The tournament brackets are made up of six teams from each of the league's two conferences, the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC).
The four division champions from each conference (the team in each division with the best regular season won-lost-tied record) are seeded 1 through 4 based on their regular season won-lost-tied record. Two wild card qualifiers (non-division champions with the conference's best won-lost-tied percentages) are seeded 5 and 6.
The 3- and the 6-seeded teams, and the 4 and the 5 seeds, face each other during the first round of the playoffs, dubbed the Wild Card Playoffs.
The 1 and the 2 seeds from each conference receive a bye in the first round, which entitles these teams to automatically advance to the second round, the Divisional Playoff games, to face the Wild Card survivors.
In any given playoff round, the highest surviving seed always plays the lowest surviving seed. And in any given playoff game, whoever has the higher seed gets the home field advantage (i.e. the game is held at the higher seed's home field).
The two surviving teams from the Divisional Playoffs meet in Conference Championship games, with the winners of those contests going on to face one another in the Super Bowl.
If teams are tied (having the same regular season won-lost-tied record), the playoff seeding is determined by a set of tie-breaking rules.
In the past you couldn't start figuring out the NFL playoff picture until Week 10. Two rules always factored into the process:
Rule No. 1: Teams can't clinch a playoff spot in the first two months, but they can definitely lose one. Make sure you find those one or two teams who have already damaged their playoff chances.
Rule No. 2: Since it's always better to peak in January instead of November, it's always better to project ahead instead of judging what already happened.
