    Re: NFC Playoff Picture

    Don't contemplate the playoffs just yet. Yeah, we do look pretty good as far as the schedule is concerned, but never forget the 6-0 start and the last SECOND loss that lost us a playoff birth and a division title. Stay open

    From the Star Tribune;

    [size=18px]NFC Playoff Race[/size]
    Last update: December 4, 2005 at 8:31 PM

    The Vikings, after winning five in a row, are in position for a wild-card playoff spot, and two games behind Chicago in the NFC North. In a wild-card race, the Vikings would lose head-to-head tiebreakers to Carolina, Atlanta and Tampa Bay.

    Sittin' pretty

    Seattle • 9-2 Clinched weak West

    Carolina • 9-3 In South driver's seat

    Chicago • 9-3 Defense drove eighth in a row

    N.Y. Giants • 8-4 Win over Dallas big for tiebreaker

    In the hunt

    Tampa Bay • 8-4 Has won three of past four

    Atlanta • 7-5 Plays Tampa on Christmas Eve

    Dallas • 7-5 Only one division game left

    Vikings • 7-5 Would a 3-1 finish be enough?

    Uphill battle

    Wash. • 6-6 Kept season alive with victory

    Phila. • 5-6 A must-win tonight vs. Seattle

    There is this little voice in the back of my head saying this..
    "Every year we started out as THE team to push for after the first half of the season.. the playoffs surely in our path (div title) our reaches in the playoffs have not come well.. now that we are these underdogs that noone counts on.. just what kind of mnetality will we have moving into the playoffs?"

    Re: NFC Playoff Picture

    I think you forgot that there are three wild cards now. Wild card weekend will include three wild cards and the lowest seeded division winner. So we are in great position for a playoff birth if we keep winning!

    Do you have a link on this? I didn't realize things changed with the wildcards. I don't see how it would work out though, that would leave an odd number of teams playing to move on to the next round. The only way it would work is if someone has a bye up to the conference championship game.

    There are only six teams from each conference in the playoffs. The four division winners and two wildcard teams.
