Earlier this week we asked you which 2018 playoff teams you thought would not make it back to the playoffs in 2019, and the voting was pretty conclusive, at least at the time I’m writing this. The Seahawks (36% of the votes) and the Eagles (31%) were the favorites to miss the playoffs this year, with the Bears coming in third (19%).
Which brings us to our question of the day: Which new teams do you expect to make the playoffs for the NFC this season?
The following ten teams are candidates to make the playoffs in 2019 after failing to make the playoffs in 2018, ranked by their Super Bowl odds.
14-1 odds: Packers (6-9-1 record in 2018)
30-1 odds: Falcons (7-9)
60-1 odds: Panthers (7-9)
200-1 odds: Cardinals (3-13)
We’ll put all ten teams up for a vote below, even if the chances of some teams appear pretty slim. In previous years, 10 wins have usually meant a playoff berth. For many of the teams above, improving to 10 wins will likely be quite a challenge, let alone making it all the way to the Super Bowl.
To date, a total of 12 teams in the NFL have never won a Super Bowl. Five of them play in the NFC (the Vikings, Cardinals, Panthers, Falcons, and Lions have never won a Super Bowl), and all five are trying to make it back into the playoffs this year.
Who’s your pick to make it back to the playoffs this season after not making it last year? Leave your thoughts in the comments and place your vote in the attached poll.
