As of this week, the Green Bay Packers are on the outside looking in at the NFC’s playoff seeding. Yes, we’re only five weeks into the year, but it’s still not too early at this point to start trying to imagine how things will stack up down the stretch in December.
However, the current projections aren’t encouraging, particularly given the team’s loss to Detroit on Sunday. One projection system says the Packers are slightly better than a coin-flip to make the postseason — that’s Football Outsiders, who puts Green Bay’s odds at 51%. That’s down about ten percent from a week ago, but it also is the fifth-best chances in the NFC and the second-best of any team not currently leading its division. (That is because all four NFC East teams are under 50% and have less than a 10% chance of making it in as a Wild Card).
