Placing odds on each team's chance to make the NFL playoffs is a difficult task. Honestly, the odds we're used to seeing just confuse me.
That's why I developed a tier system that paints a clearer picture of each team's playoff chances.
Below is the breakdown:
Playoff Lock: These are your potential No. 1 seeds and the teams that look the strongest thus far.
Playoff Contender: These teams have a lot of talent but have some question marks.
In by a Hair: These teams squeak into the playoffs.
Left Hanging Their Heads: These teams had false hope of making the playoffs and end the season with a ton of disappointment.
Glimmer of Hope: These teams aren't quite ready for the playoffs, but they have a bright future.
Left Asking When the Draft Is: The worst teams are those looking toward the draft midway through the season.
