Best Answer

The reason why the Patriots did not make the playoffs is because at least 1 team from each division goes into the playoffs; the one who wins the division always goes. The patriots went 11-5, and the Ravens went 11-5 (neither won their division) but the Ravens had a better division record, therefore they get the priority spot over the patriots.
