    I am tryng to find out what the heck that is???
    I know it has to do with the teams one is victorious over..and I kind of guess it is a pct of those teams wins and losses ALL combined...but if a team has rwo victories over a certain team )in teh division) is that record counted ONCE or twice?? Just confused and amazed that a NY GB thing may come down to that...

    Aggregate win percentage of all the teams your team defeated.

    Strength of schedule is the aggregate win percentage of all the teams on the schedule, not just the teams you beat.

    Strength of victory is total number of victories for all the team you beat. If you beat a team twice, then they count twice. The NFC is very unlikely to come down to that. If the Giants win, almost every game in the league must turn out right for GB to get the spot.

    Actiually according to the NFL site itself..it lists strength of Victory as the tiebreaker between NY and GB if both win. THAt is more probable than many scenarios..although if Chicago makes any effort they should make Favre's last game a nightmare.
