Does it Seem Right?
That Indy and Seattle have to go on the road to play Baltimore and Washington? Both road teams have better records. And in both cases, they're both bad road teams and the home teams are good home teams.
It just seems odd having 2 11-5 teams on the road on Wild Card weekend.
For Seattle, it's karma for beating the Saints at home in the playoffs when they won their division with a losing record...
No it isn't fair. The better record should host the game, but that will never happen because the league believes it minimizes winning your Division.

A team can't so anything except play the schedule. The Patriots and San Francisco are rewarded annually for playing in a weak division. Until that stops, division winners deserve to get in...
