They do not take into account out of conference play. You are advocating a system that literally disregards up to a third of a season. Should the NFL just ignore the results of the ten non-divisional games each season and just put the teams who won the most games within their division into the playoffs?
The NFL playoff system doesn't account for what teams do in the pre-season.
