Ranking NFL Playoff Teams on Their Super Bowl Title Chances

Heading into Week 17 of the 2012 NFL season, a significant amount of the NFL postseason picture is still completely up in the air. 

The six playoff teams in the AFC have already been determined, but the seeding for the top three teams has not. The Houston Texans, currently the top seed in the AFC, could drop as low as three if they lose to the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots win on Sunday. 

In the NFC, five teams are fighting for the final two postseason spots. The Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys play for the NFC East division title on Sunday night, while the Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears and New York Giants are competing for the final wild-card spot (although technically the Redskins could also earn the final wild-card spot). 

The following slides will rank the teams in order of their chances of winning the Super Bowl. I do take into account a team's uphill battle to even make the postseason in the first place, like the Giants.
