The Miami Dolphins’ win over the New York Jets was the first playoff game for the NFL’s new free agency rules.
However, the new rules will only apply to the Miami Dolphins.
The other five teams will be allowed to re-sign players under the new guidelines, which will be applied to all teams during the 2018 season.
The New York Giants, who have won four Super Bowls since their inception in the 1960s, are the only other team that has a chance to make the postseason, with two more Super Bowl wins expected.
However the Giants have been the most active team in their free agency this year, signing a pair of top draft picks and signing free agent wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.
The Giants also have a pair in free agency of free agents that could make the team this season.
Defensive tackle Justin Tuck and running back Rashad Jennings could make their debut in 2018, while wide receiver Victor Cruz is set to make his debut in 2019.
The only other teams to not have a playoff appearance since the rule was implemented in 2010 are the Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions.
