This NFL season started out with a few teams that we figured would be good, a few we figured would be not so good, and then the rest of the pack.
Nobody stood out at the beginning of the season as clear favorites, and what little difference 10 weeks makes.
We skittered through the first portion of the season and muddled through the bye weeks, only to emerge with a hefty majority of the league still looking like they have the ability to make the playoffs.
In 10 weeks, at least seven teams have tried to make their case for being the best team in the NFL, and just as quickly as they emerge, they plummet back to the pack.
We have a horse race where every horse is neck-and-neck coming around the final turn, and no horse is making a move for the front of the pack.
So I want to help clear up this mess a bit. Here I have an analysis of each team and its shot at making the playoffs at the end of this turbulent season.
Teams are in order of record.
