In this format, the first team to score wins the game, unless a field goal is scored on the first possession of overtime. In that event, the team that did not score is allowed one ...

For example, let's say that Team A and Team B are tied and are both in the running for a wildcard spot in the playoffs.

The first, and only, case of a tiebreaker deciding a playoff spot prior to the AFL-NFL merger was a notable one. In 1967, the Baltimore Colts entered the final week of the regular season at 11-0-2, trying to become the first team to go undefeated since the 1929 Green Bay Packers. However, they had to travel to Los Angeles to face the 10-1-2 Rams, their ...

First, it's important to understand what constitutes "finishing" a race in Track and Field. The winner is not the first person to get a body part across the line or "touch the tape" as you referred. The winner is the first person to get their torso across the finish line. A situation similar to this occurred in the US Olympic trials for the 2012 London ...

First, it should be pointed out that until all matches have played, it might be impossible to apply some of the tie-breakers. For this reason, I would consider tables with only 5 matches of 6 played only as informative. For example if you look at this rule: higher number of goals scored away from home in the group matches played among the teams in ...

Briefly, the tie-breaking criteria in the NHL are (at least for this season): The most important is, of course, number of points. The second tie-breaker is number of wins in the games, which were decided in regular time or overtime. (I.e., the wins after shootouts are excluded.) The third tie-breaker is number of points that tied teams have in their games ...

This is the criterion which decides it (emphasis mine). higher number of goals scored away from home in the group matches played among the teams in question; It is basically the same as the well-known away goals rule which is commonly used for two-leg fixtures. If you look at the results in the matches between these two teams, Hapoel scored one ...

If the last two matches of Group F really end the way you predict, then you are right in saying that Germany, Mexico and Sweden would all have 6 points, 3 goals for and 2 against. Martin is also right in pointing out that the next criteria that need to be checked are d), e) and f): If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above three criteria, ...

There are a number of examples of this, but mostly from the days when they didn't have nearly as many tiebreakers before the "coin toss". Some football examples: In Group F of the 1990 World Cup, a drawing of lots was used to decide the positions of the Republic of Ireland and the Netherlands in the group. The 1968 European Championship semi-final ...

Referencing the rules for the 2014 Tour De France (I am assuming that these follow general standards for international cycling, but had a hard time finding a specific source for global cycling competition rules, like FIFA has rules for soccer around the world - if anyone finds a set of rules, I'd be interested in seeing them).

You are wrong. This is very clearly explained to the NFL's tiebreakers page: Two Clubs Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs). i.e. the head to head record is the first tie-breaker to be applied.

First of all, it's a bit unclear how iii. is to be interpreted. If "the results" only refers to the number of points the teams in question have earned while playing against each other, then the three teams (Athletic, United and City) are still tied because they've all won only one match each against the other two teams. So we should go straight to iv., but ...

Theoretically, this value could be very high and there is a way to calculate the maximum possible. It may not be a likely scenario, but imagine a scenario where the Detroit Lions have a perfect season: 16-0. This means that they beat each divisional opponent 2 times each, leaving them with a maximum record of 14-2. However, this is not a possible result ...

Tie breaker number 6 is "Strength of Schedule," and it is indeed the team with the higher Strength of Schedule that is ranked above a team with a lower Strength of Schedule. I think where you might be ...
