The league needs to change the HFA Seedings
 
Just my opinion...

It's not fair that the 12-4 Chargers have to travel to the 10-6 Ravens. They have the same record as the 12-4 Chiefs. who also get a first round bye and HFA throughout, for the same overall record. The Chiefs won the tie breaker but rest of the conference got the reward.

Winning your division gives you a spot in the play offs. That should be reward enough. Best record should determine home games.

Thoughts?

Total agreement on this with you; but, the Ravens did beat the Chargers in LA a few weeks ago so there are those that would throw this out there...

But it should be record with ties to sos first, then conference...

No way any 2018 NFC East or AFC North team should have a home playoff game over some of these stronger teams...

It happens on occasion, I think to us too once. But you have to beat the best to be the best, at home and on the road.

LAC wins anyway on the road.
