Sometimes they’ve looked awful. Others, dominant. And yet, in both years in which Ryan has been in charge (including the one where his starting quarterback was a rookie), the team has reached the AFC Championship and earned the last laugh over all but three teams in the league.
This year is different.
After beating Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in consecutive playoff games this past postseason and starting off 2-0 this year (while averaging almost 30 points per game to boot), everybody now recognizes this is officially a championship contender and a force to be reckoned with in the AFC, even in their current momentum doesn’t hold up.
If the playoffs started today, how far would this team go?
You could probably say that all depends.
Who they playing?
