e16bball Posted November 28, 2022 Share Posted November 28, 2022 (edited) Was really hoping (and continue to do so) that @Woz the Great and Powerful would handle this beast of a topic. But we’ve got 5 games left in our season, and if said season was to end today, we’d be playing bonus football, so the issue must be addressed. As of today’s date, we control our own destiny, so if we fail to lose out, we’d be playing bonus football. The odds are that we may fail to win one or more of the remaining games, though, so we’ll have to see where everyone else stands. Here are the things we “know.” ▪️ MIN is the only team basically fully locked into a division title. They’re going to be one of the top 4 seeds. ▪️ It’s an extreme longshot at this point that any other team from the NFCN makes the field. ▪️ One of SEA or SF seems overwhelmingly likely to win the NFCW. My money is on SF. ▪️ If SF does run away with the division, SEA seems likely to be a strong contender for a wild card. ▪️ It seems very unlikely that the NFCS puts more than one team in the field. ▪️ That leaves the NFCE. All 4 are contenders, I consider PHI the most likely division champ still. In short, I think realistically the Wild Card race at the moment consists of 4 teams for the 3 spots. It’s possible that another team jumps up into that mix, but I’m just not sure who it could really be. Would have to be DET or TB/ATL, I suppose, as everyone else already has at least 8 losses. Here’s what those 4 teams have remaining in terms of schedule: DAL: IND, HOU, @JAX, PHI, @TEN, @WAS (SOS = .508) NYG: WAS, PHI, @WAS, @MIN, IND, @PHI (SOS = .701) WAS: @NYG, BYE, NYG, @SF, CLE, DAL (SOS = .569) SEA: @LAR, CAR, SF, @KC, NYJ, LAR (SOS = .493) Edited January 2 by e16bball 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
