The Rochester area only has 3 interstates besides the Thruway, if you can count that. So this is not going to be a very informative answer, because unless you're in Victor or Henrietta, this is what you get:

1. I-490
2. I-590
3. I-390
Is the Thruway an Interstate? I think so.

If you can count it as being in the Rochester area.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

I-44 is the closest, but the next two are much further away.

2. I-49 (west about 65 miles)

3. I-40 (south about 120 miles, I-70 is a close 4th)

I-80
I-280
I-580 / I-880, at the Macarthur Maze interchange. I-880 is closer as the crow flies as it curves around West Oakland.
Honorable mention: I-380, which is about a mile further than the Maze (but without the bridge crossing, seems like it's worlds closer).

I-81, I-690, I-481...for where I'm living right now, I suppose.

I-890, I-90, I-87...for where I've got a house.

Distances as the crow flies

1. I-84 (1.15 mi.)
2. I-691 (2.85 mi.)
3. I-91 (7.35 mi.)

If we’re talking only 2di’s, I-91 slides up to 2 and I-95 assumes the 3rd spot (~24 mi.)

A bit surprising to me which order these ended up in, but using straight-line distance:

I-5, I-210, I-405

I-30
I-369
I-49

49 is proposed to be closer than 369 in the future.   Then again, if the western belt gets built it might be closer than even I-30.
