So 6-4 at the moment, do we make the playoffs?

I'm still thinking we finish 10-6 and go in as a wildcard.

Brutal looking run in, think tonight's game is a must win if you're going to have a shot...

Agree with you about tonight, if we don't win tonight then 8-8 is probably the best we can hope for.

Must win game was won and thanks to the Rams we're now lurking in the Saints rear view mirror. Having the head to head against both Seattle and Detroit could also prove useful.

Beat the Vikings this week and I think we control our own destiny. I think the Saints are wobbling and haven't yet beaten a team with a winning record (Vikings, Pats and Rams). Panthers aren't that impressive, may have peaked too early and we should have beaten them in Charlotte.

Given the competitive nature of the division and our remaining games I can see us being on TV every week from now until the end of the year.

Wk 13 v Vikings (6pm game on Sky)
Wk 14 v Saints (Thursday Night Football)
Wk 15 @ Tampa Bay (Monday Night Football)
Wk 16 @ Saints (6pm game)
Wk 17 v Panthers (6pm game - could be flexed)

Agreed.

I'm not concerned about Detroit, more Seattle, even with their problems as it pertains to playoff seedings. Baltimore might just knock Detroit out of contention on sunday, and Rodgers if he plays will finish them off in week 17.

I can't believe we lost that, the defense seemed to have trouble with the run of the Vikings. lets hope we can will all the division match-ups coming

Gutting really, I thought we would be more competitive than that.

Well we're still alive with 2 weeks to go. However if we're going to anything more the rest of the way we need to stop playing to the level of our opponents - we should have smashed the Bucs (although some of the ref calls didn't help).

And yet win the last two and we take the division and get a home playoff game!

If you look at the playoffs last year we're currently the only NFC team in a playoff position who also made it last year!

i just want to see us make it back into the playoffs winning both games would be amazing to top the division, it always makes me nervous when we get to the forth quarter and is one score in it we have been lucky to often

So here we are. After fluffing our lines yet again (also a special mention for The Pete Morelli Show) it's down to another final game at home against Carolina.

Flexed to 21:25 kick off, I see more than shades of the 2014 embarrassment.

Glad I'm out, because watching that live might end up in a trip to the hospital from banging my head against the wall too many times.
