How the Teams Stack Up
For those who are new to the sport, the NFL consists of 2 separate conferences made up of 16 teams each. These include the NFC conference and the AFC conference. After a 4-week preseason and a 17-week regular season, the top 2 teams in each conference automatically qualify for the post-season finals. The top six teams in each division compete in a 12-team elimination round.
The road to the finals began with Wild Card Weekend, where Tennessee defeated Kansas City and Atlanta defeated the Los Angeles Rams on the 6th of Jan. On the Sunday, Jacksonville pulled one over Buffalo while New Orleans defeated Carolina.
Next up was divisional weekend where the Philadelphia Eagles continued their winning ways with a narrow win over Atlanta, while the Patriots crushed Tennessee. On the Sunday, Jacksonville narrowly defeated Pittsburgh while Minnesota squeezed past New Orleans.
Championship Sunday on the 21st of Jan saw Jacksonville take on the New England Patriots, while Minnesota took on the Philadelphia Eagles. The winners of these 2 games, the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles are now set to vie for the 2018 title.
