And it's one of the most ridiculous.
The Giants won the Super Bowl last year when 9 teams had a better record than they did going into the playoffs.
Their record said they were the 10th best team. While I'm not one that believes the best team is the one that wins the Super Bowl, I'll guarantee the 10th best team never does.
And that scenario has happened a few times.
2010: 7 teams "better" than the Packers.
2007: 6 teames "better" than the Giants.
