NFL 2021 Playoff Picture: Here are the 14 teams projected to playoff with the Rams and Bengals as division winners

With only three weeks left in the regular season, the playoff picture is still a confusing mess. So far, only ONE team has officially reached a place in the play-offs, which means that 13 of the 14 NFL seats are available.

The only team that can sleep comfortably this week is the Green Bay Packers and that’s because they won their play-off ticket by fixing NFC North. On the other hand, only five teams have been eliminated, which means that 27 teams are still alive, that binds an NFL record for most teams in the race this end of the season.

With the confusing NFL play-off race as always, we are here to help you understand all the chaos and we will do this by projecting the 14 teams that will advance to the play-offs. Predictions are based on data from Stephen Oh from Oh entered some numbers into his SportsLine computer and simulated the rest of the NFL season, and using those numbers, not only were we able to figure out the playoff odds for each team, but we would also project the entire playoff field -it.

With that in mind, let’s get to this week’s playoff predictions. In fact, before we do that, here is a draft that Texans, Jets, Lions, Jaguar and Bears fans might want to read. These five teams have been officially eliminated and if you are a fan of one of these five teams, an imitated draft will probably be a lot more exciting to read than this projection.

As for everyone else, let’s move on to projection.
