After further review, a tie is perfectly fine and here is why. We would be in the same EXACT situation in the NFCS had we won or tied. A tie puts us at 3-2-1, the Bucs are 1-4, Saints 2-3 and Falcons 2-4. What does that mean?! It means we are still up 2 games in the division and it means if the worst case scenario next week happens which is us losing and the Saints winning still keeps up at the top of the NFCs because we win conference wins tiebreaker over the Saints since we are 3-0 in the NFC.
Also keep in mind, if we finish 8-7-1 and say the Saints or Falcons go 8-8, we still win the NFCS because they would have one more loss than us and by default we win the division. Even better, say we go 9-6-1 and either the Falcons or Saints goes 9-7, we still win the NFCS by default because we would have less losses.
So if we went 4-2 today we would still be in the same exact position, up 2 games in the NFCs and worst case scenario next week has us still on top of the NFCs. In essence us tying today puts in the same exact position as if we where 4-2, we are all just upset is more mental than anything but in reality, a tie would have put us in the same exact position in thr NFCs had we won
There's a flip side to that, though. If we go 8-7-1 and the Saints go 9-7...yeah.
