Playoff home games?

Recommended Posts

From what I understand, if the season ended today we'd travel to Denver for the wild card game. If we beat Denver and move on, what are the chances we could have a division or championship game at home?

Well no chance in the Divisional Round because you would be a WC and if you got past the Divisional round than the number 6 seed would have to get to the AFCG for yo to have home field.

Houston

NE

Den

Balt

Ind

Cinn

1 and 2 get the bye. 3 plays 6 and 4 plays 5. Right.... ? So we would be at Balt

DW is right......I believe..right now..we're the 5th seed and we'd go to Baltimore

and doc is right, too....If we're 5th after 16 games..the only way we host the AFC title game is if the No. 6 seed gets there..

If we are the No. 6 seed..the home season is over..the '6' cant host any games

If Houston beats New England the standings will be:

1 Houston 12-1

2 Denver 10-3

3 Baltimore 9-4 (h2h win over NE

4 NE 9-4

5 IND 9-4

6 PIT 7-6 h2h win over Cincy 7-6

If New England beats Houston

1 Houston 11-2

2 New England 10-3(h2h) vs Den

3 Denver 10-3

4 Baltimore 9-4

5 IND 9-4

6 PIT 7-6 h2h win over Cincy 7-6

Those are the two "if the playoffs ended today" scenarios for this week.

As others have pointed out, unless the Colts win the South, the only way to have a home playoff game would be to host the #6 seed in the AFCCG.

New England

Baltimore

Indy

Pittsburgh

only way we get homefield in the playoffs as a wild card is if we play pittsburgh in the AFC championship game. the division winners get the home field over a wild card team.

to move up the seeds really fast would require Denver to start losing. The absolute best Indy can hope for is a Texans loss to either NE or Min, and then they win out, which means sweeping said Texans.

The end result would something like

NE

DEN

IND

BAL

HOU

PIT/CIN (depends on week 16 game)

Thats about as out there as Im willing to go, and its honestly really far out there.

If we ended up the season, as it is expected, with 10-6, we will have a wild-card game with Ravens. The only thing I don't know yet, if this game would be away or home. As far as I can understand the procedure, we will have to travel to Baltimore, but I think it depends on Baltimore's final record as well.

Call me crazy, but I see more chance for us beating Baltimore than beating Broncos, and if it would be @LOS...any team may lose there.

(I've tried to post a PO picture here, but it hasn't worked, anyway we only will have the perfect picture tomorrow after MNF.)

.Its funny actually, the absolute best scenario for Indy requires Houston to beat NE.

If NE and DEN lose out (including HOU@NE), the Colts win out, and HOU loses to MIN, the Colts get the #1 seed.

It will never happen, but the math is there.

    • FA will definitely be interesting especially if we don't bring back Thad. Will almost have to do something to fill his spot.
    • I think he will be a lot better than Joe Young. JMO.
    • Not sure if anyone will be  interested, but I am super excited. We are combining my 50th and my wife's 50th next year and having the trip of a lifetime by coming over to America in October and will be taking in the Jets game in New York, then coming down to Indianapolis for the Bills game at home. We cannot wait, and look forward to taking in the atmosphere of a home game.  Hopefully we will be on a winning run when we come over.  
    • Was lunch at St Elmo's Steakhouse?  That could've made a world of difference lol.     Yeah, definitely sounds lame and lack of effort.  
    • It also is implied that Boston wanted both the red carpet treatment AND a big contract offer in order to feel valued.   He never said anything about the money offered to him by the Colts (if any offer was made at all).   But he did criticize our visit and commended Arizona rolling out the red carpet for him. But then he said he was disrespected by the Cardinals likely offering him something close to the veteran minimum   The problem here is that if he and Reid and Vaccaro really thought they would be $7-$9M a year players as he said to Ed McCafferey, then they were completely duped by their agents or anyone that let them think that.   That would make them top-12 safeties by annual average. Honey Badger got $7M.   Otherwise all the guys that signed singed for less. Burnett signed for under $5M a year and he is a more well known guy than Boston generally speaking.   Based on what most of these guys signed for, there is no way Boston and Vaccaro and Reid and others were going to get even $4M a year. The guys that signed early in free agency, which is when the most dollars are spent to sign guys quickly, went for $4-$5.5M   The best these guys can hope for are contracts in the range of Mike Adams or HaHa Clinton-Dix or even Reggie Nelson.   That is $2-$2.5M a year. If Boston thought he was gonna cash in at $7-$9M then he is probably * that he is getting offered around 1/3 of what he thought he'd make. That is because he got some bad intel if he really thought he would make that.   I think Boston is a good player, but I doubt the Colts would go out and pay him more than they are paying
      Hooker. And since Hooker is making around $3.1M annually, he couldn't have expected to get crazy bank from us.   I just think if these guys want to play they are going to have to play for whatever their market is. You don't want to make $1-$3M because that is a slap in the face, then you sit the year and make nothing. Harsh reality but that is what these guys are faced with.
