    Of course things are beyond our control at this point, but according to the ESPN playoffs machine, if the following plays out, Pats not only get a 1st round bye, but the #1 seed overall. Granted it’s more than likely that won’t be the case, but wishful thinking is still allowed… :)


    Week 16

    Pats over Bills

    Ravens over Chargers

    Eagles over Texans

    Saints over Steelers

    Seahawks over Chiefs


    Week 17

    Pats over Jets

    Broncos over Chargers

    Raiders over Chiefs

    The rest don’t change the outcome – Pats get the #1 seed


    Final Seeding

    #1 Patriots

    #2 Texans (assumption is they beat the Jags, otherwise Chargers/Chiefs get to sit here)

    -----

    #3 Chiefs

    #4 Ravens

    #5 Chargers

    #6 Steelers



    Long shots, but for those who wonder, yes, it is still mathematically possible.

    no chance...sorry. Raiders mail it in, they want top 2 draft pick, players checked out. no reason here. KC needs to win. this is about as much of a guarantee there is in the NFL

    Raiders over Chiefs is a pipe dream unfortunately.

    You're insane.... At no pint during this year have they shown that they can win/be the number 1 seed... Hate to say it ,but it might be the time for the rebuild every pats fan doesn't want to admit ...

    More reasonable is for PHI to beat HOU to give us the #2, and for KC to be beaten in their first playoff game. We would then have the top seed and play at home.

    If you read my post, I clearly stated that this is very long shot, borderline winning the powerball... :) . I was just curious to see if it's even mathematically possible. That's all. Nowhere did I allude that it is likely. Big difference.

    All seem doable except the Raiders game... 2 seed is very attainable assuming we don't **** ourselves any time in the next two weeks.

    So they can’t beat the bills and jets?
    That’s all they have to do if the other games fall in place.
    I would say when they won 8 of 9 to get to 9-3 they certainly looked like they could win/be the 1 seed.

    This is not related, but when I lost my two front teeth I pronounced you "Mothlotht".

    In other words, I basically sounded like the late, great Carol Vadnais:D

    To prove that I'm the most wicked smaht anonymous poster on PastFans.com between the hours of 3-4AM.....I predict:
    1) NE wins week #16
    2) NE rests all its ailing failing aging bodies......aka......TB12 clients........and gets destroyed week #17
    3) Resulting in a 10-6 record which so happens to be my preseason prediction....mocked at the time by the fangirl kool-aid swallowers and other kinds of swallowers as well

    After their week #17 bye, then the NEP playoff run can begin

    What does that have to do with the above scenarios? You’re saying we’re going to lose?

    Would make for remarkable symmetry if Lombardi#6 was delivered to us in this fashion: in 2001, Pats were the #2 seed after an 11-5 record and won multiple tight games against teams with supposedly better talent.
