The future is in our hands, but also in the hands of the Jets, Seahawks, Dolphins, Chiefs, Ravens, Cowboys and the Jags. It’s not the best feeling to think that it is possible for us to go 11-5 and still not make the playoffs, but it’s the truth.

At this point, the wild card is our shining beacon of hope. We need the Ravens to lose a game and win out to get the coveted card. The Ravens are playing a desperate and driven Cowboys team next week. The Boys have been surrounded by so much controversy in the past week, which shouldn’t really come as a surprise. Who really thought it would be roses and smiles for more than a year with TO on the team? Did you think the “bromance” of Romo and TO would last? Nah, I didn’t think so. Drama aside the Cowboys beat the Giants handedly and now have the momentum to hopefully beat the Ravens at home.

The Pats must also beat the Cardinals and the Bills. It‚ should happen, but it might not. It makes it all the more nerve-racking, sickening and fun. I wish we had the tiebreaker then I would really be having a good time.‚ 

I really need to stop thinking about the Pats- over and over and over. I will call my boyfriend to throw out a scenario on my way home from work. I have x’s and o’s in my brain. I will now understand tiebreaker rules for the rest of my life. It’s times like these where I wish I loved the Celtics and Bruins more. But alas that isn’t the case. Diagnosis: Football Fever. Damn, I love the NFL.

What do you think? Will the Pats make it?
