Posting this link to remind everyone that, through the end of the season, we'll have an article on ESPN Insider each Tuesday taking an in-depth look at our latest playoff odds report. For each team with a reasonable chance of making the postseason (currently 21), we discuss detailed simulation results: things like win probabilities for specific upcoming games, the chance a subset of games will produce a specific group of results, etc. In this week's article, we cover the impact of Green Bay's tie, highlight a couple of potential trap games for NFC heavyweights, and give you the probability of San Francisco being tied atop the NFC West three weeks from now.
From here out, make sure to look for the link in Aaron's weekly DVOA ratings column.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
