NFL Playoffs

The National Football League playoffs are a single-elimination tournament held after the regular season to determine the NFL champion. Seven teams from each of the league's two conferences qualify for the playoffs based on regular-season records. A tie-breaking procedure exists if required. The tournament culminates in the Super Bowl: the league's championship game in which two teams, one from each conference, play each other to become world champion. NFL postseason history can be traced to the first NFL Championship Game in 1933, though in the early years, qualification for the game was based solely on regular season records. From 1933 to 1966, the NFL postseason generally only consisted of the NFL Championship Game, pitting the league's two division winners. After 1967, the playoffs were expanded to allow four teams to qualify for the tournament. When the league merged with the American Football League in 1970, the playoffs were expanded to eight teams.
