    17th Game Added - Cards at Browns

    The asymmetry won’t affect the competitive balance; one entire conference gets all the extra home games. This year the NFC plays at the AFC for the extra game. So for all the teams we’re competing against for the playoffs (ie, the NFC teams), we’d all have the same number of home/away games.

    Would be enough to get in if the Bears lose.

    We don’t need the Bears to lose to get in.

    Goff has broken thumb

    Poor Bears, must be cursing their luck. I suppose they were counting on us losing as insurance for when Green Bay shows up to claim the 1-seed. I wonder if their fans know our history against no-name backups. Rams are safe as long as Packers win.

    Win and we are in!!

    Question: Let’s say GB/CHI and AZ/LAR are played at the same time and the Bears get smoked, and goes final first. Rams know they’re in, and a tie is good for us. Our game goes late into OT. If we have the ball and a chance to kneel down to run out the clock (Rams can’t stop it), do you do it...

    So your telling me there's a chance!

    With the expanded playoffs: 2/7 3/6 4/5

    We cannot be the 5-seed. Cannot play the East winner.

    Hence why I don’t think they flex our game. GB/CHI will almost certainly go to 4 PM EST. I think WSH probably gets flexed to the night spot. No matter who wins Dal/NY, WSH has to play for the division.

    Tonight’s Green Bay game doesn’t matter to us. Seattle’s victory will force the Packers to play hard against the Bears next week. But... even THAT doesn’t directly matter to us. If we lose next week, we’re out regardless of what the Bears do. If we win next week, we’re in regardless of what...

    Wild Card Tie-Breaker Scenarios

    If we beat LA, we are the #2 team in the West. The Rams would be #3 and could NOT get playoff priority over us.

    Wild Card Tie-Breaker Scenarios

    If Cardinals win, would be 6-seed with Chicago loss or tie. Would be 7-seed with Chicago win. If Cardinals tie, would be 7-seed with Chicago loss.

    We control our destiny!

    Or tie... plus Bears loss. But yes, win and in.

    If LA/AZ gets flexed, Rams may have clinched earlier in the day should Bears lose to a GB team needing a win to lock up the 1-seed. Rams could treat it as a bye week. Bears would have to upset GB to keep LA honest, if our game gets flexed.

    Yes. Unless we plan on playing to a tie. ONLY THEN, GB/CHI determines our playoff fate.

    Wild Card Tie-Breaker Scenarios

    Seattle clinches the West. Green Bay cannot clinch the 1-seed this week thanks to Seattle win. Barring their game getting flexed next week (unlikely), GB would have to play their starters.

    Could be huge for us if this happens. An earlier loss by the Bears to a GB team that has to play its starters (with Seattle’s win today), would clinch it for the Rams. May rest their starters, especially if TB beats Atlanta to lock up the 5-seed.

    LAR @ SEA

    Assuming score holds... Next week we could eliminate the Rams if the Bears also win. GB, however, will have something to play for.

    LAR @ SEA

    If the Seahawks/Rams score holds, GB cannot clinch the 1-seed this weekend. Assuming the GB/CHI game doesn’t get flexed into the night slot, GB will have something to play for.

    LAR @ SEA

    If Rams lose... We’re in next week with a win. ...Or tie PLUS Chicago loss.

    LAR @ SEA

    Yes, if the Rams lose today, we regain control of our own destiny. Win and in. Lose and out. Tie and hope GB beats Chicago.

    If WSH loses and PHI wins, I think the WSH/PHI game becomes winner-takes-all, and likely gets the night slot. Any other combo today, and I don’t see an NFC East game getting flexed next week.

    Could work out in our favor. Let’s say Rams lose, and they move our game to the night slot next week. Then, in the day games, GB defeats CHI to clinch the 1-seed. TB beats ATL for the 5-seed. Rams would have clinched with the Bears loss. We would be playing for our playoff lives. All the Rams...

    Then maybe we’ll salvage a tie? An Arizona tie PLUS Chicago loss works too.
