NFL: who qualifies for the playoffs?
In the NFL regular season, 32 teams play for 14 playoff spots. The teams are divided into two conferences, the AFC and the NFC, and a total of eight divisions. Seven teams per conference qualify for the playoffs, which determines Super Bowl entrants in knockout mode in the wildcard round, divisional playoffs, and championship games.
How does NFL playoff mode work?
The two respective conference winners have a week off on the wild card weekend and only play in the divisional round. They also have home-court advantage in all rounds leading up to the Super Bowl.
During Wild Card Weekend, the second to seventh place teams compete against each other, with the highest placed team competing in their own stadium. Places two through four in the ranking list go to the three remaining division winners and are based on regular season record. Places five through seven go to the three teams that have the three best regular season records but did not finish first in their division. During the Wild Card weekend and in the divisional round, the higher-ranked team meets the lower-ranked team.
