New England could dictate all AFC wild-card matchups with a loss and Ravens’ victory.

short answer is No!... long answer is they still got a chance to be 1st or 2nd seed and get a bye week so again No!... well there you have it

If it came down to it, next Tom Brady would much rather be at home wearings his Uggs and snuggling up with Gisele than playing a first round playoff game.

No way would they miss a chance to move up in the playoffs instead of down. Not even Brady and Belichick are that idiotic.

Ravens better win! Period! I will be rooting for the 'phins! NE can upset both of the tops seed. Ravens can beat the Broncos and or Texans. Meaning AFC championship game round 2 Pats vs Ravens in B-More!! Ravens need to be as explosive when they played the G-men.

Really it does matter to me who we play , my hope if i had one would be to play the Bangals. we have there number so why not. then we move up to the SEXANS OR PATS no matter after the first one so forget the seed thing I want the Bangals.

Its likely that if the Ravens win the Pats will throw the game, the pats play at 4 so they will know all the results and whether its possible for them to move up, and if everyone wins out nobody wants to play the broncos, period. Its smarter for the Ravens to take the week off and go in 4th, it'll give backups valuable play tine and people like ngata, boldin and reed a week to get healthy

I noticed that The Pats always seem to get the easiest schedule every year!! No team in there division has a winning record.The Ravens on the other hand always have a very difficult schedule,partly because we have such a tough division.In the new Madden, the Ravens are rated an 86,and the Pats are rated a 90.I don't see how they are making there grades. We beat the Pats,and are only one game behind them.Also we have the tougher schedule and division!! If we were in there shoes we would probably be 14 and 1.Just wanted to show how people disrespect Bmore,and jump on the popular teams sacks!! Madden is a joke!!!

I don't want to see the Pats pick the easy way to the Superbowl. Let's lose on purpose so they have to face Cincy and then Houston or Denver, rather than a lesser squad. I'd feel more comfortable going against Andrew (I like to throw picks) Luck, than Andy (I have no soul because I'm a ginger) Dalton.

i think while they still have a chance to snatch a one or two seed they won't throw anything a bye week is very inticing this late in the year esp if the texans continue to implode and play badly .

If you're suggesting that they might "throw the game", that is doubtful and far fetched.
Also, it would be a hard sell to make that look right. Maybe even harder than simply playing normal and winning. They are a good football team but I doubt that they have the talent to choreograph such an academy award winning acting feat.

Also, reedlookalike15 has the right answer. The Ravens just need to win.
Four game winning streak and we hoist the Lombardi. That's waht reallt matters here regardless of what the Pats do.

All very interesting stuff. Also interesting is the fact that the NFL just recently moved the Patsies game back to a late game. Hmmmmm......

The sad part is??? I can actually see the Patriots doing something like this, regardless of what Bellichek says. It wouldn't be far-fetched at all. Texans have lost of late, and the Broncos are on fire... It's not likely that the Patriots would take those seedings... but if they could play a lower caliber team to advance, I believe they would.
