It's early yet, but with the Raiders at 2-3 coming out of the bye week, numberFire.com has run the numbers and come out with their chances for each NFL team to either make the playoffs or get the number one overall pick. First, the playoff chances, where the Raiders have among the slimmest chances.

To be exact, they have a 1.4% chance at the playoffs, which is the fifth lowest in the league. Here is the bottom ten:

Chicago Bears 0.2
Baltimore Ravens 0.4
Detroit Lions 0.6
Cleveland Browns 1.0
Oakland Raiders 1.4
Kansas City Chiefs 1.5
San Francisco 49ers 1.9
Jacksonville Jaguars 2.3
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3.9
Miami Dolphins 9.3

Not that many people were thinking the Raiders would make a serious run at the playoffs this season anyway.

Then there's their chances at getting the number one overall pick, which is higher than the playoff chances, but somewhat low in the bigger picture at 5%. In this case, the Raiders land at the 7th highest chances. Here are the 'top' ten:

Jacksonville Jaguars 27.56
Chicago Bears 16.88
Baltimore Ravens 9.70
Detroit Lions 9.38
Kansas City Chiefs 6.20
Tennessee Titans 5.94
Oakland Raiders 5.00
Cleveland Browns 4.62
San Francisco 49ers 4.46
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3.82
