Projecting all the NFL playoff spots

November 30, 2021 09:19 PM

All NFL teams have either five or six games left in their 2021-22 seasons. With the calendar turning to December, the stretch run is truly about to begin. By now we have a pretty good feel for what each team brings to the table. It is a perfect time to project the rest of the season using power ratings and then employ the findings to uncover potential playoff and divisional title odds value.

I took my current power ratings and plotted each team’s remaining schedule while also factoring in my adjusted home- and road-field advantage ratings, any injuries that figure to affect the action and some other minor situational adjustments I make to individual games. I then calculated theoretical lines and win probabilities for each game and used these to forecast records.

AFC EAST

Here are the current division title odds:

Buffalo -140

New England + 115

Miami + 10000

This week’s “Monday Night Football” game between New England and Buffalo will have a huge impact on which team wins the AFC East and gets the home playoff game that comes with it. The edge goes to the Bills as they are playing at home, although the Patriots are the hottest team in the NFL right now and could return the favor three weeks later. That said, the Patriots have a half-game cushion in the standings, and Buffalo faces a daunting task Dec. 12 at Tampa Bay. The Patriots have nothing close to that. Let’s go with coach Bill Belichick’s team to secure the split with Buffalo and eventually the division title. 

Buffalo Bills

Dec. 6: New England — Proj FL: -4.5, Win Prob: 63 percent

Dec. 12: at Tampa Bay — Proj FL: + 2.5, Win Prob: 43 percent

Dec. 18: Carolina — Proj FL: -12.5, Win Prob: 82 percent

Dec. 26: at New England — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Jan. 2: Atlanta — Proj FL: -14, Win Prob: 85 percent

Jan. 9: New York Jets — Proj FL: -17.5, Win Prob: 90 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 4.2-1.8

Miami Dolphins

Dec. 5: New York Giants — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Dec. 18: New York Jets — Proj FL: -6, Win Prob: 67 percent

Dec. 27: at New Orleans — Proj FL: + 3.5, Win Prob: 40 percent

Jan. 2: at Tennessee — Proj FL: + 5.5, Win Prob: 34 percent

Jan. 9: New England — Proj FL: + 7, Win Prob: 30 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 2.2-2.8

New England Patriots

Dec. 6: at Buffalo — Proj FL: + 4.5, Win Prob: 37 percent

Dec. 18: at Indianapolis — Proj FL: + 0, Win Prob: 50 percent

Dec. 26: Buffalo — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Jan. 2: Jacksonville — Proj FL: -15.5, Win Prob: 88 percent

Dec. 12: New Orleans — Proj FL: + 5, Win Prob: 36 percent

Dec. 18: at Miami — Proj FL: + 6, Win Prob: 33 percent

Dec. 26: Jacksonville — Proj FL: -2, Win Prob: 56 percent

Jan. 2: Tampa Bay — Proj FL: + 14.5, Win Prob: 14 percent

Jan. 9: at Buffalo — Proj FL: + 17.5, Win Prob: 10 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 1.8-4.2

AFC NORTH 

Here are the current division title odds:

Baltimore -175

Cincinnati + 200

Cleveland + 900

Pittsburgh + 3000

For anyone expecting to see a Pittsburgh bounce-back into the playoff picture, you’ll be disappointed to see that my numbers are showing the Steelers face the league’s second-toughest schedule the rest of the way. Baltimore has the easiest remaining slate in the AFC North, although it is by no means easy. Cleveland got its bye week at the right time and faces a pair of must-win games before playing Green Bay on Christmas. I could see a healthy Browns team making a run at the playoffs. Cincinnati figures to be in good position to grab one of the wild-card spots but needs to play well at home down the stretch.

Baltimore Ravens

Dec. 5: at Pittsburgh — Proj FL: -3.5, Win Prob: 60 percent

Dec. 12: at Cleveland — Proj FL: -2, Win Prob: 56 percent

Dec. 19: Green Bay — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Dec. 26: at Cincinnati — Proj FL: + 0.5, Win Prob: 49 percent

Jan. 2: Los Angeles Rams — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Jan. 9: Pittsburgh — Proj FL: -7, Win Prob: 70 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 3.4-2.6

Cincinnati Bengals

Dec. 5: Los Angeles Chargers — Proj FL: -4, Win Prob: 62 percent

Dec. 12: San Francisco — Proj FL: -0.5, Win Prob: 52 percent

Dec. 19: at Denver — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Dec. 26: Baltimore — Proj FL: -0.5, Win Prob: 52 percent

Jan. 2: Kansas City — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Jan. 9: at Cleveland — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 3.2-2.8

Cleveland Browns

Dec. 12: Baltimore — Proj FL: + 2, Win Prob: 44 percent

Dec. 18: Las Vegas — Proj FL: -3, Win Prob: 59 percent

Dec. 25: at Green Bay — Proj FL: + 7, Win Prob: 30 percent

Jan. 3: at Pittsburgh — Proj FL: -0.5, Win Prob: 52 percent

Jan. 9: Cincinnati — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 2.3-2.7

Pittsburgh Steelers

Dec. 5: Baltimore — Proj FL: + 3.5, Win Prob: 40 percent

Dec. 9: at Minnesota — Proj FL: + 5, Win Prob: 36 percent

Dec. 19: Tennessee — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Dec. 26: at Kansas City — Proj FL: + 10, Win Prob: 23 percent

Jan. 3: Cleveland — Proj FL: + 0.5, Win Prob: 49 percent

Jan. 9: at Baltimore — Proj FL: + 7, Win Prob: 30 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 2.3-3.7

AFC SOUTH 

Here are the current division title odds:

Tennessee -2500

Indianapolis + 1000

Tennessee has a two-game lead in the AFC South plus a game edge in the divisional tiebreaker standings. My projections show the same two-game split, so suffice it to say I don’t expect Indianapolis to overtake the Titans down the stretch. My projections include running back Derrick Henry being out for the rest of the regular season, so if he returns earlier, that would only boost their chances. Coach Mike Vrabel’s team plays the easiest remaining schedule of any team. Indy’s isn’t a lot tougher, so the Colts could find themselves in wild-card position with an upset of New England or Arizona.

Houston Texans

Dec. 5: Indianapolis — Proj FL: + 9, Win Prob: 25 percent

Dec. 12: Seattle — Proj FL: + 6.5, Win Prob: 32 percent

Dec. 19: at Jacksonville — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Dec. 26: Los Angeles Chargers — Proj FL: + 6.5, Win Prob: 32 percent

Jan. 2: at San Francisco — Proj FL: + 14.5, Win Prob: 14 percent

Jan. 9: Tennessee — Proj FL: + 6.5, Win Prob: 32 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 1.8-4.2

Indianapolis Colts

Dec. 5: at Houston — Proj FL: -9, Win Prob: 75 percent

Dec. 18: New England — Proj FL: + 0, Win Prob: 50 percent

Dec. 25: at Arizona — Proj FL: + 5, Win Prob: 36 percent

Jan. 2: Las Vegas — Proj FL: -5, Win Prob: 65 percent

Jan. 9: at Jacksonville — Proj FL: -9.5, Win Prob: 76 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 3-2

Jacksonville Jaguars

Dec. 5: at Los Angeles Rams — Proj FL: + 15, Win Prob: 13 percent

Dec. 12: at Tennessee — Proj FL: + 9.5, Win Prob: 24 percent

Dec. 19: Houston — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Dec. 26: at New York Jets — Proj FL: + 2, Win Prob: 44 percent

Jan. 2: at New England — Proj FL: + 15.5, Win Prob: 13 percent

Jan. 9: Indianapolis — Proj FL: + 9.5, Win Prob: 24 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 1.7-4.3

Tennessee Titans

Dec. 12: Jacksonville — Proj FL: -9.5, Win Prob: 76 percent

Dec. 19: at Pittsburgh — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Dec. 23: San Francisco — Proj FL: + 2, Win Prob: 44 percent

Jan. 2: Miami — Proj FL: -5.5, Win Prob: 66 percent

Jan. 9: at Houston — Proj FL: -6.5, Win Prob: 69 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 3-2

AFC WEST 

Here are the current division title odds:

Kansas City -225

Los Angeles Chargers + 350

Denver + 800

Las Vegas + 1200

The four teams in the AFC West are separated by a single game in the standings, so it’s anyone’s division to win. Kansas City, per usual, seems a tad overpriced. The Chiefs still have four divisional games left and face three of their final four opponents on the road. The Chiefs and Chargers have nearly identical schedule strengths the rest of the way, so Los Angeles will have to pull an upset or two to finish the job. Las Vegas plays the toughest remaining slate of any of the four teams and figures to eventually bow out of the playoff picture.

Denver Broncos

Dec. 5: at Kansas City — Proj FL: + 7, Win Prob: 30 percent

Dec. 12: Detroit — Proj FL: -9.5, Win Prob: 76 percent

Dec. 19: Cincinnati — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Dec. 26: at Las Vegas — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Jan. 2: at Los Angeles Chargers — Proj FL: + 1.5, Win Prob: 46 percent

Jan. 9: Kansas City — Proj FL: + 5, Win Prob: 36 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 2.8-3.2

Kansas City Chiefs

Dec. 5: Denver — Proj FL: -7, Win Prob: 70 percent

Dec. 12: Las Vegas — Proj FL: -7.5, Win Prob: 71 percent

Dec. 16: at Los Angeles Chargers — Proj FL: -4.5, Win Prob: 63 percent

Dec. 26: Pittsburgh — Proj FL: -10, Win Prob: 77 percent

Jan. 2: at Cincinnati — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Jan. 9: at Denver — Proj FL: -5, Win Prob: 65 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 4-2

Las Vegas Raiders

Dec. 5: Washington — Proj FL: -3.5, Win Prob: 60 percent

Dec. 12: at Kansas City — Proj FL: + 7.5, Win Prob: 29 percent

Dec. 18: at Cleveland — Proj FL: + 3, Win Prob: 41 percent

Dec. 26: Denver — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Jan. 2: at Indianapolis — Proj FL: + 5, Win Prob: 36 percent

Jan. 9: Los Angeles Chargers — Proj FL: -0.5, Win Prob: 52 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 2.7-3.3

Los Angeles Chargers

Dec. 5: at Cincinnati — Proj FL: + 4, Win Prob: 38 percent

Dec. 12: New York Giants — Proj FL: -5, Win Prob: 65 percent

Dec. 16: Kansas City — Proj FL: + 4.5, Win Prob: 37 percent

Dec. 26: at Houston — Proj FL: -6.5, Win Prob: 69 percent

Jan. 2: Denver — Proj FL: -1.5, Win Prob: 54 percent

Jan. 9: at Las Vegas — Proj FL: + 0.5, Win Prob: 49 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 3.1-2.9

NFC EAST

Here are the current division title odds:

Dallas -800

Washington + 1200

Philadelphia + 1200

New York Giants + 3500

Unlike last year at this time when the NFC East was completely up for grabs, Dallas seems to be in firm position to wrap it up in the next few weeks. But for as much as my projected point spreads show the Cowboys being favored or in a pick-’em game in all six remaining contests, the next three are on the road and will be tough to navigate. The only team that figures to have a chance to catch Dallas is Philadelphia, which plays the second-easiest schedule in the NFL the rest of the way. In fact, my numbers show the Eagles as finishing with a 3.1-1.9 record in the final five games, and those don’t account for improved momentum over the last month. I give coach Nick Sirianni’s team a reasonable chance to slide into one of the final wild-card spots.

Dallas Cowboys

Dec. 2: at New Orleans — Proj FL: -3, Win Prob: 59 percent

Dec. 12: at Washington — Proj FL: -3.5, Win Prob: 60 percent

Dec. 19: at New York Giants — Proj FL: -5, Win Prob: 65 percent

Dec. 26: Washington — Proj FL: -6.5, Win Prob: 69 percent

Jan. 2: Arizona — Proj FL: + 0, Win Prob: 50 percent

Jan. 9: at Philadelphia — Proj FL: + 0, Win Prob: 50 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 3.5-2.5

New York Giants

Dec. 5: at Miami — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Dec. 12: at Los Angeles Chargers — Proj FL: + 5, Win Prob: 36 percent

Dec. 19: Dallas — Proj FL: + 5, Win Prob: 36 percent

Dec. 26: at Philadelphia — Proj FL: + 5.5, Win Prob: 34 percent

Jan. 2: at Chicago — Proj FL: + 0, Win Prob: 50 percent

Jan. 9: Washington — Proj FL: + 1, Win Prob: 47 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 2.5-3.5

Philadelphia Eagles

Dec. 5: at New York Jets — Proj FL: -8, Win Prob: 72 percent

Dec. 18: Washington — Proj FL: -4.5, Win Prob: 63 percent

Dec. 26: New York Giants — Proj FL: -5.5, Win Prob: 66 percent

Jan. 2: at Washington — Proj FL: -2, Win Prob: 56 percent

Jan. 2: Philadelphia — Proj FL: + 2, Win Prob: 44 percent

Jan. 9: at New York Giants — Proj FL: -1, Win Prob: 53 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 2.5-3.6

NFC NORTH 

Here are the current division title odds:

Green Bay -3500

Minnesota + 1400

After Minnesota cut into Green Bay’s divisional lead with a head-to-head win two weeks ago, the Vikings gave it right back Sunday. For all intents and purposes, this division looks like it will go to the Packers for a third straight season. Green Bay has played tremendous football against oddsmakers’ expectations, going 9-2 ATS. The Packers have faced the eighth-toughest schedule in the NFL. The rest of the season’s slate scores as the fourth easiest. Coach Matt LaFleur’s team also owns the head-to-head tiebreaker over Arizona and a better conference record than Tampa Bay. There’s a very good chance the NFC playoffs will go through Lambeau Field. The Vikings also play a fairly easy remaining schedule and have a good shot at a wild-card berth.

Chicago Bears

Dec. 5: Arizona — Proj FL: + 8.5, Win Prob: 26 percent

Dec. 12: at Green Bay — Proj FL: + 11.5, Win Prob: 20 percent

Dec. 20: Minnesota — Proj FL: + 4.5, Win Prob: 37 percent

Dec. 26: at Seattle — Proj FL: + 7.5, Win Prob: 29 percent

Jan. 2: New York Giants — Proj FL: + 0, Win Prob: 50 percent

Jan. 9: at Minnesota — Proj FL: + 7, Win Prob: 30 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 1.9-4.1

Detroit Lions

Dec. 5: Minnesota — Proj FL: + 8, Win Prob: 28 percent

Dec. 12: at Denver — Proj FL: + 9.5, Win Prob: 24 percent

Dec. 19: Arizona — Proj FL: + 12, Win Prob: 19 percent

Dec. 26: at Atlanta — Proj FL: + 5, Win Prob: 36 percent

Jan. 2: at Seattle — Proj FL: + 10.5, Win Prob: 22 percent

Jan. 9: Green Bay — Proj FL: + 12, Win Prob: 19 percent

Dec. 25: Cleveland — Proj FL: -7, Win Prob: 70 percent

Jan. 2: Minnesota — Proj FL: -5.5, Win Prob: 66 percent

Dec. 26: Los Angeles Rams — Proj FL: + 1.5, Win Prob: 46 percent

Jan. 2: at Green Bay — Proj FL: + 5.5, Win Prob: 34 percent

Jan. 9: Chicago — Proj FL: -7, Win Prob: 70 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 3.5-2.5

NFC SOUTH

Here are the current division title odds:

Tampa Bay -5000

New Orleans + 2000

Carolina + 4000

Atlanta + 5000

Tampa Bay is in control of the NFC South and will not be threatened the rest of the way. The other three teams are dealing with massive offensive problems due to injuries or lack of execution. With Atlanta, Carolina and New Orleans sitting with five wins and on the outside of the wild-card hunt, my final projections don’t show any of them finishing over. 500. If I could predict a surprise team of the bunch, it might be New Orleans.The Saints are facing one of the easiest schedules in the league the rest of the way and could throw a wrench into the works by naming Taysom Hill their starting quarterback. Thursday night’s home game against Dallas is huge in terms of their playoff fortunes.

Atlanta Falcons

Dec. 5: Tampa Bay — Proj FL: + 11, Win Prob: 21 percent

Dec. 12: at Carolina — Proj FL: + 3, Win Prob: 41 percent

Dec. 19: at San Francisco — Proj FL: + 10.5, Win Prob: 22 percent

Dec. 26: Detroit — Proj FL: -5, Win Prob: 65 percent

Jan. 2: at Buffalo — Proj FL: + 14, Win Prob: 15 percent

Jan. 9: New Orleans — Proj FL: + 1.5, Win Prob: 46 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 2.1-3.9

Carolina Panthers

Dec. 12: Atlanta — Proj FL: -3, Win Prob: 59 percent

Dec. 18: at Buffalo — Proj FL: + 12.5, Win Prob: 18 percent

Dec. 26: Tampa Bay — Proj FL: + 9, Win Prob: 25 percent

Jan. 2: at New Orleans — Proj FL: + 2, Win Prob: 44 percent

Jan. 9: at Tampa Bay — Proj FL: + 12, Win Prob: 19 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 1.6-3.4

New Orleans Saints

Dec. 2: Dallas — Proj FL: + 3, Win Prob: 41 percent

Dec. 12: at New York Jets — Proj FL: -5, Win Prob: 65 percent

Dec. 19: at Tampa Bay — Proj FL: + 11, Win Prob: 21 percent

Dec. 27: Miami — Proj FL: -3.5, Win Prob: 60 percent

Jan. 2: Carolina — Proj FL: -2, Win Prob: 56 percent

Jan. 2: at New York Jets — Proj FL: -14.5, Win Prob: 86 percent

Jan. 9: Carolina — Proj FL: -12, Win Prob: 81 percent

Projected rest-of-season record: 4.6-1.4

NFC WEST

Here are the current division title odds:

Arizona -1000

Los Angeles Rams + 650

San Francisco + 3500

The odds of Arizona actually separating from the pack in the NFC West over the last few weeks were certainly long with QB Kyler Murray missing action, but that is exactly what happened. Now, with the Cardinals coming off their bye week and boasting a two-game lead, holding all the tiebreakers and seemingly much healthier than just a few weeks ago, this race looks like a foregone conclusion. Don’t overthink it, and don’t overestimate the Rams’ talent level or the 49ers’ momentum. My projections show Arizona finishing with the NFC’s top record and as a favorite or pick-’em in all six remaining games. Los Angeles has a great chance to right the ship this week with Jacksonville coming to town. Coach Sean McVay’s team faces a difficult three-game set to end the season, however. San Francisco has come on in recent weeks but faces a remaining slate featuring four rather tough road games.
