    Because the pats lost, they are now 12-2...if they lose one more game and SD wins out they'd both be 13-3. Is there a chance that the pats will not get a bye in the 1st round??

    Even though San Diego will more than likely lose in the dome against Indy this weekend & the Pats play the 49&#39;rs the last week of the season, a tie would put this in motion:

    <!--QuoteBegin-NFL.COM


    TO BREAK A TIE WITHIN A DIVISION
    If, at the end of the regular season, two or more clubs in the same division finish with identical won-lost-tied percentages, the following steps will be taken until a champion is determined.

    Two Clubs
    1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
    2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
    4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    5. Strength of victory.
    6. Strength of schedule.
    7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    9. Best net points in common games.
    10. Best net points in all games.
    11. Best net touchdowns in all games.

    That would totally drop-kick everyone&#39;s plan of going to San Diego. Unless we wound up the 6th seed & the Colts ran the board with 2-straight wins. Indy would be 2, San Diego 3, Pats 4.
    • If we were the 6 playing the 3, We would play on Sunday instead of Saturday in San Diego.
    • If we were the 5 playing 4 under this senario, we would play at Gillette on Saturday January 8th.

    Lets just hope we get in...

    Win and we are the 5th seed, and if we have to go to New England 2 weeks later to face them again, then we will beat them again. Anything can happen in the playoffs, let&#39;s just beat them this week so we are assured the 5th seed / we&#39;re in.

    I agree, that way we can at least rest our starters on the January 2nd game in St. Louis & prepare for the Wild Card Weekend&#33;

    No and&#39;s if&#39;s or but&#39;s - A WIN THIS WEEK WOULD MAKE LIFE EASIER&#33;

    I don&#39;t think that the Pats can be any lower than the 3 seed this season. The own the head to head over Indy and the worst case tie scenario with the Chargers the Pats should win based on strength of victory since the conference and common games records would be the same. Since Indy and SD play each other odds are one loses meaning the best they could do is tie the Pats which the Pats would win.

    The only way the Pats drop to 4 is if San Diego and Indy tie, and finish 12-3-1 with the Pats finishing at 12-4.

    Basically, the winner of Sunday&#39;s Chargers-Colts game needs a miracle (NE to not only lose to us, which I think will happen, but ALSO to lose to the 49ERS, which is damn near impossible) to take the bye away from the Pats. Therefore, even though it is difinitive that NE has the tiebreaker edge over Indy due to head-to-head, we should STILL root for Indianapolis so that we don&#39;t have to play them in Round 1.

    Then, we gotta hope the Niners can stun the Pats (and of course for Indy to take care of its business and finish 13-3).
