    Every NFC playoff scenario for Week 17

    Every NFC playoff scenario for Week 17

    Great. Only two ways the Vikings can get the #2 seed. We have to win and Eagles have to lose.

    FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC.

    Isn't that just one way that involves 2 outcomes?

    Of the three games, there are 8 outcomes, two of them allow us to take #2 seed.

    I suppose if you're counting "Eagles Lose & Vikings Tie" as one of the scenarios, then, yes, there are 2.

    Well, at least week 17 will be an interesting weekend of football with three good games to watch and two of them possibly being repeated in the wild card round.

    Of those 8 scenarios, 3 of them having us host a wild card game against Dallas.

    Re:Every NFC playoff scenario for Week 17

    Good link. Although I would like to think in a more statistically way.

    Lets say every team has 50% chance of winning, and 50% risk of loosing.

    That would make the Vikings the #2 seed in 25% of the scenarios. The AZ vs GB game aint into the equation.

    Thinking about it, I think we are a better team than the Giants, so I would perhaps give us a 55% chance, and thinking even more about it the NYG doesnt have anything to play for, so I'll buff up the chances of us winning to 65%.

    Not knowing so much about the cowboys ill still leave them 50% of winnning.

    That gives us a 0,5*0,65=0,325 or 32,5% chance of getting the #2 seed.

    Ive seen the spread and the vikes are favorite by 8,5 points and the cowboys are favorite by 3 so the chances might creep up to 35% instead.

    Also, the hometeam (both Vikings and Cowboys) generally wins in 63% when playing at home. If you count that 0,63*0,63=0,3969 or 39,69%

    My two cents

    Re:Every NFC playoff scenario for Week 17

    part of an article...

    ...The easiest playoff scenario belongs to the Eagles, who can win both the NFC East and the second seed with a win over the Cowboys. If the Eagles lose, the Vikings can take back the bye with a win over the Giants - but even that isn't a guarantee anymore.

    Yet if both the Eagles and Vikings lose, the Cardinals can sneak up and take the bye week by beating the Packers, since they hold all the tiebreakers. But if the Cardinals and Vikings both lose, and the Cowboys beat the Eagles, then Dallas goes from the sixth seed to the second just like that...
    If Dallas gets the second seed I will be pissed.

    I see the Vikings play at 1pm and the Eagles-Cowboys at 4;15pm. Any chance the NFL changes the time for the Vikings to Sunday night.
