out of the lead). That is strange considering the inconsistency we’ve witnessed.

    Hope you’re right, but I just don’t see it. Bad run defense combined with a OL that is struggling in pass pro and a receiving corps that can’t get open consistently even as one guy is getting the attention of 3 guys on defense is not a good combo for postseason success.

    Houston is not winning at Philly Sunday so we will get the bye.

    Look at it this way, of the six AFC teams currently in the playoffs, only three of them have QB's with playoff experience-Patriots, Steelers, Charger (Ravens, I assume, will continue starting their rookie QB). We are the highest seeded of those 3.

    If Baltimore gets the 6th seed we're probably not even winning a playoff game.

    I would like to agree with you and will try to be optimistic but I am afraid this team doesn't have it. Beating the Bills and the Jets should be easy but somehow this team will find a way to struggle. OL won't hold back the charge of Buffalo. The DL won't stop the run of Allen. Too many penalties. Dropped balls. Missed passes. INT. Stupidity. Whatever it will be they will find a way. Why because that has been this season. Maybe the Jets will have a great day with a play like Miami.

    After that we should be on the road. During the season we were 3 and 5, why should that problem change?


    Go Pats

    Will Gus Edwards burst an 80 yard TD run on the first play?

    It could easily happen but the Patriots will be one of the least talented teams in the playoffs, you can't feel super confident about beating anyone even at home.

    I won't be shocked if they get to the AFCCG or if someone comes into Foxboro as a big underdog and upsets them, if Brady doesn't play lights out this team is super vulnerable.

    This team has much to fix to turn things around. One game at a time.

    To be honest, the tie breaker situation regarding LA has the playoff picture REALLY murky right now. The 1 seed is mathematically possible but as unlikely as you can get otherwise. The 2 seed is still a major possibility, but some things have to fall just right.

    Things will be a little clearer after next week I think. Let's get the division locked up, see where the chips fall going into week 17, and go from there. The AFCCG is a long way off either way.

    If they get the bye hopefully we get Houston or Pittsburgh and KC gets the Chargers.

    I can see Indy or Baltimore winning and Houston and ending up at KC.

    If we are 3 and Houston is 2 , which is the most likely scenario if we are playing wild card weekend, it’s certainly doable. Though if Baltimore is the 6 seed we will have our hands full even at home. Unlike Pitt and others, Baltimore is committed to running the ball and wont fall into the trap of throwing instead of just gashing our run d. But if we get past them or whoever gets the 6 seed I would probably actually expect a win @ Houston

    I think it will be a miracle for this to happen this year, with the the Pats playing the way they are. We might win a home playoff game (in fact, we probably will because we play really well at home), but if the next game is on the road, that's where it will end this year. I hope I'm wrong, but our boys look defeated out there already, like they know they don't have it this year.

    We can't assume we will win both of our remaining two. I only feel about 80% confident we will win both, in fact.

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s to never count BB and Brady out prematurely.

    You guys have a legit shot at anything in the playoffs with those two
