Colts Playoff Seeding


Recommended Posts

The Colts are currently have the 4th seed and can go no lower.  The Patriots and Broncos both lost this week so that brings our record closer to theirs.  The Bengals play the Steelers tonight and those games can go down to the final drive.  Do you think the Colts can make a push for a higher seed or will remain at #4.

I would like to win out simply to hit the playoffs with momentum. We get our D and run game going I believe we can win on the road. We need to let Luck be Luck also. Let him bootleg and throw on the run, keep the short stuff sprinkled in and let him run when given the chance. He makes a lot happen with his legs

I looked at ESPN's http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/resources/help/faq?name=how-do-playoff-tiebreakers-work

Not sure if what I'm looking at is correct or reading it wrong

...that's fantasy football.

Anyway, it goes H2H, conference record, common games, SOV, SOS, then you get into points.

Its definitely head to head and then divisonal wins.

Division record isn't a tiebreaker for teams in different divisions.

There is hope. If the raven beat the pats, we win out, and bengals win out its a 3 way tie at 11-5. Bengals 2nd seed, us at 3rd, pats at 4th. We'd then get miami quite possibly, then the chargers or ravens right behind. Then we travel to cinci. Better than going to foxborough or denver.

Probably the best situation for us.

Its still possible we could get the 3rd seed. Man i wish, because that would give us home field advantage (if we advance past wildcard) , if one of the "chosen ones" would fall early in the playoffs.

In theory we could still get home field.  I know it's not going to happen but honestly we win out and a little help from Baltimore and we could get a bye.  Still a long shot but possible.

I would be thrilled with the 3rd seed. With that, we could get a surprise home game for the AFC CHAMPIONSHIP.

This is getting good.  Bengals beat us on tie breaker but we beat NE because we have better conference record.  So next week if NE loses to Baltimore, which I expect, and we win, I believe we will actually move ahead of them in the seeding.

 

 

So that would make us the 3rd seed, right? SWEET.

Any three way tie favors the Colts.  Cincy beat Indy & the Pats, BUT the Colts didn't play the Pats so the three way head to head doesn't apply.  The 2nd tiebreaker is conference record and the Colts would have a better conference record.  Colts #2, Cincy #3, and Pats #4.  The one poster nailed it - if Indy & the Ravens win out, then we lock in the #2 seed.  In fact, the Ravens/Lions outcome doesn't matter for us as long as they beat NE and Cincy - we'd still get #2.

    • I think it depends really on how Eason or whoever is under center is looking. There’s a tiny tiny tiny tiny, did I say TINY, percent chance that Eason comes in and plays at least average for an NFL QB, Average with this team may be enough to compete for the division. Personally if it were me, if it looks like Eason is working out fine, and our record is 3/3 or 4-2, I’d ride Eason out for the season. Now if we’re 2-4 and the Titans are 5-1 or 4-2, and say the Jags or Texans are tied with them, I think I’d still ride Eason as the odds of winning the division would be minimal. So I guess what I’m saying is, it’s all relative.    interesting tidbit to keep in mind too, it’s not 70 percent of games played, it’s 70 percent of total offensive snaps. So let’s say our Offense can’t move worth crap ala Curtis painter era, and gets say 20 snaps average at QB per game, and then Wentz comes back, the offense suddenly comes alive for 40-45 snaps, it’s entirely mathematically possible for him to still play 70 percent of the snaps in the season. 
    • Depends on who’s on the board and which pick it is. If it’s the number 1 pick and there’s no super stud at QB, then I’m trading back a few picks and getting either a stud at LT or a stud at CB. Maybe a WR if it warrants it
    • I did similar, not quite as many as 10 years, then suddenly, while running a straight line, I tore my ACL, PCL and a meniscus completely, and a partial tear in my LCL. All in the same knee. Then 5 years later, tore my patella in the same knee. I can’t run distance anymore. If I get 2 miles before the fluid builds up and swells, I’m lucky. Docs say I’m looking at a full knee replacement down the road. 
    • I picked 1-2 games because I have tickets to game 3.  Selfish I know.  But If you’re going to sell fish, fluke is a good one
