Will it be the New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, or Baltimore Ravens?
I know a lot of people out there are a little confused with the format so I’ll clear it up for you. There are only 3 possible scenarios:
|Jets Lose & Chiefs Win||Chiefs|
|Jets Lose & Ravens Win||Ravens|
Now where does that leave Patriots?
Who do we actually want to go against?
As much as I would like to be playing in the NFC with their weak opponents we have to choose one of the three.
I think New England would have the best chance against the Chiefs. The Chiefs do have Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles as well as Dwayne Bowe but I don’t see Matt Cassel being able to rise to the occasion with the post-season pressure and being at Gillette.
Who are we most likely to go against?
I really don’t see the Jets taking down the Colts in their matchup. Manning has proved himself time and time again and Sanchez’s luck seems to be running thin.
I also don’t see the Chiefs taking down the Ravens. Flacco, (if he can hold on to the ball) has a number of targets to hit with Derrick Mason, Anquan Boldin, and Todd Heap (recently back from injury) in his arsenal. Add Ray Rice and Willis McGahee to the receiving triple-threat and the Ravens have an impressive list of names on the offensive side of the ball. I think we’ll be seeing the Ravens in Gillette come the divisional playoff round, I also think we’ll win.
