Our grip on 6th place is pretty tenuous at this point. We're one spot ahead of NE; tied on points with 29, but we get the tiebreaker (which isn't GD I guess since they have a better GD). The bigger problem may be Nashville, who's in 8th place, one point back with 28. But they have a game in hand.
I'd say put your strongest lineup out there for the next two games to hold onto 6th place.
First tiebreaker is wins, to which we have the 8-7 advantage on New England.
I agree. I wouldn't bet on us securing the 6th seed, mainly because of Nashville. They have the game in hand, as you mentioned, and while they don't have an easy schedule to close out their season, I also wouldn't classify it as brutal: vs. Chicago, vs. Dallas, @ Orlando. I also wouldn't bet on us securing all 6 points in our remaining games.
