I think ultimatly the Wild cards are going to be 2 of Chicago, Minnesota, Seattle, Dallas and Philly.
With the schedule ahead of us I like our chances, but I still think we're a year away from winning the division.

Minnesota we need the head to head tie breaker for the end of the season wild card standings. I do think Arizona is on the brink of falling apart but their defense will continue to keep them in games for the most part. I really do think we can win 7 of our last 9 games. Going to Miami is a game to not overlook but we have a lot of time to prepare for them. At Chicago i think is by far the hardest game we have remaining besides 49ers at home but i think we win that anyways. I wouldn't be surprised to see us lose to Detroit and Chicago and maybe Minnesota but win the rest. 10-6 in my opinion is easily obtainable. 12-4 i could see happening as well but we will definitely need to elevate our play for Detroit, SF, Minn, and Chi

We all know Detroit will be a tough game - for Megatron alone. We will need to score points, which isn't exactly our strength. Early east coast start.
Minnesota is finding a way to win games. The plus here is it's at C Link. AP is a beast right now, and we better have an answer for Harvin.
The Jets pushed the Patriots to OT in their house. I'm not overwhelmed by them, but they fight and claw.
Miami is not bad, and we always seem to struggle playing there. Long trip and early east coast start. They have the kind of defense that might frustrate us.
Chicago is playing really well on both sides of the ball, especially defense. We seem to bring our game when we visit Soldier Field, so that should be a good game. Hopefully the offense finds it's consitent footing before then.
At home against the Cards - I like the match-up since it's at C Link but it's always a tough/ugly game with them.
The Bills game is interesting - we get a couple of benefits as (1) it's indoors in Toronto and (2) it's a 4 pm start.
The last two at home against SF and STL will be good games as well...and until we beat the 49ers, we have to admit they have our number.
^ Here are some numbers about the playoff picture in the NFC. I usually start watching these about week 10-week 11, at that point they start getting a little more accurate then what they are now.

Have a day off, will you?
