by my calculations we are 2nd place ... what am I missing.

TO BREAK A TIE WITHIN A DIVISION

Three or More Clubs

(Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated during any step, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of the two-club format).

Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games among the clubs).

Car 2-2 .500

TB 2-2 .500

NO 2-2 .500

Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.

Car 3-3 .500

TB 3-3 .500

NO 3-3 .500

Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.

(NFC East and AFC West)

Car NFC East 2-2 ... AFC West 2-2 .... 4-4 .500

TB NFC East 0-4 ... AFC West 3-1 .... 3-5 .375

NO NFC East 2-2 ... AFC West 2-2 .... 4-4 .500

Tampa drops away

Back to Head to Head

Car win 2-0 vs NO

From what I've heard, Tampa had to lose today for that to happen.

It's different for a 3-way tie.

No.

That was from Ron Pitts.

Of course, Pitts got more than a few things wrong in the course of the game, so... :unsure:

Patty Y says that Carolina finished second in his game recap from earlier today.

Enough to save a job? The Panthers finished the season by winning their final four games and looking like the team many expected them to be back in the preseason. Will that be enough for the Panthers to keep coach Ron Rivera around for a third season? That now is up to owner Jerry Richardson, who hasn’t had a team with a winning season since 2008. Richardson’s patience is wearing thin, but I think patience might be a good thing in this case. Rivera got the Panthers, to finish strong and I don’t think it’s in the best interest of franchise quarterback Cam Newton to have to adjust to a new coaching staff. And let’s remember, Newton is the franchise in Carolina.
