First, it's great to be back in the tournament.
Now, having said that, what does the draw look like?
CosbySweater outlined the steps that would be required for Dallas to get the #2 seed and accompanying buy. I am going under the assumption that Minnesota doesn't lose out (while hoping that they do).
If Dallas wins this weekend they clinch the division b/c a 2-0 head to head record vs Philly.
If Arizona loses, that makes us the 3 seed (11-5 vs. 10-6).
If Arizona wins, we should STILL get the 3 seed on the strength of victory tiebreaker (I think we will have beaten teams w/69 wins vs. 62 wins for the teams the Cardinals beat, but there is still a weekend left).
CORRECTION: AZ owns the tie breaker over us, so if we both win they are 3rd and we are 4th.
As the 3 seed, we play the #6 seed, which is Philly if GB wins (with both guys at 11-5 GB wins on the record vs common foes) If we win and AZ wins then we are the 4 seed and Philly is the 5 seed.
If Dallas loses, then we are on the road in Philly b/c GB has a tiebreaker over us.
GB Wins PHI @ Dallas
AZ Wins PHI @ Dallas
GB Wins @ PHI
AZ Wins @ PHI
This reminds me of 2007 when we swept NYG in the regular season then lost the third game.
I think its tough to beat a NFC eastern foe three times.
I STAND CORRECTED, IT APPEARS ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROUND 3 OF DAL / PHI.
