I know this is not the first thread of its kind, but also, I haven't seen a game-by-game analysis. Some of the games below are obvious, but how do the other ones affect Strength of Schedule [SOS]?

I want to be able to look at the scoreboard and know who I should be pulling for...

Below are all the games, and I have put the most obvious desired outcomes below. Anyone know which games are important for Chiefs?

Buffalo at Philadelphia -- Don't care
Carolina at Tampa Bay -- Don't care
Jacksonville at Houston -- Don't care
Tennessee at Indianapolis -- Don't care

Kansas City at N.Y. Jets -- JETS WIN (duh!)

Seattle at Atlanta -- ATLANTA WIN (to move them into a tie)
St. Louis at Arizona -- ST. LOUIS WIN (to move them into a tie)

Pittsburgh at Baltimore -- BALTIMORE WIN (to move them out of tie)
San Diego at Oakland -- OAKLAND WIN (to move them out of tie)
San Francisco at Cleveland -- SAN FRAN WIN (to move them out of tie)

Cincinnati at Miami -- MIAMI WIN
New Orleans at Chicago -- NEW ORLEANS WIN
Minnesota at Denver -- MINNESOTA WIN
Detroit at Green Bay -- GREEN BAY WIN
Dallas at Washington -- DALLAS WIN

Again, not looking for percentages, just who should we all be pulling for.

Thanks!

So, from that thread, we need...

Denver, Oakland, SD, GB, Minn, Chi, Det, Cin, Indy, Jax, Hou and Tenn to all lose? (from cdcox post).

Updating the initial post to reflect this..

Buffalo at Philadelphia -- Don't care?
Carolina at Tampa Bay -- Don't care?
Pittsburgh at Baltimore -- Don't care?
Dallas at Washington -- Don't care?

Detroit at Green Bay -- Need both to lose?
Jacksonville at Houston -- Need both to lose?
Minnesota at Denver -- Need both to lose?
Tennessee at Indianapolis -- Need both to lose?
San Diego at Oakland -- Need both to lose?

Cincinnati at Miami -- MIAMI WIN
New Orleans at Chicago -- NEW ORLEANS WIN
Seattle at Atlanta -- ATLANTA WIN
San Francisco at Cleveland -- SAN FRAN WIN (to move them out of tie)
Kansas City at N.Y. Jets -- JETS WIN
St. Louis at Arizona -- ST. LOUIS WIN

-------------------------------------

Does this seem right? That's alot of don't cares (which I find hard to believe since some of the teams we are tied with must have played them) and alot of both teams should lose?

Tennessee at Indianapolis -- Doesn't really matter
San Diego at Oakland -- Want Oakland to win

Cincinnati at Miami -- MIAMI WIN
New Orleans at Chicago -- NEW ORLEANS WIN
Seattle at Atlanta -- ATLANTA WIN

Updated the thread starter.

i still think that these 3 are the only ones that really matter


Kansas City at N.Y. Jets -- JETS WIN (duh!)

Seattle at Atlanta -- ATLANTA WIN (to move them into a tie)

St. Louis at Arizona -- ST. LOUIS WIN (to move them into a tie)



we are playing a bad team = SOS goes down

St. Louis playing a better team = SOS goes up a little

atlanta playing a good team = SOS goes up

Laz, our SOS depends on the whole record of every team we play this year. Take for example the Minnesota-Denver garme. We played Denver twice and Minnesota once. So if Denver loses and Minnesota wins it makes our SOS weaker by a net of one game. But Minnesota also played Atlanta and SF. So Minnesota winning would improve the SOS of those teams too (helping us get a better draft position).

You know, I think I'm just going to wait for the games to play out and find out where we sit after.

All these draft position possibilities just make my head hurt.

yea,yea so i've heard

i've watched our SOS at GBN the last few weeks and it doesn't seem to swing that dramatically every week to me.
