We actually do decent on the road tho .. Aside from the games when Stafford wasnt 100% .. I like our chances on the road better , being that we are a young team , a road playoff game helps you focus more than being @ home , imo ...

That may be, but with a young team on the road, crowd against you, may be tough.

It all depends on home field, which they have locked up, right?


nope N.O. only has 3 losses. GB needs one more win to lock up homer field.


Actually the Packers only have to worry about the 49ers as far as losing the #1 seed. The Saints have three conference losses and the most the Packers can end up with is two.

As far as the Lions go they just need to win one and they are in. If not they need a loss from the Seahawks, Cards, and Bears. They hold an advantage over either the Cowboys or Giants if they all have a 9-7 record so they are nonfactors. Unfortunately if the Bears, Cards or Seahawks (if both win this week one of them will end up 9-7) the Lions will lose a tie breaker to all of them. The Falcons are in a head of Detroit even if they lose their next two because of the win back in October over the Lions. If the Bears win out they would have a better division record and the winner of the Cards vs. Seahawks game if one or both win this week would have a better conference record.

If they do get in I'm hoping the Giants win the East and the Lions get the #5 seed. That will increase my odds of going to watch them.

if the niners and packers tie with 3 losses the 49ers get the tiebreaker. the saints cant get homefield throughout bc they lost to the packers already and would lose a 3 way tiebreaker as well.

lions would love to have the 5 seed bc that would mean playing the cowboys or giants, rather than the saints or 49ers in rd 1. the only chance at a home playoff game would be in the nfc championship game if we end up as the no 5 seed and the no 6 seed also ends up in that game. the superbowl however being in indianapolis potentially could be a pseudo home game for the lions but lets lockup the wild card first.

How do the 49ers win tiebreaker?

Quote:
The San Francisco 49ers remain in the running to claim NFC home-field advantage throughout the playoffs after their victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday night.

The 49ers (11-3) would have to win their final two games and the Green Bay Packers would have to lose their final two games. In that case, the 49ers and Packers would finish with 13-3 records, but the 49ers would win the tiebreaker based on a better record against common opponents.


The Packers need one victory or tie, or a 49ers loss or tie, to capture the No. 1 seed in the NFC and be assured of playing at Lambeau Field in all playoff games leading up to the Super Bowl.


New Orleans could also finish 13-3 but would lose a tiebreaker with the Packers, who beat the Saints in the first week of the season.


The Packers, 49ers and Saints have clinched playoff berths and if the three teams finish tied with 13-3 records, the 49ers and Packers would claim the top two seeds and first-round playoff byes because of better conference records.


Eight other teams remain in the running for the three remaining NFC playoff berths, including the 6-8 Philadelphia Eagles, who still have a chance to win the NFC East.
