    Every season since 2002 (maybe further back but I only went back to when the Texans started) there have been 4 or more teams make the playoffs that didn't the previous year.

    Example - last season (2013) Philly, Carolina, Saints, KC and San Diego are the 5 teams that made the playoffs that weren't in the tourney in 2012. And with the exception of 2012 where 4 different teams made it that didn't in 2011, every season has been 5 or more different teams from the previous season.

    The 2013 playoff teams:
    NFC - Eagles, Packers, Panthers, Saints, Seahawks, 49ers
    AFC - Patriots, Bengals, Colts, Broncos, Chiefs, Chargers

    If the trend continues, what 4 or more teams make the playoffs this season that didn't last year, and what 4 or more teams do they replace?

    If I had a gun to my head I'd pick this four to be out:

    Chargers, Chiefs, Saints, Packers.

    Replacing them:

    Bills, Ravens, Falcons, Lions.
