Race for the Playoffs and #1 seed...
« on: October 27, 2020, 09:41:25 AM »
... after laying an egg coming out of the bye, the Packers forced their way back to the front of the Pack.

NFC

1.) G.B. Packers 5-1-0 .833

Wins tie break over Seattle based on best win percentage in conference games.

2.) Seahawks 5-1-0 .833

3.) Buccaneers 5-2-0 .714

4.) Eagles 2-4-1 .357

5.) da Bears 5-2-0 .714

Wins tie break over Arizona based on best win percentage in conference games. Division tie break was initially used to eliminate Los Angeles (Arizona wins tie break over Los Angeles based on best win percentage in division games).

6.) Cardinals 5-2-0 .714

Wins tie break over Los Angeles based on best win percentage in division games.

7.) L.A. Rams 5-2-0 .714

8.) N.O. Saints 4-2-0 .667

9.) S.F. 49ers 4-3-0 .571

10.) Lions 3-3-0 .500

Yes, its early, and the team needs to be focused on one game at a time, but it is an update on the race towards the 2nd season for my Packer brethren

The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.

I think there is only 1 bye in the playoffs this year so that #1 seed is important.  The other 6 teams play on the wildcard weekend.  I'm sure Seattle will be in the mix but their division is pretty tough.  Agree, just gotta keep on winning one game at a time.

NFC West probably beats each other up, TB is the team think need to watch now for #1 seed and unfortunately do not have tie break.

TB remaining game:
@ Giants
Saints
@Panthers
Rams
Chiefs
Vikings
@Falcons
@Lions
Falcons

Some definite games could lose on that remaining schedule.

Think Packers remaining schedule a bit more difficult with @49ers, @Colts, Bears x2 and Titans

But do we want the Packers to have a bye week? After all, it was a short time ago that a "Bye, Matt..." thread bemoaning how terrible the Packers play after a bye week was posted. So, wouldn't a bye week be the worst thing for the team? Color me  ??? >:( :-\

ricky, you have been too good and too long of a contributor here to turn into a troll.

Its possible although a longshot, you could see all 4 of those NFL West teams in the playoffs.

The NFC West is a talented division - brutal schedule including games against each other should Knock at least one of them out. I think the 49ers are likely the odd team out largely because of injuries. However, there is a lot of football still left to be played.

On the other hand the NFC (L)east is unbelievably pathetic this year.

The West teams will all get to rack up easy wins against the East.  They'll be inflicting losses on each other, but there are 7 playoff teams this year.  They may well have 4 of the best 6 teams in the conference, but it will be tough for them to get all four into the playoffs.  Not impossible, though.  For San Fran, whether they can beat the Packers again might be a significant factor.
