There are four divisions in each conference of the NFL and each division winner automatically qualifies for the playoffs. There are two other teams selected for the playoffs that did not win their division and these teams are known as 'wild card' teams. The wild card teams are the two teams in each conference that had the best regular season record of those teams that did not win their division.
There are two conferences in the NFL and each conference is broken into four divisions. Six teams from each conference make he playoffs. In each conference, the four division winners advance to the playoffs and the two teams that were not division winners that have the best regular season record, called wild cards, also advance to the playoffs. Six teams from the NFC and six teams from the AFC make the play-offs. There are three…

Each division contains 4 teams for a combined total of 32 teams. The NFL puts each team in certain divisions depending on where each team is located.

In 1960, the NFL had two conferences, the East and the West, and there were no divisions within either conference. The East conference had 6 teams and the West Conference had 7. In 1967, the NFL broke the two conferences into four divisions, the Capitol, Century, Coastal, and Central. Four teams were in each division. When the AFL-NFL merger occurred in 1970, each conference, American and National, had three divisions. Those were the East, Central…

Yes. In the NFL playoffs, teams play each other strictly by seed (3 plays 6 and 4 plays 5). Also, if the division winner was a 3 or 4 seed and the two wildcard teams came from that division, it would not be possible to keep teams from the same division from meeting in the wildcard round. This in different than the MLB playoffs where the wildcard team cannot play their division winner.
In the NFL playoffs why is it called Divisional Round when teams from same division can't play each other?
In 2002 the NFL realigned the league because of the addition of the Houston Texans. Prior to 2002, there were 31 teams in the NFL. With the addition of the Texans, there were now 32 teams. 16 teams in each conference, 4 teams per division, the NFL split up the league into the new order, trying to preserve as any regional and historical rivalries as possible.
1, 2, or 3. There are 6 playoff spots from each conference. The division champions each get a playoff berth, and two wild cards are given to the next two non-division champions with the best records. These two teams can be from the same division if the third place team in one division has a better record than all second place team from the other divisions.
Right now the NHL is structured into two conferences: an Eastern Conference and a Western Conference.

That answer is determined by how the teams in the NFC finish!!!!!!!!! They will play each team in their division (NFC South) once at home and once away - and then play the other teams from the NFC divisions - according to where they finished in their division races!!!!!!! SO first place teams play first place teams - and last place teams play last place teams - and so on!!!!
It is not possible to have four teams in the same division in the playoffs. The way the playoffs are structured, with each conference having 4 division winners and two wild card teams in the playoff mix, means that the maximum numbers of teams from any one division would be three. This has happened several times since the NFL went to its current playoff structure in 1992. The most recent is this year, 2013, when…
It depends on the division, in the AL east each of the five teams plays the other four in their division 18 times, for a total of 72 games. So in the AL east they play a total of 90 games outside their division. In divisions with only four teams, they play each other 20 times for a total of 60 in the division and 102 games out. When there are six teams in a…
No, the max would be 2. The way the NFL schedule is set up (2011), along with the 6 division games each team plays all four teams in a different division of their conference. That means, for example, that each team in the East plays each team in the West and each team in the North plays each team in the South. The next season, the East would play the North and the West would…

There are 16 teams in the National League and 14 in the American League. Both leagues are divided into three divisions. The National League has five teams each in the East and West Divisions and six teams in the Central Division. The American League has five teams each in the East and Central Divisions and four teams in the West Division. It seems to make more sense to move one of the National League team…
