There are many key match ups this weekend that will put emphasis on the Championship Day pairings. Here is where we stand in regards to Championship day pairings:
- The Broncos have CLINCHED, no matter what happens on October 23.
- If the Raiders (2-2) win on Oct. 29, they clinch a spot in the Championship game no matter what happens in the other game.
- The Ravens have been eliminated, no matter if they do win on Oct. 23.
- For the RAMS to get in, the following must occur:
1. The Rams MUST defeat the Ravens on Oct 23.
2. The Rams can only give up 7 or fewer points.They would hold the tie-breaker advantage (second tie-breaker is point allowed) 0ver the Raiders in this case (Points allowed)3. The Ravens have clinced a spot in the Senior-Division consolation game, Sat oct 29 at 11:45am. They will play either the Rams or Raiders.
So,two teams are alive - but much has to happen in the Senior Division for these things to come into play.
