yes it does the team to keep your eyes on is the Bengals they are getting hot at the right time and they have a pretty decent schedule down the stretch.

It's really coming down to the Colts, Steelers, Bengals, and maybe the Chargers and Dolphins for two spots. The good news the Colts are on top of the mountain right now but the Colts probably have the hardest schedule remaining of those teams. With that said if they beat the Titans at home and beat KC on the road that probably puts them in.

I was just going to post that about the Bengals. I think we lose in Detroit and Houson. KC on the road is going to be tough but a must win. Hope that Houston is resting players at the end of the season, and we may squeak in.

I really think if we just take care of business in the two games that we should win in the Titans game and KC game we get in. It might be as the six seed but it's in. It's going to be really hard for two AFC Wildcard teams to get to ten wins and one of them not be the Colts. The Bengals or the Steelers have the best shot at it but they still have to play each other so I don't see both doing it and both still have to play the Ravens. Miami and the Chargers would to win out to do it and I just don't see that in fact if the Chargers lose to the Ravens today they might very well be out of it. Honestly Miami and Chargers are just kinda hanging on IMO and it's really a three team race for two spots and with two of those teams in the same division I don't think both will make it which improves the Colts chances.

Yeah, it's ours to lose or win. SD is still a threat. But the Bengals are coming on. I don't think we have an easy game left. KC gave the Broncos all they could handle today. Still, if at the start of the season someone said we'd end up 7-9, I would have said they were crazy.

This is quite true the "good" things about the remaining schedule is the two teams have to play each other.

Well no game in the NFL is easy but the Colts SHOULD beat the Titans at home and KC on the road. If they don't you can easily say the Colts don't deserve to be a playoff team. Those are games that if you are playoff team you have to win.

Keep in Denver is a divisional foe of KC. I look at that no different than when the Jags would play us close when they were having a bad season and we were having a good season. Divison games aren't always the best look at what a team really is. With that said we have our own division foe left on the schedule who would love nothing more than to be the team that knocks the Colts out of the playoffs in the Titans.

More importantly, the Bengals won and are one of the hotter teams in the AFC.

Dalton is playing as well as any QB in the league over the past few weeks.

realistically....the Colts HAVE TO BE ahead now..because of the two games with Houston where we'll probably be 10-point underdogs...

..and that game at Detroit is a big worry

Denver's win streak may force Houston (which could lose to NE) to play the regulars in that final game of the season...

..but we have 7 wins and 10 gets us in....Its a good place to be

at this point the only way we don't make it is if we don't deserve it. We should be in there, we have a padded lead now. We need to win ONE game we shouldn't. I'm counting on W's against Titans and Cheifs. Need one more for a clinch. We beat detroit we're going.

SD plays Cinci next week that should be an interesting game especially if SD can get this OT win.

SD is not a good team. This isnt even the classic underachieving Chargers. They just arent very talented on top of being poorly coached.

Cincy should handle them.

The way I see it shaking out is:

Colts (9-7) -- 6th seed

Steelers (9-7) -- maybe 10-6? -- 5th seed

Bengals (9-7)

Chargers (7-9)

Dolphins (7-9)

I have you guys losing to Detroit and getting swept by Houston, but Detroit is a winnable game and no reason to think you can't pull one out against Houston if you play well. Never know in a division game what could happen.

To me Bengals have a tough schedule + they play the Steelers again.

@ Chargers

Cowboys

@ Eagles

@ Steelers

Ravens

I definitely foresee a couple losses, Colts will probably lose a couple more as well. I just think they really need to take care of business vs the Titans and Cheifs. We have no idea which Lions team will show up and also who knows if the Texans will rest some players at a place they have a very difficult time winning at in Indy.

Things are looking good so far but just gotta take things week by week and put all their focus on figuring out a way to beat Detroit.

We will win one of those Texans games.

I'm guessing it'll be the Dec. 30th home game.

      Between the thread title and the OP's first post,  as well as the other posts the question being asked (and reason for the thread) is obvious. 
    • Seen Any Good Movies Lately? Rental Or New Release...Share Your Insights/Reviews Please...
      Did you ever watch a dark romantic comedy that just collapsed or imploded on it's own face? Well, I just did & this epic 2015 disaster is called appropriately "Trainwreck." Hey, look on the bright side, it's known as foreshadowing right? For starters, this 2 hour & 4 minute picture directed by Judd Apatow is too darn long. Second, in the interest of full disclosure, I have never found comedian Amy Schumer funny. I have listened to some of her standup routine & I stare at my watch waiting for an eternity for her to say anything remotely humorous. It's admirable that she tries to address the concerns of women that are full figured with meat on their bones wider than a supermodel toothpick sure. However, she's just not a woman who has ever made me laugh. Plus, Amy's dialog in this flick is too sexually centered in scope with almost nothing else redeeming about her character. Just in case you were wondering, yes Amy is related to NY Senator Chuck Schumer in real life too. Third, Amy's co-star in this film Bill Hader gave a much better performance in "The Skeleton Twins" than this piece of trash. Fourth, director Judd Apatow known for the tremendous TV show 'Freaks & Geeks' completely missed the mark here. The script is too predicable & can be seen from a mile away. Judd you're so much better than crap like this man come on dude seriously.    This flick is like a raunchy version of "When Harry Met Sally" except without the sharp wit of Meg Ryan & Billy Crystal. Only this time, the opposites attract are between a doctor & a writer for a tabloid magazine like Cosmopolitan filled with articles about sports, finding the perfect mate, & favorite sexual positions etc. etc.    Plotline: Amy Townsend [Amy Schumer]  lives in the Big Apple as a writer for a pathetic relationship ship magazine. Hey, since her character's last name is Townsend, does that mean she is the offspring of Who guitarist Pete Townsend? No, but it's the 1st question that popped into my head though. Amy sleeps around a lot & she basically an alcoholic. There's a reason for that. At a young age, she had her father Gordon [Colin Quinn] explain to her & her sibling Kim [Brie Larson] why their parents were breaking up & getting a divorce. Basically, Gordon used a doll analogy to tell his girls that he cheated on their mother, got thrown out the house, & that a committed relationship with 1 other person for a long time was unnatural & should be avoided at all costs.    Because of this misguided pearl of wisdom, Amy went thru a number of 1 night stands like chewing gum. Her sister Kim chose to settle down, buy a house, get married & have a son. All that changed for Amy when she is forced to do a feature magazine article on the sports medicine doctor & flawless surgeon to superstar athletes like Lebron James & Amar'e Stoudemire named Dr. Aaron Conners [Bill Hader]. Thru the course of writing the article, Dr. Conners & Amy do sleep together, but she is petrified because she has never dated such a smart & kind boyfriend before. She starts to feel genuinely happy for the 1st time in her life so Amy decides to sabotage the chemistry they have together by blowing Aaron off to take a call from her editor as he is giving a speech accepting a prestigious award for his charity work as a member of Doctors Without Borders giving life saving medical care to the poor & disadvantaged in war torn countries abroad.    As a result, Amy fights with Aaron wondering why such a sweet, well adjusted guy likes & even claims to love her. They argue throughout the night, which prevents Dr. Conners from being able to carry out a vital knee surgery the next day. They decide to part ways & shortly thereafter Kim sadly informs her sister that their beloved father Gordon has passed away. This earth shattering news forces Amy to stop drinking, refrain from smoking pot anymore, & she gets Dr. Conners feature article spotlighted in a reputable periodical called Vanity Fair. Amy mails a copy of the magazine directed to Aaron's team office for the NY Knicks & this noble gesture prompts Dr. Conners to start seeing Miss Townsend socially again. Amy ultimately wins her man back by doing a cheerleader floor routine on the court at Madison Square Garden. She fails to use a trampoline properly, but it's okay because this athletic blunder cements their romantic relationship permanently.    There is some nice cameo work by Lebron James in this picture. Both he & Bill Hader have some comical brief moments together interacting on & off the basketball court like 2 brothers watching each other's back even though they are not blood relatives perse.    How do I grade "Trainwreck" as a film? The plot had no twists or turns in it, I just don't find Amy Schumer lovable as a character in any way, shape, or form, there were a couple of memorable lines in it that I can't repeat on a PG based family  forum,  & as a completed work there was virtually no depth or lasting gravity here. In addition there is a sex scene with an underaged magazine intern employee that quite frankly didn't need to be seen or acted out at all IMO. Very tasteless. I get why it used as a mechanism to get Amy fired in the storyline, but it was beyond stupid & totally unnecessary for a widespread audience to visualize up close & personal. I was gonna give this picture an F, but since I enjoyed watching LeBron James & Bill Hader toy with 1 another on screen, I will bump my grade up to a D-. Like the title suggests, skip this 'Trainwreck' at any & all costs.
