For playoff purposes. The team in a conference with the best overall record is the No. 1. A playoff team with the weakest overall conference record is the No. 6 seed.
The two teams in each conference with the best record (excluding division champions) earn playoff berths as wildcard teams.
In MLB, in each league four teams make the playoffs ... the three division winners and the team that had the best record of all the other teams that did not win their division.
2009? Broncos Colts Giants Vikings Saints all have 4-0 record
In 1955 there was no playoff format. The winner (team with the best record) of the American League played the winner of the National League. The Brooklyn Dodgers beat the New York Yankees in the 1955 World Series.

There are four teams from each league that make the playoffs. There are three divisions in each league and each division winner is guaranteed a place in the playoffs. The fourth team that makes the playoffs in each league is the team that has the best overall season record of those teams that did not win their division. This team is called the 'wildcard' team.
The four divisions in each conference.6 teams from each conference makes the playoffs the four division winners get playoff spots.then the 2 best teams not including the division winners in the whole conference get wildcard spots.The 2 best teams in each conference get a week off in the playoffs and a automatic home game, while the overall best team in the conference gets all their games at home not including the Super Bowl. Unless the Super Bowl is in their stadium, which is possible to happen. Match-ups are based on records.Wild card Round: Team with 6th best VS Team with 3rd best record Team with 5th best VS team with 4th best record 1st best record and 2nd best record get week off. Divisional Round: Team with lowest record faces Team with best record, Team with 2nd best record faces the other. Championship: 2 Teams that win divisional round best record team gets Home Field Advantage if team without home field losses in the previous round, teams that win advance to the Super Bowl.
Besides the Super Bowl, all play-off locations are determined by the team seeding. At the end of the regular season, the two teams with the best records in their conference receive a 1st week bye. The team with the best record is guaranteed homefield advantage through out the play offs (should the win, of course). As the play-offs progress, when two teams are matched up, the team with the better overall regular season record almost always plays at home.
