Yes. Assuming they are tied for the division lead at the end of the season, and the loser doesn’t qualify for a wildcard. And they split the season series with the other team. And they have the same division record. And they have the same winning percentage in common games throughout the year. And they have the same winning percentage in conference. And their strength of victory is identical. And their strength of schedule is also identical. And their combined ranking among the conference is the same when ranked on points scored and points allowed. And when that same combined ranking is also equal among all NFL teams. And when they have the same exact amount of net points scored in common games. And, of course, they have the same exact amount of net points for the entire season in all games. And, obviously, they have the exact same amount of net touchdowns scored in all games for the entire season.
So, as you’re enjoying Thanksgiving football---remember that if all of that happens, your team and its playoff lives could be determined by the simple flip of a coin. And you thought the NFL was thorough.
(Why do I get the feeling that a lot more time was spent on the NFL tiebreaker process than anything the government has done in the past century or so?)
