  • Division Leaders Wanna Stay Leading

    Pardon me if this has been discussed elsewhere.

    Suppose Denver loses in KC two weeks from now, what will it take to win the division? What tiebreaker scenarios are we looking at? We would have split the season series and the possibility of dual 14-2 records is quite strong.

    Could be the difference between a 1-seed and a 5-seed.

    Chiefs have a tough schedule at the back end while we get easier after the @ Chiefs game.

    Beat AFC teams and division foes to keep as #1 when discussing possible tie-breakers.

        Here are the "within the division" tiebreakers. In short, if we split, it would go division record, then common games, then conference games, and so on.

        1.Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
        2.Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
        3.Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
        4.Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
        5.Strength of victory.
        6.Strength of schedule.
        7.Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
        8.Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
        9.Best net points in common games.
        10.Best net points in all games.
        11.Best net touchdowns in all games.
        12.Coin toss

          Not worried about it yet at all. Chiefs are going to lose another 3 games this yr easy.

            I don't even need to look at the schedule, Cheifs will finish about 12-4

              If we win out with the exception of KC in 2 weeks the following are possible:

              1) KC wins out: they win division by record.

              2)KC loses only to wash: They win division on conference record.

              3) KC loses only to indy: strength of victory will decide. Probs us, as we will have beaten Baltimore and NE, whom will presumably have better records than Cleveland and buffalo, which would be the only difference in the records of the victories the 2 teams had.

              4) KC loses only any other game besides Indi and wash, but wins out the others (i.e beating every other opponent but 1 of the 3 division games left): we win on division record.

                With 6 games left, each one counts big time, with 2 teams at 9-1 in the same division. IMO, if we lost to NE, we would HAVE to win at Arrowhead.

                  We can lose to NE and KC and win the div IF KC loses any one of the 3 divisional games left and any 1 other opponent. We win that one on Div record.

                    6 games is an eternity. Win next week against the Pats.... then the game after that, and then the next game.

                    The only game the Broncos can control against KC is in two weeks. Other than that just take care of your own business.

                      Wouldnt we both be 5-1 in the division then?

                        Yup. But they'd be 15-1 and we'd be 14-2.

                          We would have at least 2 losses and KC would be 15-1.

                          Not going to happen, but They would take the division.

                              Wait... I dont think strength of victory has anything to do with who we play, more so just how much we tend to win by. Currently we are winning that battle big time. However, I agree that kc will lose at least 3 more. Honeymoon is over. No way we lose more than 2 from here on out.
