    Thinking ahead to next years schedule and which two teams we play in the AFC South and West. Anyone know how the tie breakers work? It looks to me like we finish 3rd based on Conference record 5-7 vs. 4-8.

    I could be wrong but I think it's still 4th in AFCE, but still ahead of them in the draft if that makes sense.
    "Fans get me going. The worst thing to do is talk junk to me before I'm about to go against your quarterback. Whenever I get trash talked by fans at an away game, that's the best motivation. Because I know if I get the opportunity to get to the quarterback, it's going to be even worse now. If there's a fan telling me I'm garbage and my team sucks, you're talking directly to me. And I'm going to take it out directly on your quarterback." - Mario Williams

    3rd. Conf record is better

    But still draft before them because of an easier SOS

    Unless it is common opponents. They beat the Colts and Rams. I hope we finish 4th.

    Ah right that's what I meant.

    No such thing as ties in standings.

    Yep. Miami did the same thing to us last year.

    Both were 6-10, but they swept us. Miami Came in 3rd in the division. But drafted 8 and we drafted 10

    Looks to me like we finish 4th in the division because of the common games played.

    Good find. I thought conference was more important.

    We play the Chiefs for the the sixth straight year. That's got to be some kind of record. I think we play the Jags for the 6th time in the last seven years as well.

    It sucks that the AFC South game is on the road, that game would have sold out with Tim Tebow playing for the Jags. Instead we get to see KC at home again!
