    This seems incorrect. Assuming we win out, we would have the same head to head and divisional record, so it would go to common opponents, which we would win thanks to beating SF. You're correct in saying that we wouldn't control our own destiny, because the Bear's would have a better potential record.

    We would have the tiebreaker over the Giants, but not the Cowboys. We stand a good chance if we win out, but that's a pretty big if.

    I want the Bears to win ... then we control our own destiny for a division crown.

    Well, I'm a Viking fan. Redundant disappointment has led to pessimism.
    If the Packers win one more game (Titans), they win the division regardless if both the Bears & us beat them. We don't control our own destiny if the Bears win, we need to rely on the Titans beating GB also. Even at that, it then comes down to tie breakers which would be. best won-lost-tied percentage in common games and if a tie there, best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    That's incorrect. Based on tie breaking procedures, we win a 3-way tie in the division at 10-6

    In fact, if we win out, the Bears beat the Packers and Cards, but lose to the Lions, and the Packers only beat the Titans, all three of us make the playoffs, with the Packers playing in Minnesota in the wild card round, and the Bears at New York Giants. (More help required, such as Seattle losing enough to get them below 10-6)

    THat's the part that's incorrect.

    If the Packers beat the Bears, then they clinch the division, end of story,

    If the bears win, then the Packers beat the Titans, and we beat the packers, and we win out, we win over the packers in a tiebreaker. It will then be up to the Bears to lose at least one game.

    If it ends up that we're all 10-6 after week 17, We win the division.

    Funny. Here we are talking about making the playoffs this late in the season with a rebuilding team and many here want to;
    dump the young QB
    dump the OC
    fire the coach
    fire the GM after his first year

    unbelievable.
    I guess I could include the trade Jared and trade AD sentiments of a minority here as well.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Thanks for bringing me back down to earth. I was flying high on the thoughts of the postseason and winning it all. Hopes are dashed. Bring out pity party supplies. You Bumlooka.
