Final NFC Contenders (merged)

Seattle is the ONLY NFC team that has definitely filled a spot in the playoffs. So Seattle at 11-2 is in.
Seattle (11-2)
Tampa (9-4)
Carolina (9-4)
Atlanta (7-5) before playing New Orleans on MNF
Chicago (9-4)
Minnesota (8-5)
12-18 vs Dallas (8-5)
12-24 vs NY Giants (9-4)
1-1 @ Philadelphia (5-7)
GIANTS (9-4)
12-17 vs Kansas City (8-5)
12-24 @ Washington (7-6)
12-31 @ Oakland (4-8)
12-18 @ Washington (7-6)
12-24 @ Carolina (9-4)
1-1 vs St Louis (5-8)
Thats 8 teams all in contention for 6 spots. I'll go ahead and give #1 to Seattle. You can also bet that at least 2 teams from the nfc south will probably get in leaving 5 teams to contend for 3 spots. If you say the Giants win the nfc east then theres now 4 teams for 2 spots and my best guess is that the 4 teams will be the Redskins, Cowboys, Vikings or Bears, and probably Falcons. I haven't exactly played out each teams schedule to see what exactly needs to happen yet. If anyone would like to add some more to the point scenarios please do so. I sure hope the Skins can get their hands on one of the last spots!

Re: final nfc contenders

We win out we get in and it's as simple as that. We would have only two NFC conference losses and that would be better than all of the teams in contention for the wildcard spots.

Yep, for the first time in a long time all we have to do to get to the post-season is win our games and not worry about anyone else.

Re: final nfc contenders

The playoffs are set like this. 4 division winners make the playoffs, 2 teams get wildcard. So it looks something like this right now. Take the best team from each division and give them a spot.

Tampa Bay
New York Giants

leaving a bunch of other teams in contention for two wildcard spots. the teams that still have a chance at wildcard are:

Re: final nfc contenders

Aside from the 4 division heads, I would say that either Tampa or Carolina (whoever does not win the division) is probably going to get in since they both have 9 wins. Tampa would have to lose their remaining games for us to overtake them and Carolina could win only one more (and since they play teams like Dallas and Atlanta, we would want them to win). That means us, Dallas, Atlanta, and Minnesota are in contention for the last spot. I do believe that if we win out we are in beacuse of our conference record.

Here are the other team's schedules:

Atlanta: New Orleans, @Chicago, @Tampa, Carolina
Dallas: @Washington, @Carolina, St. Louis
Minnesota: Pittsburgh, @Baltimore, Chicago

Really, its not out of the question that each of these teams even loses two games, let alone only one, but I think our biggest threat is Minnesota. Also, we can still look to win the division by winning out and hoping the Giants lose to either the Chiefs or Raiders.

Basically, for us, the playoffs have already started. Win and advance, lose and go home. Every week is a must-win. If we win out, we're in.

Re: final nfc contenders

It really is that simple, but can get complicated when we start talking about wild cards. Biggest thing we win out. Second we need Giants to loose to KC or Oakland. It gets no simpler we are in as Division Champs if they choke or give up one of those and us.

Re: final nfc contenders

if we win out(a huge IF as many of us have said) then it basically will come down to the Skins, Falcons and Vikes for the final wildcard. They each have a game on the Skins but dod have some pretty difficult games ahead. Atl has 3 losable games against TB, Chi and Car while Minn has Two losable games against Pitt and Chi. I think we can count on at least one of those 5 games going our way. Making it a two team battle for the final spot with us hoping the other team drops a game too.
All this is meaningless unless we win out. If we win out and miss the playoffs I will be content to have gone 10-6 and won the games we needed to win to get a shot.
Time to focus on the Turds and only the Turds.

NFC Playoff Possibilities

Has anyone figured out what the Redskins Playoff chances look like after Week 14? I am working with the assumption that we have to win our last 3 games. If we don't, I don't really want to know our chances, because they don't exist.

Who do we cheer for down the strech? I am kind of pulling for Tampa to win their division, because we will lose a tiebreaker to them for a Wildcard spot. We can take care of Dallas ourselves. Minnesota and Carolina worry me.
