Awesomeness!!

Can we clinch next week?

not realistically; it doesn't mean we could then lose our last three games and be fine.

 

however, given that two of our last three games are the jets and the falcons, assuming we win at least one of those, then yes, beating the saints next week all but guarantees us a playoff spot.

I found a scenario where Dallas wins its division and the wild cards were the Eagles and Niners.

 

With the Panthers winning and the Niners losing next week?  How is that possible?

Ideally, Seattle loses 4 straight - including the NO game. Then we win out.

 

When's the last time anyone beat Seattle at home? Like, 2 years ago when they sucked and had no business in the playoffs but still beat the Saints?

a 10 win team will likely miss the playoffs this year in the NFC... its not going to be enough, we need 11

Wow that site says the 2-10 texans are still alive. Lol afc is a mess

 

I was trying to figure out how.

 

It looks like Baltimore has to go 0-4 and TX 4-0. However Baltimore owns the tiebreaker so there has to be a third team that eliminates Baltimore within the Division.

 

The Bengals can't go 6-10 since they already have 8 wins

 

Pittsburgh could but own a tiebreaker over TX as well. So they have to go 0-4 to finish at 5-11*.

 

So it has to be the Browns. They have to go exactly 2-2.

 

This would set up a three way tie at 6-10 for the last spot. The first tiebreaker gets rid of all but one in each division. Baltimore and Cleveland tied head to head and would both have 6 conference wins. So The browns would have to win on common games or SOV or SOS. They have a couple of games remaining that are common.

 

So Ravens are eliminated. The Browns and Houston had no head to head and would again have 6 conference wins each.

 

If the Browns lose to New England both teams would be 1-4 in common games. So Houston would have to win on SOV where they currently trail .417 to .448.

 

*I guess there could be a 4 way tie with Pittsburgh in the mix too same scenarios

you're forgetting about Miami's involvement in the tiebreaker - provided that PIT or CLE end up winning a 6-10 North tiebreaker. Houston would advance on conference record since neither MIA, PIT, or CLE would have 6 AFC wins
