NO/CAR playoff scenarios

First of all one of us could clinch a playoff spot this week

NO.pngNEW ORLEANS can clinch a playoff berth with:

  1. WIN + DAL loss + PHI loss + ARI loss

CAR.pngCAROLINA can clinch a playoff berth with:

  1. WIN + DAL loss + PHI loss + ARI loss + SF loss

 

 

Secondly the next 4 games and winning the division

1) Obviously if either one of us sweep we will take the division

2) If we match each other the rest of the way we will have identical records in the divison and for common games. Unfortunately the next tiebreaker is wins within the conference which NO holds and advantage by 1. So if we both lose another, we need to lose against the jets and New Orleans can lose to either the Rams or Bucs. EDIT: IF NEW ORLEANS loses to the Bucs we get in on division DUH

3) Strength of victory. NO has a slight lead .435 to .421. Right now our opponents are identical: Panthers and New Orleans at 9-3 Rams and Jets at 5-7 Tampa and Atlanta at 3-9. So technically we want the Jets and Falcons to win and the Rams and Bucs to lose overf the next few weeks except when they play New Orleans. EDIT: I don't think this comes into play.

 

Here are all the scenarios:

And us matching New orleans the rest of the way would make one of us a 12-4 WC team based on SOV.

We can split with the Saints and still win the division if the Saints lose to the Rams and we beat the Jets... is that what you are saying?

Sweep the Saints = division winner.

 

Splitting w/ the Saints would require the Saints to lose to either to the Rams or the Bucs for Carolina to win the Division. Assuming a split, Carolina could lose to the Jets (but not the Falcons) and still win the division if the Saints' loss is against the Bucs. If Saints loss is against Rams, then Carolina has to beat Jets/ Falcons.

 

Carolina only needs two wins to guarantee a WC spot so even if we get swept by the Saints beating Jets/Falcons gets us in.

Not what he said. He said if we were to lose another game the jets would be the team to lose to since it wouldnt hurt our conference record
