First of all they will get the bye.

But here is the thing. Seed 1 KC/Chargers, will likely face Seed 5 KC/Chargers, in AFC Divisional Round. (5 will likely be the lowest remaining seed in Divisional round, unless Colts, Dolphins, Balt, whoever, wins at Pitt/Balt.

So we get Pitt/Balt at home divisional (or whoever, 3,4 or 5 and only if 6 advances in wild card round as well as 5. 5 likely goes to 1.. I.e Chargers to KC). And worse case we travel to either KC/Chargers (yes tough), but I could see that other game being the upset, and we end up with a tough afccg, but at Foxboro.

Third String But Playing on Special Teams
I agree we have a great shot at the bye, but I little much to just state it as fact. If we lose to the Steelers and the Texans beat the Jets (both plausible), we're relying on them to lose one of their last two (which aren't against very strong opponents).

Not sure how you get that we'll have pit/balt at home in divisional. I'm assuming that pitt would be the 4 seed. so in wildcard weekend they're playing the chargers. if texans are 3 (most likely I think) then we would have them if they won, and if they lost we'd have winner of chargers/steelers... Right?

correct. I am saying there is a high likelihood that the Chargers will be the "worst" seed remain on Divisional weekend, and that would mean they go to KC.

Who we play, it would be either 3 or 4. It could not be 6, it could only be 5, if both seed 5 and 6 advance. (not likely)

I like your optimistic outlook.

Our best chance to play all our games at home would be for BALT to beat the AFCW champions.

I totally agree that's the only Positive that came out of that Game. Also what's the odd's of a Team defeating a Teams three Times in the same year?? I think San Diego because they have a Defense are the most dangerous Team in the AFC. With Bosa and Ingram they don't have to Blitz to get here that's the kind of D that is known to give a QB like Brady trouble.

I like the contingent of posters that say that Pittsburgh will hang 50 on the "trash" defense.

The same people said that Atlanta would do that to us last year and we won 23-7.

(I understand past performance is not indicative of future results.)

Oh don't be ridiculous...


60 at a minimum.

But if they play them in Gillette they'd hold Pittsburgh to 14. That's just who we are this year

Yes, if i were a betting man i think we are the 2 seed playing Houston in rd 2 while kc -sd battle it out. While i would prefer home field throughout, this is a better road opponents wise, and that kc -sd game is 50-50 imo meaning theres still a solid chance we host the afcc as a 2 seed if beating Houston

Teams don’t suddenly quit playing due to getting eliminated.

It’ll be in Philly, and it will be a dome team playing in cold weather.
Yeah, everyone keeps bringing the elimination thing up as if it matters. It doesn't.
