I know we can play for the 1st seed, but just for the sake of discussion, what's the worst situation we can be in?

the 2nd seed is the worst case for us. We clinched our division and a bye today.
If we beat Tennessee next week and assuming we beat Cleveland, we get the #1 seed

You sure we can't fall to the 3rd seed?

Bye clinched today in Baltimore! The Jets, Dolphins and Pats are all 9-5 and cannot match our conference record. There will be a playoff game in Pittsburgh on Jan 10 or 11. Good stuff! Now that Haynesworth is out for next week I think the 1st seed is definitely in reach!

Yeah they said during the game that we clinched a first round bye.

The only way to do that is to clinch the 2nd.

The only team that can have a better record is Indy, but they cant win their division...and even if the Jets could have as many wins as us we'd win conference tie-breaker.

I forgot that the Colts can't win their division.

Doh! :oops:

At least the game here now means something.
