Playoff Chances For Each NFL Team

This article will show you the chances for each NFL team to make the playoffs for the 2018-2019 season. The chances are based on a 1-100% chance while accounting mathematically for seeding and divisional standings. This list is built on facts, but will also be weighed with opinions, seeing as to how this isn’t an exact science.

All final percentages will come as an average from my personal, off the top of my head opinion, the division win chance, and the chance that they’re one of six seeds.

*O = Opinion, D = Divisional, S = Seeding*

One more thing: Don’t be upset if your teams chance seems too low. Because there’s so much to account for in this, including injury possibility, star power, divisional power, strength of schedule, etc, some teams that I have going to the playoffs in my record predictions may be much lower than they should be.
