The AFC features 3 elite teams...and a lot of not question marks all over the conference. If you can figure out the rest of the conference...please do enlighten....
I could see any of the following teams winding up sneaking into the playoffs, and frankly I think the non-division conference games this year will loom extremely large, because in all likelihood there will be a host of teams at 9-7 trying to steal the 6 seed, and possibly the 5 & 6.
Save for Jax, Oak, Cle, and KC, I would not be surprised to see any of the 12 teams in the playoffs.
This means that, Pit, Buf, Mia, NYJ games are huge, just absolutely huge. I will not play the w-l-w-l-l-w game that everyone loves so much, but it would certainly be nice to be playing meaningful games in September.
*Disclaimer: This club could still bea 5-11 team.
* Disclaimer II: This team cannot afford an unscheduled bye like we had last year against cincy and indy.
This Buffalo game in a week and a half looms large. It is a huge game. According to my theory, one of our 4 biggest.
