    Scoreboard watching

    We are in the playoff hunt, and it may be fun to keep track of the scenarios that will help us on a weekly basis.

    Here is what we should be watching for week 15. This scenario would put us at #6 in the playoffs.

    We need to beat Rams
    GB needs to beat CHI
    Buffalo needs to beat Seattle
    Atlanta needs to beat Giants
    Pitt needs to beat Dallas
    Cleveland needs to beat Washington

    Scenarios will be updated on a weekly basis until we are mathematically in the playoffs, or mathematically eliminated.

    Good idea. We are going to need a few upsets

    Oh man was I scoreboard watching last week. I've got the Sunday Ticket and they have a Game Mix channel (8 games at once) that I was watching during commercial. At one point all of the teams that we needed to lose were losing in the 4Q. Luckily we got TB out of the way now we just need to get a win and at least 1 more team in front to lost. Can't expect it to happen in 1 week so baby steps. Honestly with our tie breaker situation I think we almost need to win out to have a good shot. A loss this weekend will realistically knock us out even though not mathematically.

    If GB wins this week they will most likely be resting people at some point in our last game. Houston is already in but playing for their division.

    Unfortunately Houston's loss to NE is going to make their game against us all that more important. Being able to take the AFC playoffs through Houston is going to be a big deal for them and the earliest they will be able to clinch the #1 seed is against us. I also wouldn't count out the Colts beating them this weekend making the game do or die for both Houston and us.

    The Seattle game actually doesn't matter in this context. Dallas and Wash hold tiebreakers against us, so we need each to lose a game over the next three weeks (they play each other the last weekend--hoping for a tie). Seattle can win out and we could still get the #6 seed. If Chicago loses to either GB or DET, we would hold the tiebreaker over them based on division record. Seattle needs to lose 2 of their next 3 for us to have a chance of leap-frogging them.
    Over the next three weeks I am going to be a Pittsburgh, NO (ouch), Cleveland, Buffalo, and SF fan. Hope the football gods reward AP for his absolute dominance and help out.

    many of us would have been quite happy, as the season began, to hear we're 7-6 at this point............but the what ifs are annoying...

    we easily could and should have had the Colts, Skins, and Seahawks games...Packers, too, for that matter...........if we had 2 of those, we'd be leading or tied for the division lead at 9-4
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Fair enough. Still, the result of the Seattle game doesn't affect the Vikings standings this week. Still want them to lose so the vikes have a chance at the #5 seed.
    What are your thoughts on the Packers losing to the Bears so the Vikings still have a shot at winning the division? I know they would need A LOT of help, but at this point, mathematically, they can still win the division.

    I will root for some help this weekend.......................however I cannot sell my soul and root for the fudge packers under any circumstances. I am still hoping Green Gay misses the playoffs. That is almost as good as the Vikings making the playoffs. If the Vikings win out we will be in I predict.
