        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

          NFL Tiebreaking Procedures
          by ramsanddodgers

          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.

          Tiebreaker scenarios for the Rams
          by RamWraith
          12/25/2006

          Philadelphia, at 8-6 before today's game against Dallas, has a leg up on one of the two NFC wild-card spots. The Rams are among five teams in the NFC at 7-8 with Atlanta, Carolina, Green Bay and the New York Giants. Which one of the five will earn a wild-card playoff berth? Deciphering the Dead Scrolls might be easier than figuring out the tiebreakers.

          If teams finish with identical records, the first tiebreaker for a playoff spot is head-to-head results. The Rams would lose a tiebreaker with Carolina, having lost to the Panthers on Nov. 19. But they would win a tiebreaker with Green Bay, having beaten the Packers 23-20 on Oct. 8.

          But the head-to-head scenario won't be applicable in any scenario involving the Rams if more than two teams finish with identical records. In that case, the next tiebreaker is conference record. At 8-8, the Rams, Atlanta, Carolina would all finish 6-6 in conference games. But the Giants and Green Bay would finish 7-5 in conference.

          The next tiebreaker after conference record is common opponents.

          Tiebreakers Vs Packers
          by RamDez
          HERE IS THE ACTUAL TIE BREAKING PROCEDURE:

          1. Head to Head
          2. Conference %
          3. Common games %
          4. Net Conference game points scored
          5. Scoring all games
          6. Strength of schedule
          7. Net Touchdowns
          8. Coin Toss

          If the Packers win out and the Rams lose to The Saints , Falcons or
          Carolina, they would tie the first three tiebreakers.
          If the Rams lose only to the Saints, the least improbable loss on the
          schedule, the Rams common opponent record would be 6-1, while the Packers
          would be 5-2, so the Rams would win based on that tiebreaker.

          NHL Playoff Question
          by UtterBlitz
          Hey guys, I have been watching the Capitals this year but I don't know a lot about hockey. They are in the playoffs right now and I was wondering how it works.

          They played the Flyers last night and won 5 to 4 and looking at the schedule it appears that they are going to play them 6 more times. I assume that all of the teams that are playing each other play 7 times and the one who wins the most games continues on? I would assume then that there is a second round of the playoffs?

          Can someone please explain the playoffs to me? How many rounds are there? How long does this go on for?

          Thanks.
