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
