Notes

  • During the regular season, the seeds reflect how the playoffs would stand if the season ended up to that point.
  • The NFL playoffs are not based on a pure bracket system. In the divisional playoffs, the No. 1 seed is assured of playing the lowest-seeded Wild Card survivor.
  • There are no restrictions on intra-division games and the higher seed of any matchup will have home-field advantage.
