The playoff seeds are ordered by the eight teams with the best winning percentage. When two or more teams have the same winning percentage:

  1. Preference is given to the team that has the better record in head-to-head matchups.
  2. Then to the team that is a division winner.
  3. Then to the team that has the better division record only when the other tied team(s) are in the same division.
  4. Then to the team that has the better conference record.
  5. Then to the team that has the better conference record against playoff teams.
  6. Then to the team that has the better record against playoff teams in the other conference.
  7. Then to the team that has the better point differential.
  8. If there is still a tie, the team that has the larger television market wins by way of random drawing.
