somebody add some good content ... for this crucial week. Stay away from RJ. Throw the ball to perdogg, filling in for Bender.
Perdogg on it in 41 seconds. Impressive.
Please bring a miracle gift to the Bears.
Many heartfelt thanks to the inventor of the "Mute" button.
this is an NFL “we are over here now” ping
no bender sightings recently
if DAL beats WASH final week, creating a tie and a tie DIV record ... DAL vs WASH common games:
DAL uncommon is 0-2 (SEA CHI)
WASH uncommon is 1-1 (STL MINN)
therefore DAL has clinched common over WASH
NYG is 2-0 uncommon, so DAL & WASH have common games over NYG
NYG have no tiebreakers vs either DAL or WASH, they are in deep dire straits.
MN has clinched common games over CHI. Therefore has clinched tiebreaker over CHI. CHI cannot have better DIV rec if the 2 teams tie.
(head to head is split.)
but MN has much tougher schedule.
BALT-CINN-PITT all went 1-1 in uncommon, so common amoungst the 3 is clinched to be a tie and therefore no longer a factor in any divisional tiebreaker.
BALT is playing for seeding in the wildcard round. They have clinched a playoff spot #3 thru #6. (Unless PT vs. CINN ends in a tie next week.)
TIEBREAKERS FOR INDY, if:
CONFERENCE WILL BE 6-6 FOR ALL 3 TEAMS
IND VS. CIN, BOTH 3-2 COMMON GAMES
IND VS. PIT, BOTH 3-2 COMMON GAMES
therefore, the IND tiebreaker goes to SOV (strength of victory) with both teams.
[note, the NYJ at 9-7 would be 7-5 conf and therefore sweep in, in a 3-way tie, or head to head vs. INDY)
PITT 60 wins (at 9-7)
CIN 46 wins (at 9-7)
INDY 48 wins (at 9-7)
INDY could be out of playoffs at 9-7. Of course, they play @ KC next week. And they have a slight lead over CIN in SOV. (Jets are on the march, too. Sort of.)
9-5 with 2 to play
jets in the hunt ... have tiebreaker over CINN
NYJ has tb over CIN, not PT
MI has tb over CIN/PT, still kickin.
Hous has h2h over DEN, giving them stronghold on bye
NE h2h OVER hous and DEN
cin/pt uncommon is 1=1
winner of h2h week 16 clinches tiebreaker.
NYG & WASH lead the 6 wildcarders in CONF
head to head:
........... NYG DAL WASH CHI MN SEA
NYG ......X ...... X ...... X ... X ..... X ... X
DAL ,,,,, X,,. X ..... wa ... CHI ... X ... SEA
WASH ... X .. .. wa ... X .... X .... WASH ... X
CHI .... X .. CHI ...... X .... X ... X ... SEA
MN .... X .. X ....... WA .... X ... X ... SEA
SEA ..... X ,, SEA .... X ... SEA ... SEA X
i finish at 9-7, another poor week.
going with ATL over DET on SAT
NYJ toasted. If they win out to 8-8, they get 2nd place and eliminate MIA due to tiebreaker (common games). MIA is still kickin’ if they finish 8-8 ahead of NYJ and tie CINN and PT.
have yet to use atl, chi, pt as winner
have yet to use cin, cle, nyj, wa as loser
week 16 sure winner is CAR
sure loser is CLE
? .... NYG - BALT
? ..... SF - SEA
