Playoff Picture after Week 16

Simple:

Win and we're in.

If the Colts win, nothing else matters.  Only the seed is yet to be decided.

Colts loss and Jags loss - Colts in
Colts loss and Jags win - Jags in

Now for that crazy seeding crap.  JUMP!!!

How it stands right now:

  1. New England (clinched home-field)
  2. Pittsburgh (cliched berth)
  3. Kansas City (cliched division)
  4. Indianapolis
  5. Baltimore (clinched berth)
  6. New York (clinched wild-card, cannot win division)

I'm only going to focus on scenarios that affect the Colts seeding. I'm also not going beyond the first round until after next week.

Colts as 4 seed

This would happen if the Colts lose and Jags lose or if KC wins and the Colts win. The Colts would host Baltimore, Pittsburgh or New York.

Host Balitmore If: PIT win (@ CLE) OR BAL loss (v. CIN)
Final Order: New England, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Baltimore, New York

Host Pittsburgh If: PIT loss (@ CLE) AND BAL win (v. CIN) AND NYJ loss (v. BUF)
Final Order: New England, Baltimore, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, New York

Host New York If: PIT loss (@ CLE) AND BAL wins (v. CIN) AND NYJ win (v. BUF)
Final Order: New England, Baltimore, Kansas City, Indianapolis, New York, Pittsburgh

Colts as 3 seed

This would happen if the Colts win and KC takes the loss (v. OAK). The Colts would host either Pittsburgh or New York.

Host Pittsburgh If: PIT loss (@ CLE) AND BAL win (v. CIN) AND NYJ win (v. BUF)
Final Order: New England, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Kansas City, New York, Pittsburgh

Host New York If: NYJ loss (v. BUF) OR PIT win (@ CLE) OR BAL loss (v. CIN)
Final Order: New England, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Baltimore, New York

Which scenario do you like best? I assume we all pick the one where the Colts are in the playoffs, so would you rather host the NeverMores, Sanchy-Sanchize, or Big Ben and his broken nose?
