    2018 NFL RECORDS & MILESTONES
    ​For the complete 2018 NFL Records and Milestones, click here.
    New teams making the playoffs, terrific turnarounds, consistent teams excelling again, records falling and young players making their mark. The 2018 season had it all. 
    Competitiveness highlighted the 2018 regular-season as 73 games were decided by three points or fewer, the most in a season in NFL history while 68% of all games played this season (175 of 256) were within one score (eight points) in the fourth quarter, tied for the third-most in a season in NFL history. On 71 occasions, teams came back to win or tie after trailing in the fourth quarter or overtime – an average of 4.2 teams per week – tied for second-most in a season in NFL history. 
    Week 17 came down to the wire, as three playoff spots and three divisions titles – the AFC West, AFC North and AFC South – were decided on the final day of the season. Sunday’s excitement was due in part to having 16 divisional games played on the season’s final day, a tradition instituted in 2010. 
    Seven of the 12 playoff teams are new to the postseason in 2018: BALTIMORECHICAGODALLASHOUSTONINDIANAPOLIS, the LOS ANGELES CHARGERS and SEATTLESince 1990 – a streak of 29 consecutive seasons – at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before.

Las emociones del domingo se debieron en parte a tener 16 partidos divisionales disputados en la última jornada de la temporada, una tradición instituida en 2010. Tres pasaportes a la postemporada y tres títulos divisionales –los de la AFC Oeste, AFC Norte y AFC Sur– fueron decididos en el último día de competición regular de la temporada. 
    La lista de los 12 equipos finales es la siguiente:

    NEW YEAR, NEW TEAMS: The Chicago Bears (12-4, NFC North) and Houston Texans (11-5, AFC South) both completed “worst-to-first” turnarounds and at least one team has won its division the season after finishing in or tied for last place in 15 of the past 16 seasons. 2018 marked the second consecutive season that two teams went from worst to first – something that has never happened before in any other major US sport.

    Week 17 came right down to the wire. Sunday’s excitement was due in part to having 16 divisional games played on the season’s final day, a tradition instituted in 2010. Three playoff spots and three divisions titles – the AFC West, AFC North and AFC South – were decided on the final day of the season. 
    The final 12 teams are set: 
    AFC
    NFC

    The NFL playoffs, which conclude on February 3 with Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta (CBS, 6:30 PM ET), begin this Saturday and Sunday with Wild Card Weekend.

    With Chicago and Houston earning division titles, 2018 marked the second consecutive season that two teams went from worst to first (Jacksonville and Philadelphia in 2017) – something that has never happened in any other major US sport. 
    Seven of the 12 playoff teams are new to the postseason in 2018: BALTIMORECHICAGODALLASHOUSTONINDIANAPOLIS, the LOS ANGELES CHARGERS and SEATTLE. Since 1990 – a streak of 29 consecutive seasons – at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before.

    ARIZONA CARDINALS HOLD FIRST PICK IN 2019 NFL DRAFT
    The Arizona Cardinals own the No. 1 pick of the 2019 National Football League Draft, which will be held April 25-27 in Nashville, Tennessee.
    The tentative order of the first round was announced today by the NFL, subject to the results of the playoffs.
    The draft order is determined by the following procedures:
    (A)        The winner of the Super Bowl game shall select last and the loser of such game shall select next-to-last in all rounds, regardless of the record of such participating clubs in the regular season.
    (B)       The losers of the Conference Championship games shall select 29th and 30th in all rounds, according to the reverse order of their standing.
    (C)       The losers of the Divisional playoff games shall select in the 25th through 28th positions in all rounds, according to the reverse order of their standing.
    (D)       The losers of the Wild Card games shall select in the 21st through 24th positions in all rounds, according to the reverse order of their standing.
    (E)       Clubs not participating in the playoffs shall select in the first through 20th positions in all rounds, according to the reverse order of their standing.
    If, after all the foregoing procedures have been applied, ties still exist in any grouping except (A) above, such ties shall be broken by figuring the aggregate won-lost-tied percentage of each involved club’s regular season opponents and awarding preferential selection order to the club which faced the schedule of teams with the lowest aggregate won-lost-tied percentage.
    If ties still exist, the divisional or conference tie-breaking method, if applicable, shall be applied. If neither the divisional nor the conference tie-breaking methods are applicable, ties shall be broken by a coin flip.
    The tie between Buffalo and Denver for the 9th and 10th position was broken by conference tie-breakers. Since both clubs had the same conference record (4-8), their win-loss-tie percentages in common games is applied. Since both clubs had the same record in common games (1-4), their win-loss-tied percentage in strength of victory is applied.  Since Buffalo (.411) had a lower win-loss-tie percentage in strength of victory than Denver (.464), they are given priority in the Draft order.​​​
    Clubs involved in two-club ties will alternate positions from round-to-round.  In ties that involve three or more clubs, the club at the top of a tied segment in a given round will move to the bottom of the segment for the next round, while all other clubs in the segment move up one position.  This rotation continues throughout the Draft.

    2019 OPPONENTS DETERMINED​​
    The opponents for all 2019 regular-season games have been determined and a complete list of each team’s home and away matchups was issued today by the NFL.
    The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.
    Under the formula, every team plays 16 games as follows:​
    • Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).
    • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games) 
    • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games)
    • Two intraconference games based on the prior year’s standings (2 games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.  ​
      ​Beginning in 2010, a change was made to how​​​​ teams are paired in the schedule rotation with the AFC and NFC West divisions.
      The official 2019 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.

      NFL Kickoff 2019 Weekend will begin on Thursday night, September 5, and the regular season will conclude on Sunday, December 29.​
      The season will conclude with Super Bowl LIV in Miami on Sunday, February 2, 2020.
