This is if our records end up identical. Unless we beat the Saints twice. Assuming we split 1-1
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.
Here's to sweeping the Falcons, that's a MUST WIN GAME. MUST WIN
3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
This is where it gets interesting. Saints beat the Bills, Cardinals... teams we lost to. We beat the Patriots, a team Saints lost to. Jets - MUST WIN. Why? Cause the Saints lost to the Jets. Here's hoping the Saints lost to the Seahawks, cause we lost to the Seahawks. We need the Saints to lose to Seahawks. And/or the Rams. It would be amazing to lose to both. We got it if that happens and we split 1-1
4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
This right here if it comes down to this is the KILLER. These fugers are undefeated vs NFC so far. If they lose tonight and we SPLIT with them, that would be only 2 losses against the NFC unless they lose to the Rams which would make 3 NFC losses(Panthers, Hawks, Rams) to our 3 losses(Saints, Hawks, Cards)... but if they do see 3 ^^^^
So realistically speaking here... its looking like we have to defeat them twice. And that sucks cause UNLIKE the NBA, the NFL don't reward the team with the best record HFA. There's nothing wrong with a wildcard. Its extremely possible to bulldozer to the SB it happens a lot. Just like... it's also possible to defeat them twice
