I have a team that is 8-3 in my league, and a team that is 7-4 in my league. The team that is 8-3 is seeded 3rd, and the team that is 7-4 is seeded 2nd. They are in different divisions. Is this correct? Why would the team with the worse record be seeded higher?
I'm guessing the division winners are awarded the top seeds and the team that's 8-3 is behind another team within their division. Therefor, as the division leader in the other division, the 7-4 team receives the #2 seed.
I know it's complicated to understand as there has never been a situation in the NFL where a team with a better record was seeded below a division winner.
