CR91

5 teams, 3 spots

Recommended Posts

With the broncos losing to the 49ers, that basically takes them out of the race for the playoffs. Another loss that helps is the raiders beating the steelers dropping them to 7-5-1. Right now, the only teams that are basically locks for the playoffs are the chiefs, patriots, and Texans.

 

Colts, Ravens, Dolphins, and Titans are 7-6 with the Steelers being 7-5-1

 

Remaining games for each team

 

Colts

 

Vs Cowboys

Vs Giants

At Titans

 

Ravens

 

Vs Bucs

At Chargers

Vs Browns

 

Dolphins

 

At Vikings

Vs Jags

At Bills

At this point, I think Pittsburgh may be sitting at home come Playoff time. They could easily lose two more games with how they've looked so far.

 

Yo this is a developing story worth watching.

Well we play Dallas next and we have to win that game. It will be tough because a Dallas win and they win the NFC east. We win we stay alive, we lose and...

Final spot will probably come down to week 17 in Nashville I have a feeling

Today was close to perfect for the Colts' playoff chances.

 

My hunch is, Pittsburgh is the team that ends up falling out. They're in that 7-win group (with a tie), but have a brutal schedule remaining: vs. Patriots, then at New Orleans, before finishing against the Bengals.

 

I think Pittsburgh finishes 8-7-1, and Baltimore overtakes them at 9-7. Chargers got one Wildcard spot locked up. My gut is telling me the final Wildcard spot is going to come down that Indy @ Tennessee game to end the season (which should be flexed to Sunday Night Football).

If the Steelers lose to the Pats and Saints, the Colts could lose to Dallas and still get in at 9-7.

Just a reminder.......

In 2006, after getting embarrassed by the Jags, we rebounded to beat the Texans 27-24.  It was 2wks sfter the Jags game instead of following week, but still.... it got me thinking.

Steelers play NE next week and still play the Saints too, they will lose both probability wise. You may be right?

Steelers won’t make the postseason. They’re playing terrible football right now. Plus, they have Patriots and Saints next two weeks. Colts just have to win out. The rest will take care of itself

Thanks for posting this, for what it's worth, Houston hasn't locked the south just yet.  I do understand it's very likely but still notable.

Roethlisberger came back at the end.

 

Lamar Jackson got hurt at the end in KC.

I fear Joe Flacco more than Lamar Jackson. If we win out then that takes Tennessee out of the conversation. Baltimore won't beat the chargers. Steelers lose the next 2. Titans schedule is soft except for us. Dolphins have a cake schedule except for @Minnesota. next week against Dallas will be tough.

Flacco is still out.  If Jackson is injured, they both could be out.

 

At this point, I would rather see Flacco, though.  They've been playing better with Jackson.

I am just glad the cowboy game is at home. With two out of the three games at home I like our chances.

Jackson says he's fine...for what it's worth.

I agree it is very possible the ravens win the division and the Steelers miss the playoffs.

 

 

We just need to win all three and I think everything will work out. If we win all three only losing one game the second half of the season is a amazing accomplishment. I think this team can be dangerous in the playoffs if we did make it. We have proven we can beat  the top teams in the league. It will be interesting playing two NFC teams to see how we stack up against the other conference.

Allot of you are saying we are in if we win out.   I totally agree, but don't think we do that.   I think we can win 2/3 and get in.  Of course one has to be the Titans.  

I think Dallas is very good.  That will be a game we will need help to win.    The Giants are playing good ball too.

we're not losing to the Boys.  I seriously think our Run D stops them.  It is so under-rated.  And i don't think Dak can beat us.

If we are lucky the titans will be eliminated by time we play them.

I like us against anybody in the NFL at home..

..and Tennessee isnt as good on offense or defense as Houston is

 

Sunday's win was the key......we needed to go 10-6 and now, we will

I don't agree with that.  Dak had all day today behind that line.   Their "D" also has looked great lately.

You guys' lack of faith in our team baffles me.  We are not only going to beat the Cowboys,..We're going to beat them by more than 2 TD's. Our front 7 stops the run like no-ones business. That's the Cowboys only way to win. Dak is not good under pressure, and ever since Eberflus got out from under a rock and threw a few more blitzes in each game, we get to QB's now. They won't score 17.  And Luck picks apart zone defenses.

Amari Cooper looks like a top 3 WR after coming to Dallas.

 

We might stop Zeke, but can we stop Cooper? I don't think our CB´s are that good :(

 

It will be a fun game to watch though

I am starting to think the Cowboys are due for a stinker. I am glad they won tonight because it's easy to even have a let down after a huge win like they had tonight. We have at worse a 50/50 chance beating them and we are at home. Have to see if TY is healthy and Kelly is back 1st.

lol to the Steelers playing the Pats and Saints. Bengals for the final game won't be any pushover either, thats always a tough divisional game.

 

I could see the Colts and the Ravens getting in knocking Pit out.

We don't have to stop Cooper,..just have to get into Dak's face.  And we've proven we can do that against the past few teams we've played with a couple extra blitzes.  Our D-line has been playing lights out lately.

We’ve definitely got some Cowboys fans on the forum masquerading as Colts fans...  I expect to see them wearing Cowboy jerseys next Sunday...  And for all the ones hyping Vander Esch over Leonard, LVE was getting abused today by Philly while The Maniac had 9 more solos, another sack, and an amazing pass defense against Hopkins to prevent a touchdown...  The DROY plays for the Colts.

    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change. 
    • I had us going 10-6 and winning the AFC South. I knew with Luck back we'd be at minimum .500, and I thought by adding Nelson, Ebron, and Cain, our O would be pretty decent, and enough to take the South. We were 10-6, but didn't win the South.  I wasn't counting on our D being as good, so I guess they overachieved. Honestly I'm still not sold on our D. This year will be a much bigger test.
    • There appears to be a possibility that the Pacers acquire 31-year-old Eric Gordon, the shooting guard for the Rockets.   Houston wants Jimmy Butler but they don't have cap space to sign him. The 76ers would have to sign Jimmy and trade him to Houston. But Houston cant send the 76ers matching salaries because Philadelphia already has to sign Tobias Harris, JJ Reddick and soon Embid and Ben Simmons..   So the 76ers and Houston have to find a third team who could acquire some salary. In the theory of this trade: That team would be the Pacers who would take the final year of Eric Gordon's contract at $15 mil   Obviously, Gordon is an IU grad and Indianapolis native. He comes off the Houston bench behind Chris Paul and James Harden. 16.2 per game last year and 16.7 for his 11-year career..   Forgetting how crazy Houston's locker room would be with Paul, Harden and Butler, is there a downside to acquiring Gordon, who would start until Oladipo returns? We might have to give up next year's No.1 pick.
