So who gets in and how?

I think in order for Cowboys to get in, they have to beat BOTH Baltimore and Philly.


Not sure how Philly gets in..... I know they have the tiebreaker over Atlanta

wrong, cowboys have to win both only if atlanta and tampa win out, otherwise they only have to win one of thier two.

tampa and atlant wont both win out, maybe one of them.

philly has to win out

Cowboys control their own destiny. They also hold the tie breaker over the bucs and falcons. They eagles can also get in if they win out and either the falcons or bucs lose a game

It remains more complex than anybody will be willing to tell you.

Yeah honestly I'm confused as **** so I don't even bother with it right now...I'll just see how things look in a couple of weeks.

I think. I'd have to go look at the standings/records right now to make sure. But I think both the cowboys and eagles can get in.

no eagles have wo win out since they tied that one game, unless tampa and atlanta both lose all there games.

Tiebreaks won't really come in to play in any situation involving Philly. They'll either finish above or below.

This would be VERY unlikely as the Cowboys and Eagles still have a game against each other, so at least one of them is picking up a loss. Well I suppose they could always tie...
