    vs. Chargers
    @ Oakland
    vs. New England
    @ New Orleans
    vs. Cincinnati

    Best case scenario and worst case scenario, how do we finish the year?

    I say....

    Best case - 3-2
    Worst case - 1-4

    I am very worried about the end of this season. While I do believe we still win the division, are we really gonna succeed being the 4th seed in the AFC? Having to visit either New England and/or Kansas City in the playoffs to get to the Super Bowl?

    I think 2 losses is the probable outcome, but I wouldn't be surprised to see 4-1 or 1-4 with how inconsistent this team is.

    LAC... Thankfully the game this week is at home. If they continue to play sloppy at home then I'd be very worried about the rest of the season. But me thinks they'll dominate and get back on track. It's the defense that I'm more worried about. Should see a lot more 3 S DIme this week. Which I pray means less zone.

    OAK... This used to look easy, but now that we've seen a very terrible PIT team on the road 2 weeks in a row I am very worried about this game. A loss here would be detrimental to their playoff seeding.

    NE... Playing at home should give us confidence in them, but the Pats take up season-long residence inside the PIT lockerroom's mind. Huge playoff implications with this game so they should be fired up.

    @NO... At this point I think they'll be 1 game behind NE, even if they beat them the week prior. So this game would be big if they wanted to nab a higher seed.

    CIN... Best case they have locked up their seed, and this game is meaningless so they could rest their starters. But I have a feeling the Steelers are going to need this game. Which really sucks because Cincy would love nothing more than to derail the Steelers any way they can.

    Best case...4-1 beating losing to NO (NFC team)

    Worst case...2-3, they lose to LAC, NO & NE

    Most likely case...3-2, they lose @ NO and their traditional loss to NE.

    Best case...11-4-1...that might be good enough for the 3 seed because I don't think NE will lose again if PIT beats them. HOU would have to post 12 Ws also and Idk if they will...in this case they would host BAL or whomever the 6 seed is.

    Most likely...10-5-1...Yep, this will be a 4 seed....so probably would host LAC again.

    Truth be told...I think they would win either way, but I would rather face the Chargers (warm weather team in JAN) vs a div rival so if they don't get the 2 seed, 4 is not so bad imo.

    This is gonna be a bad stretch. We need to beat New England or New Orleans. Only way we win the division.

    At this point, all bets are off.
    Which team is going to be on the field?
    Hopefully not that second half shit show from the Charger game...….

    AFCN is hot, steamy garbage. Browns could easily take the division crown next year.

    Let that sink in.

    The fact that we didn't give it all up to the Browns Week 1 might actually help us win the division this year. We could be 8-7-1 while the Ravens could be 8-8.

    However we slice it, 10-5-1 would pretty much lock up the DIV...that means winning 3 of 4....based on how they looked in week 13...2-2 is more probable. 9-6-1

    BAL @ KC is going to be an interesting game, but I don't see BAL winning....they held ATL's OFC in check on the road...if they try to play the Chiefs the same way they defended ATL, the Ravens will get beat...barring something crazy I'm going with KC in that [email protected] LAC is the other one that could trip them up....I expect them to beat TB and CLE at home.

    9-7 is the worst I'm thinking for BAL.

    I don't know how in the hell Lamar Jackson has been doing it, (and I watched most of that BAL @ ATL gm last week) but those two games they won with him at the helm have made this a race to the finish.

    If KC gets out in front and they can pin their ears back, they might wish Jackson was playing again.

    Lets not oversell the Ravens here.... They were 4-5 before playing the Bengals, Raiders, and Falcons. That is three of the worst teams in the league. They are losing in KC and LA. And they have tricky home games remaining against Tampa and Cleveland. On paper, they should win those games....But Cleveland and Tampa are odd teams and have had some odd results this year.

    You will play up to the competition - after losing to NE you'll toughen up!
    I also have Baltimore beating KC so it will have to go your way.....
