It will make us battle tested going into the playoffs. 

 

The playoff machine is up, I ran a scenario where we only lose to the Cheifs and Bills, and the Rats drop one to the Stealers and one to the Browns, and we ended up the 3 seed.

They wont lose to the Bills Jamie..

As good as Allen is and he's damn good,

JB will win this game..

Hes.a better QB .

 

My faith in JB grows more

as the games get more crucial.

Faith yes..

Just ran a couple of scenarios--Bengals lose 4 of the final 7 and still make #7 Seed. Only one scenario required "help".  But all required a win versus Rats Week 17.

 

This is a fun thing to mess with. I'm certain things will get tighter in the next several weeks, and the scenarios will also get tighter. 

 

Yeah I aways like messing with it myself

I hope you're right.

 

Could see another Cheifs/Bengals AFCC?

Unlikely, they were both equally awful yesterday. Patsies just got lucky on a last second punt return. They are both bad teams and neither will be in the playoffs.

Lucky nothing. There was at least one block in the back that didn’t get called.

Stealers-Ravens games are ALWAYS bloodbaths. Two wins is not assured for the Ravens - especially as one-note as their offense is currently. Stealers will not mail those two in. At all. 

 That's excellent--it will take care of the one game deficit between us an the Rats thanks to Week 5. Bengals still need to take care of their own business though.  I believe we can take the division again--its just gonna be much tougher.

I figure the Rats drop one to the Stealers because they always play each other hard, but also thought that Watson being back a few games in he will knock of the rust by the time they play each other.

 

Optimistic? Maybe, but I don't think it's completely out of the question.

 

I can see this. It's easy to look at the remaining schedules and make judgements based on W-L record TO DATE (like I did), but that's not a hard and fast indicator of how strong those teams are going to be GOING FORWARD.

Ran an ESPN Playoff Machine for this week. If every AFC team in contention loses—other than—the Bengals, they will be in the 6 Seed. 

 

I ran it for this week as well, and picked what I thought the favorites were, and also the Bengals and we were 6 seed after. Ran the same simulation picking the favorite each week and us in each game and we didn't move to 5 seed until week 15

 

I think playing the Ravens two weeks in a row is a real possibility

I think they are a beatable team they just are facing too many 3 win opponents down the stretch. 

I agree. The Bengals may match up better with them in a 7 Seed vs 1 Seed in RatLand scenario. 
 

Again, only if they cannot be overtaken in the division.

Ran a two-week scenario, wherein the Bengals lose both to TN and KC. 
 

They disappear from the playoffs with even the most favorable outcomes from the rest of the AFC games. FWIW, the Pats are in the 7 spot. 
 

The following week would mean wins would be needed Bengals over CFT, Jets over BUF, and AZ over MIA in order to get back to the 7 spot.

We said that we need at least 10 wins to get into the playoffs. 

 

That would mean we have to go 500 for the rest of the season.

 

You think we don't go 500?

 

We will. 

 

We are a playoff team.

 

Now we find out if we are a division winning team.

Jaime the book is KC -2 1/2 at their home field..

Its a pickum by all accounts and rightfully so..

 

Its a shootout between the 2 best QBs in the NFL..

Cant even predict this one outside of what a great matchup this is...

 

Who-Dey...
