Yeah, I don't see the Ravens losing this one. The Browns just added Tyler Thigpen to the roster, so it will either be him or Connor Shaw starting at Baltimore. What a difference a few weeks make. The Browns were right in the thick of it, and I thought this game would have playoff implications for them. I'm sure they'd love to play spoiler against a rival, but that will be a tall order with a 3rd-stringer in there. It's worth noting that the Ravens just lost to 4th-stringer Case Keenum on Sunday. But I can't see them losing this one at home with this much on the line to a struggling Browns team.

A Baltimore loss, Texans loss and Chiefs win would get the Chiefs in.

Well, Kansas City plays San Diego. A Chief win would mean a Charger loss by default.

Well the chiefs are not good enough due to a lack of QB so the Chargers will be in the postseason

That didn't stop them from beating San Diego the first time around at their place, or New England or Seattle for that matter. Now they're at home for the second meeting.

Alex Smith is not a franchise QB and the Chargers are hot and should win

Remember what happened the last time the Chargers were "hot". They lost three in a row including a 30 something to zero shut-out loss on the road in Miami. Rivers does have an incredibly good December record, but this game will be anything but a for sure thing.

This Chiefs/Chargers game is a total toss up game that could go to either team at this point.

I agree. At the same time, that team last year really had no business going 2-14. I mean it was pretty much the same team from the year prior. It is not surprising to see them back as a middle of the pack team.

I don't see any team in the conference beating NE. Gronk is healthy for the first time in Years and they finally have a secondary that can shut down opposing pass offenses.
