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

 

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.

I was thinking that if SF and Ari both lost next week, coupled with loses by the NFCN and NFCE teams we could clinch since SF and Ari still have to play one another, guaranting one of them another loss.

Alternatively, the Cardinals could win out except for the 49ers game and finish 10-6 and would get in over a 10-6 Panthers due to the tiebreaker.

That's actually impossible since SF and Ari play each other, so they both can't win out.

Then we would still have the tie breaker over the 49ers, implying that they both lose next week.

Okay wow I think you might be right. Using the playoff generator thing on ESPN.com, a Panthers win coupled with losses by ARI/SF/DAL/PHI would indeed clinch us a playoff spot.

Actually it's even simpler. Damn I'm bad at math. If we win next week and the Cardinals and 49ers only lose, then we clinch the playoffs. The Cards, 49ers, Cowboys, Eagles could all win out except for the Cards/49ers losing next week and the Cards/49ers game in Week 17 and we still make the playoffs. I think this is right.
