Was looking at this week's games and I noticed something:

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Even with a win, the Saints will be 2nd in the division, since Carolina & Tampa Bay play each other this week. Unless the game ends in a tie...

I think they would be in first because they beat a NFC South division opponent.

I thought about that for a second, but tie breakers don't count till the end of the season. So even though it wouldn't matter anyway, we should show up as tied for first. If I'm wrong, then that would be a very strange statistic.

Technically you would be correct; Saints & ? would both be 1-0.

But in tie-breaking,'if the season ended today' scenario, the team with the better division record advances.

I mainly posted that before the $hyt-storm of posts that are on the horizon when Kommisar Goodell re-suspends Will Smith & Jonathan Vilma.
