NFLHC Wild Card Tiebreakers

If it is necessary to break ties to determine the two wild card clubs from each conference, the following steps will be taken:

  • If the tied clubs are from the same division, apply the division tiebreaker.
  • If the tied clubs are from different divisions, apply the following steps:

Two Clubs

  • Head-to-head, if applicable
  • Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference
  • Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four
  • Strength of victory
  • Strength of schedule
  • Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed
  • Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed
  • Best net points in conference games
  • Best net points in all games
  • Best net touchdowns in all games
  • Coin toss

Three or More Clubs

(Note: If two clubs remain tied after a third club or other clubs are eliminated, the tiebreaker reverts to step 1 of the applicable two-club format.)

  • Apply the division tiebreaker to eliminate all but the highest-ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2. The original seeding within a division upon application of the division tiebreaker remains the same for all subsequent applications of the procedure that are necessary to identify the two wild card participants.
  • Head-to-head sweep (applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others)
  • Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference
  • Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four
  • Strength of victory
  • Strength of schedule
  • Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed
  • Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed
  • Best net points in conference games
  • Best net points in all games
  • Best net touchdowns in all games
  • Coin toss

When the first wild card team has been identified, the procedure is repeated to name the second wild card (i.e., eliminate all but the highest-ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2). In situations where three or more teams from the same division are involved in the procedure, the original seeding of the teams remains the same for subsequent applications of the tiebreaker if the top-ranked team in that division qualifies for a wild card berth.

Postseason

Playoff seeds

Within each conference, the four division winners and the two wild card teams (the top two non-division winners with the best overall regular season records) qualified for the playoffs. The four division winners are seeded 1 through 4 based on their overall won-lost-tied record, and the wild card teams are seeded 5 and 6. The NFL does not use a fixed bracket playoff system, and there are no restrictions regarding teams from the same division matching up in any round. In the first round, dubbed the wild-card playoffs or wild-card weekend, the third-seeded division winner hosts the sixth seed wild card, and the fourth seed hosts the fifth. The 1 and 2 seeds from each conference then receive a bye in the first round. In the second round, the divisional playoffs, the number 1 seed hosts the worst surviving seed from the first round (seed 4, 5 or 6), while the number 2 seed will play the other team (seed 3, 4 or 5). The two surviving teams from each conference's divisional playoff games then meet in the respective AFC and NFC Conference Championship games, hosted by the higher seed. Although the Super Bowl, the fourth and final round of the playoffs, is played at a neutral site, the designated home team is based on an annual rotation by conference.
