Well, here we are folks. Our magic number is 1. No matter if the Colts win out, as long as we win one more game, we will win in a tie-breaker!
In case some of you don't know the math, let me break it down -
At 12-4 records for the Colts and the Titans, the tiebreaker (at best for the Colts) would look like this:
Head-toHead = Tie (1-1)
Division Record = Tie (4-2),
Common Games = Titans (thanks to wins against the Bears and Packers)
Of course, if the Colts manage to lose their scrimmage against the Browns this weekend, we can begin to celebrate our dominance over the Division this Sunday!
But somehow I doubt that will happen... More than likely the Colts will play sub-par football for 58 minutes and let Peyton engineer the game-winning touchdown in the last two minutes to win the game so the homers over at StampedeNation can continue their campaign to anoint Peyton Manning MVP of the NFL.
Now, I'm sure we all knew by week 8 that we had essentially won the division, but when it officially happens (oh-so-very-soon), let's take the time to celebrate the achievement.
In the meantime, I invite everyone to enjoy this poster with me. It is our destiny.
