Not looking good:
We win out
We can make it in over Redskins, Cowboys, Vikings, and Bears if they all have 8 losses.
Which means the Bears lose out, including a loss to the Cardinals. And the Redskins would need to lose two of Philly/Browns/Dallas. More likely than the Bears losing to the Cardinals, but still not too high of odds.
We also would need the Rams to lose 2 more games.
The Cowboys, Vikings, and Rams could all lose the required # of games and vault us ahead of them. The Bears could drop 2 games to Packers/Lions easily enough the way they have been playing but losing to the Cards will be us clinging on to hope. At least it's in Arizona.
What will suck is if we finish just 1 game short, you could point to any of our Redskins/Panthers/Chiefs/Falcons stupid losses where we either had no business losing, or were so close despite tons of stupid mistakes.
