The NFL playoff is here marking an end to the 2014-15 regular season. This Super Bowl will be the 49th Super Bowl in history of the NFL, according to NFL.com. The very first Super Bowl was a game between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Packers defeated the Chiefs 35-10.

This playoff, the New England Patriots have the AFC first seed and Seattle Seahawks have the NFC first seed, reported to cbssports.com. The first seed means they have first place so they get a bye, or do not have to play in the first round, and they get home field advantage for every game until the Super Bowl.

The Divisional winners this year are Dallas, Green Bay, Seattle, and Carolina for the NFC, according to espn.go.com. For the AFC the winners are New England, Denver, Indianapolis, and Pittsburg, reported espn.go.com. The teams with a bye this year are the Seattle Seahawks, the Green Bay Packers, the Denver Broncos, and the New England Patriots because they are they first and second seeds in the AFC and NFC.

The Wild Card teams are teams that did not win their division, but they did good enough to make the playoffs anyway. There are two wild card teams for the AFC and NFC. One of these teams is the Baltimore Ravens, who won the Super Bowl in 2012, stated baltimoreravens.com. The other three Wild Card teams are the Cincinnati Bangles of the AFC, and the Arizona Cardinals, and Detroit Lions.
