    Question for Ram fans

    Not trying to knock you, so leave the angst at the door. I'm just curious here.

    How did the Rams get in as a wild card over the Saints? Both teams were 8-8. But the Saints beat the Rams head to head. Isn't that the first tie-breaker. I thought that conference record (which the Rams had the better by one game) was the second tie-breaker if head to head didn't apply. Thanks for clearing this up for me.

    I believe the Rams were in a three-way tie with the Saints and the Vikings, and the first test in a three-way tie is conference record. The Rams had a better conference record than the Saints and Vikings, so they secured a wild card spot. Then, normal head to head tie-breaking measures were used between the Vikings and Saints, at which point head to head comes into play.

    Seatown,
    Dude, if you're going to use words, use them properly. There ain't no angst here w/r to a nice Hawk's fan posting an inquiry.

    Perhaps you should have used one of the following terms: "hostility, aggressiveness, or defensiveness."

    I forgot about the three way tie-breaker. That's what got the Hawks in last year. Touche.
