    Am I doing this right?

    The Buffalo Bills have sucked for the last 17 years, so I just wanted to see how the numbers panned out

    if you assume they have a 50% chance to win every game over 16 games (or close to that avg'd out)

    using a binomial calculator and assuming 10 wins gets you into playoffs

    they have a 77.3% chance to miss the playoffs or get less than 10 wins every year

    over 17 years (trials) looking for one success at a 22.7% chance to make it (get to 10)

    there would be a 1.26% chance over seventeen years that they never got to 10, and of course they haven't lol

    can I use the binomial calculator like this?
