This. The difference between this and 2-2 with what's ahead is extremely critical. We really need to take care of our homefield this season because the road games will be tough to win. Going undefeated or losing 1 game at home minimum will may be ok to get by. Going 7-1 and 4-4 or 3-5 on the road gets you into the playoffs.
