The Cowboys will spike the Giants
Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers
Even if the Lions lose today, I’m happy enough with them.
So the Steeler/Brown game has been canceled.
IF CIN loses, IT IS SIMPLE
EXACTLY 2 TEAMS LEFT AT 430PM
it opens up the 9-7 tie possibilities. And it is simple ... at 4:30pm EST when the 1pm games end, there will be exactly 2 teams left for the wildcard ... and the OAK & DEN games at 4pm EST will decide THE WINNER.
So exactly 2 of the 4 teams (CIN NYJ TEN OAK) will be eliminated when the 1pm games end. The easiest rules of thumb:
1. ONLY IF NYJ win, is 9-7 CIN out at 4:30pm.
2. ONLY IF TENN wins, is 9-7 NYJ out at 4:30pm.
3. OAK is out at 430pm, only if TENN wins and NYJ lose.
4. IF TENN wins, they survive at least until the 4pm games end.
AFC WILDCARD TIEBREAKERS
2-WAY TIE AT 9-7:
NYJ* wins due to conf rec
CIN* wins due to head-2-head
OAK* wins due to conf rec
AT 9-7, CINCINNATI LOSES ALL 3-WAY AND 4-WAY TIEBREAKERS DUE TO INFERIOR CONF RECORD. WORST OF THE 4-TEAMS AT 6-6, they are the first team out. Jets also have no 3-way or 4-way tiebreakers.
TEN* wins due to common games vs. NYJ, 4-1 vs. 3-2.
OAK* wins due to head-2-head over NYJ
TEN* wins due to common games vs. OAK, 4-1 vs. 3-2
OAK* wins due to large lead in Strength-of-Victory over NYJ & TEN
(DEN IS OUT THE WILDCARD BECAUSE AT 9-7, THEY WIN THE DIV)
bender is on a secret mission up north in Iowa for his favorite candidate.
broncos and giants win.
go tim t
More likely he's laid out drunk on a hammock
We have truly terrible games on the tube here in the Twilight Zone today....Have to resort to other options to watch the Pack dupe the Lions today...
GO PACK GO!
They played well this year, Congrats!
If Philadelphia beats Washington, the loser of the Dallas/NY Giants game will finish in third place in NFC East getting the third place schedule for two games next year.
Can't Rogers move ahead of Brees with 500 yds?
Reggie Bush isn't playing. He has accounted for 70% of their rushing yds.
It sounds like Matt Flynn will be quarterbacking the Pack today.
Hopefully the Lions will take advantage and wrap up the Number 5 slot, which means an easy victory against the NFC Least winner.
Go Broncos and God Bless Tebow..
