The NFL playoffs are almost upon us and the excitement is building as fans of all 32 teams hope to see their team advance to the Super Bowl. The playoffs consist of 17 teams, seven from the AFC and six from the NFC, and will begin on Jan. 14 with the Wild Card round. The top seed in each conference receives a bye and will not play until the Divisional round on Jan. 21.

During the playoffs, teams will compete in a single-elimination format, meaning that one loss will eliminate them from contention. This adds to the intensity and pressure of each game, as players and coaches must give everything they have in order to move on to the next round.

As always, the playoffs are expected to be highly competitive and unpredictable. Will the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams make it back to the big game? Or will a new team rise to the occasion and claim the championship?

Let’s take a look at the current NFL playoff picture.
