The bottom of the AFC bracket is really weak. It's hard to believe that Tennessee and Buffalo are playoff teams.

And any one of the NFC teams could make the Super Bowl.

Eagles would've been a tough out with wentz. Now? Not so much. I'd argue the eagles even as the 1 seed are the least likely to advance to the super bowl. NFC is wide open

does PIT get the winner of the 3/6 (JAX/BUF) game or the 4/5 (KC/TEN)? Im really more concerned about who goes to NE? Does the 3/6 winner feed into NE side of bracket or the 4/5?

In a way I would love to see KC go to NE but what are the odds of a team beating Bellicheat 2 times in the same season?

JAX has a defense that could give Tom Terrific problems, but everyone must realize that to beat Tom Terrific and Bellicheat, one will have to beat the Pats and the refs. Its just a fact of life. I was sort of hoping BAL would get in and have a path to NE cause they have a defense that can bother Tom Terrific and their running game with Alex Collins could hurt NE. Maybe JAX with their great D along with Leonard Fournette could help us out and upset NE/refs but can BBortles not fold under playoff pressure?

Buffalo will not do it. They just got their arses handed to them by the Pats/refs (instant replay took away a TD from BUF in their game that could have changed the game possibly). Poor Jets were trying to play tough and refs called PI on a deep ball that Tom Terrific threw incomplete today. Gave the ball to NE at the Jet 14 and couple of plays later NE got a TD that deflated the Jets. It is just a given that Bellicheat/Tom B will get the benefit of calls/non calls. Teams who play them just have to accept it and make sure the refs cant take it from them.

As PIT knows oh so well, it is really really really hard to beat NE and the guys in stripes.

Anyway, I was just wondering which winner will get to go to NE?

Jax (#3 seed) won't play NE if they win. NE is the #1 seed, so will ALWAYS play the lowest seed left standing in the AFC.

Assuming that the Jacksonville and KC both win, then the Steelers get the Jags and the Pats get the Chiefs.

They re-seed every round. So if Buffalo beats Jax, we get the Tennessee/KC winner, and if Jax wins, we get Jax.

Jacksonville cannot play New England in the divisional round.
