The following is a list of American Football Conference (AFC) division winners.
Current structure[edit | edit source]
Since 2002, the AFC has been comprised of 16 teams, organized into four divisions each containing four teams: East, North, South, and West.
Each NFC team plays the other teams in their division twice (home and away) during the regular season, in addition to 10 other games assigned to their schedule by the NFL.
At the end of each season, a series of playoff games are contested among the top six teams in the AFC, consisting of the four division champions (by place standing) and the two other teams ("wild cards") with the best win-loss records. The AFC playoffs culminate in the AFC Championship Game for the Lamar Hunt Trophy. The AFC Champion plays the NFC Champion in the Super Bowl.
