If sf doesn't pound the pats Houston might not get a bye at all.

It is unlikely that the Texans will beat the colts in both games while the pats season after the 49ers is a cake walk.
Broncos also have a very favorable schedule.

All three of Houston last games are against playoff contenders. If the pats win it is most likely that the pats and Broncos will get the byes.

This year's Colts defense has been statistically bad, too but the team has somehow managed to reach a mark of 9-4 and as I said earlier they are in the running for a first round bye if they win today. I think that what is more likely is that they drop this game today, and win next week. If the Texans have locked up the #1 seed by that final week, I'll give the Colts a strong chance to reach 11-5, but if Houston needs a win to hold that #1 seed then the Colts will finish 10-6. Not bad considering they are led by a rookie who inherited a 2-14 outfit as well as having their HC sidelined due to health reasons.

I remember thinking......."Manning has no shot in Baltimore against that defense"

I still believe the Pats and Texans will get a 1st round bye

At halftime the Broncos lead the Ravens 17-0 while the Texans are up 20-10 over the Colts as that game nears the break.


The Broncos are dominating the Ravens, but the Ravens were about to make it a close game. That is, until Chris Harris took a Flacco pass 98 yards to the opposite end zone. Just as the Ravens get some offense going the Broncos defense dials up a pick-6. Great game so far. Unless you are a Ravens fan.

I know that shocked the hell out of me when he intercepted that ball and took it 99 yards the other way lol

Ravens will be lucky to get a wildcard with the way they are playing. 3 straight weeks they could have locked up the division or clinched a playoff spot, 3 straight terrible games.

Yeah, that's true. They'll be 9-5 with the Bengals at 8-6 and the Steelers possibly at 8-6 too. That is a good division. Even the Browns are playing solid football the past few weeks.

Their last 2 games is the Giants and Bengals which means they will finish 10-6

Right now the Broncos are laying the wood to Baltimore. 4 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Broncos up 31-3. I wonder what Cam Cameron is thinking right now.

I know that Flacco will catch all the heat tonight from the baltimore sports media and fans after the way he played today. And Cam Cameron is probably home laughing at the fact that the offense still is struggling with a new OC.
