I'd go with the Jags.  I think there is too much chance Daniel Jones has a poor day giving the Colts good field position. 
I was finally wrong. Boston not only didn't win in 5, but didn't win at all.

Giants had 14 fantasy points, Jags with 17..unfortunately I got my behind handed to me.. My WRS & TE didnít do anything ( Kirk, Samuel, Kelce)..plus RBS (Elliot & Cook) flop

 Need to vent a little here.  My team finished with the number two seed in a ten team league (top 4 make playoffs). I had a bad week, thank you Nick Folk and your kisses PATS,  on the semifinals but made up 19 points on Monday night and we ended in an exact tie (and we go to two decimals).  My league has no stated rule for tiebreakers in the playoffs but the NFL system awarded the championship game to my opponent. 

So I end up in the consolation game but my team goes goofy yesterday and it looks like I would have beat anyone in a championship match by a solid 25 minutes. 

Itís not a super serious league, but itís with a bunch of college buddies and weíve been doing it forever and Iíve never won it!

Boo hoo.
Yup

Tough one. Our leagueís tie-breaker is pretty simple: higher seed advances.

Tiebreaker are usually things like TD's scored in the game.  It is almost based on the points scored in the actual game in some manner.  Sometimes it is points from the QB or RB position.  I'm sure you can figure it out.

I'm down 15 with Gabe Davis playing tonight in the championship. Opponent has Higgins and Bills defense.

It's a long-shot.

Yeah, thatís a tricky one to pull off.  Iíll be rooting for 100 yards and two TDs for you.

That would have worked just fine.  Home field advantage.

Yep.  I begrudgingly accept it, because it's straight forward.  I felt screwed by the rule a couple of years ago, when I lost the tiebreaker due to seeding despite beating the other team twice in the regular season, but I really do think it's the fairest rule.  The regular season matters.

I disagree, I think the fairest rule is utilizing the scoring from the game.  Most TD's seems to work well followed by points from QB.

It is usually in the rules or league settings.  My league for example in the settings has a category called Playoff Tiebreaker which is "Best regular season record vs. opponent wins"
I was finally wrong. Boston not only didn't win in 5, but didn't win at all.
