I mean, damn: I think a bye week is just as tough to beat than the team you're playing against. You play football every week for months, and then you take your foot off the pedal right before the playoffs? T'is crazy.

Only the best, most talented teams get past their own bye. All things being equal, with two evenly-talented teams, I'll take the one who didn't get a bye every time. More momentum.
It's evident in other sports as well.

Just look at when one team wins the conference semi finals in 5 games and has to wait around for a week while the other team stays in top shape.

Just look when one team sweeps the AL championship series and has to wait around to play a team that's in a close series.

List keeps going.
