Every year there are always some surprise teams that make the playoffs. It is just something that is unique to the NFL that the teams that had poor records the previous year are generally rewarded with an easier schedule than the teams that finished ahead of them in their divisions.

To fans of these teams, keep your chins up: Better days are ahead.
