Yesterday’s set of games may end up having been the most important of all season in terms of setting up the playoff picture, with a whole host of teams eliminated from playoff contention, and teams finally breaking free at the top of the AFC South and NFC East. On the other hand, this means that at least seven fanbases now have nothing to look forward to but the draft. So, with just under half the league now looking ahead to the spring, here’s the updated order for the 2016 draft:  

  1. Tennessee Titans (.214) (Strength of Schedule: .488)
  2. Cleveland Browns (.214) (SOS: .536)
  3. San Diego Chargers (.286) (SOS: .515)
  4. Baltimore Ravens (.286) (SOS: .518)
  5. Dallas Cowboys (.286) (SOS: .542)
  6. San Francisco 49ers (.286) (SOS: .546)
  7. Detroit Lions (.308) (SOS: .533)
  8. Jacksonville Jaguars (.357) (SOS: .466)
  9. Miami Dolphins (.357) (SOS: .473)
  10. Chicago Bears (.357) (SOS: .534)
  11. New Orleans Saints (.385) (SOS: .510)
  12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (.429) (SOS: .481)
  13. New York Giants (.429) (SOS: .497)
  14. Indianapolis Colts (.429) (SOS: .506)
  15. Oakland Raiders (.429) (SOS: .506) The Raiders have a better record within the conference, so the Colts are considered ‘weaker’ for draft purposes
  16. Philadelphia Eagles (.429) (SOS: .512)
  17. Buffalo Bills (.429) (SOS: .518)
  18. St. Louis Rams (.429) (SOS: .528)
  19. Atlanta Falcons (.500) (SOS: .481)
  20. New York Jets (.643) (SOS: .442)
  21. Kansas City Chiefs (.643) (SOS: .483)
  22. Minnesota Vikings (.643) (SOS: .498)
  23. Pittsburgh Steelers (.643) (SOS .509)
  24. Seattle Seahawks (.643) (SOS: .524)
  25. Washington Redskins (.500) (SOS: .480)
  26. Houston Texans (.500) (SOS: .502)
  27. Denver Broncos (.714) (SOS: .497)
  28. Green Bay Packers (.714) (SOS: .512)
  29. Cincinnati Bengals (.786) (SOS: .469)
  30. Arizona Cardinals (.857) (SOS: .468)
  31. New England Patriots (.857) (SOS: .460)
  32. Carolina Panthers (1.000) (SOS: .446)
