Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

UsageEdit

This is a template that was created to easily update every article with the 2016 NFC standings.

The teams should be sorted according to the NFL tiebreaking rules, as indicated by such reliable sources as ESPN's playoff standings (the conference standings page on NFL.com are usually not accurate on this issue because they normally do not sort them by ALL the tiebreaking rules until the end of the season).

Because of the complexities of the tiebreaking rules, anything that is not verifiable may be reverted on grounds of original research. The footnotes listing the tiebreakers are currently displayed using the "lower-alpha" predefined footnote group (see WP:EXPLNOTE).

To use the update on any article, insert:

{{2016 NFC standings}}

To highlight the Seattle Seahawks, insert:

{{2016 NFC standings|team=SEA}}

The following are the codes for the teams in the NFC:

  • ARI - Arizona Cardinals
  • ATL - Atlanta Falcons
  • CAR - Carolina Panthers
  • CHI - Chicago Bears
  • DAL - Dallas Cowboys
  • DET - Detroit Lions
  • GB - Green Bay Packers
  • LA - Los Angeles Rams
  • MIN - Minnesota Vikings
  • NO - New Orleans Saints
  • NYG - New York Giants
  • PHI - Philadelphia Eagles
  • SF - San Francisco 49ers
  • SEA - Seattle Seahawks
  • TB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • WAS - Washington Redskins
