The 2021 Playoff Path For 32 NFL Teams

Since it’s the day before Thanksgiving, it’s that time again to get in the spirit of that holiday, and to look at the paths each team can follow to fulfill their hopes of making the playoffs. Because there are now 17 games in a season, and thus 7 games to go, there is even more hope: all but one team (the Lions) is capable of securing a #1 seed.

And as always, to make this especially sunny for each team, each scenario linked will contain a combination of the highest seed possible for the team in question and/or also inflicting maximum misery upon each team’s division rivals.
