I hate the NFL.com wording on the tiebreaker procedures. They honestly confuse the hell out of me.
Start with the NFC. If ARZ beats SF next week and SF wins tomorrow, both are 11-5. SF gets ahead of them but if NO wins and CAR loses next week, NO wins division and CAR falls to 11-5.
CAR lost to ARZ so how does CAR still get in over ARZ?
Same with the AFC. If MIA wins next week and BAL loses, MIA is in. However, if they both win and are 9-7, they wait til KC SD plays to determine who gets in. If KC wins, BAL gets in. if SD wins, MIA gets in.
I dont get it.
