Vikings fall two spots with tie Zitat · antworten

<P>Vikings fall two spots with tie</P>
<P>Chip Scoggins is a Star Tribune columnist back covering the Vikings for this season after being on the beat from 2008 11.</P>
<P>Mark Craig has covered the NFL for 23 years, and the Vikings since 2003 for the Star Tribune. He is one of 44 Pro Football Hall of Fame selectors.</P>
<P>Every Tuesday morning, we take a look at where the Vikings would pick in the 2014 NFL Draft if the season ended today.</P>
<P>If you were confused about how to react to a Vikings 26 26 tie against the Packers on Sunday, it likely the same feeling you get when looking at how it impacts the NFL Draft order.</P>
<P>Technically, the tie counts as half a win in the standings, so the Vikings win percentage went up. As a result, they behind a few more teams this week.</P>
<P>Last week, the Vikings would picked second if the season ended today (more on tiebreakers in a bit). This week, they jumped up two spots to fourth. Here the current top five (records in parentheses):</P>
<P>So what if the Vikings would lost to the Packers? First let explain the tiebreaker procedure.</P>
<P>The first tiebreaker is strength of schedule where the team with the worst strength of schedule percentage wins the tiebreaker and gets a better pick.</P>
<P>Strength of schedule is based off the win percentage of Tomas Plekanec S Jersey a team opponents, so there two ways to calculate it during the season. One would be to factor in a team entire 16 game schedule, or the other method would be to tally the records of games already played (the method used above). The Texans have a .545 SOS percentage based off the 11 opponents they played, which is the lower than the Jaguars (.579) and Youth Carey Price Jersey the Falcons (.595) and gives Houston the top pick at the moment.</P>
<P>Just like in that math class, there no right or wrong way about it. Both methods will result in the same percentage at the end of the season. This method is just preferred here because it gives us the draft order if the season ended after Week 12.</P>
<P>So if the Vikings would lost to the Packers, they be in a four way tie for the top pick. Because the Packers would win, it also impacts the Vikings SOS percentage, which jumps from .521 to .529. Commenters must follow our Terms of Use.</P>
