I wonder what Deion will have to say now about our record

"They're a different kind of 7-4." Congrats on your Cowboys with a different 7-4 record beating the lowly 49ers <_< . As it stands now, Falcons are still 7th in the NFC ahead of his team as the Redskins has the tiebreaker over us due to their strength of victory (i.e. the teams they've beaten have a better record than the one's we've beaten 30-46-1 vs 28-49, assuming Saints lose Monday night)

Are you assuming we'd tie with the Redskins for conference record? That would be the first tie-breaker. Then several other weird steps, from NFL.com:

If it is necessary to break ties to determine the two Wild-Card clubs from each conference, the following steps will be taken.

If the tied clubs are from the same division, apply division tie breaker.

If the tied clubs are from different divisions, apply the following steps.

Two Clubs

Head-to-head, if applicable.

Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.

Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.

Strength of victory.

Strength of schedule.

Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.

Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.

Best net points in conference games.

Best net points in all games.

Best net touchdowns in all games.

Coin toss.

I can't believe they even have "coin toss." Just add an extra game. In fact, they should just have them play a game after conference schedule. Everything else is B.S.

can't really count the conference record right now because we both have 3 conference losses. They have a better record (6-3) than us (5-3) technically because we've played one more interconference games (3) against the AFC than them (2). Furthermore, the common opponent tiebreaker is not in play yet because we've only played 2 common opponents so far. By the time the season is over, the common opponent quota will be met when we play St. Louis (who they lose to, huge) and New Orleans, and when they play Philly again. So far they are 2-1 and we're 1-1. It may come down to strength of victory, which doesn't favor us because our closing opponents have a worse record than theirs, but that's IF, and I mean IF they win those games, which i doubt.
