Week 6, Game 1: Steelers @ Titans (THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL)
N/A: AFC opponents

SUNDAY OCTOBER 14th
Week 6, Game 2: Chiefs @ Buccaneers
Why it is important: Bucs are a division opponent. Saints need to start closing the distance between them and the rest of the division.
Desired outcome: Pull for the Chiefs. Bucs play very well at home, and the Chiefs just lost a heartbreaker vs. a very good Ravens team. Will the Chiefs be able to regroup and play a great game? It’s a matter of how well they are coached. RB Jammal Charles had 125 yds. Rushing (vs. the Ravens) in the FIRST HALF! Chiefs’ QB Matt Cassel was injured last week, and that will slow down the Chiefs’ offense.
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 4.5 out of 10

Week 6, Game 3: Colts @ Jets
N/A: AFC opponents

Week 6, Game 4: Bengals @ Browns
N/A: AFC opponents

Week 6, Game 5: Lions @ Eagles
Why it is important: Both teams are NFC rivals
Desired outcome: Saints are chasing BOTH teams in the NFC (conference record), but the Eagles may still be the stronger team. You may disagree, and I wouldn’t blame you. For now, I say pull for the Lions.
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 4.5 out of 10

Week 6, Game 6: Raiders @ Falcons
Why it is important: Falcons are our division rival, undefeated, and are (obviously) well ahead of the Saints.
Desired outcome: Pull for the Raiders. Oakland may ambush the Falcons, who pulled off an emotional “nailbiter” last week.
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 4 out of 10

Week 6, Game 7: Rams @ Dolphins
Why it is important: Rams are a conference rival.
Desired outcome: Pull for the Dolphins. Rams are a much improved team, and their confidence is growing. Reggie Bush is still among the league leaders in rushing, and will likely have a good game in South Florida (Miami).
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 5.5 out of 10

Week 6, Game 8: Cowboys @ Ravens
Why it is important: Cowboys are a conference rival.
Desired outcome: Pull for the Ravens. Cowboys are coming off a BYE, and are in the thick of the NFC East race. Ravens are in control of the AFC North, and would like nothing more than to make a STATEMENT vs. the Cowboys. Ray Lewis will have the Ravens amped-up.
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 6 out of 10

Week 6, Game 9: Bills @ Cardinals
Why it is important: Cardinals are a conference rival
Desired outcome: Pull for the Bills. Cardinals are ticked-off after being brought back down to earth from the ranks of the unbeaten. They will be at home, and know that they are tied with the 49’ers for first place in the division. They won’t need much motivation in this one, but let’s hope that the Bills win the turnover battle.
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 3.5 out of 10

Week 6, Game 10: Patriots @ Seahawks
Why it is important: Seahawks are a conference rival.
Desired outcome: Pull for the Patriots. New England has found a running game, and that is BAD news for any opponent (given how well they throw the ball). On the other hand, the Seahawks play very well at home. Let’s hope the Patriots play a well balanced game, and emerge with the “W.”
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 6 out of 10

Week 6, Game 11: Giants @ 49ers
Why it is important: Both teams are conference rivals.
Desired outcome: Hard to pick this one (you could make good arguments either way). The way I see it, the 49’ers are playing LIGHTS OUT in the last few games. They look strong, and will definitely be in the thick of it in the playoff hunt. But you never know WHICH Giants’ team will show up. Giants matchup well vs. the 49’ers in this one, and somehow …I smell a possible upset. Pull for the Giants.
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 5.5 out of 10

Week 6, Game 12: Vikings @ Redskins
Why it is important: Both teams are conference rivals.
Desired outcome: Pull for the Redskins. Vikings have gotten off to a TREMENDOUS start, and are leading the NFC North. Percy Harvin is playing at BEAST level, and Adrian Peterson is finding his game again. Redskins are still rebuilding, and appear to be in disarray. Let’s hope that RG3 has a monster game, and the Vikings LOSE the turnover battle.
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 4 out of 10

Week 6, Game 13: Packers @ Texans
Why it is important: Packers are a conference rival.
Desired outcome: Pull for the Texans. Houston is playing as well as any team in the entire NFL. They are balanced, and looking scary-good! Packers come into this game as the underdog.
Confidence factor for a good outcome: 6 out of 10

MONDAY, OCTOBER 15th
Week 6, Game 14: Broncos @ Chargers
N/A: AFC opponents

Week 6 Bye teams: Bears, Jaguars, Panthers & Saints

Re: WHO WHODATS WANT WINNING (WEEK 6)

Refresh my memory because I get this mixed up with college football every year.

Do we want the opponents we lost to win? Doesn't that help our strength of schedule or something.

I think the Texans won't be hard to pull for because they're tough this season.

Re: WHO WHODATS WANT WINNING (WEEK 6)

In a nut shell, we want Atlanta to lose to all Division Games.
We want all NFC South teams to lose all conference games.

As many of those two scenarios as we can get will move us up the ladder.

Re: WHO WHODATS WANT WINNING (WEEK 6)

We're only 0-1 in our division right now.
I know outside division NFC loses mean a lot but aren't in-division win/losses more important than Conference wins and losses?

Teams in the NFC North and West limp in but that usually because the division leader is 8-8. NFC South always has a leader out front, and Atl is filling that role right now..... but they still have to play us twice, as well as TB and one more match against Carolina......

Re: WHO WHODATS WANT WINNING (WEEK 6)

Best Division record get Division Champs and a Play off Spot. Technically we could be 6-12 with all 6 wins being NFC South divisional wins and we get in.

Wild cards go to best overall record first. <- This will take a lot of help...

I will make a post that probably should be a sticky since this comes up every year about playoff births.

Halo,

A team that has already beaten us only matters if we end the season with an identical record. Other than that, go with what X626 said in his 2 earlier posts...

Re: WHO WHODATS WANT WINNING (WEEK 6)

Home field advantage is no longer an option unfortunately. We need to win all of our division and conference games to have a chance at a wild card.
We must not let another team from the NFC south win another game against us.

I'm pretty sure Division record is the second tie breaker. It's overall record first, if there is a tie, then head to head winner and if that's a split then it's division records.

NFL Tie-Breaking Procedures

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
1.Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
2.Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
3.Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
4.Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
5.Strength of victory.
6.Strength of schedule.
7.Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
8.Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
9.Best net points in common games.
10.Best net points in all games.
11.Best net touchdowns in all games.
12.Coin toss

It doesn't matter what technicians you use, they would not be able to give you this scenario. Besides, I am not necessarily looking at runaway leaders, I would be hoping that teams below them lose so the playoff spots remain tight.

Re: WHO WHODATS WANT WINNING (WEEK 6)

The 1992 Chargers (exactly 20 yrs ago) started 0-4, and went into the bye week (Week 6) with a 1-4 record... just like the Saints are today.

What happened?

San Diego finished the season with an 11-5 record, and made the playoffs. They were the only team starting at 0-4 to make the postseason.

It's time for history to repeat itself!

Can I get a WhoDat?
