NFL playoff odds 2013: Patriots have excellent shot to play in January
Football Outsiders compiled the chances of every team in the NFL by simulating the season 10,000 times based on the websites' preseason DVOA rankings. New England ranks behind only the Denver Broncos in terms of probability to get into the playoffs.
Denver is ranked as having an 88.6 percent chance playing in the weak AFC West. Football Outsiders expect the Broncos and Patriots to win over 10 games, more than any other team in the conference.
Incredibly, the Atlanta Falcons who were the No. 1 seed last season, are picked to finish last in the NFC South. The Minnesota Vikings are projected to win only 5.7 games, the lowest number of any team in the NFL after being a wild card team in 2012.
