Patriots having to play 4 seed Chiefs or 5 seed Ravens? Both teams play them well.

Jax has nothing to play for if Steelers win on Christmas. They would be locked into 3 seed. I can see them resting everyone next Sunday and not showing their hand and Tennessee backing in as the 6 seed. Then Jax beats them in wild card in two weeks. 3 seed Jax comes to Pittsburgh. I know they killed us earlier but I would rather play them than Ravens. Chiefs maybe.


Thoughts?

Having the #1 seed theoretically available will work to the team’s benefit too, I think.

Since Ben will have to play at least most of the game (Jets/Pats will be on concurrently), he’ll get more work with all the guys not named Antonio Brown.

That can only help for the playoffs.

We'll also have the revenge factor on Jax for a psychological edge.

I want no part of Jax with Fournette at RB. Shazier out and Fournette would just run even more rampant over us. Not a good matchup.

Scrunge I agree....if there were 1 game where Debo could really contribute....I think it would be Jacksonville.

He's slowed down tremendously. Take a look at is YPC as the season has wore on.

He looks tired to me. I want the JAGS!

Let’s avoid. His ankle is the issue. Playing hurt on it now for 6 weeks

We definitely need a bye, I just saw AB on Instagram and he can barely walk up the stairs right now.

He is going to need at least a couple more weeks.

I cant imagine playing as poorly vs jax as last time. no way ben gets 5 pics...warm weather jax now playing in cold.. we have hade issues with these guys in playoffs [3rd and 6]
I'm not sure the best path except avoiding Foxboro and the officials..
