And if we can beat Falcons and Johnny football beat the panthers next week then we could rest players week 17

Looks like Colston got his groove back tonite and some nice play from the Defense. But it was the imploding Bears thanks in part to Aaron Kromer.
If Julio is still gimping we can beat Atlanta.
The Browns seem to be leaking and Carolina has found some spark that game is not a given either way.

Put Hoyer back in
The Browns have a good defensive front

So what you are saying in reality is we have a slightly better chance of about 20%?

Honestly, I think Carolina has the edge.

Atl will be war (in a short week) for us, and Bucs have found a way lose 12, but are in almost every game. Unlike the Bears, they have not folded up the tents. I don't think they roll over for us.

The Clowns are a better team than their record. I'm not sure we are. The Bucs' players are clearly playing for a future in the NFL. We are going to have to work hard to take this one. Any loss and it's over.

Panties can beat/will beat the Manziels, but they won't beat the Clowns.

Re: Playoff math now simple

We've developed an awful habit of blowing teams out on the road only to come home expecting to win and getting whooped... Gotta stop that on Sunday. Beat the Failclowns and we're in the clear. The Bucs put Gerald McCoy on IR which helps us greatly and by week 17 I expect they'll be packing it in.

Re: Playoff math now simple

who would have thought we would be a better road team this year... what a crazy season, can't win at home, can't lose on the road.
