Best Answer

Originally it was 8 total, 3 division winners from each league as well as 1 Wild Card winner for each league. The Wild Card winner is the team from each league that has the best record that did not win a division. However starting with the 2012 Playoffs, an additional Wild Card winner from both leagues will be added into the Playoffs so now a total of 10 teams can make the Playoffs.
