NFL Playoffs UPDATED - If the season ended TODAY

Posted Tuesday, December 7, 2010, at 12:28 AM

I've just updated the bracket. The only real change is that New England jumped ahead of the Jets after they crushed them on Monday Night Football. Other than that, things pretty much stayed the same after last week.


Thanks to NFL.com, we can now see the playoff projections as they would stand after each remaining week of the season.

Below is a link to what the playoffs would look like if the season ended TODAY.


As you know, the top 2 seeds in each conference receive a bye into the divisional round and the other two divisional champions play home games against the wild card teams on "Wild Card Weekend."

The bracket shown might not play true because the NFL uses the "re-seeding" rule where the top remaining conference seed hosts the lowest surviving seed, while the other two remaining conference teams pair off.

There are five weeks left in the regular season, so remember that this could and probably will change nearly every week.

Thoughts on all the possible match-ups are welcomed as comments to this blog, but please remember to keep everything clean.

Enjoy and let the debating begin!
