Which Teams Are in the NFL Playoffs 2020? Updated Bracket and Super Bowl Chances Ahead of Championship Games

Four teams are left in the NFL playoffs after a divisional round that saw the team with the best regular season knocked off, a historic comeback and moved Aaron Rodgers a step closer to a second Super Bowl ring.

Baltimore's 12-game winning run came to an abrupt end as the Ravens' playoff debut coincided with their exit for the second consecutive season, following a 28-12 loss at home to the Tennessee Titans.

Having won on the road against the New England Patriots in the wild card round, the Titans moved within one game of their first Super Bowl appearance since 1999.

While the sixth seed in the AFC made it to the Championship Game there was no such joy for the bottom-ranked team in the NFC, as the Minnesota Vikings came unstuck against the San Francisco 49ers, losing 27-10 on Saturday.

In their first appearance in the NFC Championship Game since 2013, the 49ers will host the Green Bay Packers, who defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-23 on Sunday night to reach the conference decider for the third time in six years.

The Kansas City Chiefs complete the picture in the AFC, reaching the AFC Championship Game for the second consecutive season after a historic comeback against the Houston Texans. Trailing 24-0 early in the second half, the Chiefs scored 41 unanswered points on their way to a 51-31 win.


Kansas City Chiefs—No. 2 seed, 1-0 in playoffs

The Chiefs are the highest-seeded team left in the AFC, something not even the most optimistic of Kansas City fans would have envisaged early in the second half of Sunday's matchup against the Houston Texans.

Trailing by 21-0 after an error-laden first period, the Chiefs found themselves 24-0 down early in the second half, before rallying behind Patrick Mahomes.

The reigning MVP reminded everyone of his stature as he became only the second player to throw four touchdown passes in one quarter of a playoff game, matching the record set by former Washington Redskins quarterback Doug Williams in 1988.

Inspired by Mahomes, the Chiefs scored on seven consecutive drives, putting 41 unanswered points past the Texans on their way to a 51-31 win.

Kansas City will face the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship on Sunday and, according to FiveThirtyEight's statistical projections, its chances of making the Super Bowl stand at 69 percent—the highest of any of the four teams left in the playoffs.

Tennessee Titans—No. 6 seed, 2-0 in playoffs

In two playoff games, the Titans have knocked off the reigning Super Bowl champions—the New England Patriots—in the wild card round and the team that with the best regular season record this year—the Baltimore Ravens—in the divisional round.

The reward for Saturday's 28-10 road win in Baltimore is a trip to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in Tennessee's first AFC Championship Game since the 2002 season.

At 31 percent, the Titans have the smallest chance of making the Super Bowl out of any of the four teams remaining and as this graphic provided by Statista shows, they are the lowest-ranked team left in the playoffs.

However, a team that defeated the Patriots and the Ravens on the road in consecutive weeks can't be underestimated and Tennessee will go to Kansas City confident of pulling off another upset.

Having led the NFL in rushing yards during the regular season, Derrick Henry has put up 182 yards against the Patriots and 195 yards against the Ravens. Expect the Titans to turn to him again on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers—No. 1 seed, 1-0 in playoffs

San Francisco's first playoff appearance in six years couldn't have got off to a smoother start, as the 49ers rode their rock-solid defense to defeat the Minnesota Vikings 27-10 on home soil on Saturday afternoon.

Making his playoff debut, Jimmy Garoppolo threw a touchdown pass on his opening drive, before the 49ers defense took over, shutting down the Vikings in the second half as San Francisco scored 13 unanswered points.

The performance only strengthened the belief Kyle Shananan's team is a favorite for the title and FiveThirtyEight gives it a 64 percent chance of making the Super Bowl ahead of its NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers.

Green Bay Packers—No. 2 seed, 1-0 in playoffs

Last week Aaron Rodgers admitted that a second Super Bowl ring occupied his thoughts every day and the veteran quarterback moved a step closer to a second Lombardi Trophy on Sunday night.

After a largely unspectacular season by his lofty standards, Rodgers delivered a vintage performance as Green Bay defeated Seattle 28-23 at home to reach the NFC Championship Game for the third time in six years.

Leading 21-3 at halftime, the Packers held off a spirited second half comeback from the Seahawks and will now travel to San Francisco on Sunday to face the 49ers in the conference title game for the first time since the 1997 season.

According to FiveThirtyEight, Green Bay's chances of reaching the Super Bowl stand at 36 percent.
