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.
Strength of victory.
Strength of schedule.
Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
Best net points in conference games.
Best net points in all games.
Best net touchdowns in all games.
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.
