Using playoffpredictors.com I predicted the outcome of every game for the rest of the season.
Byes go to the Ravens and Bills. They are clearly the top 2 in the conference and should be able to coast to the playoffs. Ravens schedule is pretty tough, so they could lose more than one game to close out the regular season. The Bills only have one tough game left, so they can start resting starters if they want.
Other division winners are the Cheifs and Texans. I see the Broncos continuing to collapse and not even challenge Kansas City for the West. The Texans and Colts are pretty close, but I have the Texans ahead by 1 game.
Wildcard spots are earned by the Colts and Browns. I see 3 teams tied for the second wildcard spot at 10-6, but the Browns win by tiebreaker. The can easily make the postseason if Baker can heat up and play like he did through the first few games. Sorry Bengals and Jags, you just missed the cut.
Byes go to the Giants and Seahawks. Seattle is pretty much a lock for home field advantage with their soft schedule. The Giants have a pretty tough schedule, so don't be surprised if the Bucs end up passing them in the standings. Outside of these 3 teams, there is no real contender.
The Bucs will run away with their division, and the other automatic bid goes to the Vikings. They may not crack 10 wins, but they have the easiest division in the league now that Aaron Rodgers was traded away. It would be a big disappointment if either of these teams choked away their division.
Cowboys and Eagles will make the playoffs with a 9-7 record. 4 teams are nipping at their heels at 8-8. The Saints, Panthers, Falcons, and Rams could all make the playoffs, but they have some work to do. Saints are playing without Kamara, the Falcons don;t have much of a run game, The panthers only have 1 good player on defense, and the Rams have more turnovers than a bakery.
