    ooohhh i like being an expert...

    Right now...

    Baltimore 9-6
    Seattle 9-7

    if Baltimore loses they're both 9-7...They both are 8-4 in the AFC...

    Here are the official rules...
    1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs). They didn't play
    2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division. They're in different divisions
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.They're both 8-4
    4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, if applicable. I think this is it. They both played Cleveland, Jacksonville, and Denver with Seattle going 3-1 and Baltimore 3-2, but these teams are in there respective divisions so i'm not sure the intricacies of this section of the rule
    5. Best net points in division games.
    6. Best net points in all games.
    7. Strength of schedule.
    8. Best net touchdowns in all games.
    9. Coin toss.

    I hope this helps...

        you're welcome, not a problem, actually served informational to me to go on the search. It's all moot now that the Ravens are in anyway.

          NFL Tiebreaking Procedures
          by ramsanddodgers
          HTML Code:
          NFL Tiebreaking Procedures 
          (March 20, 2002) -- With the NFL realigning into eight four-team divisions to accommodate the arrival of the Houston Texans, the league adopted new tiebreaking rules. 
          
          
          Common opponents will now be the third tiebreaker within a division after head-to-head games and division record because each of the four teams will have 14 common games in the 16-game schedule. The owners also moved the strength-of-victory tiebreaker ahead of the strength-of-schedule tiebreaker. 
          
          The six postseason participants from each conference will now be seeded as follows:
          1. The division champion with the best record.
          2. The division champion with the second-best record.
          3. The division champion with the third-best record.
          4. The division champion with the fourth-best record.
          5. The Wild Card club with the best record.
          6. The Wild Card club with the second-best record.
          
          The following procedures will be used to break standings ties for postseason playoffs and to determine regular-season schedules. 
          NOTE: Tie games count as one-half win and one-half loss for both clubs. 
          
          TO BREAK A TIE WITHIN A DIVISION
          If, at the end of the regular season, two or more clubs in the same division finish with identical won-lost-tied percentages, the following steps will be taken until a champion is determined. 
          
          Two Clubs
          1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
          2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
          3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
          4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
          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 common games.
          10. Best net points in all games.
          11. Best net touchdowns in all games. 
          
          Three or More Clubs
          (Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated during any step, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of the two-club format).
          1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games among the clubs).
          2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
          3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
          4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
          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 common games.
          10. Best net points in all games.
          11. Best net touchdowns in all games.

          Questions on the standings
          by RamsFanSam
          Since Seattle now holds the same record as the Rams, 4-2, exactly where do we sit in the standings?

          The reason I ask is because Dallas, 3-2, but 1-1 divisional, is listed as # 2 in the NFC East, ahead of the Giants, also 3-2, but undefeated in their division.

          The only thing I see giving the cowboys a lead is the PF/PA standings.

          If that is the determination, the Rams lead the squawks in the PA/PF battle.

          Can someone with the proper knowledge explain this where all can understand?

          Rams Opponents Through 2009
          by RamWraith
          Not sure if you all knew this.


          Here you go:


          Monday, January 17, 2005
          The NFL’s new scheduling format includes the following elements:
          • There will be an increased common-opponent emphasis with every team in a division playing against 14 common opponents.
          • All teams will play each other on a regular basis, home and away, for a more consistent presentation of attractive games, eliminating the many schedule aberrations of the past.
          • Teams are guaranteed to play all non-division opponents in their conference at least once every three years, and at home at least once every six years.
          • Every AFC team will play every NFC team once every four years, and at home once every eight years.
          • A team’s record from the previous year will have less of a bearing on its schedule, with only two (rather than four) opponents being based on the previous year’s standing. Thus, the so-called “easy” fifth-place schedules are eliminated.
          • The division in which a team resides will be less of a factor in a team’s won-loss record with 10 of 16 games each year being against non-division teams.

          Under the new scheduling formula, every team within a division will play 16 games as follows:
          • Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).
          • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games).
          • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games).
          • Two intraconference games based on the prior year's standings (2 games). These games will match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference will be matched in the same way each year.

          Since when in any schedule does a team...
          by bruce4life
          play 3 consecutive home games? Kind of crazy to see that on our sched. Plus it hurts that the home games we do have are against tough opponents this season in my opinion. The league never gives the Rams a break do they? What do you guys think the Rams go the first 8 games given 5 of the first 8 are on the road? It's like the league wants the Rams to be out of contention by week 8 or something.

          Adam Schein: "Los Angeles Is An Offensive Juggernaut", "The Rams Are Legit"
          by r8rh8rmike
          From his "Fact or Fiction" NFL.com column today:

          The Seattle Seahawks are NFC West favorites.


          Straight fiction. I might've been open to the idea if Seattle had won Sunday ... but Kirk Cousins made the impossible possible in the Pacific Northwest, leading the Redskins to a last-minute win in front of the stunned 12s.

          Seattle (5-3) is vulnerable. The defense got carved up by Deshaun Watson in Week 8 and then allowed Cousins to dominate in crunch time, with a pair of inexcusable bombs on the "Legion of Boom." And while I loved the Duane Brown deal, the offensive line remains weak and the run game's unreliable. Blair Walsh missed a few more kicks as you were reading this blurb.

          And here's the other problem for Seattle: The upstart Rams (6-2) are legit. Yes, the Giants are a mess, but 51-17 is 51-17. Sean McVay and his all-star coaching staff have revitalized football in L.A. Jared Goff was superb against the Giants, Todd Gurley continues to provide balance, and Andrew Whitworth has changed everything on the line. Los Angeles is an offensive juggernaut. Meanwhile, Aaron Donald and the defense have really come on in recent weeks. Since Week 6, the Rams are giving up just 11.3 points per game.

          Don't misinterpret: I still think Seattle makes the playoffs -- though Thursday night's game in Arizona this week is suddenly no cupcake. I think Seattle's a wild-card team. L.A.'s been better all year. And that's why I picked the Rams to win the division in our midseason predictions last week. I love this Rams team.
