...the game is going to end in a tie. It would be the worst moment in Falcons' history, missing the playoffs because we tied. It would be worse than missing because we lost, because the odds of a game ending in a tie are so high. You know it's going to happen. Sorry I had to be the one to start the thread. Somebody had to do it...

7-9 trumps 6-8-2.

Incorrect. 6-8-2 is exactly the same as 7-9 in terms of logging wins and losses, and Carolina has a better division record this season.

What happens is that the Saints and Panthers would, in the eyes of the NFL, be tied. The NFL considers a tie as one-half of a win; at 7-9 for the Saints and 6-8-2 for the Panthers, the two teams would have identical winning percentages of 43.75 percent. With the head-to-head tiebreaker a 1-1 split of their series, the Panthers would eke out the division tiebreaker with a 3-2-1 mark over the Saints 3-3 record.

It's cool man. I had originally thought that myself. Then right after I saw a whole segment on the subject on NFLN and they cleared it up for me.

It is more than just the math though.

I just figured that ties do not count as win or loss so if they are thrown out then NO would have a higher winning %.
