Wake-up caw: Ravens' playoff odds

By Jamison Hensley

The Baltimore Ravens currently hold the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC. But based on the projected odds Insider from Football Outsiders, the Ravens will lose their grasp on it by the end of the season.

The Ravens have a 36.9 percent chance of reaching the postseason. Miami, at 52.9 percent, is the favorite for the conference's second wild-card spot.

It's an Insider post, but here's an excerpt of what Football Outsiders wrote:

"Baltimore's remaining schedule includes three prospective playoff teams (Detroit, New England, Cincinnati), including two of the top three seeds in the AFC. Baltimore's 1.0 projected wins over the final three weeks ranks 30th in the league, and the Ravens figure to be underdogs in each of their remaining games."

The Dolphins' final three games are home against New England, at Buffalo and home against the New York Jets.
