# 2021 NFL Playoff Picture: Post-season projected chance for every team into final third of regular season

With 14 teams now in the NFL knockout stages, it’s almost impossible to be left out of contention before the calendar kicks off in December. This year is certainly proof of that.

Despite the 0-10-1 record, the Detroit Lions STILL ALIVE in the playoff race. That was not a typo. If the Lions have about 437 things their way between now and the end of the season, they can sneak into the postseason like a wild card. On the other hand, they could become the first team to be knocked out of the playoffs this week, and that will happen if they lose to Viking on Sunday.

For now, though, every team is still mathematically alive, which brings us to this week’s playoff predictions. The predictions here are based on data from SportsLine.com metric reviewer Stephen Oh. Oh plugged some numbers into his SportsLine calculator this week and then simulated the rest of the NFL season and using those numbers, we can figure out playoff opportunities for all 32 teams. We also expect the 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 fake draft that fans of Jaguars, Jets, Texans and Lions might want to read. While those four teams are still technically not eliminated, the computer is essentially giving them a 0% chance of making it to the knockout stages, so a mock draft might be more interesting to read than Predict this if you are a fan of one of those teams. four teams. Jet fans should definitely click through as your team now has two of the first five picks.

Anyway, for the others, let’s get started.

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.

Here is a list of knockout opportunities for all other AFC teams (their knockout percentages are listed next to them in parentheses): Colts (47.9%), Broncos (22.1%), Raiders (21.3%), Steelers (15.1%), Browns (11.2%), Dolphins (1.7%), Jaguars ( 0.0%), Jets (0.0%), Texans (0.0%).

Note: The Jets, Jaguars, and Texans aren’t out of the playoffs, but they have a 0% chance of making it to the list because the computer hates them. Actually the computer doesn’t love or hate it, it has no emotions. It just doesn’t think there’s a mathematical chance for any of those teams to make it.
