Can we clinch next week?

As it is now we have (basically) a two game lead on the next wildcard team. With four games left foes a Car win, and loses by Arizona and SF mean we're in?

Win and everything else will take care of itself.

Cardinals can still get to 10 wins and have the tie breaker over the Panthers.  So the answer is no, they can't clinch with a win.

No. Magic number is 2.

What about if the 9ers lose as well.

need 2 wins to clinch.

 

sf could lose next week and hit 11 wins still, arz could lose and still hit 10.

Just win, baby.  Stop worrying about losing, which is what this thread is implying.  Just win, baby.

Dallas and Philly still play each other so one of those teams is guaranteed a 6th loss. And Zona and SF still play each other. As long as we can beat the Jets and Falcons we should get in as a wild card.

Sweeping the Saints would be icing on the cake. Will have to sweep them tho since they'll have a better conference record than us. I don't see them losing to St. Louis or Tampa but any given Sunday that poo can happen.

Arizona would still not be eliminated against us head to head because they have the tiebreaker. Would be 3 back with 3 to play.

 

You also have to factor in the NFC North and NFC East who are all still alive.

 

I think it is mathematically impossible for us to clinch next week

Ahh, I didn't realize Arz and SF still have to play.

 

 

edit: and I forgot the NFC East... didn't realize Dallas and Philly were both at 7 wins.  blah

I think it's possible but it would rely on Arz, SF, Dal, Phi all losing... I think we'd own the tie breaker over chi because of conference stuff, even if they win out, but I may be wrong

If we win next week and then lose out we're 10-6. If the Cardinals win out from here, they're 11-5. If the 49ers win out except the Cardinals game, they're 11-5 and we miss the playoffs. Unless I'm missing something. It doesn't matter that the 49ers and Cardinals still have a game left.
