I agree. That would acquire two things to happen. Oakland goes on a serious run. And Bills completely collapse. I know one out of two is possible. But two out of two is asking a lot.

I doubt they can trade for anyone since the deadline passed, but not sure how trades can work in football after the deadline.

I heard they signed TJ Yates & Matt McGloin......but compared to Tom Savage that's like asking which way would you rather die: rat poison, cyanide, or drowning in quicksand. Each of those 3 choices suck, and each of those Houston QB choices suck. They are in trouble either way, and with how awful they look so far against the Colts, in much worse shape then even I thought.

Jacksonville (5 - 3) has by far the easiest schedule remaining with games against foes who have a .360 winning pct, including away games against the winless Browns and 49ers. Seattle (home) and Tennessee (away) are their only games against teams above .500, at this point.

NFL Playoff Picture

Anyone remember Denver throttling Dallas 42-17 just a month-and-a-half ago??? It sounds odd with almost half a season left, and lord knows NFL teams inexplicably show different stripes from one portion of the season to the next, if not game-to-game, but barring a major injury, I see the playoff picture pretty clear cut this year.

Division winners very likely will be New England, Pittsburgh, KC, Philly, Minnesota, and New Orleans. Only two leave a lot of doubt, though you would probably have to lean Jacksonville over Tennessee and the Rams over Seattle. Seattle did win at LA, but I see Seattle still only 50-50 to even make it as a wildcard. It will be either they or Carolina, to go along with Dallas. The AFC looks weak in comparison- I'm not particularly enamored with the way New England, Pittsburgh, and KC have played to this point, but one will surely represent the conference in the S.B. Buffalo and Tennessee should be the wildcards. Nobody behind them has the clout nor the advantageous schedule to make up multiple games in the standings in the AFC. The Ravens seem incapable, the Jets are competitive, but dug themselves into too much of a hole due to the three game losing streak- all games they easily could have won. The Raiders have a very difficult schedule, and the Dolphins are the biggest joke and farce of a 4-4 team imaginable.

yes i certainly remember that game. but it was an early game in the season, and the cowboys had a lot of issues they had to overcome both on the field and off. they were unorganized, and undisciplined. i think if that game were played today, the outcome would be much different.

dallas is getting their act together, and it is showing with their performance on the field. a few weeks ago the falcons would have beaten the cowboys handily, this week i am not so sure of that. the big thing is that the defense is finally starting to play up to their potential. the falcons still might win sunday, but they will know they were in a game.

Dallas maybe a different team if Elliott is declared out for six games.

the run game will suffer a bit, but dont forget who is backing up elliot, we start with albert morris, rod smith, and mcfaden. three very good running backs that could start on most any team in the NFL. so i am not concerned about the running game. in fact it might make the running game easier because teams likely wont be loading the box to stop elliot, which will make things easier on morris.

and remember the carry morris had in the KC game, where morris dragged a number of KC players for eleven yards before he was brought down. now that isnt indicative of how morris will play every down, but it does show that he is a very capable running back.

as i said, dont count the cowboys out just yet.

How does the AFC look "weak" in comparison to the NFC???

Outside of Philly you think there is a dominant team in the NFC??

Arguably the 2 best teams in the NFC right now Philly and New Orleans have both lost to AFC teams this season..

The Rams??? Out of their 6 wins only 2 came against teams with a winning record...

All the teams have warts.....the most complete team is Philly....

I would bet on the Final Four being New England Pittsburgh Philly and New Orleans/Seattle

In the end it usually comes down to the best QB standing which means Brady, Wilson, Brees and Roth in that order for me....
