It's looking like the final 2 playoff spots will have a lot of competition and unless someone in the top 5 falls off, there will be a battle for the top seed.

We have the 3rd highest Strength of Schedule and the second highest Strength of Victory!

Also, 4 of our 7 wins are teams in the playoffs as of today! Beating Green Bay is big and thankfully we'llbe at home in the short week!

How crazy is this? I don't know whether this is unique or I just haven't paid attention before due to our record not being this good since 1974.

Green Bay in January is somewhere you'd rather not be. Packers have the equivalent of six byes in their division games. They own Chicago and Detroit and beat the Vikings more often than not.

Just for fun, in the scenario that we and the Rams both finish 16-1, here are the tie breakers.

  1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
  2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
  3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
  4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
  5. Strength of victory.
  6. Strength of schedule.
  7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
  8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
  9. Best net points in common games.
  10. Best net points in all games.
  11. Best net touchdowns in all games.
  12. Coin toss

Yeah I asked about that last week. Crazy to have that many teams with one or fewer losses going into week 8.

In a tie at 16-1 with LA, it would come down to “Strength of Victory” with Arizona having wins over Dallas/Carolina/Cleveland and the Rams having wins over NYG/TampaBay/Baltimore as the only differences (non-common games). The tie-breaker would go to the team whose trio of non-common victims has the better combined record. If that is still tied, it goes to #7 on the list.

Crazy to think that we have 10 more games and only need to win 1 more to match last years total wins.

Bucs definitely have the easiest schedule left. They essentially only have one remaining game they could lose (Bills).

And so far their schedule has been a cake walk. They’ve played two quality opponents and split them (Dallas & Rams)

15-2 is very realistic for them.

So to lock up the #1 seed I think the Cards are legitimately going to have to go at least 15-2 and hope we have tiebreakers over Tampa.
