How are we the #1 3-1 team?

I would think the tiebreakers would be conf record.

Any ideas?

Several times there have been scenarios entering the final week where a team had to win by 'x' points to guarantee a playoff spot, but it never actually materialized because of won-loss results that day. To the best of my knowledge, it's never gone beyond winning percentage in common games.

I wouldn't want to be in center city after we lose a coin toss and have to miss the playoffs..... devil03.gif

Most 3-1 teams are easy, they have worse conference records than us.

With the Falcons, their strength of victory is .583 - ours is .166 (I wish I didn't look that up, the teams we've beaten are a combined 2-10)

Hmm, beats the hell out of me. It also makes no sense that the Panthers would be ahead of them in their division. Maybe it's just too early for anyone at espn to give a shit.

FWIW,

I think that the year we won the Div w Vermeil, we had to not lose by more than 21 points ore something at DAL to win the division. That last game at DAL, we were down more than 21 so at one point we would have lost the division, but then we came back to make it a division winning close loss!

Sorry pal, I was born during his last year here and can't reminisce with you. biggrin.gif

It's also fun reminding Bills fans that if you were born the last year they won a playoff game, you can legally drink now.
