Don't look now, Panthers are second in their division

This game is definitely going to dictate the tone for the rest of the season. If we lose this game, it would take a Super Bowl victory to convince me that Rivera shouldn't be canned.

2nd in the division without playing any divisional games. Dont choke.

Question.

If we sweep the saints, but they have an overall better record than us, do we win the division or does the best record in the division wins? In other words, does overall record matter, or does the divisional record matter?

Based on the answer we could be practically 0-0

I would say we could win all 4 games not should.

3 of those games are on the road and Minny is better than their record

But we HAVE to win at minimum 3 of these games and would like to take all 4.

1. Overall record

2. Division record

3. Record vs team in question

4. Pts scored

And thats how they determine who places where

Divisional record does not matter unless your overall record is tied with the team and you are 1-1 against them.

 

So if we sweep the saints and end up at the end of the season with a tied overall record, then we are the divisional champs. If the same thing happens but we are 1-1 with the saints then divisional record matters.

 

From NFL.com

 

TO BREAK A TIE WITHIN A DIVISION

If, at the end of the regular season, two or more clubs in the same division finish with identical won-lost-tied percentages, the following steps will be taken until a champion is determined.

Two Clubs
  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
