Updated Chances of Each NFL Team Making the Playoffs in 2012

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.
