sportsformulator-com-header

We’re six week through the 2016-17 NFL season and it’s never too early to look forward to the NFL Playoffs.  We have predicted how the playoffs will go based upon the current NFL standings.

Having played six games in six weeks has its advantages, it gets you in our playoff predictions this week (minus the 5-0 Vikings).  Teams haven’t separated much as records vary from the 5-0 Vikings to 4-2.

The AFC East and West each get two playoff teams.  If the Broncos are to claim a repeat Super Bowl run, they’re going to have to do it on the road from the Wildcard round.

In the NFC, how will Sam Bradford handle the playoffs?  Will Dak Prescott QB a playoff run for the Cowboys or will Tony Romo be the man to get them to the playoffs?




AFC Standings

1 – New England Patriots
2 – Oakland Raiders
3 – Pittsburgh Steelers
4 – Houston Texans
5 – Denver Broncos

NFC Standings 

1 – Minnesota Vikings
2 – Dallas Cowboys
3 – Seattle Seahawks
4 – Atlanta Falcons
