And there is no difference between the 3rd and 4th seed. Either way, you're going to have to go through San Diego and Indianapolis to get to the Superbowl, so it doesn't matter which team you face first.
I agree completely. I will find myself in the awkward and uncomfortable position of rooting against the Bengals, and in a nationally televised game, at that. You have to remember that, if the Colts and Bengals were to have given it their all in the Jets' last two games, they'd essentially be a 7-9 team rather than a 9-7 team. I'd like the Bengals chances in the rematch.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
