    nfc playoff seeding

    Does anyone know the story between atlanta and the lions regarding tie breakers?

    If Atlanta loses tonight do the Lions take the 5 seed regardless of what happens next week?

    nope.
    tie-breakers favor ATL.
    Detroit must finish with a better record to gain the 5 seed.
    which ain't likely, ATL will not lose to TB next week, and i doubt the Lions will beat the Pack either.
    we are gonna get ATL here for round 1.

    The Falcons will probably lose tonight, so here's how it goes next week.

    For Detroit to get the 5th seed: win OR Falcons loss
    For Atlanta to get the 5th seed: win AND Lions loss

    i think Rogers and company will play until the pack is comfortably ahead , then start sitting players.

    that giants pats game back in '07 changed all that sit my starters and don't play hard stuff.

    plus Detroit would drop a spot in the draft by moving up to 5 seed. they would be better off to lay down and keep the 6 seed AND go to a dome game , ATL or NO for the first round.why play us in the cold ?
    that would be a real thinking man's move.
