The AFC looks like its setting up for....

....2 Teams.

Patriots & Steelers.

 

Neither team looks like their uber talented but they are 2 franchises that know how to win and the rest of the conference is taking turns staggering. 

 

Buffalo losing its luster and its division stranglehold....  The historically unsuccessful teams in Ohio can't be counted on.... The Titans lost the most Dominant player in the league and I'm sure not expecting the chargers or raiders to go to the super bowl. And andy reid & Mahomes seem way off this year.

 

And the Brand of the Pat's and Steelers are certainly appealing to the networks, advertisers,  and the league.

 

Hope I'm wrong of course as I despise both franchises. 

If I were to root for a non colt team it would be the Ravens, but after watching the dolphins beat them up I'm not too high on them either. haha

I wouldn't mind seeing the Patriots back in the Super Bowl. They are a different team now, and it would be kind of cool to see Mac Jones take them there.:hide:

Kinda the same... I'd rather then than Brady go back for 8..

 

But we shall see what happens I don't see the Steelers maintaining this.  And the pats still have a few hard games left

Titans, Bills, Chiefs, Patriots will probably be the last 4 standing, mainly because their defenses are coming along well with everyone having enough flaws in their offense, IMO.

 

Ravens will still win the AFC North while the Steelers, Raiders and Chargers will fade. Ravens got a taste of their own medicine with the blitz, see here:

Raiders and Browns in free fall, Pitt looked really bad as well in tie vs Detroit and barely beating the Bears. Bengals ? Plain ugly.  Chargers need to right their ship having lost  3 of 4 but have Pitt so should win this week.

 

I expect Buff,Balt,Tenn and KC   but Chargers could catch KC and already beat them, Buff could be passed by Pats.

 

7 AFC playoff teams....Buff,NE,Balt,Tenn,Indy,KC and Chargers.

Joey Bosa was a close contact for covid but he will play as long as he keeps testing negative.Tillery is the one who tested positive. We will see how this effects Chargers.

 

Steelers have a lot of covid stuff going on. If Big Ben doesn’t play Sunday they very well could lose. But that game doesn’t matter who wins or loses.

Patriots will win that division

Colts need that tie breaker over the Bills. 
 

Right now colts need Chargers. Raiders and Steelers and Bengals to keep faltering. Good news is colts will get help this weekend with 2 teams because 4 of these teams play each other.  
 

Colts control their playoff destiny. Just need to get it done. Would  make hard knocks really good rest of season.

 

Pats still have to play Bills twice.

That's 2 very likely wins for the Pat's. 

 

The question for Bill's fans is which wild card seed will they fall to unless they completely fall out of the playoffs. 

 

I think they lose to the colts which will give them 4 losses. They could lose all 3 against Pat's twice and brady....that's potentially 7 losses and a 10-7 record which I think will be good enough for a spot. Another loss somewhere could give them a 9-8 record which I think is doubtful for a spot.

 

This coming game vs the colts is a huge game for them with the Patriots twice and bucs still left on schedule.

I don’t know. Pats really haven’t beaten anyone yet. Haven’t beat a good offense either. Pats just don’t score that many points. I don’t count blowing out bad  teams.

Zak Keefer said colts will know next week when far pats game will be played.

What's there to know??

Their history is there for the last 2 decades minus last year. 

 

Does their talent level seem below other teams?......yeah

 

Does their offense look pedestrian?.....yeah

 

But their team often lacking hasn't usually kept them from succeeding in the past and they still have Kraft, McDaniels and most of all Belichek. 

On GMF, which I usually don't watch much(too many props, lol) I caught them saying that not only they may be back but may Dominant the AFC for the next decade. :wall:

I could change my mind after they play colts and bills. It’s just a gut feeling right now. Pats do look a lot like when Brady was a rookie. I just need to see if they can hang with good offensive teams before I say they are definitely good.  Also before we say Max looks like Brady I need to see growth next couple of years. Eventually Brady could make big plays. Just still out whether Jones can.

The best offensive team they played at home was when the Cowboys were healthy and rolling, and they took them to OT despite Mac Jones throwing a pick six in regulation. Lost 29-35. Mac Jones is very good on short and intermediate routes, we need to force them to throw beyond 20 yards consistently where his numbers are lower, that is how we stay in the game and on our end, don't turn the ball over as an offense like the Titans game at home when the game is close. That is what the Patriots thrive on, good field position due to turnovers.

Wow - really?  Since the majority of every roster is turned over every 4 to 5 years that is really a stretch.  Yes - they might have found their QB, but just too many more variables to ever say a team may dominate for the next decade.

The Steelers really looking bad. Like they are old and stuck in quick sand. 

Their lack of talent may have forced the Football Gods  abandon them this year lol. We'll see if they can turn it around but not looking good for them and Big Ben.

 

But the Pat's are looking like the Pat's of old.....dinking and dunking, it's like brady never left. :D

 

It will be hard for any AFC team to get by them.

NE is winning by an average of 35 points while giving up 10 per game. Put a team up against them and man for man does not count because of the head coaches. We could be looking at an unknown number of years of another Patriot domination of the AFC. 

Honestly, it's true. Mac Jones is only going to get better, and he has a defense that can allow him to make mistakes and not feel too much of the consequences.

With all of the media hyping of mobile QBs, and dispensing such kool aid to the fans, I'd like to see NE and rookie Mac Jones win the SB if it isn't the Colts. 

 

Yeah, no, I'm still not past the suffering of the last 20 years, they can still go 3-14 every year for as long as I live.

You are right on. Whoever wrote that hasn’t been around Patriot or Red Sox fans too much. If they were, they wouldn’t want NE to win for another 100 years.

I root for teams down the stretch that can help us get into the playoffs. I hate the Patriots and Steelers but if I needed one of them to win (beat a certain team) for us to make the playoffs then I would be forced to put my Darth mask on or wave a Terrible Towel for 1 week.
