    There has to be more than two teams tied at the end of the season to nullify head-to-head as a potential tie breaker. For example if the Rams and Packers are the only two teams tied at the end of the season, the Rams go in by virtue of the head-to-head tie breaker.

    If the Rams, Packers, and Falcons are tied at the end of the season the head-to-head tie breaker is nullified and the Packers get in by virtue of best National Conference record because they are not in same division, Rams didn't play Falcons, and Falcons didn't play the Packers, therefore case scenario #3 would then apply.

    Here is the rule:

    Three or More Clubs
    (Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of applicable two-club format.)
    1. Apply division tie breaker to eliminate all but the highest ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2. The original seeding within a division upon application of the division tie breaker remains the same for all subsequent applications of the procedure that are necessary to identify the two Wild-Card participants.
    2. Head-to-head sweep. (Applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
    5. Strength of victory.
    6. Strength of schedule.
    7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    9. Best net points in conference games.
    10. Best net points in all games.
    11. Best net touchdowns in all games.
    12. Coin toss
