I put this to the GREAT FOOTBALL MINDS here at the DN, I know you will not let me down.
I understand that the wild card round will determine who plays who in the Divisional round. The teams that are left after the wild card round will play the #1 & #2 seeded teams(Saints and Vikings) the team with the worst seeding playing the Saints #1 seed and the best seeding Wild card team will play us. My question is this, is there another shuffle of the seeding or once they determine the seeding for the Divisional round, I thought that the brackets were set and no other shuffle happens. The reason I ask is if the Packers happen to beat the Arizona and then go on to beat the Saints would they then have home field advantage for the Championship game (b/c they beat the 1 seed)? Or does the best seed always have the home field advantage. I had some one I trust tell me that the Pack can have a home game against us if all went well for them and us. I wonder if that is correct. I have checked every where I can think of, and haven't found an answer.
I thought once the seeding was set in the Divisional round the brackets were set and the tournament was a typical single elimination with the winner advancing to the Championship round against the other winning team, and the lowest seeded team has home field advantage.
Please clear up my confusion. Thanks
