As will be cited no fewer than 600 times per minute this evening, the winner of this game, despite being 4-7, will only be a game behind Seattle and St. Louis for first place in the NFC West. And that’s fantastic. I hope the winner of this division loses 10 games. And then goes on to win the conference. Something extreme that would impel the league to do something with its playoff structure. Of course, whatever solution they came up with would be even worse somehow.
In the meantime, ESPN is pulling out all the stops to inject hype into this contest during the pregame.
