I watched the game last night against the Esks. The TSN announcers kept saying that if Edmonton got that last second field goal they would win the "series" against B.C. But here is what I don't get:
B.C. and Edmonton played each other 4 times. After last night's game they each won 2 games. Okay, so to break the tie you look at total points scored for each team against the other. Going into last night's game Edmonton had outscored B.C. by 12 points. In other words before last night's game Edmonton had scored 96 points to B.C.'s 84 points. If Edmonton had scored the field goal the final score would have been 43- 31 for B.C. That would have given B.C. a total of 127 points. It would have also given Edmonton a total of 127 points against B.C. So, why would Edmonton have won the series by scoring the field goal since both teams beat each other twice and scored 127 points against each other? What am I missing?
