Alright, so in my mind there is a huge difference between these two records based on how our season has gone so far. There is no clear cut contender this year and 5-2 puts toward the top. 5-2, with a little unlikely help, makes us the best team in the NFC by Sunday evening.
On the other hand, 4-3 is pretty damn lousy, which would mean two home losses in a row to struggling teams after those two huge wins on the road. It would mean stuck in the pack of wild card contenders that is very full, going in the wrong direction, very depressed.
Conclusion: this is a tipping point game. win and we are still kind of good/sky is the limit.
