NFL Playoff Seed Probabilities - In Motion

In October of this year, I added playoff seed projections to my daily NFL ranking table, coverting each team's playoff chances into a bite-sized bar graph. As I did with my NBA seed probabilities, I can use Google's Motion Chart tool to show how those seed probabilities evolved over the course of the season.

Fans of the Panthers can see how their team's initially modest playoff hopes transformed into a two-seed and first round bye. Texans fans can relive their team's once high playoff expectations slowly dwindling and blinking out of existence, like so many dying stars.
