I'll just post the updated version every tuesday so we'll all know where we stand.

Right now a win only drops us to the #2 spot so we're not in bad shape.

Here is something that is interesting. If the Jets and Packers win another game, and we beat the Niners, we could still end up with the first pick because strength of schedule is the first tie breaker not head to head.

Are you sure? I thought if we tied with anyone we fall behind them due to SOS. Assuming we and the 49ers lose out and we beat them in the last game, we would both be 2 win teams. I THINK they get the 1st at that point. Don't quote me, but I think that is so.

Draft Order Determination

Draft positions are determined by record, the team with the worst record during the regular season picks first and so on. If two teams have the same record, the strength of schedule tie-breaker is used which is the combined winning percentage of all teams on each team's schedule for the current season. If teams are still tied after strength of schedule has been applied, the division or conference tie breakers are used. If teams are still tied after applying all tiebreakers or if two teams are tied that are in different conferences, a coin toss after the season will determine which team gets priority.

OK, then based on that, if we tie with the 49ers at 2 wins each, they would get the #1 as our SOS is stronger.

The team with the LOWER SOS schedule actually gets priority b/c they lost to weaker competition is the way it goes.

So if we win against the Niners we will have the 2nd pick as it would play out.

FYI, someone had posted this and I'll re-post it here. This site has the current draft order as of this week, and it will update after each of the upcoming weeks:

According to the NFL your SOS numbers are wrong.

Technically yes, but at the same time the other 13 teams we've already played will be playing another game this week and adding to our overall strength of schedule too, and I believe the strength of schedule only includes teams we've already played, so adding the three new teams that we play and their records over these last few weeks will change it too, so the strength of schedule has the potential to change quite a bit over the last couple weeks.

We need the Colts to start losing and the Seahawks to keep winning.

but basically JUST say for measure we get into the game against the NINERS and our SOS is the same....winner gets 1st pick?

Assuming of course there is a one game difference b/w the two of us or how would that scenario have to play out?

If we enter week 17, have lost at least one of week 15 or 16, are one game behind the 49ers in record and have 2 or more opponent victories then the loser of the week 17 game will have the #1 pick.

If all of the above is true, but we have only 1 more opponent victory than the 49ers, we will have the first pick if we lose and a coin flip for #1 if we win.

If all of the above is true, except that we have the same or fewer number of opponent victories, then we get the #1 pick win or lose. (this is the situation that applies if we assume both teams lose weeks 15 and 16 and today's SOS numbers stay the same)

If our record is tied with the 49ers entering week 17, the loser of the game gets the #1 pick.
