Time for the annual NFL playoffs report card. I came up with this a few years ago and update it every year to graphically depict the timeline from the 1990 season to today. I chose 1990 because that was when Cincinnati won their last playoff game, representing the longest current playoff victory drought.

I added bars for a Super Bowl win or loss to make things more interesting. 22 teams in the NFL have at least made it to the Super Bowl since 1990.

Once again the Chiefs are not keeping good company on the left side of this graph.

I disagree. The graph below more closely resembles that. I added the number of playoff victories for each team during that time frame.

I originally chose not to post this one because it starts getting confusing when you add too many more colors and whatnot, I was trying to keep it as simple as possible while still representing the data in a relevant fashion.
