Nothing groundbreaking here, but I thought our W-L record was interesting when broken down outside of the Home/Away breakdowns we usually see.
I like to look at our record in 3 ways. First, how did we do in our division...the answer there is so far 1-3 with 2 games left. Makes it really hard to win your division when you start off 0-3
Second, I like to look at NFC games outside our division We have 6 of these games each year, and this year, we are 5-1, beating Dallas, Green Bay, Chicago, Minnesota & Carolina and only losing to Detroit. This speaks wonders because the teams we beat, 3 of them could be in the playoffs and possible future opponents.
Lastly, I like to look at how we do in the AFC. This year, we played the East and went 3-1. We beat the Patriots, Jets and Bills, only losing a close game to Miami.
So, to sum up, we are 8-2 outside our division. This is a number which I REALLY like to see going into the playoffs. This makes San Francisco the only team to have beaten us going into the playoffs this year. This is why I want this win on Sunday sooooooo badly. I want to go into the playoffs having won our last game against all the playoff teams we played this season.
