The tiebreaker just before the conference record is record between common games.
Common Games outside of division:
Tampa Bay (both won)
Baltimore (DAL lost, WAS won)
Carolina (DAL won, WAS lost)
Atlanta (both lost)
Cleveland (both won)
Cincinatti (DAL won, WAS lost)
Pittsburgh (DAL won, WAS lost)
New Orleans (DAL lost, WAS won)
That would make Dal 5-3 and WAS 4-4.
Thus DAL goes through.
Let's hope it happens.
so basically the Saints game meant NOTHING...it was going to come down to the Wash game regardless
