    It would go by strength of schedule. And based off that the Colts have had the hardest schedule. Then the Rams then the Vikings... But don't quote me.

    I thought it was this?

    Strength of schedule for the previous season is the first tie-breaker for teams with the same winning percentage. The team with the lowest strength of schedule percentage wins the tiebreaker and picks ahead of all other teams with the same record.

    Both the Vikings and Colts have much easier SOS than us at this point, almost to the extent that it's impossible for us to win (lose?) the SOS tie-breaker. If we end up with the same record as either team they will draft before us.

    Ther Rams are clearly the most inept team of the 3 so they should get the pick.

    At this point the Rams do have the hardest schedule out of the three teams contradicting what I had originally said (note I said don't quote me).
    The wins are as follows from the teams set on the schedule, and are subject to change.

    Indianapolis 120 wins
    Vikings 126 wins
    Rams 129 wins

    All 3 teams have 2 other teams that have been counted into this and if the season continues to go as the way it has add 3 more wins to each of those columns.

    Re: If there is a 3 way tie?

    I put a spreadsheet together to show opponent's winning percentage for our three teams. As of this afternoon's games, here they are.

    RAMS - 0.594093407
    Vikings - 0.56456044
    Colts - 0.541552198

    After today's afternoon games, our SoS went up while the Colts and Vikes went down.

    Re: If there is a 3 way tie?

    There are different ways to present the data, but regarding the Rams and the Vikings, here are their opponents' records as of today (SNF and MNF games for this week not included):

    Rams - 130-90
    Vikings - 126-97

    If you want to keep track at home, here is how to do it. Take the Rams current "score" of -11.

    When any of the following teams wins, add 1. When any of these teams lose, subtract 1.
    GB
    SD
    TB
    KC
    CAR
    OAK
    ATL
    DEN

    Same for the following, except it's doubled (add 2 when they win, etc):
    DET
    CHI

    Conversely, when any of the following teams wins, subtract 1. If they lose, add 1:
    PHI
    NYG
    BAL
    DAL
    ARI
    CLE
    CIN
    PIT

    Same as the above, but doubled (when they win subtract 2, etc):
    SEA
    SF

    Remember Rams are currently -11, not including the game going on now or tomorrow night's game. At the end of the season we need to be in positive territory to draft before MIN. So for example, we want SD to beat BAL because a SD win will add 1 and a BAL loss will add 1, making our differential only -9. A BAL win would sink us to -13. I know it's confusing, hopefully it at least clarifies how far behind we are.

    IND might be mathematically beyond reach, they certainly are for all practical purposes (on SOS, they could still win out and leapfrog us).

    Thanks,just hope we have the 1st or 2nd pick.

    There is a thread that answers all of these questions on the Draft & FA board.
