    Here's a little bit of explanation for each game:

    GB @ DET
    - GB (Thu) - Since we swept both teams, this game does not affect our strength of schedule at all.
    However, NO beat the Lions in week 1, and they don't play the Pack.

    JAC @ SF - SF - We beat SF
    SEA @ STL - SEA - Both teams have played and beaten TB.
    However, we play Seattle, and the Saints don't.
    CHI @ MIN - MIN - Obviously
    ARI @ TEN - ARI - We play Arizona in week 13
    OAK @ DAL - OAK - The Saints play Dallas in week 15
    PIT @ BAL - BAL (Sun night) - We beat Baltimore, but not Pittsburgh.

    NE @ NO - NE (mon) - Another obvious one
    Eh ... fuck that ... I am definitely pulling for the Lions.

    And as a general rule ... I NEVER pull for an NFC team against an AFC team ... so go Titans! Besides ... we would want to keep Arizona as far away as possible, that way IF they do beat us ... we will still get a higher seed than them.

    Obviously we want Baltimore to win ... everyone hates the Steelers right?

    The strength of schedule tie-breaker is nice to think about and all ... but I am still not going to pull for the Packers EVER.
    If the Lions winning means the Vikings getting a #2 instead of the #1 seed than I would definitely want the Packers to win.
    It doesn't mean that ... it is week 12. It simply means the Lions are 3-8 and the Packers are 7-4.
    If we finish the season with the same record as NO, which is extremely possible than it would play a role in determining home field advantage.
    Notice I said "If" in my original post.

    Nice work, Paul.
    I'll really start paying attention to those teams when it comes down to week 15 or so.
    That is when it all starts to take shape a lot better and be worth really looking at.

    Hell ... by then we could be 12-1 and the Saints could be 11-2 and all that matters is winning games anyways.
    Yeah..
    That's when I start paying a lot more attention, especially since we've pretty much locked down a first round bye, much less a playoff spot.

    The Vikings won't need any help this year.

    Amen

    Wrong, we need the Saints to start losing so we have homefield advantage.

    yep, hopefully Dallas gets out of their little funk.
    14-2 is all we need from the Saints.

    Good luck with that... remember it's December and Romo.

    Also remember that common games and strength of VICTORY come into play before strength of schedule.

    Though I think common games looks like it could definitely be a wash in the end.
    I was actually referring to strength of Victory, not strength of schedule.
    Sorry for the typo.
    The teams I have listed are helping out the Vikes in strength of victory.

    Wrong.

    It would be nice or convenient to have the Saints lose. But this Vikings team will beat them anywhere they play them.

    Looking for help is like chasing your tail.

    Wrong...we need the Saints to lose so that we can all tailgate and watch this game live at the Metrodome!
    Wish our boys off to the Super Bowl in person!
