|Notes and assumptions:|
NFC Division Tiebreakers after Week 16:
- No possibility of further tie games except GB-DET.
- Tiebreaker winners are as they would be if the teams were tied at the end of the season, NOT as if the season ended right now.
- Tiebreakers that don't affect playoff berths or seeding are ignored.
- Division ties are broken first. (Example: If ARI, SEA, and DET all
finish 12-4, break the ARI-SEA tie first. Then apply the tiebreaker
between DET and the ARI-SEA winner.)
- If three or more teams are tied, apply that tiebreaker, not the two-team tiebreaker.
- Strength of victory is the combined winning percentage (essentially, the number of wins) of the teams a team has beaten. It has nothing to do with point totals.
- Locked berths: none.
- Clinched divisions: DAL.
- Clinched berths: ARI, DET, GB, SEA.
- Eliminated: WAS, NYG, CHI, MIN, TB, STL, SF, NO, PHI.
- Eliminated from wild card: CAR, ATL.
