Wallyhorse Posted October 7, 2020 Share Posted October 7, 2020 With it now likely whoever wins the NFC East has no more than eight wins, it was time to bring this back up: If NBA-style seeding were used (where a wild card with a better record than a division winner would have home field and a division winner is only guaranteed a playoff berth), using last season's final records, this is how seeding would have been:AFC:Bye: #1 Ravens #7 Steelers at #2 Chiefs #6 Titans at #3 Patriots #5 Bills at #4 Texans (Effectively no chance from how last season actually went, Texans would be seeded 4th because if teams have the same record, a division winner would still get preference over a wild card for seeding, but ONLY as is)NFC: Bye: #1 49ers #7 Rams at #2 Packers #6 Eagles at #3 Saints #5 Vikings at #4 Seahawks (Vikings and Seahawks would jump ahead of the Eagles in the seed order with the Eagles falling to the #6 seed). This has worked in the NBA and is more fair. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
