2014 Season In Review


Many close games and great comeback victories…new teams making the playoffs and winning divisions…consistent teams excelling once again…records falling…young players making their mark…and so much more.

The 2014 season really did have it all, including a fantastic finish.

Week 17 came right down to the wire as 10 of the 16 games scheduled for the final day of the regular season had playoff implications. Sunday’s excitement was due in part to having 16 divisional games played on the season’s final day, a tradition instituted in 2010.

Each of the 12 teams still in Super Bowl XLIX contention can look back at the wild ride that was the 2014 regular season and appreciate how challenging the road to the playoffs was.

Since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs that were not in the postseason the year before. Five teams – Dallas (12-4), Arizona (11-5), Detroit (11-5), Pittsburgh (11-5) and Baltimore (10-6) – accomplished the feat this year.
