The 2024 NFL Playoff Bracket shows possible scenarios or predictions for the postseason picture.

It took decades for a 16-seed to win a March Madness game, and it still hasn’t happened for a 7-seed to move on in the NFL playoffs. All-time, the seven-seeds are 0-6 and have lost by an average of 12.2 points.

That being said, it may make sense for your 2024 NFL playoff bowl picks to favor No. 2 seeds over No. 7 seeds. But what about the remainder of your predictions?

The NFL Super Wild Card Weekend 2024 doesn’t have a lot of other simple NFL matchups to choose from, like the games between the 4th and 5th seeds, where the division winners had more severe records than the Wild Cards going to those games.

The Texans, ranked No. 4, will face the Browns, while the Buccaneers, also ranked No. 4, will take on the Eagles. The Texans or Buccaneers both lost in the regular season, so both of these games are repeats. Houston has a home-field edge.

You might use earlier games to help you make NFL predictions, but what else should you think about when choosing teams for the NFL playoff bracket? Check out what SportsLine’s powerful computer model says before you make any NFL picks or 2024 NFL bracket predictions.

The model has been right about the best NFL picks for over seven thousand games and has made more than $7,000 over $100 players since it started.

When it comes to top NFL picks since the 2017 season, the model has an amazing 183-129 run going into the 2024 playoffs.

Also, it has made 37 out of 21 top-rated decisions since Week 7 of the previous year and has made seven straight highly regarded picks going into the 2024 NFL playoffs.

In the last six years, the model has been in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four times for straight-up NFL picks and beat over ninety-five percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em users five times during that time. Anyone who has kept up with it is way up.

The model made some shocking guesses about the NFL final draw, such as: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3) are getting a lot of attention, even though they just barely made it into the NFL playoffs.

At this point in the season, momentum is important, and since the beginning of December, no team has won more games than Tampa.

For the last six games, the Buccaneers have given up only 16.3 points, which is the second-fewest within the league.

During that time, Philadelphia, their Wild Card opponent, has given up the second-most points (30.3).

Not only does Tampa Bay usually win the turnover fight, but its turnover differential of +8 is the third best in the NFC playoffs, behind only Dallas (plus-10) as well as San Francisco (5-10).

The turnover difference is the best way to tell if a team is winning or losing, so the fact that the Buccaneers are almost as good as teams like the Cowboys and 49ers shows how good they can be as a playoff team.

In the playoffs, Baker Mayfield is sporting a 4:1 TD:INT ratio, even though he has only played on the road, so the Buccaneers’ chances of moving on in the 2024 NFL playoffs are even better now that they are playing the Eagles at home.

Today is the last day of the 2017 NFL regular season. All eight spots for the playoff games have already been claimed.

The Buccaneers from Tampa Bay beat the Carolina Panthers 9-0 and won the NFC South. They didn’t have to do much, but they did enough.

Because the Jacksonville Jaguars lost unexpectedly, the Pittsburgh Steelers made sure they would be in the playoffs. They will be grateful to the Tennessee Titans for that.

With the loss, the Houston Texans will finish first in the AFC South. They won their last game 23–17 against the Indianapolis Colts to clinch a spot in the playoffs.

Even though the NFL playoffs are almost here, Week 18 of the regular season still has some playoff spots and seeds up for grabs.

With how they play in the games on Saturday and Sunday, which teams are going to capitalize on the moment and make the playoffs?

Based on our NFL Week 18 game picks as well as predictions for the 16 games this week, we’ve figured out the NFC playoff pool and field. After some big wins in NFL Week 18, one surprise team has made it into the NFC field.
