I don't think this is right. If Washington and Dallas fall then the Giants take their division and don't compete with us for the wildcard.


I'm conceding Washington stays ahead of us and doesn't fall, therefore they will need to win the NFC East. If Washington wins division, we don't have to worry about them, we only have to worry about the Giants for a Wild Card. If NYG lose 3 of 4, they likely won't be winning the division.

re: Scenarios for the Playoffs


I don't understand why the Giants have to lose 3/4? I thought head-to-head was the first tie breaker. If they lose to us and Atlanta that puts them at 9-7 same as the Saints (assuming Saints win out).

Isn't tie breaker order
1) head to head
2) conference record
3) common opponents or whatever

re: Scenarios for the Playoffs


I used the playoff machine and here's my list of the best scenario the Saints have of making the playoffs

Week 14:

1)Saints @ Giants - Saints
2)Bears @ Vikings - Vikings
3)Cowboys @ Bengals - Bengals
4)Doesn't help us but realistically let's assume Bucs and Seahawks win, Redskins lose

Week 15:
1)Giants @ Falcons - Falcons
2)Pack @ Bears - Pack
3)Bucs @ Saints - Saints
4)Seahawks @ Bills - Bills (Cross country and down starting corners)
5) Redskins @ Browns - Redskins
Assume vikes and cowboys win

Week 16 (best week for saints to catch up)
1)Saints @ Cowboys - Saints
2)Giants @ Ravens - Ravens
3)Vikings @ Texans - Texans
4)49ers @ Seahawks - 49ers
assume packers, redskins, bucs, and bears win

Week 17
1)Panthers @ Saints - Saints
2)Bears @ Lions - Lions
Assume all other worstcase scenario relevant NFC teams win

Final Records

Saints 9-7 6th seed
Seahawks 9-7 5th seed
Skins 9-7
Giants 8-8
Bucs 9-7
Vikings 9-7
Bears 9-7

If it was just two teams tied at 9-7, thats how it would play out. But there will more than likely be 3-4 teams at 9-7. Head to head is "Applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others". None of that will be the case. NYG wins next tie break over New Orleans based on best win percentage in conference games.

re: Scenarios for the Playoffs


Some things you have to look at though is high seeded teams resting starters. By the time Atlanta is playing NY, they will probably have the 1 seed locked up. Those bastards would lose on purpose to keep us out

You make a good point, but week 15 is too early to start resting players. Everyone else off the top of my head could still get switched around seeding wise up through week 17.
