NFL Tiebreaker Status (update after week 15, vanity)
December 16, 2012

Posted on 12/16/2012 8:21:13 PM PST by campaignPete R-CT

AFC

for a bye:

Hous has head-to-head over DEN, giving them stronghold on #1 seed and bye NE has head-to-head OVER HOUS and DEN

MI has tiebreaker over CIN/PT, still kickin' with an 8-8 finish. Their 6-6 conf record will give them tiebreaker. NYJ has tiebreaker over CIN, IND, but not PT. They have a shot at 9-7, but eliminated at 8-8.

cin/pt uncommon games is 1=1, so common games will be tied. Winner of head-to-head in week 16 clinches tiebreaker.

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 tiebreaker over CINN (div record) and clinched tiebreaker over PITT (conf record)

TIEBREAKERS FOR INDY, if:

PT 9-7

CIN 9-7

IND 9-7

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)

SOV current:

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.)

NFC

bye: GB has tiebreaker over ATL (conf record)

Giants are in bad shape within the division, but have tiebreakers vs MN and CHI (conf record)

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.

NYG & WASH tiebreakers over the other 3 wildcarders {MN CHI SEA) in CONF record here is NFC 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

example: SEA beat DAL CHI MN, did not play the other 3

there is still a game outstanding WA vs. DAL which is why 'wa' is lower case.


TOPICS: Sports
KEYWORDS: football; nfl; sports; tiebreaker; vanity; week15; week16
I do not have the tiebreaker yet for DAL vs MINN, which comes down to common games. This will simplify after next week when teams are exterminated.

It obviously looks like the winner of PT-CIN in week 16 is golden as is the winner of DAL-WASH in week 17. MN vs CHI likely comes down to final week. INDY would simplify everything with a clinching win vs KC in week 16.

here is a look at the NFC 9-7 ties, if it ends:

WASH 9-7
DAL 9-7
NYG 9-7

MN 9-7
CHI 9-7

then the winner of WASH-DAL game gets the Division. Let’s say it is WASH. Then DAL gets 2nd place over NYG (div record and/or common games)

MN gets 2nd place over CHI (div record and/or common games)

therefore MN vs DAL for 2nd wildcard. DAL 6-6 conf and MN either 7-5 or 6-6. next tie would go to common games. Common games would be tied (1-4 each, CHI, WA, TB, SEA). So it would go to SOV, if DAL lost to WASH.

MN leads DAL in SOV 55-53. So it is close and DAL has a chance vs MN in tiebreaker.

Assumes 9-7 and the MN victory is against HOUS. If it is against GB, MN gets it on better conf record.

If New Orleans win out, while Minnesota, Chicago, Dallas, and New York (Giants) all lose, I was amazed to find that the Saints win the tie breakers. By all rights, they should have been out of it.

yep, N.O. and MN would be tied with 6-6 conference record. goes to common games N.O. vs. MN. So N.O. has incentive to beat DAL next week.

NO wins common games over MN 2-3 vs. 1-4

yep, cuz at 9-7, they could get 2nd place, but MN/CHI at 9-7 very likely to beat them out for wildcard. Maybe I should spend some time turning this into a "plain language version".

Shocked by the good news for the Texans last night. They get the No. 1 seed by simply winning one of their last two games or NE or Denver losing one their last two games.

You mean the Saints aren’t eliminated with all those teams ahead of them? I guess the stars could align in a 1- 1,000,000 event.

Saints 2 x {1 in 2^9} to make the playoffs which is:
2 x 1/(8 x 8 x 8) = 1 in 256. (if every game is 50/50)

yes, HOUS is a strong position with h2h over DEN.

NYJ has common over MI which comes into play only if NYJ 8th win is vs. Buffalo. Would eliminate Miami.

Bender ping.

i was wrong on Saints. It is 1 in 512 or 0.2% which complies with cool standings.
http://coolstandings.com/football/football_standings.asp
use dumb option for every game 50/50.
I had NO with TIE-br over WA and not true. Saints need WA to win the division, allowing Saints to win with Saints having tiebreaker over MN and DAL at 8-8.

If the Giants and Cowboys both lose out, Washington does win the division. They would have 9 wins (they play Dallas yet), while New York and Dallas would have 8.

harpu, livin' 5 miles from JerryWorld (also known as 'Jerry's last erection'), says the Cowgirls won't play in an NFC Championship game as long as Jarrett and Romo are leading the team.

harpu also says; the 'girls won't play in a SuperBowl until Jerry turns the GM keys over to someone who knows football.

This is a 2-way tiebreaker grid for NFC. Y=Yes so NYG has tibreakers over CHI MN SEA (due to c=conference record)
The grid in the main article is only head to head victories.

........... NYG DAL WASH CHI MN SEA

NYG ......- ...... - ........... - ...... Yc ..... Yc ... Yc

DAL ,,,,, Yd,,. - .......... ? ........ - ....... ? ... -

WASH ... Yd .. .. ? ... - ....... Yc .... Yhc ... Yc

CHI .... - ...... Yh ...... - .... - ... - ... -

MN .... - ....... ? ....... - ........... Ydg ... - ... -

SEA ..... - ,,... Yh .... - ........... Yh ..... Yh ... -

example: MN might end up with the tiebreaker over DAL (?). They have tiebreaker over CHI (d=div g=common games)

The winner of DAL vs WASH game gets the tiebreaker between the two.

WA & SEA are strong in tiebreakers. CHI is weak.

WA has strong tiebreakers, see grid in #25.

At 9-7 (victory over DAL), likely division winner.

at 9-7 (victory over PHIL), possible wildcard winner. Tiebreakers over NYG MN CHI (even SEA)

at 8-8, still hope for WA, but will CHI lose 2 games? No.

Thanks but I don’t think the BEARS will need a tie breaker. I hope they lose their next two and slink out of the playoffs completely.

The coaches all have to go. Lovie stands there on the sideline with the headset on but it’s not connected to anything at all. All he hears is the blood rushing to his feet. So stupid, he tries to call for the end of the game pizza and just mutters “NO Anchovies, no anchovies” over and over again...

Cutler sucks worse than ever.

Spring Training opens in a couple of months. GO CUBBIES!!

here are the playoff tiebreaker procedures:
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?page=tiebreakers

note: in the PT-BA-CIN 3-way tie ... even tho BA and PT would be 4-2 division, PT would have 3-1 record in head-to-head among the 3 teams and gets the division. BA has tiebreaker vs PT and CIN in a 2-way tie with either.

these look like good scenarios for the coming week:

Ah here’s the football thread.

Yeah.

My woeful Bears need MN to lose 1 (they have the Texans and Packers) and NYGs too (Ravens, Eagles) or else the Skins (Eagles, Cowboys) so the Giants win the east. If the Giants win out they are assured at least the last WC.

San Fran is my SB pick.

Jets pathetic, LOL. The worse punt I’ve ever seen that wasn’t blocked set them up on the 25 of TN and the Sanchize fumbles the snap. Time for Rex Ryan to put out resumes?

And to proclaim Sanchez even worse than Tebow?

I don't really see a superior contender. Every contender has looked terrible at times. Injuries to key personnel have been a factor and could be more so in the playoffs. I'm very interested in the SF vs Seattle game this week. Denver has played a weak schedule. Green Bay destroyed Houston at home. The Giants haven't looked like a SB team. Atlanta is good and lucky as well. The Pats are always dangerous with Brady playing. Which team will have a hot QB and an intact defense going in and can remain relatively injury free will be my pick.

AFC: Either NE or Denver, period. HOU is a paper tiger. PIT has too many injuries. BAL is sucking at the wrong time. IND or CIN? Not this year, although Andrew Luck is fun to watch play.

NFC: My boys (SF) looked damn good beating the Pats. GB is peaking at the right time. ATL is another paper tiger. MIN/DAL/NYG - same as IND/CIN above.

But my real wildcards for the NFC are: WAS and SEA. I could see either one upsetting either SF or GB and going to the SB.

Should be a good round of playoffs all around. Too bad the games have become the filler in-between the commercials.

And please, NO Ed Hochuli!!!

I agree about Seattle. Granted they raped bad teams the last 2 weeks but still impressive.

They also showed they could win a close road game by pwning the Bears.

My Ravens are too beat up. They may not win another game this year. Final record will be 9-8 or 10-7 if they win one of the last two games. I look for a SF vs NE Super Bowl.

“My Ravens are too beat up.”

Yes. Them and the Steelers beat the sh*t out of each other too often.

“I look for a SF vs NE Super Bowl.”

Hmmm...I think in a rematch in their stadium, DEN can beat NE.

NFC: The winner of this Sunday night’s game will in all likelihood go to the Superbowl. GB being the other possibility along with WAS.

Basically, this is down to six teams IMHO.

COWBOYS UPDATE!!!

if cowboys beat Redskins, at 9-7:
Cowboys have tiebreaker over WASH (split head-to-head, div is tied at 4-2, Cowboys win common games)

So at 9-7, Cowboys win division. Unless NYG finishes 10-6. Therefore,

NYG 10-6
DAL 9-7
WASH 9-7

MINN 9-7
CHI 9-7

MN gets tiebreaker over CHI (div rec and/or common games)
Minn and DAL get 2nd place, so it is MINN vs DAL:
both would have conf rec of 6-6
both have common games rec of 1-4, so it goes to Strength of Victory:

MN leads DAL in SOV 55-53 going into today week 16, update to follow below.

MN leads DAL in SOV 55-53 going into today week 16, update below:

9 TEAMS DAL Would have beat are
3-4-2 today with NYG and CLEVE still playing

9 TEAMS MINN Would have beat are
2-6-1 today with SF still playing

so DAL HAS GAINED A GAME, THUS FAR. PANTHERS AND ATL came thru for them! I will review these numbers later for accuracy.

if MN vs DAL strength of victory ends in a tie, then next tiebreaker is strength of schedule. Since victories are tie, strength of schedule is strength of defeat.

dAL currently leads by 1 game, 63 to 62
7 defeats for each team.
DALLAS 7 LOSSES
9/16 Seattle Seahawks at Seattle (0-1) L 7 - 27 9
Mon 10/1 Chicago Bears Chicago (2-1) L 18 - 34 8
Sun 10/14 Baltimore Ravens at Baltimore (4-1) L 29 - 31 9
Sun 10/28 New York Giants NY Giants (5-2) L 24 - 29 8
Sun 11/4 Atlanta Falcons at Atlanta (7-0) L 13 - 19 13
Thu 11/22 Washington Redskins Washington (4-6) L 31 - 38 9
Sun 12/23 New Orleans Saints New Orleans (6-8) 7
TOTAL 63

MINN 7 LOSSES
Indianapolis Colts at Indianapolis (0-1) L 20 - 23 10
Sun 10/14 Washington Redskins at Washington (2-3) L 26 - 38 9
Thu 10/25 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay (2-4) L 17 - 36 6
Sun 11/4 Seattle Seahawks at Seattle (4-4) L 20 - 30 9
Sun 11/25 Chicago Bears at Chicago (7-3) L 10 - 28 8
Sun 12/2 Green Bay Packers at Green Bay (7-4) L 14 - 23 10
Sun 12/30 Green Bay Packers Green Bay 1:00 pm 10
TOTAL 62

eliminate the common defeats, because they cancel each other out. This assumes NYG at 10-6 and GB beats MN.

DALLAS LOSSES

Sun 10/14 Baltimore Ravens L 29 - 31 9 (1 remaining only, plays vs NYG)
Sun 10/28 New York Giants NY Giants (5-2) L 24 - 29 8 10
Sun 11/4 Atlanta Falcons at Atlanta (7-0) L 13 - 19 13 (1)
Sun 12/23 New Orleans Saints New Orleans (6-8) 7 (1)
TOTAL 37 current

MINN LOSSES
Indianapolis Colts at Indianapolis (0-1) L 20 - 23 10 (1)
Thu 10/25 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay (2-4) L 17 - 36 6 (1)
Sun 12/2 Green Bay Packers at Green Bay (7-4) L 14 - 23 10 11
Sun 12/30 Green Bay Packers Green Bay 1:00 pm 10 11
TOTAL 36 current

dal min-max 39 min up to 42 max
MN min-max 38 min up to 40 max

So dAL is within 1 game of clinching a tie at worst. With 5 games next week. BA ATL NO INDY TB. ATL PLAYS TB, so that game is a double.

(OF COURSE IF NYG loses vs BALT, DAL cannot be the wildcard because at 9-7, they win division. And none of this SOV SOD matters.)

CINCY HAS magic number of 1 to CLINCH THE TIEBREAKER AT 10-6 VS INDY.
WOULD PUT CINCY IN #5 SEED.
NO HEAD TO HEAD
CONF REC WOULD BE TIE
COMMON WOULD BE TIE
S.O.V.:
CIN 46 wins (at 9-7)
at 10-6, they added PITT which is a 7
INDY 48 wins (at 9-7)
at 10-6 they added KC which is a 2

so CIN 53 going into today
balt sd oak wash won putting them at 57

INDY 50 going into today
mia gb mn won giving them 53

cle jax kc are common VICTORIES
bringing it to 7 UNCOMMON

indy:
mn xx plays gb
gb xx
tn
mi
buff
det
tn
can get 6 max next week which is 59

cincy:
wa
nyg xx plays phil
oak xx plays sd
sd xx
ph xx
ptt
balt loss next week
min of 2 givs them 59, almost clinched

INDY has clinched #5 seed, will play at BALT or possibly PATS

TIEBREAKERS FOR INDY VS CINCY AT 10-6

CONFERENCE WILL BE 7-5
COMMON GAMES, INDY IS 4-1, CINCY IS 3-2 therefore, INDY HAS CLINCHED THE #5 SEED.

SO S.O.V. IS now irrelevant for MN vs DAL and CINCY vs INDY
