THE QUESTION

Second half chokers

Halfway through the 2009 season, which current division leader, if any, won't make the playoffs?

FROM THE PANEL

Playoff Picks

With Pittsburgh and Baltimore in their division, the Bengals' luck is the most likely of the current division leaders to run out.

10,001 simulations and guess who's out

The Cardinals are the current division leader least likely to make the playoffs.

The bad luck Bengals

If franchises are somewhat branded by an identity, then the Bengals' is of a team perennially beset by misfortune and miscalculation.

Don't count on Cards

The only team currently leading their division played in last season's Super Bowl and, coincidentally, is the only team that won't play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Not in the Cards

The one division leader that I don't see making the playoffs is the 4-3 Arizona Cardinals.

Which leader isn't playoff bound?

Vote now on the current division leader that will be out of the picture come playoff time.
