    Can you guys answer a question for me? I come here because you're all knowledgeable and figured you'd have an answer. If its in the wrong forum, a mod can move. :)

    If the Chargers, Ravens, and Colts all win out... SD obviously is the #1. Who gets the 2 seed?

    Two Clubs
    1. Head-to-head, if applicable. N/A
    2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference. Tied at 12-2
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four. Titans, Broncos, Bills, Bengals. We played Titans twice and they played Bengals twice so I don't think they count. Broncos and Bills don't meet the minimum. Colts would be 4-1 vs common opponents and the Ravens will be 3-2.
    4. Strength of victory.
    5. Strength of schedule.

    The rules go on to say:

    2. In comparing division and conference records or records against common opponents among tied teams, the best won-lost-tied percentage is the deciding factor since teams may have played an unequal number of games

    I'm pretty sure there was some exception to that common game rule because of Baltimore playing Cincy twice and Indy only playing them once. Didn't they have to skip that tiebreaker a few years back and went to the strength of victory?

    EDIT: NFL says rules stand. No need for reply. Thank you, though.

    Doesn't seem fair to Baltimore...
