Sure, we know the Patriots aren't exactly clicking on all cylinders heading into the final three games, but they have about a 75 percent chance of locking up a bye in the AFC (with the Ravens winning on Thursday, their odds of holding onto the No. 1 seed are over 95 percent).
So the Patriots are likely going to be the No. 2 seed, which means they're virtually assured of hosting the No. 3 seed in the divisional round — and barring a huge upset, this will not be a tomato can.
