How does the 2024 NFL playoff system work?

The 2024 NFL playoff system is designed to be exciting and competitive, ensuring that the best teams make it to the postseason. Under this system, a total of 14 teams qualify for the playoffs, with seven from each conference (AFC and NFC).

These include the four division winners in each conference and three wild card teams with the best records outside of the division winners. The team with the top record in each conference earns a first-round bye, advancing directly to the Divisional Round.

The remaining teams face off in the Wild Card Round, with the lowest-seeded wild card team playing the division winner with the best record, and so on. The playoffs culminate in the Conference Championships, followed by the Super Bowl, where the AFC and NFC champions face off for the ultimate NFL glory.

This system not only rewards regular-season performance but also adds an element of unpredictability and excitement to the postseason.
