Today is a must win to keep any hope of success alive for the phins. But, ya know what, a win today can make next monday's game vs. the Jets a HUGE opportunity for the phins.
Thats right. The phins play 4 of their next 5 games vs. divisional opponents. And lets face it, if the phins are to get into the playoffs again this year, they are now going to have to win at least 5 if not all 6 of their divisional games. A wildcard spot is almost less likely than a division title given our circumstance. We must win these divisional games, beat the Bucs, Panthers, Texans, Jags, and Titans. Thats 5 wins we really need. Throw in those 6 divisional games and that takes us to 11. If we drop a divisional game then we are looking at needing to steal a win vs perhaps the Saints. We also have the Steelers in the final week at home, a winnable game. More or less we are going to win at least 5 within the division and get 6 of those 7 other games. We simply cant afford a loss to the bills.
But, hey...its an opportunity. It isnt over yet. Hell, the Jets and Pats both face very tough opponents today. A win by the phins and we could be the only team in the division to get a win. Then all of the sudden we are looking at a shot to beat the Jets and get to 2-3 and only 1 game out of first place going into the bye. Its do or die time.
