Figuring out which teams win the division or wild cards in the NFL can be a complex topic. It could come down to several different situations when teams have an equal number of wins and losses: 1. Head to head 2. The best won lost tied percentage in games played in the division they’re in. 3. Best won lost tied percentage in the games played in the conference. 4. Strength of victory which is the combined won lost tied percentage of every team the club as beaten. 5. Strength of schedule which means the combined won lost tied percentage of every team the club had to play against throughout their season.
Then down the line it starts getting towards the PF tie breaker. Tons of people still ask “what does pf mean in nfl standings?” It is simple; it stands for “Points For”. This mean the accumulated points for the season.
