**SAINTS CAN CLINCH MONDAY NIGHT vs PATs***

TECHNICALLY - If my math is correct and we beat the Pats. Then the worse case happens and we lose out the remainder of the season, we'd be forced into a tie breaker with ATL. In which case, we win the tie breaker based on wins agains NYG and NE (Bucs needs to beat ATL this week as well).


TO BREAK A TIE WITHIN A DIVISION

If, at the end of the regular season, two or more clubs in the same division finish with identical won-lost-tied percentages, the following steps will be taken until a champion is determined.

Two Clubs

Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
Strength of victory.
Strength of schedule.
Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
Best net points in common games.
Best net points in all games.
Best net touchdowns in all games.
Coin toss


Beat the Pats and we win the Division!

Re: Saints can clinch monday night!!!

Wow. This season has flown by, and with the possibility of clinching the NFC South after Week 12 is something that I don't think any of us saw happening at the beginning of the season. I know I didn't. This has been a dream season for Saints fans everywhere. If it is a dream, I don't want to wake up.

I didn't see this coming in preseason either. I was hoping for 12-4 or 13-3. Now, the skies the limit.

Edit this post title...it's false advertising...

If the Saints beat the Patriots, and then (theoretically) lost their final 5 games , that means they would be 3-3 in the division. If the Falcons won out, and went 11-5, they would be 4-2 in the division.

If Tampa beats Atlanta on Sunday, then we'll have our chance to clinch on MNF, for what's it worth.

Re: Saints can clinch monday night!!!

So IF a one-win team beats a team that's fighting for a wildcard spot and coming off 2 straight losses, then we have a chance to clinch on Monday Night. Yeah, I'm fired up and TOTALLy expecting that to happen.

Can we delete this entire thread?

Saints on verge of clinching NFC South title
November, 23, 2009

By Pat Yasinskas
Before we even get to December, the New Orleans Saints might have the NFC South title and the playoff berth that goes with it officially wrapped up.

For the first time this season, the NFL just sent out playoff-clinching scenarios. The Saints can clinch the NFC South with a win against New England, and either a loss or tie by Atlanta against Tampa Bay. Technically, the Saints also could clinch if they tie with New England and Atlanta loses to Tampa Bay.

The only other team that has a shot to clinch anything this early is Indianapolis. The Colts can clinch the AFC South title with a victory this week and a loss by Jacksonville.

"May God have mercy on those who doubted his Saints."

Here, have a praline, and relax a little. How bout some hot cocoa? all better now.

I thought Gamblers were laid back.

If the Saints beat the Patriots---they're 11-0. . . and they BEAT THA PATRIOTS. mathematics, schmathematics--- we're in, dont you think? Sure, numerically we could lose it. Numerically, I could develop a glandular problem, grow a horse schlong and steal Kim away from Reggie.

I wouldnt sit up late waiting for Skymikey to appear on this week's Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Nope, I'll be busy in Vegas signing stuff at the AVN awards, and promoting The Mikey Pump.

thread stays. It is imperfect, but so is Wrigley Field.
