    We have a 3-2 conference record

    By the way our conference record is 5-3. We have beaten G.Bay, Chicago, Detroit, Carolina, New Orleans and lose to G.Bay, Chicago and T.Bay.
    I'm guessing he meant Division record.
    Likely, the Bears, Vikes, and GB will all end up 4-2.
    Part of me hopes GB beats the Bears which would give GB a tie breaker over the Vikes by Division record, but as they are 2 games back, I'm fine with that to knock the Bears 2 games back as well!
    I'm not. It would mean they are one game closer to us ( if they would win and we lose one ) and they would have the tie-breaker over us.. If we win and they win i don't mind but let the bears hunt for a playoff spot, they have almost 0% chance to have the tie-breaker over us.
    Personally I want the Bears to beat the Pack ... that pretty much gets the Pack out of our way ... and as I showed earlier, we win all tie-breakers with the Bears in most scenarios (barring a collapse by us and win out by the Bears).
    If we go 2-2 down the stretch the Bears HAVE to go 4-0 to pass us because we will own the common games tie-breaker with a win over Atlanta. Even if we lose to Atlanta (which is possible of course) the Bears would have to make up a lot of ground to get the conference tie-breaker with us.

    If there is more than one game left in the season, I don't bother trying to figure out the tie-breakers. There isn't enough asprin in the world.....

    Re: Tie Breaker

    all good points and yes were in the drivers seat, we control our own destiny, well the vikings football team does anyways, but look at the packers next opponents

    houston at home. id say a win
    at jacksonville. wow are they bad, another W
    at chicago. this will be a very important game for all three teams involved i think its going to be a dogfight like it always is, but im not sure whos worse right now the bears or packers, theyre both bunk.
    detroit at home. most likely a win.

    4-0 is very possible down the stretch for the puckers. with that said, if we go 2-2 and the puckers go 4-0 they win the division with a better division record having swept the bears.

    2-2 is possible for the vikes, 3-1 would be better, and i think we can pull off a 3-1, even with the giants at full strength we have a better than decent shot at beating them, our defense matches up very well with their offense.

    Re: Tie Breaker

    OK tie-breaker experts.
    What's the scenario if Minnesota, Chicago, and Green Bay all go 9-7?
    Suppose we beat Detroit and Atlanta and lose at Arizona and to New York.
    If these suspensions stick it will be very tough for us to win 3 or 4 of the next 4.
    Green Bay could very well sweep their last 4.
    The Packers at Bears might tell the story....

    Welllll ... if we all end up 9-7 ... Green Bay wins the division. To finish 9-7 they have to win out which would give them a 5-1 division record and put them ahead of us and Chicago.
