How I predict the AFC playoffs will go

Same with the Texans though.  

At the time, the Colts needed that win against the Jags to stay in the playoff hunt.   Turns out it wasn't the case.  

I'm just saying that I think teams play up to their potential when it is do or die.   Or they at least do not play in a lethargic manner.  

 

Again, we'll have to see. I just don't see this game as a cake walk for the texans like a lot of others are.

I agree with you on this point.  To be honest, the Texans have a lot to play for, and the Jags don't.  The funny thing is, even if the Texans win, I'm not sure homefield is to their advantage when they play the Colts, if Luck and TY are heatlthy!

They also gave up 22 points to sam darnold. Honestly I think their defense is overrated.

How many points did the celebrated Colts defense give up to Sam Darnold? 

 

And if you watched the last game you would’ve seen how many in-game injuries to the defense (and that particularly nasty one on offense) the Texans suffered. I’m not saying the Jacksonville game will be a gimme either but come on...Blake Bortles is starting. :pokerface:

The colts are not celebrated as a top defense like the texans are and your secondary was a problem way before any injuries happened. As for Bortles, I already said this will be a defensive game. I just think the Jags defense is better especially with all the injuries you guys have to your wrs and rbs. Also Watson has been getting killed by your line.

But surely you realize how hypocritical you sound considering we beat the Jets and the Colts gave up way more points to them, right? 

And no. The secondary has not been a problem. Kareem Jackson has had a career year, Reid has balled out as a rookie and Tyrann Mathieu is Tyrann Mathieu.

and yet you guys are almost dead last in passing defense. Again Im saying this will be a defensive game. All im saying is the Jags defense is better.

Meh. Considering the hell the secondary has been through at times this season I’m not surprised. We beat them pretty handily the first time we played. Yes things have changed but I would trust Watson vs their D more than I would Bortles against ours.

Even though you're down to basically Hopkins on offense?

Coutee and Miller will be back this week. DeAndre Carter is playing. Watson can elevate guys on offense and last week was another good example of that. Our defense just couldn’t hold up on their end.

Hasn't Coutee missed like 10 games this year?

They lost at home vs us when the division was on the line

Colts are a better team than the Jaguars

I think Watson trumps the defense comparison.   He's really been quite good.   26 TD's to 9 INT's.   68% completion.  104 rating.  500 yards rushing.

Thats not the point and the texans are plagued with injuries on offense while the jags defense is basically healthy

It’s football. Guys get hurt. But if he does come back his speed and route running will be a factor as it has in the past.

Im not saying watson has been bad. Im just saying the lack of weapons and a leaky oline will cause him and the offense to struggle

I’m more concerned about the Colts winning their game. I’d love to see the Texans lose. But I’ll believe it when I see it

That’s my only concern as well. I only care about four team.

I would very much like to see your scenario play out.   Unfortunately I don't think Houston will lose.   It's a home game for the division title.   They will be playing much more motivated ball than the Jags.   They are an all around better team too.   That said, Go Jags!!

 

But never discount that Jacksonville defense

    • Thanks LOS for the pregame stuff. Go Colts!
    • Agree.  Last weeks game gave new definition to "flag" football, lol.
    • I respect Gill Brandt but I agree, Titans aren't even top 10. He is way off with that one IMO.
    • On the surface, this looks bad. However, there's always much more that we do not know.  A tiny tidbit of that is this--     He wasn't at home, but the home burglar alarm was supposedly tripped.  Police enter (probable cause stated) the residence and while looking for burglars find some powder somehow/somewhere they want to test? Does / was said item have to be in plain sight through a window for them to enter? Or can they claim they went in and were looking for bad guys when they 'stumbled upon the contraband?   Has he ever failed any NFL drug test?  Who else has access to that home besides Chung?  Chung will get a good lawyer to challenge this and there are likely multiple other issues we have no clue about.  It's cloudy enough I doubt the NFL does anything, at least for the near future.   Another grey area, this matter seems to be under the NFL substance abuse policy and not the personal conduct policy.   If so, this is an excerpt from a connected article covering it-   "First, nothing can be done until the charges are resolved. The league can’t, and won’t, conduct its own investigation and take action independent of the criminal process.   Second, Chung can’t be suspended with pay pending resolution of the charges. It’s simply not available under the substance-abuse policy. The Commissioner-Exempt list applies only to potential Personal Conduct Policy violations involving alleged crimes of violence.   Third, Chung will be subject to NFL discipline only if he ultimately is found responsible for a drug-related offense. This requires a conviction, a guilty plea, a no-contest plea, or entry into a diversion program. If Chung fights the charges and wins exoneration, the league can do nothing."   Chung might play all 2019 while the legal battle ensues. We'll just have to let the justice system play out here.   https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/patrick-chung-will-face-no-league-punishment-likely-for-a-while/ar-AAGbAoZ
    • Jarret Stidham, and Brian Hoyer.  It will be highly interesting to see what BB does...  recently he more often has only kept 2, with exceptions (IE: Garoppolo and Brissett for one).  He once kept 4, and the 4th stringer made #2 (backup) next season, and supplanted the #1 later and has become arguably the best QB ever to play.   Ironically, Hoyer is the guy who made Belichick comfortable enough to go to only 2 QB's, and now Stidham might phase out Hoyer for that spot.   https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/wholl-be-tom-bradys-backup-a-quarterback-controversy-may-be-brewing-with-patriots/
