n doing playoff tiebreaking procedure..


Recommended Posts

one step that always plays a big factor in determining the winning is record in common games.

Now the rule says the team with the better record in common games among the two teams wins the tie breaker. BUT a minimum of 4 games is required.

So lets take two teams, A and B, and they have identical records and both are division winners.

TB1) Head to headisnt applicable for their records against one another is 0-0

TB2) Their conference records are identical

TB3) record in common games


Team A plays teams C once, D once and E twice

Team B plays teams C twice, D once and E once.

Does this apply for the 4 game minimum?

To make it a little more clear...

The Eagles play St Louis once, Carolina once and the New York Giants twice

The Falcons play St Louis once, Carolina twice and the New York Giants once.

Does this apply for the 4 game minimum for the tiebreaker?

Two Clubs

Head-to-head, if applicable.

Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.

Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.

Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.

Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.

Thats the TB for 2 teams in a WildCard or Divisional-Winner tie...
