NFL projected records after week 5

The projected playoff picture again stays pretty consistent week to week.  See the full list of projections here.  And new, see a summary of the projected playoff teams by week.

As can be seen from the summary, the only changes to the projected playoff teams are Tennessee out and Cincinnati in in the AFC, and Dallas and Washington swapping spots in the division/wildcard.

In the AFC Pittsburgh is projected to be 10-6 which would tie Cincinnati, but the Bengals have a better chance to be 10-6 as well as 11-5 so they get the nod.  Tennessee is close behind at 9-7.

In the NFC the playoff teams seem clear, with Washington the last team in at 10-6 and closest rival being Chicago at 8-8 and then Tampa Bay and Seattle at 7-9.  Will there be no drama in the NFC this year?
