re: Vikings or Seahawks - who are you rooting for tonight?
Check my math on the espn playoff machine but....

If Seattle wins tonight I project they also win next 3 (rams, panthers, cardinals)and head into week 17 matchup with San Francisco at 13-2.

If that happens, San Francisco MUST WIN Sunday against New Orleans to stay relevant in NFC West race. SF loses to Saints and Seattle wins next 4 then Week 17 becomes irrelevant. Seattle can rest and still get bye week after loss in the tie breaker.

If Seattle loses tonight - the Saints game on Sunday becomes less important to the 49ers. Even if 49ers lose to the Saints, and then win the next two weeks (falcons & rams) the game on week 17 becomes a true head to head match up for winning the division.

Seattle wins tonight - SF beats Saints and then loses to Seattle - 49ers still settles for wild card. Still Saints game is irrelevant vs week 17.

All i am saying is - i think we should root for Minnesota cause it relieves MUST WIN attitude from 49ers on Sunday.

Head-to-head is the first tie-breaker
Saints and Niners haven’t played yet. Assuming we win Sunday then we’re in the #1 spot.


But Seahawks and 49ers have. So a Seahawks win gives the tiebreaker to them over 49ers. 49ers drop to 5 as the wild card and Saints have the head to head over Seattle

I've read all the analysis on here, and it sounds as though I have a reason to watch and casually root against Seahawks. I hate Pete and Bob and Ted and Alice and Carol anyway so go Vikes! :puke:

re: Vikings or Seahawks - who are you rooting for tonight?
You want Seattle to lose tonight so they can beat SF Week 17 and give us a 1 game wiggle room on both, even if we lose to SF. SF and NO could end with same record and we would be higher seed because Seattle would win West. But in order for us to get the 1 seed in this scenario GB or Minn would have to lose a game outside of their matchup

But they are 2nd in their division. A wild card team cannot get a buy

I hate to say it but after thinking about it the Vikings is the correct answer.

Don't care, does not matter if saints don't take care of business next week. Whatever happens btw Hawks, vs bikes happens. Move on and attend the saints game next weekend. Simple enough right???

What a terrible decision by Zimmer with 3 timeouts and the 2 minute warning left. Punt that shite.

I say Vikings. Gives us a game plus the tiebreaker over them. When we bit the San Francisco Silly Nannies we will also have a game and the tiebreaker over them.

That’s all very possible.


LA has turned it on as of late. They could win out and sneak into the playoffs.
