NFL Playoff Games
The National Football League (NFL) playoffs determine the eventual Super Bowl winner out of remaining 12 teams who have qualified for the competition. Each year, six teams from each of the two conferences (AFC and NFC) qualify for the playoffs in order to determine the champion.
Number of Games
The number of NFL playoff games varies depending on the year:
- Wild Card Round: The four division winners from each of the two conferences plus two wild card teams from each of the two conferences qualify for the Wild Card Round. This round features four games, two from each conference.
- Divisional Round: The two wild card teams from each conference and the two division winners with the best records from each conference qualify for the Divisional Round. This round features four games, two from each conference.
- Conference Championship: The two winners from the Divisional Round from each conference qualify for the Conference Championship. This round features two games.
- Super Bowl: The two winners from the Conference Championship round play in the Super Bowl. This is the final game of the NFL postseason.
In total, there are 11 NFL Playoff games in the 2020 season, with the Super Bowl being the 12th and final game. Although the number of games may vary from year to year, the overall structure of the playoffs remains the same.
