NFL Fan Map

So we are at that time of the year where one is trying to calculate the calculus of predicting who will make the playoffs.  The NFL called this one right by having the last two weeks matter with each having divisional matchups.  One only has to look at the NFC, and they will notice that none of the divisions have been decided going into the final week.  While the AFC knows all of its divisional winners, no less than three teams with 8-7 records have an opportunity to make it to the playoffs.

Yahoo Sports has a fun Playoff Scenario Generator where one can make predictions and see how that will affect the playoff scene.

Here are the predictions for Week 17 in the NFL.

PCT Win SCORE VIS HOME SCORE PCT WIN
72.9% 27 CAR at ATL 21
10 BAL at CIN 29 96.5%
19 HOU at TEN 27 79.1%
10 JAC at IND 27 95.2%
16 NYJ at MIA 24 79.6%
27 DET at MIN 34 76.3%
16 WAS at NYG 22 72.6%
21 CLE at PIT 36 92.9%
30 GB at CHI 32 58.8%
96.9% 45 DEN at OAK 25
18 BUF at NE 34 93.8%
16 TB at NO 26 85.7%
19 SF at ARI 24 70.8%
18 KC at SD 24 74.3%
12 STL at SEA 21 83.1%
90.0% 37 PHI at DAL 25

If these results hold true, then the playoff picture will look like this:

As the rankings currently exist, it appears that the Seahawks and the Broncos hold the big key to home field advantage, in spite of Seattle’s recent loss to Arizona. These are the power ratings for Week 17.
