Jax and Pit are both 4-2, and Jax has a win over the Steelers - wouldn't that give Jacksonville the Wildcard spot?

D'oh! My bad. I normally do this in the morning before anyone else is at work, and it takes ten minutes or so and I can write everything out. I didn't get to work first today (mmm...sleep...) so I tried to rush through it.

I hate to pile on, but I think technically Carolina should be #6, because between divisional teams, it doesn't have the 4 game minimum for the common games tiebreaker to apply. Therefore, in the tiebreaker for 4-2 wild card teams, Philadelphia wins over New York (G) because they are 1-1 in common games, while New York is 0-2. And then between Carolina and Philadelphia, Carolina makes it over Philadelphia because of their 3-1 conference record. Philadelphia ends up 7th, and New York ends up 8th.

Sweet, Carolina's back in it! Go NFC South!


And because I was curious (remember how poorly the NFC was doing against the AFC last year?) I decided to work up the game totals.

AFC: 50-53 overall

NFC: 52-49 overall

Head to Head: NFC winning at 17-15


Pretty even so far this season.

Damn...every time these seedings get redone, the Packers are still sucking at 1-5 every time.

Blast your correctness, sir! :-)

Wow!

I've been ignoring this season and it seem to have worked out the way it did the last time I ignored a season... the Bucs are kicking ass.

Now a question, is it because they are actually GOOD this year, or are they just getting REALLY lucky?

...sorry, I didn't feel like starting a whole new thread for this.

Cheap Plug:

FootballOutsiders.com has some advanced metrics for ranking football teams (as well as players). By their numbers, Tampa Bay is lucky for several reasons (they are ranked # 11).

1. The schedule. They beat 3 of the NFC North teams, the highest ranked of which is Detroit at #20, and beat the offensively inept Miami and Buffalo, then lost to Old Man Testaverde's Jets.

2. They're getting lucky with fumbles. They have had 8 fumbles, and lost only 2. Meanwhile, their opponents have had 13 fumbles and lost 8. Fumbles are recovered by the offense about 50% of the time, which means if the Bucs had average luck, it would be a net change of 4 turnovers in 6 games. Nearly a turnover a game is a big deal when you are in as many close games as the Bucs seem to be. Their luck will change, and when it does, close wins become close loses.

The defense is good, don't get me wrong. But how they do with the untested Chris Simms at QB remains to be seen.

It should be noted they also have San Diego at #3, if we're referring to the same rankings. But at least they explain them well.

Yep, San Diego is better than their record, and Tampa is worse than theirs. I think the games this week showed that.

Well, even if Tampa Bay was 0-6 heading into the game, they'd be worse than their record. Dropping a game against the Niners on five figgies? Oof.
