Best Answer

The top teams in each of the eight divisions will automatically make the playoffs. Then there are two wildcard teams that make the playoffs from each conference (NFC & AFC). These two wildcard teams in each conference make the playoffs based off of who has the best record other than the four that have already won their division. If two teams have the same record, then they look at the head to head games, and then their point differential.

Recap:

8 teams who win their conferences, 4 in each conference (NFC, AFC), automatically make it (AFC West, AFC East, AFC North, AFC South, NFC West, NFC East, NFC North, NFC South)

4 teams, 2 in each conference (NFC, AFC), who have the best records other than the teams in the conference who have already won their division.
