The CFL playoffs begin in early November with the top team from each division having an automatic home berth in the division final, and a bye week during the division semifinal. The second-place team from each division hosts the third-place team in the division semifinal, unless a fourth-place team from one division finishes with a better record than a third place team in the other. (This provision is known as the crossover rule.)

Updated from previous CFL seasons, the records of which on this site were maintained by Desmond Smith.
