Atlanta, Giants, Dallas Watch dog thread

These are the teams that stand between us an a wild card birth. We need Atl to lose one of the last 3, hopefully this week against the Jets. Thats the only team that really scares me.

We need something like this to play out. And it could very easily unfold like this.

49ers with 9-7 clinch #6 seed
@Phi--W
Det--W
StL--W

Dal with 9-7
@NO--L
@Was--W
Phi--L

NYG with 9-7
@Was--W
Car--W
@Min--L

Atl with 8-8
@NYJ--L
Buf--W
@TB--W

If this happens we win due to tie breakers. So this is the watch dog thread!

I'm not getting my hopes up for any of this
To get the #6 spot, we need to:

Win out
Dallas lose 2 games
Atlanta lose 1 game
New York Giants lose 1 game

To win the division, we need to:

Win out
Arizona lose 2 games

OR

Win 2 games
Arizona lose out

I think I saw that we have a 16% chance to make the playoffs. I think that's pretty good considering where we're at.
Our last game is @STL by the way.

well beating the Eagles will definitely improve our chances. But other than that, I think it's very possible for the Giants and Falcons to lose another game.

If we beat Philly on Sunday, then I'll jump on this hope train.

The most important phrase so far in this thread is "win out." Failing to do so ends our season, which probably happened in Seattle anyways. But as was said, if we win against Philly, I will jump on this wagon.

If Dallas loses 2 out of 3 and the 49ers win 2 out of 3 then we'll have them because of the Conference record tie breaker.


However, we need the Giants and the Falcons to start losing as well


But it appears that Atlanta has the easiest last 3 games, and they have a head to head tie breaker against us.

We have the same conference record as the Giants, and better record than Atlanta.


So it looks like if we keep wining, then we need Atlanta to really start losing.

I think it's very possible that those other teams lose the games needed, but I doubt we can win out the rest of the way.

Philly at home is the hardest part of this entire path.
