Not exactly MN, it all hinges on the Saints. If the Saints beat Atlanta, and both the Niners and Eagles lose, we will have a 3-way tie at 9-8. Because we only have the head to head advantage over Philly but not N’Orleans, they will use conference record to spit out the #6 seed. In this scenario that would be Philly (7-5) over us and the Saints (both 6-6). If NO had Philly beat in conference record, then our head to head would come into factor for round 2. But since Philly would get #6, it would come down to record vs. Common opponents between us and the Saints. They have that advantage over us.

Let’s hope we can just continue our domination of the Lambs for a 6th straight and take all the tiebreakers out of it.
