The NFL Playoffs have officially started. The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers have the number one seeds in their respective conferences. The Browns shocked everybody after losing their quarterback for the season, and the Eagles are trying to win the Super Bowl after losing it last year. Here is everything you need to know about the 2024 NFL Playoffs.


Can 38 year old Joe Flacco lead the Brown to the Super Bowl?

After losing quarterback Deshaun Watson for the season, the Cleveland Browns signed free agent Joe Flacco as a prayer that he could save the season. Here we are now, and Flacco led the Browns to the number 5 seed in the NFL Playoffs. Can he take them to the Super Bowl?

Will Josh Allen finally win in the playoffs?

Josh Allen has led the Buffalo Bills to the playoffs every year since 2020. In 2020, they lost to the Houston Texans in the first round. In 2021, they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship. In 2022, they lost to the Chiefs again in an overtime thriller! In 2023, they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals. This year, as a Bills fan, I am praying that Josh Allen can lead us to the Lombardi Trophy.

Are the Lions contenders or pretenders?

The Detroit Lions have finally won their division and made the playoffs! This was their first time since 1993! They have had some embarrassing losses this season, including one loss to the Packers and one to the Bears. They have also had some inspiring moments this season, including huge wins versus the Broncos and Buccaneers. The question is if they can beat the powerhouses like the Cowboys, Eagles, or 49ers in the playoffs.



  1. San Francisco 49ers
  2. Dallas Cowboys
  3. Detroit Lions
  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  5. Philadelphia Eagles
  6. Los Angeles Rams
  7. Green Bay Packers


  1. Baltimore Ravens
  2. Buffalo Bills
  3. Kansas City Chiefs
  4. Houston Texans
  5. Cleveland Browns
  6. Miami Dolphins
  7. Pittsburgh Steelers


(Round 1)

The San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens do not have to play in this round and they will automatically advance to the next round because they both won their respective conferences.

Here are the games. For my predictions, if the team is in bold, I think that they will win. If the team is in italics, I think that they will lose.
