Saints need 4/4 for HFA

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Saints overs Titans (we have a horrible historical record against them) Saints over Panthers Seahawks over Niners - probably Vikings over Packers - maybe. Packers sure won’t lose to Detroit unless resting Rogers...

Re: Saints need 4/4 for HFA

I'd settle for the 2 seed right now

Seattle wins west, we own tie-breaker (we're minimum 2 seed)

OR

Vikes beat Pack (we'd be a game better, if we win out)

Bringing in a disgruntled fresh horse in Javorious Jenkins, a hurt Derrick Henry...not looking good for the Titans. They are however still in the playoff race and will show up with a purpose.

We’re going to be the #3 seed. The stupid loss to Atlanta cost us dearly. If I had to guess, I predict we’ll host the Vikings in the wild card round and then have to go to Lambeau.

Vikings got hit hard by injuries at RB ... we may need to let them have Murray back for a game LOL

It doesn't work that way, the only two ways we get the 2 seek is if Seattle loses to Arizona and then beats the 49ers, or if the Vikes beat the Packs(or the Packs lose any game). Ironically, the game today didn't even matter if we would have lost to the Titans and GB would have lost to the Vikings, we still would have gotten the 2 seed. If Seattle just won the west we would not win the tie breaker over them, because it wouldn't be a tie breaker between us and Seattle.. it'd be a 3-way tie between us Seattle and GB and we'd be the odd team out. We get the 1 seed if GB loses and Seattle beats the 49ers.

Here’s a real simple way to look at it:

Re: Saints need 4/4 for HFA

The Seahawks loss adds another scenario into getting a bye now.

Packers lose either game and we win gives us a bye as the 2 seed

Seattle beats 49ers and we win give us a bye as the 2 seed.

Both scenarios occurring simultaneously gives us the 1 seed(though both scenarios would have always given us the 1 seed, nothing has really changed in regards to the 1 seed). If Seattle would have beaten Arizona, the only way we could have gotten a bye is if the Packers lost(and we'd got the 1 seed if Seattle beat the 49ers). If Seattle would have beaten the 49ers and Arizona, and the Packers would have won out, the most we could have gotten was the 3 seed. The reason being is Seattle, Green Bay, and NO would have been in a 3 way tie. The only other way, which would have been highly unlikely is if the 49ers and Seattle tied next week. The Arizona victory over Seattle opened a lot of doors for us in terms of getting a bye.

Well the Seahawks aren’t beating the 49ers next week. We have to trust Kirk “0-8 in prime time” Cousins without Dalvin Cook to beat the Packers.
