    This is going to be a great stretch ... I can't believe the shape of the NFC South and how much it's similar to the real NFL this year LOL.

    Quite a few teams are in the drivers seat with win and you're in scenarios. AFC West could get very interesting over the next 3 games.

    Chiefs and Titans are coming on strong after slow starts.

    Believe the Bills are eliminated with one more loss although I pplay both the Bengals and Steelers stoll so I could help myself immensely.

    The NFC South is interesting. Hoping Cgreen214 and his Bucs can make a push and get into ythe playoffs

    Yeah one loss or if both the Steelers and Raiders win one more game.

    Pittsburgh is the real wildcard here, if they win out they would own every tiebreaker over any AFC Team because they would finish 12-0 against the AFC.

    Lol technically yes. You have to win out and New Orleans lose out. Also TB can't win more than once, but they have a really tough 3 game stretch.

    *correction* Bengals will hold tiebreaker over Broncos due to common opponents record. Broncos will lose every Tiebreaker to any AFC division champ if the Jets beat the Jaguars.

    Bears is probably gonna be a sim. So I could lose out on the #1 seed in the NFC. Should be an interesting last 3 weeks!

    Back to back close losses for St Louis, leading both games late...... Those almost certainly remove me from playoff picture but if they had gone the other way I'd be in the drivers seat for a wildcard. Damn low confidence players, madden BS (onside kick vs Arizona, smh) and, of course, critical mistakes by my ever older and slower reflexes.....

    I am confident enough to officially call the AFC seeding. It would mean Madden's tiebreakers are beyond broken again if the Broncos get the 2 seed above the Bengals as the Bengals own the tiebreaker in almost every category. Here are the details:

    Head to Head: Not applicable

    Conference Record: Both Teams tie at 8-4

    Common Games: Bengals 5-1, Broncos 4-2
    as unfair as it may be, the Broncos had to play the Chiefs 2x. Each team lost to the Texans.

    This is where the tiebreaker should stop, but going a couple steps further would show a clear advantage for the Bengals.

    Strength of Victory: Broncos only had ONE win against a team with a winning record Chiefs (10-6). Bengals beat the Eagles (13-3) as their signature win.

    Strength of Schedule: Bengals have the edge here as well.

    Sooo if Madden indeed keeps status quo with the Broncos ahead of the Bengals like on the standing page, then threads like this one are pretty much pointless, even though it was fun to keep you guys updated

    Even if it's not 100% accurate this has been one of my favorite threads of the year. It's nice to know what games mean what and who sits where.

    Appreciate you doing this publik drunk

    Madden seeding is fixed this year! Even though daddy leagues has it all wrong I believe madden will get it right. The common opponent tie breaker will favor bengals as you said. I had a similar tie beaker season one to get in the playoffs and it was right. Good content man!
