Problem is, we're not even guaranteed a playoff berth yet, let alone the division title. Furthermore, we get to play a team that matches up extremely well against us next week, then get to play a road game four days later, and then get to play against another division rival on the road. We could just as conceivably lose out as win out, and I don't like the feeling.
With a Steeler loss and San Diego win, the #3 seed is now kinda up for grabs; only a one game lead over the Chargers. Good thing they swept the division.
3-0 = #3.
2-1 still pretty much guarantees them the #3.
1-2 and this is where it gets dicey. #3 is a remote possibility, but a WC spot is probably more likely. Toss up if it would be the #5 or #6.
0-3 ~~ backing into the playoffs and at best a #6. Yeah, I know, but this ain't '05. Likely road trip to S.D. in R1 with a road trip to Foxboro again if they manage to beat Turner and the Bolts.
