I don't know? That's a good question? Suppose we beat Seattle at home and each win out for 14 - 2. What then?
Tiebreaker rules state that after head to head, division record, common games record, and conference record, the next would be strength of victory. (combined W/L/T% of teams defeated).
So in the scenario of us beating SEA and both finishing 14-2, it would come down to the better record of the teams we beat. So basically Vikings and Giants for SEA, and Packers and Redskins for the 49ers, which are our only uncommon opponents this year. Considering the Packers and Redskins will probably end up with a better combined record than the Giants and Vikings, we will probably gain that tiebreaker. (Giants/Vikings are 2-11 so far, Packers/Redskins are 6-6).
lol so provided we win out, it looks good for us.
