I am totally stealing this from r/NFLplayoffscenarios

Team control
A controlled playoff seed is the worst seed a team can get if they win out. It's possible that they could get a higher seed, but at worst they will get the controlled seed. Note that because teams play each other, these are often mutually exclusive.

Teams that control the 1 seed: PHI NE PIT
Teams that control the 2 seed: MIN
Teams that control the 3 seed: JAC TEN
Teams that control the 4 seed: ATL CAR NO SEA LAR KC OAK
Teams that control the 5 seed: None!
Teams that control the 6 seed: None!

Teams that could win out and still miss the playoffs (also known as not controlling their own destiny):
DAL WAS CHI DET GB TB ARI
BUF MIA NYJ BAL CIN HOU IND LAC DEN

Possible Seeds
Most teams can still get all seeds 1-6 with the following exceptions:

WAS can only get seeds 5-6
CHI can only get seeds 5-6
TB can only get seeds 3-6
ARI can only get seeds 2-6
MIA can only get seeds 2-6
NYJ can only get seeds 2-6
HOU can only get seeds 2-6
IND can only get seeds 3-6
DEN can only get seeds 3-6

The Lions are imploding and the Packers are going to make the playoffs, probably clinching at Ford Field

Then they're gonna go on a Super Bowl run, beating the Vikings at their brand new stadium and then winning the Super Bowl in it, solidifying Aaron Rodgers as one of the best quarterbacks of all time

To be fair, I also predicted that the Packers would still win the NFCN after Aaron Rodgers' injury, and that's preeeetty much out of the question now.

Week 13 Update!

Spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Standings
1 Panfan 67%
1 Dylan 67%
3 Marilink 58%
3 Glux 58%
5 HotD 50%
5 Kat 50%
5 March 50%
8 Auron 33%

Notes:
-RIP Lions
-Kat and March have been surging, while HotD has been betrayed by vikings being #ActuallyGood this year.
-The top of this game is still entirely up for grabs. Even the 50%ers have a shot at the top spot...but not for long. With only 4 weeks left, the opportunities to catch up to Panfan and Dylan are waning. No elimination scenarios for anyone else yet, but they could be coming as soon as next week.

Matchups:
@glux vs. @Marilink - This is a real matchup, folks because BOTH picked THEIR OWN TEAM to WIN
