    I voted Ravens, simply because I feel like the Steelers are absolutely going to be run over. They match up horrifically with the Pats.

    Ravens for whatever reason play em tough.

    Chargers, JAX, TN, BAL and Pitt all have enough talent to give the NEP a game if they don't bring their A game.

    I voted Jags because of that pass rush.

    Obviously most people will say the Steelers. I'm leaning towards the Chargers or Jags

    Teams that can bring the heat with 3-4 rushers whilst dedicating everyone else to coverage responsibilities. I see two teams on that list: the Chargers (who I think will come out of the West) and the Jaguars. The Queefs are in free fall and cannot stop the run. The Patriots have figured out their problems, meanwhile, and would absolutely teabag them in a second meeting.

    lol the Ravens..


    Why is there no option for "nobody" ?

    Or rather "injuries".. because thats the only thing that can keep this team from the SB.

    Chargers can't win, Rivers will always make a dumb play to kill them

    Didn't say they'd win. Just the teams that would be the biggest challenge in a game and make life a little harder on Brady. Those two teams have the DNA on defense.

    With all due respect to the Steelers' impressive string of suck out wins against crummy teams, I don't see them as a legit threat. They are married to that zone defense that Brady destroys consistently.

    Jaguars look decent but I can't take Bortles seriously.

    I vote Ravens based on history. They always seem to play well at the end of the year. They have an experienced QB and a half way decent coach.

    I said the Steelers, but the Ravens always give us a hard time too. Jumpin' Joe Flacco is still throwing up those long bombs & drawing flags. The Steelers, for all their "almost" losses, have still managed to win 8 straight, just like us. Even though we usually have their number, it would be foolish to overlook them or count them as an automatic "win" as someone said in another thread. Everyone else I am not worried about (but still wouldn't take them for granted).

    The formula to beat brady has always been rush 4 and drop 7 into coverage. Jacksonville could give the offense some fits. Super important to get Hogan healthy. Gronk, Dola, Hogan, Cooks and Mitchell would be tough to stop, even for Jax .

    Ravens are hot but they have not beaten too many quality teams.

    I would have said the Ravens, except that I believe that there are much less likely to play us than the Steelers.
