The National Football League playoffs for the 1996 season began on December 28, 1996. The postseason tournament concluded with the Green Bay Packers defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI, 35–21, on January 26, 1997, at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This postseason was remarkable in that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers each finished conference runner-up (by respectively upsetting the top seed (Broncos) and the defending champs (Cowboys) along the way), only two years after their inception into the league as expansion teams.
