1st round byes
#1 Indy (14-0), #2 San Diego (11-3)

Wildcard weekend
#6 Denver (8-6) @ #3 New England (9-5)
#5 Baltimore (8-6) @ #4 Cincinnati (9-5)

Step-by-step breakdown of the 7-7 teams

Div tie breakers
1. Miami beat the Jets twice
2. Jax split head to head with Tenn, swept Houston and went 3-1 in the mini conference. After eliminating Houston, they split Tenn so they win on div record, 3-3 vs 2-4
3. Pitt was all alone in the North

Between those 3 div leaders, Pitt was 4-6 in the conference, so we go again between Miami and Jax. Miami beat Jax so they get the #7 seed

Now, we compare the Jets, Pitt, and Jax. Pitt has a 4-6 conf record, so we dump them and go again between the Jets and Jax. Jax beat the Jets, so they get #8

South tie breaker:
1. Tenn split Hou
2. Tenn has a 2-4 div record vs Hou 1-5

We compare the Jets, Pitt and Tenn. Tenn lost to both Jets and Pitt, so we dump them and compare the Jets and Pitt. Jets have a 5-5 conf record vs Pitt's 4-6, so the Jets get the #9 seed

Now we compare Pitt and Tenn and Pitt beat Tenn, so they get the #10 seed

Tenn split Hou and has a 2-4 div record vs Hou's 1-5 so they get the #11 and #12 respectively.


NFC
1. New Orleans (13-1) South Champions, will clinch #1 seed with win/tie OR Minn loss/tie

Didn't Oakland trade their 1st round pick to the Pats for Richard Seymour?

Yes they did trade a 1st round pick, but it is the 2011 draft pick, not the 2010 draft that I'm covering.

GAH. I'm glad you caught that. I'm always typing it up in the early AM. It sounds right in my head at the time. Stupid homonyms.

Two consecutive first-round picks for San Francisco? Watch both of them hold out, miss games, then the Niners sign them both for about what they were offering anyways... then turn towards Gregg Easterbrook as his head explodes in a mushroom cloud that'll be visible from Buenos Aires.

Not only did the Bears trade away their pick for Cutler, they've also traded their 2nd round pick in '10 for still-not-living-up-to-it DE Gaines Adams.

I'm wondering if there's an angle with next season being uncapped, did the Bears dump their high picks just to avoid the holdouts that will ensue for rookies & agents trying to cash in one last time vs. the possible rookie pay scale of a new agreement that could start in '11?

(Okay, being the Bears, I'm really thinking they're trying to duck the bigger contracts before a possible rookie pay scale starting in '11.)

ESPN.com is reporting that the Vikings may be trying to deal Randy Moss if anyone is willing to listen. Looks like they may be tired of apologizing for him. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=1973713
