In the simplest terms, the club with the better regular season record (their win-loss percentage) receives home field advantage (I want to say this has been the case since 1975). Which means that a wild-card team will never play at home in the first or second round of the playoffs because they alway…s face a higher ranked team. For that matter, it is unlikely they will host any playoff game, unless the fifth and sixth seeded teams (the two wild-card teams) were to end up playing each other for the conference championship. Here is a lot more information from NFL.com dealing with tiebreakers (used to determine home field at the end of the season). It might look a little overwhelming, but most of the rules are never needed (as you'll read, technically a coin toss could decide venue, but that's pretty unlikely). Enjoy. http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakers Well, its not the team with the better record that plays at home on wildcard weekend, but the team that won their division. A #4 seed will have home field advantage over a wildcard 5 seed, even if the 5 seed had a better record, as happened in the wildcard game between the patriots and jaguars during wildcard weekend 2006, for the 2005 season. The term "wild card round" is somewhat of a misnomer. In the first round of the playoffs, there are two divisional champions and two wild card teams. The highest-seeded division champion hosts the lowest-seeded wild card team, and the other division winner hosts the other wild card team. The winners of these games go on to play two more division winners -- the top two seeds in each conference, who earned a "bye" and got to skip to the second round of the playoffs. Once again, the highest seeded division winner plays the lowest remaining seed. ( Full Answer )

As of week 13 of the 2009 NFL season, Jeff Feagles of the New York Giants has the most consecutive games played with 348 (New England, 1988-89; Philadelphia, 1990-93, Arizona, 1994-97; Seattle, 1998-2002; N.Y. Giants, 2003-present). This is an active streak. There has been contention about this re…cord since Feagles claimed the record from Minnesota Vikings tackle Jim Marshall in 2005. Marshall's record was 282 which now stands as a record for his position, and a third place spot on the all-time list. Brett Farve's active streak of 285 consecutive games is second on the list. The basis of the argument is whether a kicker's service was worthy of an "Iron-Man" title because they are specialists. The argument is that because they see little time on the field it's not as impressive as those who play positions. The opposing argument is that kickers and punters are the most replaceable on the team, not only removed after bad seasons, but after a bad game. Therefore to have so many consecutive games points to the talent of a player in a position that is at the bottom of importance on most teams. Proponents of the latter point to the fact that Feagles is the only kicker/punter on the consecutive list, whereas most games played is heavily populated by kickers/punters. ( Full Answer )
