I've been saying for a while (all year really) that I felt SEA was going to lose to NYG this week. I decided to take it a step further and see just what could happen.
SF @ TB : 49ers should be favored and will likely win
SEA @ NYG : I think NYG will win, but SEA will be favored. (Upset #1)
NYJ @ CAR: CAR should win
NO @ STL: NO should win, but STL isn't a bad team and could pull off the upset. I'll take STL (Upset #2)
1 SEA: 11-3
2 NO: 10-4
5 CAR: 10-4
6 SF: 10-4
ATL @ SF: We should win easily
NO @ CAR: CAR should win this on their home ice
AZ @ SEA: SEA should win, but AZ winning wouldn't be a huge upset. Let's go w/ AZ here (Upset #3)
1 CAR: 11-4
2 SF: 11-4
5 SEA: 11-4
6 NO: 11-4
See where this is headed?
SF @ AZ: Hopefully we win
STL @ SEA: SEA wins! Hooray!
TB @ NO: NO wins again
CAR @ ATL: Let's go ATL (Upset #4 and arguably the biggest of the 4)
1 SF Home field advantage
Is this scenario likely? Not at all. But it is very possible.
To break it down:
SF 3 - 0
CAR 2 -1
SEA 1-2 is definitely the least likely, but the other three are very possible.
I wrote this because I was curious if it was possible to happen and I was getting sick of everyone conceding EVERYTHING to SEA. If my Week 15 prognostication come to fruition, this scenario goes from unlikely to something very interesting to look at.
Another thing to keep in mind is that three of the upsets are road games so aren't out of the realm of possibility. I could see everything on here happening exactly except for the AZ/SEA game. And then that would suck.
