Sunday games open thread

New, comments

It's difficult to even contemplate watching NFL football today after what transpired last night at Texas Stadium. But, for those of you who are like me and still want to desperately make the playoffs, there are a couple of very important games happening this Sunday.

From what I can gather we are rooting hard for the Vikings to beat the Falcons and for the Chargers to beat the Bucs.

This is an open thread for the Sunday games, including the night game which features the big showdown between the Giants and the Panthers.

Playoff scenarios:

If the Falcons lose today, they can't match us on conference record which is the second tie-breaker and we would get in as long as we win next week.

If the Bucs lose today, the best they could do is tie us for overall record and we own the head-to-head tiebreaker over them, the first tie-breaking criteria as long as we win next week.

It doesn't matter what the Eagles do today, if we beat them next week, we end up with a better overall record.

It doesn't matter what the Bears do today because if we win next week we have the better overall conference record.

If any of that is wrong, let me know and I'll update it.
