Use wins instead of winning percentage for standings.  For example, an 8-7-1 team would go through the same tie breakers as an 8-8 team.

That seems like a very bad idea.    Say it’s the end of the game and you’re on the 20-yard line down by 3 with 5 seconds to play.  If a tie is no better than a loss, your only choice is to take the low percentage chance that you score a touchdown on the final play, rather than kicking a tying field goal.   That’s wrong and gives an unfair advantage to the team on defense.

Don't trail at the end of the game.

So a game is tied.    One team kicks a field goal with less than a minute to play.    Now the other team has to score a touchdown or it’s the equivalent of a loss for them?   Sorry, that’s artificial and I don’t like it.
