Dude.  this is the 4th 6th seed thread.  Use the search function 

 

Why does this bother you or anyone else?

look at all the idiotic threads started by the same people. 

 

Watching last nights game they had Baltimore as the sixth seed and that was ESPN. Projection?

There are three games left. On day one of the season 32 teams were tied for first. These type of analysis only matter when there is finality to it. For example, if a win or loss (or some combination of wins or losses) mathematically puts you in or out of the post season. You might as well put any analysis at this time in your hope chest and write a wishful entry in your diary imagining what the playoffs are like.

And if the Pats beat us that bad & the Fins whooped the Pats what exactly does that mean for the Bills play off chances ??

 

How many wins will the Bills get out of the last 3 games ? 

 

I'm thinking 1 maybe ... home games or not !!

I believe we are the 8th.  

We aren't ahead of the Chargers who beat us and TN has a better record that us.  Baltimore has tie breakers.

Technically, we are the 6th, but in reality, you would be correct.  The tie breaker that Baltimore would have us on is common opponents, which apparently doesn't kick in until after there are 4 common opponents.  Currently, there are only 3.  When we play the Dolphins, the tie breaker will kick in and place the Ravens over us (assuming we remain tied)

This is before common opponents kick in as Seregil commented above.  If the season ended today, we would be behind TN, LA and I think BAL.

By that logic, the Chiefs whipped the Pats and the Bills beat the Chiefs, so that must mean the Bills are better than the Pats?

The Pats loss was the first game of the season & the Bills beating the Cheif's was after the Cheif's fell back to earth .

 

So ill stick with my thoughts of how the teams are playing now instead of 3 months ago . Just sayin !!

Bills have a better conference record then LA so wouldn't they be ahead regardless of losing to them?

 

LA 4-5

Bills 5-4

I think head to head is ahead of conference record for tie breakers.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Sports Illustrated has the Bills 8th currently because they applied everything.

Wouldn't it be better for the Chargers to keep winning and take that division? LA has us on tiebreakers. KC does not.

I think the current three-way tie actually places us in sixth, technically. It won't finish this way as teams accrue more common opponents and conference records change, but for now: Bills in sixth.

Wait why do we need KC to beat the Chargers?  If the Chargers win the division, and we're competing against KC for the WC isn't that what we want?

Perhaps through lack of use, playoff tiebreakers are opaque to me

That's how I feel too but I don't know all tie breaker scenarios.

If both us and KC finish 9-7, we beat them, we would get in I think.  Chargers take the division.

Yeah, it has been known for a little while that we'd pretty much like the Chargers to run the table.

Are you sure?  Because in one of the other 612 threads about this, there was a link that said we were the 8th seed.

Head to head goes out the window when there are 3 or more-way ties.

I agree with you the Bills have a tendency to choke when it comes down to big games. I see the Bills finishing at 7-9 as usual.  :bag:
