IFL Playoff Scenarios

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA--

       Heading into the final week of the regular season here are the current team standings and possible postseason match-ups.  Please note that most of this is subject to change depending on the outcomes of the games in the final week of the regular season.  The 12 teams that have qualified for the playoffs are finalized, all that remains to be decided are the seeds of the teams.  I have tried my best to go over all the possible situations but again, there is a lot of uncertainty heading into the final week.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks.
