If we’ve learned one thing from Week 10, it’s that the NFL’s playoff picture can change in an instant, which is something the Ravens, Cardinals, Rams and Raiders have all found very challenging.
Last week, all four of those teams were in pretty good positions in our knockout predictions, but then each went away and struggled in Week 10. So how has that affected come NFL playoff visuals heading to Week 11?
That’s the question we’re going to answer right now in this week’s playoff screening. The forecasts here are based on data from SportsLine.com digital analyst Stephen Oh. Oh plugged some numbers into his SportsLine calculator this week and simulated the rest of the NFL season, and using those numbers we’ll show you the playoffs for all. 32 teams, along with the expected knockout stage of 14 teams.
With that in mind, let’s get to this week’s playoff predictions. Actually, before we do that, this is a mock draft that fans of Jets, Texans and Lions might want to read. The calculator essentially gives those three teams a 0% chance of getting into the knockout stages, so a dummy draft might be more fun to read than this prediction if you’re a fan of one of them. those three teams.
For the others, let’s start the show.
Note: Remember, this is a prediction based on how we think the rest of the regular season will play out. If you want to see the current playoff standings, Be sure to click here.

Note: The Jets, Jaguars and Texans aren’t out of the playoffs, but they don’t have a percentage chance of passing because the computer hates them. In fact, the computer doesn’t love or hate, it has no emotions, it just doesn’t think there’s a mathematical chance that either team can generate it.
