Denver doesn't scare me on defense. Brady owns Jack Del Rio defenses. Their offense is a different story.

Not to mention Brady always gets pumped when he plays Manning.

As it said on some video on NFL.com, Eli eats Brady but Brady eats Peyton. I wouldn't put it past Horseshoe Manning and the Giants to luck out and make the playoffs, though.

I think we have a great chance to make the Superbowl, maybe even win it. Denver is really the only team that stands in the way particularly, even though we probably won't blow out Houston to the effect we did twice. The Seahawks, 49ers, and Packers are all huge threats as well, but I like us in a 49ers matchup, as well as a Seahawks game in New Orleans. The Packers and Patriots are somewhat similar, both have two of the three best QBs in the game, (Brady, P. Manning, Rodgers), and both defenses are pretty bad. Depending on how their injuries play out, and with Gronk back, we could easily overwhelm their defense. If our defense plays good, we can hold Rodgers. No matter what you do, you can't stop him, but they could do a part in containing him.

It all comes down to how they play. If they play Houston-style/2nd half 49ers style, terrific offense and a motivated defesne, there's no team that can beat us.

Jacksonville style... Any team can beat us.

I just don't buy Denver. I know I'm in the minority, but something about them feels fraudulent.

They play in a cake division. They've lost to Houston, Atlanta, and the Pats.

Their defense is overrated. They do have Peyton which is always a toss up. Overall Denver doesn't scare me that much.

Houston getting the **** kicked out of them by a good team per usual.

They're trash. A win against Miami and they're 3rd seed. The way they've played makes them look like they have no business in the playoffs.

Hopefully the Bears hold on for a win. Then we can officially start our Super Bowl celebration, since the Giants are out.

As a Patriots fan, that's a bias that will just never go away.

Bye bye, Eli.

Lets go Pats! That bye would help our injuries a lot... Gronk will help.

Also can't help smiling at the Colts locker room. Good for them, great for Chuck.

Wow, we can still get the BYE...it only takes a win, that's it. Better would be of course the #1 seed, but I don't get my hopes up. No chance KC wins in Denver

I've been thinking that all season. What a great story that team has been this year, and it's a lot easier to appreciate it when the rivalry isn't really there anymore.

I cried at least 15 times this season thanks to all of the Pagano human interest stories...I'm a sucker for those. And montages. I love a good montage.

Pats are by far the best team in the AFC IMO. The only team that I can see beating them is maybe Green Bay if the Pack can get there..NE would take San Fran in a rematch IMO.

Get ready for ESPN to pump Manning for MVP because the Broncos got the one seed, and they will not even mention Brady defeated him this year.

Also Broncos lost to most of the good teams they played, Pats lost to Arizona and thats the reason we are not the one seed.

Pats are better... Way better IMO...

Can I get some love for my beloved Vikings from my friends?

Was really pulling for AP to break that record, 9 more yards..that sucks.

Vikings had 2 gutsy wins in the past 2 weeks but I don't like their chances in Lambeau :/ though if Ponder limits the mistakes AP could take over the game.

Let Manning win another MVP, he won't win the game that matters. Denver is such a fraud team. Lost to ATL, HOU, and NE, best a down trending injured BAL, and went 6-0 in the joke of the AFC West.

Pats getting the bye is huge. Having to play Houston in Houston instead of Gillette would've sucked.

Baltimore loses to Indy, Houston beats Cincy. GB beats Minn (sorry WBC), and Seattle loses on the road to Washington.
