- The following are the remaining schedules for NE, Denver, San Diego, Baltimore, and Indianapolis.Baltimore (8-2): Pittsburgh (4-6), @Cincinnati ( 5- 5), @KC (6 - 4), Cleveland (3 -7 ), @Pittsburgh ( 4-6 ), and Buffalo (4 - 6) (3 home, 3 road) Opposition Record ( 26 -34 ). Baltimore has beaten San Diego, but lost to Denver. Has not/does not play Indy or NE. Division record (2-0), AFC record (5-1); has 4 division games left and all 6 games in AFC.Denver (7-3): Remaining Opponents: @KC (6-4), Seattle ( 6- 4), @SD ( 8- 2), @ Arizona ( 2- 8), Cincinnati (5-5), San Francisco ( 5- 5) (3 Home, 3 Road) Opponents Record: (32-28). Has beaten NE and Baltimore, but lost to Indy and SD and has to play SD again. Division record (3-1), AFC record (8-1) only 3 AFC games left 2 in division.Indy (9-1): Remaining Teams: Philadelphia ( 5- 5), @Tennessee ( 3- 7), @ Jacksonville (5 -4 ), Cincinnati (5-5), @ Houston ( 3- 7), Miami (4 - 6) 3 Home, 3 Away Opponents Record (25-34), Division Record ( 3-0), AFC ( 7-0); have beaten Denver and NE; have not/will not play San Diego and Baltimore. 5 AFC games left, 3 in division.NE (7-3): Remaining Teams: Chicago ( 9- 1), Detroit ( 2-8 ) @ Miami (4-6), Houston (3-7), @ Jacksonville (5-4); @ Tennessee (3-7) 3 Home/3 Away Opponents Record : 26-33, Division Record: 4-1 AFC Record: 5-3, have lost to Denver and Indy; have not/do not play San Diego or Baltimore; 4 AFC games left only 1 in division.SD (8-2): Remaining teams: Oakland ( 2- 8), @Buffalo (4-6), Denver (7-3), KC (6-4), @ Seattle (6-4), Arizona (2-8). 4 Home, 2 Away Opponents Record: 27-33. Division record:2-1 AFC record: 6-2; have lost to Baltimore, but beat Denver and play Denver again, have not/do not play Indy or NE. 4 AFC games left 3 in division.So if you go by overall record: 1. Indy; 2. Baltimore; 3. San Diego; 4. Denver; 5. NE (would have 4th seed right now); by AFC record: 1. Indy; 2. Denver; 3. Baltimore; 4. SD; 5. NE.Looking at each team's schedule both past and future: Baltimore should have go 4-2 or 5-1, slim shot at 6-0 giving them 13-3 or 12-4; Denver should go 5-1, possibly 4-2, also slim shot at 6-0 (SD game likeliest loss) to go 11-5 or 12-4; Indy should go 5-1 or 6-0 (Jacksonville likeliest loss left) to go 15-1 or 14-2; NE hopefully should do no worse than 5-1, god help them if they go 4-2, if they beat Chicago chance at 6-0, for record of 11-5 or 12-4; and SD could go anywhere from 2-4 to 6-0, likeliest possibilities 4-2 or 5-1 (Buffalo game in Buffalo, Seattle game, and Denver game hardest games) to go 13-3 or 12-4. So it should be 1. Indy 2. Baltimore 3. SD/Denver 4. NE 5. SD/Denver, but again anything is really possible.Peter> "Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow

Frankly they would have to lose three more games to an undefeated Pats in order for us to pass them and I think that incredibly unlikely to the point of unrealistic.I think it hard for Denver to fall below us in record as well but not impossible and frankly they trail us in the seeding now by virtue of being a wildcard in their own division. That's a tough division and Denver has to win it for their edge on us to make a difference.San Diego certainly looks strong and complete which reflects on our own personal experience with them last year. They have some discipline problems and Marty ball doesn't tend to ride into playoff success. While they were trailing I had a conversation about wanting San Diego to win the division but ideally let us slip into that number two seed by having tie breakers over them if we can manage taht trick. I haven't broken down the schedules to see the feasibility of that just yet but our chances are better against them having not lost to them head to head.Baltimore would make an excellent number four seed if we got a good run at number 2 since there's a nice chance their strong defense and powerful ground game could take on and defeat the Colts and thus let us have a shot at Home Fieled throughout the playoffs... Baltimore has the strongest defense of the crew and that defense will be paying more dividends when January arrives. They also have some tough games remaining and this season has clear contenders for the positions but some wild card room left as six games remain. I'll be a KC fan on Turkey day while letting my Pats rooting only distract long enough to root for us to get the edge on these teams down the stretch. Probably on the December 3 finish I'll post the schedules remaining for the prime contenders to help watch though someone is welcome to pre-empt me. Bottom line is we just played the worst pass defense in the league and our pass offense looked good - not much of a surprise as we did similar against Minnesota. It's time for us to prepare to show something against one of the best NFL defenses int he league. The Bears were played reasonably well by the Jets and we've got some notes from that on how to approach things but the execution this week is pivotal as we really get another litmus test on our level of preparedness as a team.Go Pats!Zip----- Original Message -----From: Peter AndersonSent: Monday, November 20, 2006 5:08 AMSubject: Re: [patriotzip] YEAH TEAM!!After tonight's game, I think the Chargers are the strongest of that group, as long as L.T. stays healthy, if they lose LT, then it's downhill I think for them.Peter> "Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.

The Bears knocked back the Jets and thePonies fell to the Cowboys...there' s no way the Dolts are as good as their record says they are.Better to go out fast and fade like the Colts (maybe...) and then we can creep up as we get better.Baltimore is still ahead of us for the number two seed and so will either Denver or San Diego today..then we'dbe tied with the loser of SD/Denver.Also, with 7 games to go anything can happen..Dolts could lose home field possibly and we could move up to the secondseed. Who does anyone think is strong out of the Baltimore, Denver, SD group?----- Original Message -----From: FrankSent: Sunday, November 19, 2006 3:33 PMSubject: [patriotzip] Vinnie's stats...
Vinnie comes in at the end to kneel down 3 times to run out the clock
at the end of the game. The stats read; 3 rushes, for -3 yards. Hardly
seems fair. LOL!
But seriously, I hope they bring this game back to The Razor next
week. They're going to need it. Gonna be fun to watch this team on
FieldTurf. Maroney could run wild. And we all know Brady's record on
Nice performance today. Hopefully a confidence booster. Looks like TB
is really clicking with Reche. And it looks like Gabriel is really in
the dog house; dress him, and show him the bench. Ouch! Much better
priotection for Brady, as well. Favre was really off his game today,
and Rogers is just not ready for prime time.
Bring on Da Bears!
