Breaking down the likely wild card contenders
I will not include the NFC West because SF and St.Louis are not going 8-8 or better. I believe also Arizona and Seattle represent the 3 seed and first wild card. If we get in, we will be one and done because of the west coast first playoff game trend.
Here are my projected division winners
Contenders-Dallas, Philadelphia, Minnesota, Detroit. Chicago and Washington are not getting to .500.
Philadelphia@Washington-Philadelphia(and this is why we have a chance winning because they will be gassed after two straight road wins).
Detroit@Seattle-I'm picking upset here, Seattle looks sloppy on O.
Detroit vs.Arizona-Detroit, I would think they can win this at home.
Minnesota vs.KC-Minnesota, they just look too good on defense.
Minnesota@Detroit-At home, Detroit should win.
Vikings 3-3, Lions 4-3
Dallas@NYG-NYG, without Romo, the gmen stop the bleeding.
Detroit vs.KC-Detroit, it's on a neutral field and they have more offensive talent.
Minnesota@Chicago-Minnesota, they honestly cannot lose this.
Dallas vs.Seattle-Seattle gets their revenge.
Philadelphia@Dallas-Philadelphia gets even.
Eagles 3-5, Cowboys 2-6
Minnesota@Oakland-Oakland is looking improved. And they are at home.
Philadelphia vs.Miami-Philadelphia can beat this overrated team.
Dallas@TB-Romo's probably back, and Dallas wins.
Minnesota vs.Green Bay-Minnesota. After seeing how they are looking at home so far, I feel without Nelson, Minnesota can actually win this.
Dallas @Miami-Miami, the back to back road games hurt Dallas here and they could be looking to Carolina.
Lions 7-4, Eagles 5-6
Detroit vs.GB-GB, they won't lose on a Thursday night and having too much to play for.
Minnesota vs.Seattle-Seattle, but I could be wrong here.
Dallas@Washington-Dallas, with Romo they should win.
Detroit@St.Louis-St.Louis, I don't think Detroit has the running game to pull this out in a tough place and Gurley should be full strength by here.
Minnesota@Arizona-Minnesota, before the season I called the upset here.
Philadelphia vs.Buffalo-Buffalo looks so good on defense, they can win here.
Lions 8-7(eliminated as they can't finish second in north)
Detroit@Chicago-Lions will already be eliminated because Minnesota has division tie-breaker, so Chicago breaks the slump.
Philadelphia@New York-NYG, because they could be trying to play for a higher seed and for momentum.
So I was wrong about Detroit they still could be alive when they play us but I still don't think they can beat us at that point.
Vikings will be the only challenge and they will win the strength of victory tie-breaker assuming we go 2-2 against AFC South(for this to even occur)
Basically nobody is left out with a 10-6 record.
