What are the NFL playoffs?
The NFL playoffs are a single-elimination tournament held after the end of the National Football League’s (NFL) regular season to determine the NFL champion. Six teams from each of the league’s two conferences qualify for the playoffs based on regular season records, and a seeding system is used to match up teams in the first round. Not all teams that qualify for the playoffs actually advance to play in them; for example, a team that loses its divisional playoff game automatically falls out of contention for the Super Bowl, even if it had a better overall record than some teams that won their conference championship games and advanced further in the playoffs.
The tournament consists of four rounds: Wild Card weekend (the first weekend, featuring only four games), Divisional playoffs (two games between division winners), Conference championships (two games played between the winners of each conference’s divisional playoff), and finally, the Super Bowl (the annual championship game played between the winners of each conference).
When is the Super Bowl?
The NFL regular season usually begins the week after Labor Day in early September and ends in late December or early January. The playoffs are held in January and February, with the Super Bowl taking place in February.
