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.

    •   You're partially correct. Some of what I am saying (and have said) does walk the line of politics. However, while it might be easy to lump everything together; it does not all fit in the same box.    A lot of what I am talking about is a deep emotional connection to a football team.   I am trying very hard to walk the line about what is acceptable to discuss on this forum, and the waters can get very muddy. I do believe my statements holds true. Ignoring a lot of things happening lately won't fix anything. A person has to take action, within the confinements of the rules, and also within the parameters of moral values.   I believe the same can be said for political reasons or for undesired results of the product on the field. In my mind, the product on the field is not a reason for scaling back emotional investment. However, the politics obviously hit a different nerve for some of us. Not everyone will agree on these issues. It is also very tough to balance them once we understand a persons position.   Nevertheless, actions through participation or lack of participation speak very loud. it is a bottom line business, and it takes both active fans and talented players for the marriage to work.

    • Or maybe, just maybe he saw an opportunity to get into the top 10 for next years draft, AND get a new head coach, AND then have a healthy Andrew Luck. I will reserve my judgement on Chris after next year's off season. That will be the most crucial off-season of his career. 
    •     Sorry, I reread your OP, and I understand what you're saying.  My bad.   Ok, so you are saying that CB could have chosen a more favorable GM position with a different team last year.   I don't know.  At this point, I'm looking at the Colts situation compared to the other teams CB could have chosen... probably top-3 pick in every round of the draft, the most cap-space in the league, and oh yeah what could be the best QB in the league when healthy...   Could anyone starting out as a GM really ask for a better scenario?
