    Tiebreakers over Houston and Ravens

    Looks like we are angling for a #2 seed, at least, as we have tiebreakers over Houston.

    If we only lose to Philly (the supposed hardest game) and Houston loses once more, we will have the same record against the AFC and we will be 4-0 against common opponents and they will be 3-1 (loss to Oakland). Or, if we lose to somebody else and Houston loses to an AFC team (only Atlanta from the NFC left on their schedule)

    #1 Seed is a little harder. Ravens need to lose 1 and tie the Steelers (who will hopefully lose at San Francisco or at least one other game).  If the Ravens and Steelers and Patriots lose the same amount of games, Ravens win the NFC North.  If the Ravens lose to the Chargers, we win that tiebreaker (also assuming we both win on our second bye week against Indianapolis).

    #2 looks likely, #1 looks like at least 50/50.

    With 7 games to go the math can change from week to week...suffice to say last nights victory keeps us in the hunt for a bye. If the Pat's come ready to play for the remainder of the year and win out which is not a certainty but given the strength of ther remaining oppnants is well within the realm of probability, if they do, they'll finish @ 13-3 with two losses in the AFC with only Pittsburgh having a clear advantage....Lot's of ball yet to be played.

         I don't think you're right. If the season ended today, Houston would own the #1 seed. You're forgetting that the Texans beat the Steelers, earlier in the season.
