NFL Playoff Picture: Updated Odds and Projections for Every Seed for Week 12

Eleven weeks of NFL football are in the books, and the playoff picture is finally beginning to take shape. Although some teams have emerged as clear-cut favorites, the wild-card positions and some divisional races are still up for grabs and completely wide open in some situations.

I'm going to go about this a little bit differently. Instead of giving you arbitrary percent numbers, I've devised a grading scale to determine the likelihood of each team's chances of making the playoffs, whether it's by winning their respective division or through qualifying for a wild-card spot.

Take a look at the key for the following slides. This should help you understand and make sense of some of the things you'll see in this slideshow.

 

It’s in the bag: 95-100 percent 

Very likely: 80-94 percent

Strong possibility: 65-79 percent

Possible: 50-64 percent

Outside looking in: 35-49 percent

Playoffs? Don’t talk about no playoffs!: 10-34 percent

No, just no: 0-9 percent
