Best Answer

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.
