    To break a tie between 2 teams from the same division:

    1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the teams).

    2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.

    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.

    4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.

    5. Strength of victory.

    6. Strength of schedule.

    7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.

    8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
