Seahawks with 36.2 percent chance of making the playoffs

The Seattle Seahawks saw their playoff chances rise to 36.2 percent with their win last week against the San Francisco 49ers, according to Football Outsiders.

They have a 23.1 percent chance to earn a wild-card berth and a 13.1 percent chance to win the NFC West. The Cardinals are overwhelming favorites to take the division at 72.4 percent.

Vegas is still bullish on the Seahawks' chances at a turnaround. According to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, they are 10 to 1 to win the Super Bowl. That's tied for third behind the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers, who are both 5 to 2. The Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals are also at 10 to 1.

In ESPN's Football Power Index, the Seahawks rank seventh overall. In Football Outsiders' DVOA rankings, they are sixth -- 15th on offense, eighth on defense and second on special teams. ESPN.com's power rankings have them ninth:

"The Seahawks are 3-4, but they get a Tony Romo-less Cowboys team in Dallas this week and then three straight home games. The season could turn around fast."

Some have asked about the Seahawks' schedule. They've lost to three undefeated teams -- the Packers, Bengals and Carolina Panthers. But overall, according to Football Outsiders, their schedule strength through seven weeks ranks 16th. Their remaining schedule strength ranks 18th, so not much of a difference.

As for Sunday's matchup, the Seahawks are the biggest road favorites of Week 6, favored by 6 or 6.5 points over the Cowboys, depending on the sportsbook.
