Playoff confusion...

Though I am a little embarassed to admit it, ever since the NFL re-aligned the divisions, I still get confused every year trying to figure out which teams will get the bye week and how many wild-card teams there will be for NFL Playoffs. You'd think I'd know it by now since the re-alignment was several years ago, but it just has not sunk into my thick head yet.

This weekend my friend and I were talking about playoff scenarios and I was asking, "So only 1 team gets the bye, and there's only one wildcard now, right? I still can't remember!"

"Ummmmm. I don't know... I can't remember either!"

What a couple of dumb-asses.

Here's a little cheat sheet for those of us who are NFL playoffs challenged. Now there is no need to suffer the embarrassment of NFL Playoffs confusion ever again.

This year, you will look really smart at all the holiday parties when some dumb-ass like me comes up to ask you what happens and who goes where once the NFL playoffs start. Chicks will be impressed and you may even get laid. Then again, if you're wasting your time here, maybe not, but good luck with that anyway!

There are 4 division winners (I knew that. I'm not that dumb) and 2 wild-card teams. The seeding for the 1st round is:

1. The division champion with the best record. (BYE)
2. The division champion with the second-best record. (BYE)
3. The division champion with the third-best record. (Hosts Wild Card #2)
4. The division champion with the fourth-best record. (Hosts Wild Card #1)

See? That's not so hard now, is it?
