After nine weeks of the NFL season, the playoff picture is only slightly clearer than it was when the season started as 24 teams still have a legit shot at the postseason.
Using Five Thirty Eight’s “2016 NFL Predictions,” a model that rates each team and then projects how the regular season will play out, we can get a better sense of the chances every team has to reach the playoffs.
Of the 32 NFL teams, only the New England Patriots at 99% are a lock to make the playoffs. Meanwhile, only eight teams have already been effectively eliminated with less than a 5% chance, including the New York Jets at 3%.
