What am I missing?

The Packers are at #27 and the Vikings at #23. I thought the final regular season standings set the draft order for all but two teams in the SuperBowl?

Did they change that rule?

Its been set by record within playoff loss round for as long as i can remeber, though which isnt that long tbh.

NFL Blitz has better referees.

Seems like 3-4 years ago, the Packers had a good record, but lost the first round of the playoffs. And were still drafting one or two spots in front of the SB teams (which by this year's rules it would've been 5 spots before at a minimum).

You are probably thinking about the 2012 draft where we draft where we picked 28th after going 15-1 and losing in the division series to the Giants. Othwise over the past 10 years, besides the super bowl year and last year, the highest we picked was the next year where we had the 3 seed, won in the first round then lost to the niners and picked 26th.

Probably. I dug back, but nothing really matched the memory. The first round bye and loss to the Giants might be what I was thinking

This change took effect in 2010.
