We get the 1 seed by ...

1. Winning out (beating the NYJ in the process)
2. NYJ beating NE tomorrow night
3. NYJ are outdone by NE by NO MORE THAN 1 GAME IN THE FINAL FOUR WEEKS

In this scenario, we win the AFCN. The Jets win the AFCE (by head to head over NE). We get #1 by virtue of head-to-head over the NYJ. Note that in this scenario, NE would finish 5, playing the winner of the AFCW (probably). There is a very good chance we would get NE in that first home playoff game.


We lock the 2 seed by beating Cleveland and Cinci AND either Carolina or the Jets. There are other scenarios for the 2 seed, but that's the simplest that will guarantee the lock.

Therefore, not necessarily the best scenario for this team.

Yes, I realized that after I worked it out. It may actually be better for us to get the 2 seed and have the NYJ get the 1 (not NE).
