Every NFL team plays:-every team from their own division twice (1 home, 1 away). (6 games).-One game against every team from one of the divisons of their own conference on a rotating 3 year cycle. (4 games)-One game against every team one of the divsions of the other conference on a rotating 4 year cycle (4 games)-The other two games are based on how the team finsished in their division the previous year: The teams that finished in first place in their division the previous season will play the all the other same-conference teams that finished in first in their respective division the previous year, excluding the team they already played based on "playing every team from one of the divisions of their own conference on a rotating 3 year cycle" The teams that fisnished in second place the previous season play the other teams that fisnished in second place the previous season, third place vs third place, and 4th place vs 4th place. Please realize though, that teams do not play teams outside of their conference based on this 1st place vs 1st place, 2nd place vs second place, etc thing.

How do they determine who is in the NFL playoffs?

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.

How do they pick the teams you play other then in your division in the NFL?

Using the 2010 New York Giants schedule as an example ... 1) Since there are 4 teams in each division, there will 6 division games played. This leaves 10 games to schedule. * - So the Giants will play two games each against the Cowboys, Eagles, and Redskins, the other three teams in the NFC East. 2) 4 of those games are played against each team of another division within the conference. For example, the teams in the NFC East will alternate playing the teams in the NFC South, NFC North, and NFC West every three years. This leaves 6 games left to schedule. * - 2010 is the season the Giants are scheduled play the teams in the NFC North division as the Giants last played all the teams in the NFC North in the 2007 season. The Giants will play the Vikings, Bears, Lions, and Packers. If the NFL doesn't change the way they schedule games, the Giants will play all of the teams in the NFC North again in 2013. 3) 4 of those games are played against each team in a division of the other conference. For example, the teams in the NFC East will alternate playing the teams in the AFC East, AFC South, AFC North, and AFC West every four years. This leaves 2 games left to schedule. * - 2010 is the season the Giants are scheduled to play the AFC South as the Giants last played all the teams in the AFC South in the 2006 season. The Giants will play the Colts, Jaguars, Titans, and Texans. If the NFL doesn't change the way they schedule games, the Giants will play all of the teams in the AFC South again in 2014. 4) These 2 games are played against the other two teams in other divisions within the conference that finished in the same place, within the division, that the team finished. For example, the 2nd place team in the NFC East will play the 2nd place teams in the two divisions within the conference that they are not playing the entire division. If the NFC East is scheduled to play the NFC West in a season, these two games are scheduled against the same place teams in the NFC North and NFC South. * - Since the Giants finished in 3rd place in the NFC East in 2009 and they are scheduled to play the teams in the NFC North in 2010, they will play the 3rd place teams in the NFC South (Panthers) and NFC West (Seahawks). The way the NFL schedules games, 14 of the 16 regular season games are always known in advance. In 2011, the Giants will play 2 games against each team in the NFC East, 1 game against the each team in the NFC South since they last played that division in 2008, and 1 game against each team in the AFC East since they last played that division in 2007. The only two games that are unknown are the two games they play against the teams that finished in the same place within their division in the NFC North and NFC West.
