The 2017-18 NFL playoffs have progressed to the second round. Division playoff weekend is arguably the best of any NFL season.
The four best teams of the season are all playing.
At the same time NFL fans are treated to a four-game weekend, unlike the rest of the playoffs. And as opposed to this last weekend, we get to watch all of the best teams.
In what may be an unprecedented occurrence, the number six wild card team is a road favorite over the number one seed this post season.
The 2017 NFL regular season wraps up on Sunday afternoon. There is not as much drama this year compared to the week 17 of many previous seasons. The 2017 NFL playoff picture is relatively settled. In the AFC there are four teams battling for two wild card spots. The NFC still has one division title up for grabs, but has just two teams competing for one final playoff slot.
Sunday’s American Football Conference Championship Game pits the two teams that have ruled the AFC this millennium. Including next month’s game in Houston, either the Steelers or Patriots will have represented the AFC in the Super Bowl ten times since 2001.
