Week 2 is in the books, and boy is there a lot to cover after this one.

The Indianapolis Colts and  Cincinnati Bengals entered this season with championship aspirations but now find themselves in an 0-2 hole to start the campaign. Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills look quite literally untouchable, and a fourth quarter straight out of the twilight zone has the Miami Dolphins all the way up to -175 to make playoffs.

With that said, playoff odds have shifted across the board, and we have the updated numbers for you to see.

Check out every NFL team's future 2022 playoff odds heading into Week 3.

AFC playoff odds 2022

How the odds work is very simple: "Yes" means that they advance to the NFL Playoffs (as a division champion or a wild card), while "No" means they miss the postseason... so better luck next year.

Team Yes Odds No Odds
Tennessee Titans +125 -150
Kansas City Chiefs  -700 +500
Cincinnati Bengals  +140 -180
Buffalo Bills -5,000 +1,400
New England Patriots  +180 -225
Indianapolis Colts +110 -140
Los Angeles Chargers -225 +175
Las Vegas Raiders +230 -300
Pittsburgh Steelers +400 -600
Baltimore Ravens -225 +175
Miami Dolphins  -175 +140
Cleveland Browns  +150 -190
Denver Broncos  +120 -145
Jacksonville Jaguars +350 -425
New York Jets  +700 -1,400
Houston Texans  +1,400 -3,500

Odds courtesy of DraftKings as of September 20, 2022.

After Week 1, the Buffalo Bills improved their odds to make the playoffs to -5,000, with Kansas City second closest at -700. Both the Dolphins and the Denver Broncos increased their respective odds as well with wins over the weekend, but Cincinnati now finds itself at +140 after another heartbreaking loss. 

NFC playoff odds 2022

Like the AFC table, "Yes" means that they advance to the NFL Playoffs (as a division champion or a wild card), while "No" means their season ends after Week 18.

Team Yes Odds No Odds
Green Bay Packers -300 +230
Los Angeles Rams -250 +200
Tampa Bay Buccaneers -3,500 +1,000
Dallas Cowboys +130 -165
Arizona Cardinals +175 -250
Philadelphia Eagles -650 +425
San Francisco 49ers -190 +150
New Orleans Saints +135 -165
Minnesota Vikings  -300 +230
Atlanta Falcons  +1,400 -10,000
Washington Commanders +210 -280
Seattle Seahawks  +550 -900
New York Giants +110 -140
Carolina Panthers +550 -1,000
Chicago Bears  +500 -800
Detroit Lions +350 -475

Odds courtesy of DraftKings as of September 20, 2022.

After Week 2, Tampa Bay still remains the king of the NFC, improving its odds to -3,500. More surprisingly, it's the Philadelphia Eagles who have the second-highest odds at -600 after the smacking they laid on the Minnesota Vikings (-300). Unless some crazy results start to pop up, it looks like the odds board as of now gives a very good representation of who will be playing playoff football this winter.

NFL Playoffs 2022 Format

The NFL Playoffs expanded prior to the 2020 season and will run the same format in 2022, with 14 teams in the postseason — seven from each Conference.

In each conference, the division winners will comprise the Nos. 1-4 spots, while the Nos. 5-7 spots will come via wild cards. The top seed in both the AFC and the NFC will get a first-round bye, with the other matchups proceeding as follows:

  • No. 2 seed vs. No. 7 seed (lowest-ranked wild card)
  • No. 3 seed vs. No. 6 seed
  • No. 4 seed (lowest-ranked division winner) vs. No. 5 seed (highest-ranked wild card)

After the first round, the No. 1 seed will face the lowest remaining seed in their conference, while the other two teams will square off. Those winners will meet in the conference championship, and then the winners of those games — the AFC and NFC champions — will meet in Super Bowl LVI on February 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.
