2013 Super Bowl Odds, Week 14: Wild-card teams emerge

So the playoffs are kind of boring this year, huh? Well, the playoffs themselves will be awesome -- the race for the playoffs is a little less exciting. Thankfully, a few teams decided to spice things up.

Namely, the Redskins, who are now 17-4 to win the NFC East and might just be the favorites if they beat the Ravens in Week 14. They also saw a huge surge in their Super Bowl odds this week, jumping all the way from 90-1 to 40-1. That's what happens when the possibility of hosting a first-round playoff game suddenly emerges out of nowhere.

Even if the 'Skins don't win the NFC East, they could still end up with a pretty good shot at a wild-card game, depending on what the Bears (down from 18-1 to 12-1) do down the stretch.

The Seahawks are making a push as well, moving from 50-1 to 33-1, despite the fact that they've got to deal with the regular-season suspension of Brandon Browner and possibly the postseason suspension of Richard Sherman.

The Cowboys (50-1) made a little jump after manhandling the Eagles and the Colts (50-1) and Bengals (50-1) each solidified their candidacy as wild-card options in the AFC.

After that, things really fall off a cliff. But the teams engaged in the wild-card race should at least make things exciting the rest of the way.
