      The Bills won the AFC East.
      The Browns clinched a playoff spot.
      The Washington Football Team won the NFC East with a sub-.500 record.

      And for the record, I recall the Seahawks won the NFC West about 7-8 years ago with a 7-9 record, which made several people upset. However, that was the year Marshawn Lynch broke out his Beast Mode run in the playoffs.

        People were more upset that Seattle was given a home game against a team (forget which now) that had a far superior record and didn't play in a pushover division.

          The Saints. I believe they were 11-5 that year (2010) and the defending Super Bowl champions.

          I forget who won the Super Bowl that season, but obviously given that a 7-9 team made the playoffs, any Super Bowl won that season should be heavily discounted and perhaps not even recognized. : - P

          ETA: Carolina won their division in 2014 with a losing record (7-8-1). They also won a home playoff game against Arizona (11-5 that season) before getting beat by Seattle in the Divisional Round. Two other losing teams have made the playoffs, both in the strike-shortened season in 1982 (which also featured 8 teams from each conference making the playoffs): Cleveland and Detroit, who were both 4-5 and lost in the first round.

              The Saints can be bent over hard for eternity and I will cherish every moment.

                  I've always wondered how many other teams have done that. CERTAINLY Madden's Raiders.

                  • I'd be in favor of keeping the autobid for the divisions, but getting rid of the home game.

                    NFC:
                    7. Football Team (7-9) at 2. Saints (12-4)
                    6. Bears (8-8) at 3. Seahawks (12-4)
                    5. Rams (10-6) at 4. Buccaneers (11-5)
                    Bye: 1. Packers (13-3)

                    AFC:
                    7. Colts (11-5) at 2. Bills (13-3)
                    6. Browns (11-5) at 3. Steelers (12-4)
                    5. Ravens (11-5) at 4. Titans (11-5)
                    Bye: 1. Chiefs (14-2)

                    I'm just going to keep the Titans at 4 because I don't feel like solving a four-way tie, so the AFC stays the same, but the NFC bracket looks better.

                    • I had never heard of Josh Allen before today.

                      Does that make me a casual fan or is he genuinely obscure?

                        That's probably the best compromise. Give the division winners auto bids but seed the field straight by record.

                            I would pay a considerable amount of money, certainly triple figures, for a World Cup-like phalanx of kids wearing both teams' jerseys to go to the 50 for the coin toss and all take a knee.

                              I'd like them to replace the Bears coaching staff with Patrick from Spongebob and see how long it takes anyone to notice.

                                Let us pause to remember, before the Aesthetic Infant Turn of the late 80s, this team used to have some of the finest unis in football:
