Saints Playoff Scenarios

Again, I'm sure most of you are aware of the situation but in case you aren't, here is the playoff situation for the Saints, courtesy of the NFL:

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

New Orleans clinches homefield advantage throughout NFC playoffs with:

IF MINNESOTA BEATS CHICAGO

   1) NO win or tie OR

   2) MIN loss or tie

IF CHICAGO BEATS MINNESOTA

  • New Orleans clinches homefield advantage.
  • To sum it up, if the Vikings lose tonight the NFC Championship game goes through New Orleans (should the Saints make it). If the Vikings win, the Saints must win/tie against Carolina to clinch home field advantage throughout. 

    Since so much of this hinges on the Vikings, there will be an open thread for the Vikings/Bears game tonight right here on Da Chronic for all of those who will be watching and want to talk about the game.
