Ehhh, I wouldn't count on any of those ties. I'd go with us winning followed by the jets and cinci losing.

we need to win this weekend. simple as that. we should not be happy about a wildcard at this point and only 2 games back of division. we actually control the whole situation. we win out we win the division. would it be very tough??? of course, but its possible, thats why they play the game

There is a very probably way that we will be kept out. We need to lose out first off. But then the Steelers need to win out with Cinci winning in weeks 15 and 17. If they beat the steelers we are in. The ravens could lose out and would still be in. If the bengals beat the steelers were in. Even if they lose to the Ravens. There is no need for a tie. If the Jets win out they are in. So our playoffs are far from being in the bag. The Jets have a manageable remaining schedule against the Titans, Chargers, and Bills.

I am very happy being the Wild card team. It was beyond comprehension to think that this team would be talking about playoffs at the first of the season. New GM, New Coach, New QB and 34 other new players are you kidding me. I am a Colts fan but first a realistic NFL teams. We are very fortunate to be where we are and we will strive to be competitive Sunday, but remember Houston is playing for home field advantage and the last thing they want to do is go back to New England. I am thrilled for some of your optimistic opinions, I just hope you are not devastated when your dreams do not come true.

We shouldn't worry about other teams losing, we need to worry about winning. I think we clinch the playoff spot next week against the Chiefs.

I don't see us beating the Texans, at home, after they got their butts whipped by NE.

Easy way to get in is with a win. However if we don't win what we really need is a jets loss and ravens win. Those wont officially put us in this week but at that point all we would need is a bengals or steelers loss and they still play each other so someone is going to lose at least one more. Yes I am disregarding ties.

It is actually more difficult to figure scenarios in which we MISS the playoffs.

I think we are getting ready to shock the % outta people my friends. :)

      Yes, but without that defense they lose the first game that year. Manning was atrocious. Without Bob Sanders they are 1 and done. Yes he was great against the Pats, for a single half. But he was Joe Flacco the rest of the playoffs.   Reggie never won but he got to the conference finals 7 times I believe and they lost to more talented teams every single time. If he had one other player his caliber his entire career he would have won a ring.   The greatest NBA team in history was the 95-96 Bulls who only lost 10 games all year. The Pacers split the season series with them that season and took them to 7 games in the playoffs and were winning in the 4th quarter of game 7 on the road. If Reggie had a player the caliber of Scottie Pippen to play with, he would've won multiple titles. I have no doubt about that.   Those Pacers teams just didn't have the talent to win a title in that era. But Reggie carried them further than they ever should've went. He was as fierce of a competitor as has ever stepped on a court.    And he was CLUTCH. Was Manning clutch? Or when we went into a big game did people question how he would play? No one ever questioned whether Reggie would bring it when we needed it, because he always did.   I don't expect Reggie to win on a Colts board but some of these comments about this are just plain *ic and disrespectful to a great, great athlete.

      Common sense will tell you its easier to get 5 players to play as a unit over 22.  Basketball players are not getting pounded on every play either. Just learning the playbook in the NFL is much harder than anything you have to learn in the NBA. Yes the NFL has a week to prepare but you are not factoring in the healing process in that week. It may be your opinion that a NBA title is easier to win than a super bowl but it don't make it true. In basketball you have a chance to win a series. In the NFL it's win or go home. And you think the NBA is harder? Sorry but my reply to you is "nonsense".

      Yeah its much harder. In the NFL you just have to win 3-4 games lol. And you get a week to prepare for each one.   In baseball it is much tougher but the team with the best pitching always wins.   In basketball you have to have 3 great players out of 5 starters and beat another team with 3 great starters of their own.  And you don't get a bye either. You have to win 16 games, more than baseball or football.   "All you have to do is get 3 great players" .....YEAH THATS REAL EASY! There are only 8-10 guys who play. That's the equivalent of a football team fielding a roster with at least 15 great players. Its 60% of your starting unit.   In fact its not even close.
