    If the season ended today... LOL!

    http://www.nfl.com/playoffs/playoff-picture

    If the season ended today, the Broncos would host the Colts in the WildCard round.

    What kind of karma would that be?

    Oh the irony if things end up playing out that way!!!!!!!

    After looking at that, what is also says is that (if all things stay the same) and the Broncos beat the Ravens then the Pats are vaulted into the #2 seed via the tie breakers ... right?

    Well say the Broncos, Pats, and Ravens all finish 13-3. That means the Broncos and Pats win out with the Ravens only remaining loss being to the Broncos. The Pats have the tie breaker over us, but then we'd have the tie breaker over the Ravens, who happens to have the tie breaker over the Pats. How would this be decided then?

    Here is something interesting.

    Look at the remaining schedules of the 6 teams from the AFC that would be in the playoffs if the season ended today. Notice how easy the Bronco's schedule seems to be compared to the rest.

    Then notice that the Broncos only play one of the other teams once! The rest of them have to knock each other down because they play each other more than that.

    EDIT: Some of our competition have to lose some of their games because they play each other, and someone has to lose in those games.

    That's a very good and helpful analysis. I would cp you now, but I think I'm out because I can't count.

    What I think is funny is that the 7th seed belongs to none other than the 4-6 Chargers lol. Even more reason to beat them, because I don't want them getting any hopes of slipping into the playoffs since they are just outside the bubble

    In my "perfect world" our playoff road would be Indy > Hou/NE > NE/Hou > Alt

    All those teams use their tricks to stop Peyton and I doubt they work a second time when the offense has had a whole season to get use to each other.

    In addition our defense is much better today then it was week 1-4

    Actually I would rather another team beat NE....not sure if we could stop both their TEs assuming they both healthy.

    NE knows they must win out because the Broncos might win out.

    As Kevlar441 pointed out, if the Pats win out the Texans drop a game.

    The Steelers and Ravens not only have each other twice, but some other tough games, too.

    I doubt if the Broncos care much about the schedules and scenarios of other playoff contending teams in the AFC. They are focused on their next opponent.

    It seems that if the Broncos win out, they might be the #2 seed which would mean a bye and a home game in the divisional round.

    The situation in the AFCN could open up a spot for the Colts. However, the best 4-5 team at the moment may be Cincinnati who might be able to make a run. If they do, they might be the other Wild Card. The Bengals may be rising while the Chargers ... ?

    Here is a different metric. This is not one of those If the playoffs started today, but a look at each team's probability. According to this view, the AFC seeding is most likely to go as follows:

    1 Texans
    2 Ravens
    3 Broncos
    4 Patriots
    5 Colts
    6 Steelers
