INFC site divisional rankings look like they include all losses. Not sure on the accuracy though.

FYI, not sure if this helps

Article 2: Marginal Points
Marginal Points shall be calculated for each divisional game played
throughout the regular season. Post-Season eligibility and seeding shall be determined utilizing marginal points. The maximum number of marginal points
per game shall be eight points. No team shall add or subtract more than eight
points per game.
A. The maximum number of marginal points for any games that went into
overtime shall be plus or minus one point.
B. If two teams are tied (on marginal points), the advancer shall be the
team that defeated the other during the regular season.
1. If three teams are tied (on marginal points), the advancer shall be
determined by coin toss at a time and place determined by the
Commissioner.
2. Remaining playoff spots for tied teams, which lose the coin toss,
shall be determined by which team defeated the other during the
regular season play

Rankings only include divisional games, non division don’t count for or against you. The INFC website is all wrong and screwed up. The way I read the rules is that playoffs and seeds are determined on marginal points FIRST. Marginal points only count from divisional games. And an OT win/loss only counts as 1 point for/against you. Then if tied in marginal points it goes
to head to head. It really doesn’t say anything about win-loss record. So technically a team
With more division losses could get in the playoffs over a team with less division losses if they have more marginal points.

That’s the way I interpreted the rule book too. Doesn’t make much sense though, it seems wins/losses would come first, then head to head, then maybe marginal points for a tie breaker

I posed the question in the general discussion area of the forum and this was the response from the administrator;

forumadmin:

Playoffs are determined by overall divisional record.  In the event of a tie, head to head matchup determines the tiebreaker.  In the event of a three way tie, marginal points (+/-8 per game) are used to advance.  If the remaining two are still tied, it then goes back to head-to-head matchup.

Appreciate the kind words. We’re just learning the game down here, buckling chinstraps without a coach, catching a  pass etc. We’re getting there day by day instead of week by week

Something to clarify that was left out above in relation to a 3 way tie between 3 teams. It still goes head to head first, so if one team beat the other two that team would be the winner. That is rare though.

The forum admin probably knows but that info directly contradicts what the rule book says. It specifically states playoffs and seeds are determined by marginal points. (Article 2, page 28)

A. In the event three or more teams are tied with identical records and no
winner can be determined
, the advancing team shall be determined
by totaling the margin of points for each tied team in all Divisional
games (or division games if two or more divisions). The advancing
team shall be the team with the greatest number of marginal points.


If one team beats the other two that means a winner can be determined.
Team A beats Team B and Team C.

Points would be used in the following scenario.
Team A: beats Team B and loses To Team C
Team B: beats Team C and loses to Team A
Team C: beats Team A and loses to Team B
