On the off chance
 
On the off chance the Saints lose the next two games and the packers lose. There will be 4 10-6 teams who has the tiebreaker with who?

If the Buccaneers win out and the Saints fall in their final two games (putting both teams at 10-6), Tampa Bay would get a playoff spot over New Orleans.

However, the Saints and Buccaneers can both make the playoffs at 10-6 in two scenarios:

1. If the Giants lose their final game (at Redskins on Jan. 2) and the Packers fall at home to the Bears on Jan. 2,

those outcomes would put the Giants and Packers both at 9-7.

2. If the Giants win their final game and the Eagles fall in their remaining two contests (vs. Vikings on Dec. 28 and vs. Cowboys on Jan. 2).

That outcome would put the Eagles and Saints tied at 10-6 and the Saints would own a better NFC record, giving them the playoff birth.

I'm sorry; I just can't see us falling to T.B. in the final game.

Me either but just wondering.

Sorry
I think my post is inaccurate because of the giants' loss.

Can someone tell me what this nonsense is that Tampa Bay has the tie breaker over New Orleans? Didn't we beat them? They have more losses than we do, how do they have the tie breaker. This is confusing. :confused:

If they beat us they finish 10-6, 3-3 Div, 8-4 NFC, which is identical to our record so it has to be common opponents.

They won, we lost - Arizona, Cleveland,

We won, they lost - Pittsburgh

All else is equal so they'd win the common opponent tie-breaker.

All possible scenarios. Knock yourself out...

Have we actually started thinking about having lost the last two? Really?

Why wouldn't you? It's plausible.
