    dumb question of the week

    here is the play off race for the Rams.

    NFC West

    The Seahawks have clinched a playoff berth

    Seattle can clinch division title with:
    1) Seahawks win or tie
    OR
    2) Rams loss or tie.

    The Rams can clinch division with:
    1) St. Louis win and Seahawks loss.

    The Rams can clinch playoff berth with:
    1) Rams win and Vikings loss
    OR
    2) Rams win and Saints/Panthers game ends in tie.

    Question..... what happens if the Rams win and either the Saints or Panthers win?

    Rams lose the tiebreaker with either the Panthers or the Saints on the head-to-head matchup if either ends up 8-8. That's why they'd have to tie, both ending with a 7-8-1 record, for the Rams to beat them out for the wild card.

    Re: dumb question of the week

    So, bottom line is


    1) The Rams MUST win

    AND

    2) the Seahawks to loose (if this happens, everything else is mute)

    3) or if the Seahawks win, the Vikings MUST loose.


    Simple enough then

    Yeah, that's pretty much it. The likelihood of a tie is too remote to be considered viable.

    Question. How many OT periods do they play before a game is called a tie in the regular season?
