The NFL's consistent season is over, the playoffs are here and the calendar is set. We know the higher seeds are truly enormous top choices over the lower seeds and we realize that Matt McGloin/Connor Cook and Brock Osweiler/Tom Savage are going head to head in a real, genuine playoff diversion.
While we normally look to the earlier week when looking at past Super Bowl chances, will do it a little contrastingly and investigate where these groups stood an entire year prior. The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook tracks the chances from Jan. 1, 2016, through now, with only 12 groups staying in the playoffs.
Two of them are significantly in front of the rest.
1. New England Patriots (7-5, Previously 8-1 on Jan. 1, 2016): The Pats are ensured to play either Matt McGloin/Connor Cook, Matt Moore or Brock Osweiler/Tom Savage in their first playoff diversion. You can pencil them into the AFC Championship Game for a 6th straight season. In the event that somebody can overturn the Steelers, they will waltz to the Super Bowl.
2. Dallas Cowboys (7-2, Previously 14-1): Some people saw Dallas possibly backing off amid the extend keep running of 2016, yet it wasn't the situation. Indeed, even a misfortune to the Eagles was genuinely amazing thinking of it as brought about Tony Romo resembling a stud reinforcement quarterback. Having a bye is a gigantic help for the NFC's best group, clearly.
3. Green Bay Packers (8-1, Previously 10-1): A simple spot to put these folks after Aaron Rodgers called his shot and the Packers ran the table. Green Bay fell similarly as 80-1 at one point in the season, which means there could be some unsafe cash riding on the Packers at this moment. 8-1 isn't appalling chances for how warm this group has been. They get New York then will go to Dallas or Atlanta in the event that they win.
The Packers couldn't be more sultry entering the playoffs.
4. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-1, Previously 8-1): Another white-hot group that comes into the playoffs streaking. Ben Roethlisberger is playing great yet has another rigging, while Le'Veon Bell tossed his name into the MVP discussion with a late surge. Pittsburgh ought to keep inclining toward him and could undoubtedly make it back to the Super Bowl given the absence of perilous contenders in the AFC.
5. Kansas City Chiefs (10-1, Previously 20-1): The most underrated group in the playoffs. Individuals aren't giving the Chiefs enough credit - recollect that, they have the bye (not Pittsburgh) and they are well behind the Steelers as far as chances, with respect to their status as the No. 2 seed. Andy Reid is 19-2 after a bye in both the standard season and postseason, which is awful news for Pittsburgh in the event that they win in the first round.
6. Atlanta Falcons (10-1, Previously 40-1): OK perhaps these folks are the most underrated group in the playoffs. Atlanta likewise has the bye, yet is behind Green Bay regarding chances. Matt Ryan is playing at a MVP level, Julio Jones can possibly totally assume control over the playoffs and Dan Quinn has the barrier playing superior to anything individuals think.
The Falcons get a first-round bye before starting their Super Bowl interest.
7. Seattle Seahawks (12-1, Previously 8-1): This is about to the extent we've seen Seattle slip this season, yet it shouldn't shock given their battles. Seattle couldn't generally run the ball against the 49ers this previous end of the week and it's difficult to believe the Seahawks hostile line in the postseason. The guard hasn't been the same since Earl Thomas went down.
8. New York Giants (20-1, Previously 40-1): Do you have confidence in Eli Manning chugging mysterious playoff solution and making another Super Bowl run? Provided that this is true, these are truly great chances. He has had awesome minutes in the postseason and this season he again has a Giants protection equipped for overwhelming groups (they've beaten the Cowboys twice) and one of the best collectors in the amusement in Odell Beckham Jr.
9. Houston Texans (80-1, Previously 40-1): Talk about a lofty dropoff. That is the thing that happens when you move from a quality quarterback to a blend of Tom Savage and Brock Osweiler. The Texans could absolutely propel one round in light of the fact that they have the Raiders on Wild Card Weekend, yet it's difficult to envision the trip going any more distant than that, particularly since a Pittsburgh win would send them to New England for the divisional round.
10. Miami Dolphins (80-1, Previously 50-1): It's anything but difficult to see this moving somewhat higher if Ryan Tannehill could play, however Adam Gase made that sound like an entirely huge extend. The Dolphins additionally have the heartbreaking duty of playing the Steelers in the first round - an excursion to Houston would be considerably more satisfactory. It's important that Miami as of now beat Pittsburgh once this season, in any case.
The Dolphins beat the Steelers in the normal season yet would they be able to do it in the playoffs?
11. Oakland Raiders (100-1, Previously 50-1): Clearly a colossal Derek Carr figure here. The Raiders had a bolt on the second seed until Carr went down and now they're underdogs to the Texans in the first round. They could absolutely still force an annoyed with either Matt McGloin or Connor Cook, yet it's not plausible to appear them progressing. In the event that Pittsburgh wins, they would go to New England for the divisional round.
12. Detroit Lions (100-1, Previously 40-1): That's a hell of a season for Jim Caldwell and Matthew Stafford to try and make the playoffs. Their street to the Super Bowl is an absurdly troublesome one, be that as it may. To start with they go to Seattle. A win would likely send them to Dallas (additionally potentially Atlanta). They would need to win one more street diversion before playing in the Super Bowl. That is fierce for a group with a thin room for mistakes in a huge amount of diversions this year.
