In control of our own destiny


Both Bruce Arians and Larry Fitzgerald were quoted after the Cardinals loss as saying that "the Cardinals are still in control of their own destiny." Maybe I'm mistaken, but I don't see it. Even if the Cardinals win all four games (including a game against the Niners), they would still need the Seahawks to beat the Niners in order to make the playoffs. In that case, they would have split their head-to-head and division games, but the Cardinals would make it in because of a better record against similar opponents. But if the Cardinals win all four games and the Niners beat the Seahawks, the Niners are in by virtue of a better division record. Therefore, the Cardinals are not in control of their own playoff destiny, since they need help from the Seahawks. Someone please correct me if I am wrong -- I do find the tiebreakers and playoff scenarios awfully confusing. But I do think Arians and Fitzgerald may have misspoke.
