Let's all be Dolphins fans: Open thread
A Dolphins win over the Patriots would put the Broncos back in the driver's seat in the AFC playoff race.
Kansas City Chiefs (-6) at Oakland Raiders
New York Jets (+10) at Carolina Panthers
Green Bay Packers (+6) at Dallas Cowboys
New Orleans Saints (-6.5) at St. Louis Rams
Arizona Cardinals (-3) at Tennessee Titans
Who to root for
Oakland. I'm not going to demand everyone to root for the Raiders, but it would be nice for the Chiefs to choke within the division for a fourth time this season. However, I also enjoy seeing Raider fans despondent and sad ... so either way this game will be a win for me.
Steelers. At 9-4, the Bengals could force the Broncos out of the #2 seed if they win out and the Broncos lose just once more before the season is over. Heck, if the Patriots lose too, then the Bengals would end up with the #1 overall seed. So yeah, it would be nice to squash this possibility today...
Dallas and Tennessee. These two teams lost to the Broncos earlier in the season, so the better record they achieve the more it will help the Broncos in any tiebreaking scenario that may crop out down the stretch.
