With 5 weeks remaining in the NFL, including this one that has just started, the first qualifying teams for the playoffs are beginning to take shape.

When are the 2023-2024 Playoffs and the 2024 Super Bowl played?

  • Wild Card Round begins January 13-15, 2024
  • The Divisional Round takes place on January 20 and 21, 2024
  • The Conference Championships are played on January 28, 2024
  • The Super Bowl is played on February 11, 2024

Which teams have qualified for the 2023-2024 NFL Playoffs so far?

Until now, no team has managed to secure its qualification for the NFL Playoffs, but one is already eliminated: the Carolina Panthers.

The teams with the best record in each Conference advance directly to the Divisional Round; in the American League, they would be the Miami Dolphins, and in the National League, the Philadelphia Eagles.

In the Wild Card Round, the 2nd vs. 7th, the 3rd vs. 6th, and the 4th vs. 5th of each Conference face each other.

  • By losing at the start of Week 14 against the New England Patriots, the Steelers are in 8th place in the AFC, so they would momentarily be out of the postseason.

Currently, these are the NFL teams that would make it to the postseason

1 - Miami Dolphins (9-3)
First seed in the American League | AFC East
1 - Philadelphia Eagles (10-2)
First seed in the
National League | NFC East
2 - Baltimore Ravens (9-3) | Leader AFC North2 - San Francisco 49ers (9-3) | Leader NFC West
