    NFL playoff #6 seeded teams.

    In the last 20 years of wildcard action, #6 seeded playoff teams have been winning SU at 45%....18-22

    That being said itís been 4 years since both #6 teams lost.

    Are we due for a goose egg?

    Some popular teams landed in that sweet spot this year.

    I really like the niners to cover. I wouldnít be surprised if the Niners won straight up.

    #6 seed is a little different now as only #1 seed gets a bye rather than #1 and #2 get the bye. Thus, now #6 v. #3 rather than before it was #6 v. #4. So based on seeding, it's harder for #6 to win the wildcard games.

    I donít see how you get a 4 seed versus 6 seed in any first round bracket whether its a total of 6 or 7 seeds. Seems like 4 would play 5 in most scenarios.

    In wild card round it is always 3 vs 6, however we now have a couple 2 vs 7 that potentially can steal some thunder away from the 6ís tremendous run.

    No problem Headsterx. You gave great information I just couldnít wrap my head around the 4 and 6 seeds playing each other. But I get that it all changes with one bye versus 2. I think the NFL goes back to 2 byes as soon as next season. Too many injuries/Covid this year to have a healthy playoff field. Plus the 7 seeds are probably not going to be competitive this year do might as well make sure the 2 seed is healthy for the anticipated matchup against number 1. 1 versus 2 championship games are normally very hyped versus a team sneaking in from the bottom.
