    (For those disagreeing, look into the subjects of both MATH and LOGIC)

    We have basically clinched the bye week already (Seed 2 minimum, SEVEN years going on EIGHT in a row.. 2010-2016 and counting)

    We will finish above Miami, clinching seed 4
    AFCS sucks they will finish below us, we clinch seed 3

    AFCW and AFCN both have major attrition internally with all our competition for the two bye week spots.

    It is at least 50/50 (probably higher) that either AFCW or AFCN winner will fall below us, just by the odds, and the fact that they have tougher division games.

    So we have seed 2 already.

    Seed 1 very likely.

    Dear Football Gods,

    Please do not punish my beloved Patriots for this piece of hubris.

    Yours worshipfully,


    Mike

    So I take it the only Pats football you watched this year was the 1st half of the NO game.

    I suggest investing in NFL Gamepass to see the other 75% of Pats football so far. It might give you a different(and more reality based) opinion.

    it is really not "hubris". It is more just commentary on how the AFC itself right now really favors the Pats, based on how the good teams are bunched together in those 2 divisions. If it were reversed and the Bills and Jets were as good as the AFCW teams, it would obviously be the reverse. This thread would be true even before week 1 started.

    I've watched every play so far, your point is irrelevant.

    It was true before game 1. It is just math.

    It's called MATH and LOGIC. Check those out when you get a chance.

    In 2015 the Pats were 10-0 and "basically guaranteed" the #1 seed. Then they went 2-4, and you probably know the rest of the story.

    And honestly the week11 2015 Patriots offense was arguably healther than the 2017 Patriots offense is in week3.

    Any impartial analysis of the situation would recognize that the Pittsburgh-New England game later this season will go a very long way towards determining a 1st round bye, although both those team will benefit if the AFC West beats each other up

    they got the 2 seed in 2015. that 2 seed was essentially guaranteed minimum seed before that season even started. thank you for proving my point though.

    Going into the playoffs with only 2 games, how we never thought about that? We can limit the injuries big time with this approach. Oh Gronk couldn't make it 2 games without an injury so he goes banged up but still better than IR.

    It's just math and logic. The actual football piece is of little consequence in the current state of the AFC... What has been our minimum seed 2010-2016 (seven straight seasons) hmmmmm
