Open Thread: Wild Card Sunday

Baltimore's victory over Indy means the Ravens will visit Denver on Saturday for a 4:30pm ET game and a chance to avenge the Broncos' convincing 34-17 thumping of them in Week 15.

Of course, the Ravens were without a slew of key players, including Ray Lewis, Bernard Pollard, Dannell Ellerbe, Marshal Yanda, and Ed Dickson, and Terrell Suggs was a significantly weakened version of himself.

Open Thread: Sunday Week 15

A Patriots victory would help them keep pace with the Broncos at 11-3; a San Francisco win would leave Denver as the number-two seed in the AFC, and in control of their own destiny, with the Browns and Chiefs coming to SAF@MH to close out the season. 

By winning today in Baltimore, Denver has already ensured itself of being no worse than the three seed; if the Niners pull off the upset, the Broncos will be in the driver's seat for a coveted first-round bye. Enjoy the game, and Go Niners!

Open Thread and Pre-game Lard: MNF Week 14 - Texans @ Patriots

Andy BenoitBucky Brooks, and Steve Palazzolo break down the matchup. Enjoy the game, and Go Texans*!

* Although a Houston win would immediately place Denver ahead of New England in the race for playoff seeding, and their destiny in their own hands, a Pats victory wouldn't be the end of the world, either. Indy is still very much alive for the AFCS title, although if the Colts were to win their division and end up with 12 wins along with Denver, it appears (by consulting ESPN's Playoff Machine) Indy would tiebreakers over the Broncos and thus gain a higher seeding.
