If a team clinches a playoff berth but not division, they will get either the 5 or 6 seed in the playoffs.

What win percentage does a baseball team need to make the playoffs?

As far as MLB is concerned, winning percentage doesn't really enter in to whether a team makes the playoffs or not. A team makes the playoffs by winning their division or being the team with the highest winning percentage of those other teams that did not win their division. There have been teams to make the playoffs with a record as 'poor' as 83-78, as did the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals who went on to win the World Series. There have been teams with records as good as 94-68 (1982 Baltimore Orioles) that did not make the playoffs. That goes to show that a team with a winning percentage of just over .500 can make the playoffs where a team with a winning percentage of .580 can miss the playoffs.


Why didnt the patriots make the playoffs in 09?

The reason why the Patriots did not make the playoffs is because at least 1 team from each division goes into the playoffs; the one who wins the division always goes. The patriots went 11-5, and the Ravens went 11-5 (neither won their division) but the Ravens had a better division record, therefore they get the priority spot over the patriots.


Can NFL team have a losing record and make the playoff?

Yes. Six teams from each conference make the playoffs, the four division winners and the two teams with the best won/loss record that did not win their division. If a division winner's record is less than .500 they still make the playoffs. If the record of one of the two teams with the best record that did not win their division is less than .500, they still make the playoffs. Only three teams with losing records have ever made the NFL playoffs: The Browns and Lions both entered the 1982 playoffs with 4-5 records. (The season was shortened by a players' strike.) In 2010 the Seattle Seahawks won the NFC West with a 7-9 record, becoming the first NFL team to make the playoffs with a losing record in a full season.
