Playoff Scenarios! (excluding ties)

Seattle can clinch the NFC West Division with a win OR a St. Louis loss.

Indianapolis can do a number of things.

Playoff Spot: Win OR PIT loss coupled with either a SD loss or a KC loss.

Divison: Win AND JAX loss

First Round Bye: Win AND JAX loss AND CIN loss

Houston and San Francisco are eliminated.

NYJ is eliminated with a loss and a NE win.

TEN and BAL are eliminated with a loss and a win by PIT, SD, or KC.

GB is eliminated with a loss, or if three of DAL, NYG, TB, and ATL win. (I think their tiebreakers are slightly better than SF, which is why one is alive and one is not.)

SAINTS and ARZ are eliminated with a loss, and three of DAL, NYG, TB, and ATL winning.

You took so long putting these up this week that I almost went ahead and did it again.



And then I remembered that I am lazy.



I'll say this right here and right now: If the AFC Championship features another Colts/Broncos playoff game, I'm calling the upset. Peyton got to exercise some demons this year, so turnabout is fair play and Denver gets to slip past the Colts.

Is anyone having a better year without any noise than the Jaguars?? I'm a big football fan, but didn't even realize that they were 8-3. That's impressive.

Preach to me Jaguar !!! This Broncos team is a lot different than the one that Peyton has killed in the past - we seem to actually have a pass defense (that was noticeably absent in the final Giants drive) and we have the running game that can eat the clock and limit the time the Colts O is on the field.

The Jags while being quietly impressive are going to run into some trouble with Leftwich out with his ankle. Garrard is an unknown quality back up but they are going to have to become more of a running team than they have been this year and everyone knows how well Fred Taylor holds up to a heavy workload. Their game with Cleveland this weekend is going to be a lot tighter than it should be.

They have a tendency to play down to their opponents level and have a really easy schedule. That's why they're not making noise.

Hasn't Garrard filled in for Leftwich due to injuries before, like last season? Everything I've heard about him indicates that the Jags should do just fine with him, although I can see how the simulataneous loss of Leftwich and Taylor could be a problem. Then again, the Jags don't have that tough a schedule to close out with. Other than Indianapolis, I think Cleveland might the toughest team they play, followed by Tennesee. I could probably quarterback them to victory against San Francisco and Houston. So even with Garrard, I wouldn't be surprised for them to go 3-2 to finish 11-5, and that assumes a bad week. 12-4 is just as probable for them.

However, as pointed out, the Jags do tend to play down to their opposition. However, they've also had a rather mild schedule. They've beaten Seattle, Cincinnati (who I still consider paper tigers), and Pittsburgh (when Roethlisberger was out, right?), while losing to Denver, Indianapolis, and blowing that game against St. Louis. All this probably means they'll lose in the first round of the playoffs.

Yes. In a game that was literally single-handedly lost by his replacement. :(

Don't the Pats play the Jets Sunday, thus meaning that a NYJ loss guarantees a NE win?

Seattle's still having trouble getting credit for what they're doing. Yeah, they've had some lucky breaks, especially against Eli and the Giants. But they've got the leading rusher and best offensive line in the NFL, a rookie of the year candidate in Lofa Tatupu, and a defense which is second only to the Bears in the red zone. They're 10-2, leading the NFC, and went on a winning streak even when their two best receivers were on the disabled list.

And yet there are still pundits saying they won't prove themselves to be a good team until they win the NFC championship.

It doesn't help when your team is only 3-2 against teams with a winning record. Nor when your schedual involves two games against the Cardinals, two games against the 49ers, a game against Tennesse and a game against Houston. With the exception of the Cardinals (ha!) those are the worst teams in the league. The only team to have as easy a schedual is the Colts, but it's hard to knock a team that's sitting at 12-0.


Added: Oh and a game against Green Bay! There are some high school football teams that could be in the playoff race with that schedual.
