I'm not predicting they will win 6 out of 7, I'm just saying they have a schedule that makes it a decent probability.
You do realize we've been blown out by 17 points or more 4 times this year, right? Does that sound like a great team that just happened to play a brutal schedule?
FO has our playoff chances at 6.2%, I don't consider that a "decent probability." They factor in strength of schedule too in their formulas. Conversely, they rate our chances of a top 3 pick in the draft significantly higher, at 14.9%
