Aside from the chance to win the division..playing the Texans twice in the last three games of the season is that win, lose, or draw we won't have that competitive drop off going into the playoffs..They will be better tested and the memory of playing a playoff team will be fresher in their memories going into January..

Agreed?

....I would agree if we make the playoffs....If we lose 2 to Houston and at KC...we're not going to make it...

everyone assumes we're in....not yet

That's true, it's just like Arians said to the Houston media, "We haven't done anything yet" KC will not be an easy game because the KC crowd is very loud and nuts. If we had Manning, I wouldn't worry as much about KC because he studies so hard and can pick them apart so easily. Luck, can do that I think too but he is more of a gunslinger and I think vs. KC that won't be as effective, and I think Romeo Crennell will game plan to attack Luck all day. Hopefully Andrew can exploit the blitz packages (or better yet, just identify them). We can't get down to KC by a couple TDs , they still do have some firepower.

chris..

I'm just hoping we dont get anybody beat up Sunday at Houston....that would cramp us for the must-win KC game

we have very few backups on O-line and at running back....

Bruce Arians is right..and so are you about Romeo...KC has more talent than a 2-11 team...should ....and that will be their final home game

It's nearly impossible for the Colts to not get in the playoffs at this point. In fact, I think the only way they don't get in is if they lose all 3 and the Jets win out and there is no way the Jets win out.

Well, I do have to agree that I like the competitive edge going into the playoffs, IF we make it. I would certainly take a rigorous schedule over the Jags twice in the last 2 weeks, which would prime us for a first round exit.

I hope you're right about the Jets...but check into that..they think they will..just signed Braylon Edwards..

...The Jets play Tennessee, San Diego and Buffalo......they'll be favored (not by much) to beat all 3

we are huge underdogs against Houston.......it may all be on the line at KC on the 22nd

I doubt they'll be favored to beat all 3. In fact, I think we'll clinch this weekend even if we get trounced by Houston. The Jets play @ Tenn. and I think Tenn. will take care of the Jets rather easily. If the Jets somehow pull it out this weekend, the Chargers will torch the Jets. Anyway I see it, I don't think there is anyway we don't make the playoffs. I'm pretty confident we'll handle the Chiefs regardless of what the Jets do anyway, but I have a good feeling the Jets will clinch our playoff spot for us.

I wouldnt count on Tennessee for much..


a Jets loss does not clinch a playoff spot for us if Cincy and Pitt win///

The Jets aren't the only team we need to worry about - definitely not the only way we miss the playoffs. They could be eliminated and we still have to worry about the Bengals & Steelers (both better teams than the Jets) taking the two Wild Card spots.

umm if Cinci and the jets both lose this weekend even if the colts lose, the colts get the playoff bid whether its 5th or 6th seed because of tie breaker over cinci would be conference wins and cinci is already at 5 losses with 1 more to go against pittsburgh and 1 against baltimore and the jets would be at 8 losses and its impossible for the colts to even get 8 losses now with 3 games remaining. so if both lose the colts are in automatically.

Pittsburgh and Cincy play each other a week from Sunday and one has to lose so neither of those teams really affect our playoff chances very much at all. Both can't win out and thats what it would take to knock the Colts out of a playoff spot. That is simplifying it a bit, I know, but essentially the Jets are the only team the Colts need to worry about.

we lose ALL tiebreakers scenarios with the Jets...

..even if Cincy loses to Phily...if they win their last 2 they are 9-7 with 5 AFC losses....

If the Colts lose their last 3 ...they are 9-7 with 6 AFC losses....

If we finish in a 3-way tie with the 9-7 Jets and 9-7 Cincy...we are out....


///But to simplify things..yes...it helps a ton if the Jets simply lose like we know they know how to do

If they Jets win at Tennessee and we lose at Houston...we have reason for concern

Well, the chances of the few scenario's that would knock the Colts out of the playoffs, are almost astronomical at this point. Could it happen? Sure, but the chances are overwhelmingly tiny.

The best thing is it will all be in a dome, and hopefully all during the 1 p.m. ET time slot, where we seem to be most comfortable. :)

You should read the KC boards. They hate RC and their quarterbacks. I can bet you any money that the day KC plays the Colts and Luck their board will be overflowing with praise and jealousy for Luck.

KC is not going to win that game. Them and the fans want their season to be over.

well i never said the Bengals would lose lol. i was just pointing out that IF they and the jets lost this weekend the colts wouldnt have to win. although id prefer the colts win out anyway.would sure shut up alot of texan fans who claim that the texans are the " kings of the south " and will " dominate " the division for years to come.

How about we just beat the Texans on Sunday and we don't have to worry about making the playoffs anymore and can start talking about what happens if we win the division ;)

Colts have done much better than I thought they would. There's a chance Colts can win their div but I don't see it. As long as the Colts win at least 1 of their Final 3 they'll make the playoffs

    'possibly' having a re-do on my right eye tomorrow depending on the risk. It is still too far-sighted. I am too young to not have it done with a better script. Hoping it is easy...may have stitches this time with bigger incision.
