Default Re: we might need jets to win tomorrow

I don't see the Jets winning all of their last 3 games... ( @ Tennessee / Home to San Diego / @ Buffalo ) If they lose a single one of these 3 games, then that leaves them at 8-8 for the season... ie. a win for us next week at the Pitts is good enough.

I think the Jets might win tonight, but I think San Diego is the game that they will struggle with... I do hope it doesn't come down to the Buffalo game... my nerves can only take so much .

I'm personally looking for the Ratbirds lose to NYG's... that will give us a great chance to win the Division on the final week at home (Which would be simply fantastic ), provided we do the job in Pittsburgh of course.

Put it this way, we are in a better position than Miami... from their Fans Forum, here's what position they are in...

"The Yahoo playoff predictor is back. Here's what needs to happen.
We [Dolphins] can get in with the #6 seed IF:
Pittsburgh loses at the Cowboys, beats vs Bengals and then loses vs the Browns
Bengals need to lose at Pittsburgh and then lose vs Baltimore
Jets can win against Titans or Chargers but not both, but must lose to Buffalo.
And the Phins need to win vs Buffalo and at New England."

I'd rather be us

Not sure why Indianapolis factors at all. If the Bengals win the last 2 games they are in the playoffs. So this means you are thinking about the Bengals losing a game, and the best the Bengals could do is 9-7. The worst Indianapolis could do is 9-7. I went through the scenarios, and I don't know of any that leads to the Bengals in at 9-7 due to the Colts losing. The Bengals need the Steelers and the Jets to lose if they go 9-7. If all are 9-7 (doesn't matter if Baltimore is 9-7 or 10-6), then the Ravens, Steelers, and Jets are in. If the Steelers or the Jets lose a game, they are replaced by Indy at 9-7, not the Bengals.

Unless you are thinking about getting the 5th seed over the 6th seed where the Ravens beat the Giants to win the division and the Bengals win out to go 10-6.

If the Texans beat the Vikings next week, they have home field thru out the AFC Playoffs. If the Colts beat the Chiefs, I think they clinch a wild card.

The colts don't even need a win. All they need is a NYJ loss. They could lose out and as long as 1 of the 3 teams can beat the hapless jets, the colts are in the playoffs.

Which is a shame because they really should have lost to both the Titans and the Lions.

Our chances to get into the playoffs are greater with a win over the Steelers this Sunday. And that is all we need to worry about right now.

If we beat the Steelers the only thing that needs to happen is the Jets NOT winning out.

Which will probably be a moot point by tomorrow morning.

Win and we're in against Pittsburgh, unless NYJ pulls off an unlikely winning streak.

Never underestimate how much the Texans hate the Colts. Even without starters they'd play hard to win that game. They got stuck in a division with Peyton Manning for 10 years. They're 4-17 against the Colts. I'm pretty sure they want to beat them and hurt their playoff standing if possible.

Here are the teams we need to keep an Eye on....


1 Bengals we play the steelers next week to clinch a playoff spot

2. Steelers that can leap frog us out of the playoffs next week

3. Jets They will only concern us IF they win their last 3 games nothing ive seen this year says they can do that. and that IF is IF we dont win next sunday.

Of all the luck:
Titans, Chargers, Bills

I hope none of these teams are vying for a higher draft spot.
