One game at a time. At this point in the season nothing can be taken for granted. We need to just keep moving along in the right direction.

Question: what happens if Texans, Ravens, Broncos and Pats all finish 12-4 and for that Ravens beat Broncos and Pats beat Texans? we would lose direct tie-breaker to Texans, who would lose it to Pats, who would lose it to us? Is the conference record the next tie-breaker in this scenario?

@horus13corvineus- The tiebreaker when it comes to non-divisional teams is strength of schedule i believe

It is my understanding that it comes down to conference records, as mentioned in the end of his post.
I could be wrong.

Why does everyone keep saying that the loss to New England shows the Colts have a lot of growing up to do? Clunkers do happen-- every now and again a good team will lay an egg; a big egg. Now I'm not saying the Colts are a finished product, neither am I saying they are not. I am just saying the point used to buttress the argument is flawed on so many levels. A New England team that won a Superbowl in 2003 got their doors blown off by the Buffalo Bills in week one; score-- 31 - zero! That team went on to win 14 of 15 regular season games and then the Superbowl. Guys please stop using one game as a decider of how good... or bad a team is.

Denver is the most dangerous team in the playoffs. The Ravens have always had trouble beating Peyton Manning. Hopefully the Ravens do not have to play him.

My glasses have a tint but are not "rose-colored rah-rah"!

The chances of us running the table are remote given the teams and talent we face and where we face them (3 'away' games),... but if we "hold serve" at home and get one AFC win in an enemy camp then we should be "good to go" with a Bye and home field!

I know we basically have the AFC North wrapped up but I didn't think we had to win the AFC West too! That's going to be tough

We have the toughest schedule, but the Ravens are better when things seem hardest. I can see us beating NY, Pitt, and Denver at home so 13-3 is realistic.

GO RAVENS!

I'd like to see us at least only drop one more loss, and go 13-3 for only the second time in franchise history. I know we face some tough opponents, and have our road issues. But we've been playing great (for the most part) at home, and our upcoming home opponents are tougher than our road ones. If it wasn't for that fake ref overturn of Jones' second TD in Philly, we'd be 9-1 right now. So we'll see what happens.

have some fun and go on http://espn.go.com/n...layoffs/machine and you can pick how the season ends. The site will give you the playoff scenarios as you pick each game. I used this site last year and it is fun to play with from week to week.

We have beaten 3 of he 4 playoff teams who we have faced so far this year
1. Patriots
2. Sqeelers
3. Cowboys

Losing only to the Texans

If you include the Bengals inthe playoff picture we have won 4 or 5 !

That is a good sign heading into the meat of our schedule and the playoffs!
and we have not even peaked yet! (or come close)
