I'm very optimistic. The Ravens are on pace for 12 wins. They have the #1 defense in points surrendered. #1 Special Teams. We've seen this winning formula with lesser Ravens teams. The offense however inconsistent it looks, is cranking out 20+ points for the 31st straight game.....and shit!....they may find their grove over the next 8 games. :gorave:

Other than the Chiefs, how scary is that AFC list of contenders?

Week 12....



NFL standings for Week 12

AFC playoff picture

Who would be in?


1. Pittsburgh Steelers (10-0), first place, AFC North. The Steelers have a precarious game lead over the Chiefs for the top seed and the lone bye. They have a very favorable schedule ahead to follow the Jaguars win in Week 11. They now lead the Browns by three games and the Ravens by four games in the division, with head-to-head tiebreakers against both teams. Remaining schedule: vs. BAL, vs. WSH, at BUF, at CIN, vs. IND, at CLE

2. Kansas City Chiefs (9-1), first place, AFC West. The Chiefs got a much-needed Week 11 road win after the bye to avenge their Week 5 home loss to the Raiders. They now have a comfortable three-game lead in the division. It will probably come down to the wire for the No. 1 seed between them and the Steelers with two tough NFC South road games left. Remaining schedule: at TB, vs. DEN, at MIA, at NO, vs. ATL, vs. LAC

3. Buffalo Bills (7-3), first place, AFC East. The Bills, coming off a bye in Week 11, now have a full-game lead over the Dolphins and a three-game lead over the Patriots, after both teams lost as favorites in Week 11. They also beat the Dolphins and Patriots in the first meetings to hold the current tiebreakers. Their losses against the Chiefs and Titans hurt for potential seeding, but they do get a shot at home against the Steelers. Remaining schedule: vs. LAC,  at SF, vs. PIT, at DEN, at NE, vs. MIA

4. Indianapolis Colts (7-3), first place, AFC South.  The Colts had to beat the Packers to stay ahead of the Titans, whom they beat in Week 10. The win over a quality NFC opponent in Week 11 also strengthened their wild-card fallback position. The Colts' key AFC losses are to the Browns and Ravens. They play the Titans again in Week 12 with first place on the line. Remaining schedule: vs. TEN, at HOU, at LV, vs. HOU, at PIT, vs. JAX

5. Tennessee Titans (7-3), second place, AFC South. The Titans got a much-needed win against the Ravens, another wild-card hopeful, to at least get this wild-card position after the Colts followed suit with an overtime win of their own against the Packers. Now they need to focus on splitting with the Colts in Indianapolis this week. The Titans also have a key AFC win over the Bills. They play the Browns, over whom they have a conference record edge, in Week 13. Remaining schedule: at IND, vs. CLE, at JAX, vs. DET, at GB, at HOU

6. Cleveland Browns (7-3), second place, AFC North.  The Browns got another gritty cold, rainy weather win over the Eagles at home in Week 11 to get back into wild-card position, thrilled by the Ravens also losing to the Titans to fall one game behind them. The Browns lost to the Raiders but beat the Colts and they draw the Titans in Week 13. They do not play the Dolphins but play the Ravens and Steelers again. Remaining schedule: at JAX, at TEN, vs. BAL, at NYG, at NYJ, vs. PIT

7. Las Vegas Raiders (6-4), second place, AFC West. The Raiders are still here after losing to the Chiefs last Sunday night because they still have a superior conference record (4-3) than either the Dolphins or Ravens. They beat the Browns and also get shots at home against the Colts (Week 14) and Dolphins (Week 16) in December. Remaining schedule: at ATL, at NYJ, vs. IND, vs. LAC, vs. MIA, at DEN

Who can get there?

8. Miami Dolphins (6-4)

9. Baltimore Ravens (6-4) :unsure:

The Ravens dropped all the way down here after their shocking blown-lead home loss to the Titans as their free fall continues from the AFC's top seed in 2019. They also are in third place in the North now, too, behind the Browns. That makes Thursday against the Steelers a must-win. The Dolphins' upset loss at the Broncos put them out of position, so they must rebound against the Jets on the road...........https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/nfl-playoff-picture-updated-afc-nfc-standings-for-week-12/ar-BB1bnrYh?li=BB15ms5q&ocid=U508DHP

AFC Playoff Projection

1. (AFC North Champion) Steelers
After watching the Steelers win a Wednesday game, the computer seems to like them even more now. For one, the Steelers now have a 99.9% chance of winning the division, which means the computer is has all but crowned them as the division champion. The Steelers also have a 21.52% chance of winning the Super Bowl, which is the highest in the AFC and second-highest in the NFL (Saints have a 25.46% chance).
2. (AFC West Champion) Chiefs
The Chiefs picked a bad year to be good. The computer is projecting them to finish 14-2 and in any other season prior to 2020, that would have been good enough to get a bye, but this year, the No. 2 seed isn't going to be getting a bye, which means if the Chiefs finish in this slot, they're going to be forced to play on Wild-Card Weekend. The computer has the Chiefs finishing one game behind the Steelers, who are being projected to finish 15-1.  
3. (AFC South Champion) Titans
If you're wondering how big it was for the Titans to beat the Colts on Sunday, just consider this, the computer now basically views Tennessee as a a near-lock to win the AFC South. Before Week 12, the Titans had just a 44% chance to win the division, but those odds have now skyrocketed to 90% following Tennessee's win over Indy. The best news for Titans fans it that the team's weird streak of four straight 9-7 finishes is expected to end as the computer is projecting Tennessee to get to 11 wins. 
4. (AFC East Champion) Bills
According to the computer, the AFC East is the only division in the AFC that's even still remotely up for grabs. Heading into Week 13, the Bills are being given a 78% chance of winning the division, which is a high number, but it's not that great when you consider that the other three division leaders are all at 90% or higher. The problem for the Bills: Not only are the Dolphins being given an outside chance to win the division (19.4%), but the Patriots are also being given a 2.6% chance to steal the division crown.    
5. Wild Card 1 Browns
If you're a Browns fan, the computer has some good news for you: It really likes Cleveland's chances of ending its 18-year playoff drought. The Browns are currently being given a 72.3% chance of making the playoffs, which is the highest percentage in the AFC for a team that's not currently leading its division. The best part of the computer's projection is that if this week's projection holds, the Browns and Bills would play in the Wild-Card round, meaning one of these two teams would get to win their first playoff game this century.   
6. Wild Card 2 Colts
After losing to the Titans in Week 12, the computer doesn't think Indianapolis has a realistic shot of winning the division crown anymore. Heading into Week 13, the Colts chances of winning the division title are sitting at just 10%. The Colts shouldn't get too comfortable in this wild card slot either, because the computer doesn't love Indy's shot of landing the fifth-seed. Both the Dolphins and Ravens are right behind Indy and if the Colts slip up over the next few weeks, they could find themselves on the outside looking in when it comes to the postseason.  
7. Wild Card 3
If you believe the computer, the final wild card spot in the AFC is going to be a dog fight between the Dolphins and Ravens. As things currently stand, the Dolphins have a 66% chance of making the postseason while the Ravens are right behind them at 63.7%. One thing you'll notice here is that the computer has completely given up on the Raiders, who are being given just a 29.7% chance of making the playoffs. 

First team out: Ravens (63.7% chance of getting into the playoffs)....https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/2020-nfl-playoff-picture-here-are-the-projected-postseason-chances-for-all-32-teams-heading-into-week-13/
