There are four divisions in each of the two conferences in the NFL. The eight division winners make the playoffs and the teams with the two best records in each conference that did not win their division make the playoffs as 'wildcards'.

No. Prior to 1969, there were no division in either league. Whichever team in each league had the best regular season record was the league's representative in the World Series. So, prior to 1969, only one team from each league made the playoffs and the only playoff round was the World Series. Starting in 1969, each league divided its teams into two divisions, the East and the West. The winners of the divisions would play each other in a playoff series (American/National League Championship Series) and the winner of that series would be the league's representative in the World Series. Two teams made the playoffs from each league and there were two rounds in the playoffs. Starting in 1994, each league was divided into three divisions, the East, Central, and West. The winners of each division would make the playoffs along with the one non division winner that had the best overall regular season record from each league. Four teams make the playoffs from each league. This is currently how the playoffs are done in MLB. There are three rounds in the playoffs, the American/National League Divisional Series, American/National League Championship Series, and the World Series.
The last season both the Red Sox and Yankees did not make the playoffs was 1993. Since MLB went to 3 divisions in each league in 1995, one or both teams have made the playoffs every season.
Eight. Four teams make the playoffs in each league. There are three divisions in each league and the three teams that wind up in first place in their division make the playoffs. The fourth team to make the playoffs is the team that did not win their division but has the best overall record of all the teams that did not win their division. That team is called the "wildcard" team.
I am assuming you are referring to the National Football League playoffs. There are four divisions within each conference. The team that wins its division is in the playoffs automatically. Of the remaining teams in each conference, the two with the best records are also in the playoffs as wild card teams. (There are various tiebreaker rules.) Of the division winning teams, the two teams with the best records in each conference get a bye, and the remaining two division leaders each play a wild card team in the first round of playoffs.
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 division winners and three wildcard teams from each conference.
MLB split into eastern and western divisions in each league in 1969. In 1994, each league added a central division and added a wild card team (second place team that had the best record) to make the playoffs three series including the World Series.

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 8 teams in each conference that go to the playoffs. They are put in seeds based on their record in the regular season. The 1 seed and the 8 seed go against each other, the 2 seed and the 7 seed go against each other and so forth. It is a best of 7 series. After the first round the winner of the 1/8 games and the 4/5 games go against each other. And it is a normal bracket from there.
The Pennant is when a team wins in their league, and goes on to play in the World Series. Years ago there were no divisions in each league, and the team with the best record, and finished first won the pennant. Now there are three divisions in each league. The Playoffs refer to the games played among the three division winners, and a wild card team (best record of a second place team) to decide who will be the pennant winner, and go on to play in the World Series.
Each league is divided into three divisions. At the end of the season, the best team in each division AND the best team left after those three are taken out (the wild card) will go to the playoffs. It is just a bracket system from then on.
The winner from each division makes the playoffs. The 2 best teams in the conference who didn't wil their division will also be in the playoffs.
The NBA has a total of four rounds (quarterfinal, semifinal, conference final, THE finals) in the playoffs, for each conference (East and West). That means a total of 16 teams (8 in each conference) will be determined by their regular season records to participate in the playoffs. Well after the quarter final and semifinal rounds in the playoffs. 2 teams in each conference play against each other in the conference final or 3rd; the first team to get 4 victories gets to play in the championship round ( 1 team from each conference plays against each other) and the similar guidlines apply to determine the Championship winner.
There are 82 games in the regular season. The two conferences, Eastern and Western, determine ultimately who will play in the Finals. During the regular season, each team plays the majority of their games against their own conference with a large fraction being against teams in their own division. There are three divisions per conference. At the end of the regular season, the top 8 teams from each conference get into the playoffs, and will play the other teams in the conference to make it to the Finals against the opposite conference's top team.
