How does the 2023 NFL playoff system work?

There will be four division winners and three wild card teams in each conference of the NFL. Eligible participants for each NFL playoffs don’t have a fixed role elimination system because there is no restriction between two teams in the particular division. There are seven teams who represent the AFC championship game.

Teams who have higher position will have the exclusiveness to be the host of their weaker competitors. But when the particular teams lose the particular match, they will get disqualified. The first seed will not have to join the first-round.

The second round is a bit the same as the first round. The first seed will choose the weaker team. The losing teams will need to leave the NFL immediately. The remaining two teams will meet in the 3rd round to compete for the NFL playoff championship.

The super bowl’s fourth round is going to happen at a neutral venue. The conference will pick the home team with the rotation methodology.
