What a weird NFL season it is shaping up to be.

Even more weird, on a Sunday when the Dolphins had their first real BYE in over two seasons, their playoff odds improved.

That’s right folks, in a week where the team did not practice, the Dolphins’ playoff chances improved. Weird.

Currently, the Dolphins are in a 5-way battle for the #6 seed, and the final playoff spot in the AFC.

The other four teams battling for the final Wildcard spot, include the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts, and the Tennessee Titans.

Here are what each team’s remaining schedule looks like:


Week 12: @ Indianapolis

Week 13: vs Buffalo

Week 14: vs New England

Week 15: @ Minnesota

Week 16: vs Jacksonville

Week 17: @ Buffalo


Week 12: vs Miami

Week 13: @ Jacksonville

Week 14: @ Houston

Week 15: vs Dallas

Week 16: vs New York Giants

Week 17: @ Tennessee


Week 12: vs Cleveland

Week 13: vs Denver

Week 14: @ Los Angeles Chargers

Week 15: vs Oakland

Week 16: @ Cleveland

Week 17: @ Pittsburgh


Week 12: vs Oakland

Week 13: @ Atlanta

Week 14: @ Kansas City

Week 15: vs Tampa Bay

Week 16: @ Los Angeles Chargers

Week 17: vs Cleveland


Week 12: @ Houston

Week 13: vs New York Jets

Week 14: vs Jacksonville

Week 15: @ New York Giants

Week 16: vs Washington

Week 17: vs Indianapolis

Sure, the rest of the season hinges on the health of Ryan Tannehill and several other key players on both sides of the football. But with all the key injuries the team has had to overcome, 5-5 and “In the Hunt” is all anyone could really ask for.


Will the Dolphins make the playoffs?
