2020 NFL Playoff Bracket: The 2020 NFL Playoffs
14 will enter, one will leave.
Here’s where to find the 2020 NFL playoff bracket.
Let’s face it: the 2020 NFL season was a dicey proposition half a year ago. Nobody was quite sure when the pandemic would end, and in fact, as the postseason begins, we still don’t have an answer to that question. However, the NFL punched its way through 16-game schedules for each team, and there will be playoffs.
This magical journey through January ends at Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on February 7, 2021. We suspect there will be at least some fans at the game, but as for what teams will get there? That remains to be seen.
All teams have clinched their playoff berths, and in the 2020 NFL playoff bracket, we have for the first time a 14-team field. It was expanded this season to seven teams per conference. This means Wild Card Weekend will be bigger (from four total games to six), and only one team per conference gets a coveted bye.
In the postseason again are the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, but who is joining them?
2020 NFL Playoff Bracket
Format of the 2020 NFL Playoffs
Seven teams per conference qualify for the postseason, for a total of 14. Each conference has four division winners and three wild cards.
The top division winner in each conference receives a first-round bye. Seeds two through seven all play on Wild Card Weekend
The playoff bracket will reseed for the Divisional round as it has in past years. For example, should the number seven seed win its Wild Card game, they will play the number one seed as the lowest seed faces the highest.
