Playoff turnover trend may not hold this year

In recent years, playoff teams have been bounced from the next year’s postseason field at a rate of 50 percent. Last year, precisely six of the 12 playoff teams from 2010 (three per conference) didn’t make it back in 2011.

This year could be the year in which the trend doesn’t hold.

MDS joined PFT Live on Monday to discuss/debate with yours truly the teams most likely to miss out on a return visit to the tournament from the dozen that made it in 2011: the Patriots, Ravens, Texans, Broncos, Steelers, Bengals, Packers, 49ers, Saints, Giants, Falcons, and Lions.
