Outside 'Bama at #1 it's too hard to predict but
Winner of Miami/Clemson will get in
Oklahoma should get in
Then its a toss up with a lot of if's

If the Tide play anything like they did at Miss State they値l be creamed travelling to Jordan-Hare.

I want to see what the committee will do with a one loss non-SEC champion Tide. A few years ago LSU beat them and won the SEC title but still got in to the national title game under the old system, winning the title.

Can they be a one loss champion though? If Auburn beats them, will Auburn not win the West? And if they lose to Georgia they'll obviously not be champion.

I mean Bama would be a one-loss team and not the SEC champions - Auburn wins out they win the SEC West, same goes for Bama.

Ah yes, I read that wrong. I thought you said you wanted to see what they'd do with a one loss SEC champion. That's what I meant by carnage. If Auburn wins the SEC, Alabama will still be in with one loss I bet.

Also - forgot to mention that the game changing challenge that Fox made had a huge impact. I think Fox and co deserve a good bit of credit for turning around the Bears, especially on defence, but that was a crazy decision to challenge. The ball was on the 1 yard line for 1st and goal and you have Jordan Howard.

Yup but I do have some sympathy for him on that -I'm still not convinced he fumbled it until afterwards

Is a 12-28 record what passes for turning it around in Chicago? Fox, like Jeff Fisher before him, is one of the coaches I知 continually amazed stays employed.

They're a much better team with a good defence this season. That's progress. To suggest otherwise is bull. Fox has also won the AFC and NFC Championship game as a coach and brought Vic Fangio who is one of the best defensive coaches in the NFL. Fox has a winning record everywhere bar Chicago which to be fair was a mess when he took over. Made 4 successive AFC Championship games with the Broncos. I do think Fox will go after this season, that defeat last weekend probably tipped things irreversibly against him.

Not sure what more Fox can do with the tools at his disposal

Sure just google the info about Chicago's last five seasons and the changes that happened and you will soon be an expert on Da Bears under Fox just like you are now an Auburn alum!!

Another big win for the vikings against the Rams tonight. 24-7 against one of the highest scoring teams in the NFL. The Lions scraped a win tonight to stay in touch. The division outcome could be as good as decided next week when the vikings play the lions in Detroit.

Nathan Peterman throws five Ints in the first half, it would be comical if it wasn稚 a totally self-inflicted injury by a team owning a wild card spot entering the weekend.

Tyrod Taylor really needs to tell the Bills to fck off in the off-season.
