Which team makes the playoff The team with the best overall record or the team with the best division record?

It depends upon the league/sport. In the NFL, for example, the team with the best overall record wins their division. In the event of a tie, the division record acts as the tiebreaker. I believe the best conference record wins the conference in NCAA Football, regardless of overall record. Then there are the league like the NHL, where a team earns 2 points for a win, 1 for a tie or post regulation loss--with the team accumulating the most points winning their division/conference.

Does winning all your division games in the NFL make you first in that division?

No. It is only the overall record that matters when it comes to Division Championships. A team could conceivably win every divisional matchup, yet lose every other game for a record of 6-10, while another team in the same division could lose every divisional matchup, but win every other game for a record of 10-6 and head to the playoffs as the Division Champions (if the other two teams' records were 9-5 or worse). The division games do matter in the case of a tie for the best record in the division, as the head to head record is the first tiebreaker for entry to the playoffs and seeding.
