Beard Ada 332-2688 by the associated press it would have been so Nice so simple if Miami had knocked off Baltimore if Oakland had beaten Houston if Minnesota had Defeated Detroit. But the Colts downed the dolphins the oilers edged the raiders and the Lions surprised the Vikings on sunday. So instead of a Clear precise View of the National football league playoffs just two weekends away fuzziness pervades the picture with a lot still to be decided in next weekends final regular season action. The Sites for the dec. 27-28 first round games Are determined As the nil guide says As follows the win ingest team in each conference hosts the wild card team and the second winning est hosts the third winning est. But if the top Winner and the wild card team Are from the same division then the winning est hosts the third winning est and the second winning est hosts the wild card club. In the National conference the four playoff teams Are set a but which team plays where is still undecided. The division winners Are St. Louis in the East Minnesota in the Central and los Angeles in the West with Dallas from the East being the wild card team. Both los Angeles and Minnesota Are 11-2 and St. Louis is 10-3. If All three win next weekend the Vikings and rams would be the hosts in the first round. And who play will be decided by a complicated Point rating system which involves Points scored is. Points allowed by teams against others within their conference. The rams could Host the wild card cowboys and St. Louis could be at Minnesota a or it could be the other Way around. And that a Only one possibility. If the vikes and rams lose and St. Louis wins All three will be 11-3 and the Point rating system will decide the hosts. In the american conference with the East division title and wild card still up for grabs things Arentt even As Clear As the pfc picture. Miami and Baltimore at 9-4, Are tied for first in the East. Pittsburgh at 12-1, has clinched both the Central title and the Honor of being the top conference Winner. But with Cincinnati the Central division runner up at 16-3 and in the wild card running Pittsburgh a opponent Isnit set yet. And because of that neither is Oakland a the West division Winner at 10-3, although the raiders will be a Host since they be beaten both Miami and Baltimore the Eastern title contenders.
