Division Champ Tie Breaker


We need to win this game to keep the tiebreaker for the end of the season.  Here's how it plays out: 

1. If we don't win (and we still manage a tie), it would come to division games, which I'm assuming we'll both win all our other division games or if we lost one, they'd lose one thus evening it out so it would fall to the next tie breaker.

1. At this point, it will come down to wins between common teams played. So far, We've lost to the same teams and won against the same teams.  The difference is the Chargers have beaten the Eagles and the Giants and have yet to play the Browns, Cowboys, Bengals and Redskins.  We've beaten the Bengals, Browns, Cowboys, lost to the Redskins, and have yet to play the Eagles and the Giants.  In this scenario we'd have to rely on the Chargers loosing to one of those teams, preferably an AFC team (this point right here is why we need to win this game in order to control our own destiny, otherwise, it's up to the Chargers to win or lose). 

2. Still a tie?  Here's where the loss to an AFC team I mentioned before would come into play and we'd win the tie breaker, however.  If they manage to win our common AFC games and their one loss to tie things back up came from an NFC team, it would go to conference play which will compare our New England/Indianapolis games vs. their Miami/Tennessee games. We've each won one of those so it will come down to our Indianapolis vs. their Tennessee (I don't like those odds). 

3. If we manage to tie this scenario as well, then it will fall to strength of victory.  I'm not exactly sure what this means.  Can someone fill me in? 

4. The next tie breaker is strength of schedule. I think I can confidently say we'd win this tie breaker because the teams we don't have in common are the Patriots/Colts vs their Titans/Dolphins.

 

This game is a MUST win.

 

GO BRONCOS!!
