Playoff Race Status - October 17th

Things are getting tight as we run in to the end of the season.  Right now everybody has 2 games left and the standings look like this:

Recent results have pretty much gone against us but we still control our own destiny.  Two wins and we're in no matter what.  Anything less than that will depend on results in other games.  We can clinch as soon as Sunday if results go our way.  Here's what we're rooting for this weekend:

Seattle @ Dallas: Dallas is eliminated so any points they take off of a playoff candidate is a good thing.  A Dallas win would be ideal.

FSL @ Portland: Portland, of course.  Technically a Portland win eliminates us from a chance at the top spot but I don't think we're getting there anyway and anything that hurts FSL is good.

San Jose @ LA: If we win on Saturday we clinch a playoff spot if LA gets any points out of this game.  I think the best result is a draw as it clinches our playoff spot but leaves LA close enough to catch in the final week.  Technically San Jose could catch us after a draw, but they would have to outscore us by 9 in two games, so its all but mathematically clinched.
