We're in the Playoffs. (Atleast as a wildcard anyhow)
What some of you might not realize is, regardless whether we win or not next week, if Pittsburgh beats Cincinatti we automatically win the division. Because at that point, even if we lose to Cincinatti in Week 17, we'll split as we did with Pittsburgh, the only difference being that both teams lost to Cleveland whom we swept.
With that said:
Cincinatti & Pittsburgh play at 1pm next week, we play the Giants at 4:25pm.
So the question I pose to you, do we take a crap shot chance at getting a higher seed, or if Pittsburgh wins do we do the smart thing and rest our starters the next two games and go into the playoffs the Division Winner at 9-7?
Realistically Denver plays the Browns & Kansas City.. The Patriots play Jacksonville & Miami.
So I say why risk getting any more banged up, let our starters sit out and get healthy, and go into the Wild Card round with a fighting shot.
Also as an added bonus, if we lose to Cinci after clinching it would knock Pittsburgh out of the Playoffs.(*ADDED)
What say you?
