Eh, if that happens I'm not too worried.

Now, if it does happen, and the Giants and Bears win out, and the NFC West turns into a wrecking crew while the Patriots implode and drop their last three along with the Chargers and Colts, well then I'm worried.

But for what's likely to happen, I'm not. The Panthers will win, the Bengals will lose, and at the end of the season their opponents will have around 152-156 combined wins while the Panthers' will have between 148 and 152.

So, the Panther higher limit will be where the Bengals lower limit is. Assuming they're tied, then the NFL will go to the divisional tie breaker methods to see if any is applicable. Since they played, the very first divisional tie breaker method, head to head, will be used. And the Bengals beat us.

And yes, I know they're not in the same division. But the rules say methods, meaning that they'll proceed down that path after the Strength of Schedule is worked out.

No worries, unless we win two of our last three.

Edit: I'll add that if you don't buy the head to head thing, all of the other tiebreakers that may be applicable are about points scored and points allowed. Given our 12.6 points per game average, something fairly drastic would have to happen to lose that one.

I think the Huddle will implode if we don't end up with the first pick after watching this thing that passes for a season.

Naw...

The REALLY awesome implosion comes when they get the first pick, Luck declares, and we trade down for picks. :)

If that happens I imagine I wouldn't sleep for a week.

Another way to read this is by division record, which may be the correct manner. In that case, Cincy is 1-5 in the AFC North, while the Panthers will be 0-6 in the South.

Advantage: Carolina.

I'd like to see a win, no matter what.
