Wild Card weekend kicks off with Chiefs visiting Colts


The NFL has announced the schedule for Wild Card weekend, which will kick off with the Chiefs visiting the Colts on NBC next Saturday at 4:35 p.m. ET.

The Saints won’t know whether they are going to Dallas or Philadelphia to test their ability to win on the road for a little while yet, but they know when they’ll be playing. They’ll kick off at 8:10 p.m. ET in a game that will also be broadcast on NBC.

San Diego, the final team to book passage to the playoffs this year, will kick off Sunday’s action in Cincinnati. The game will be at 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS.

The final game of the weekend will get underway at 4:40 p.m. ET on FOX. The 49ers earned the fifth seed by outlasting the Cardinals on Sunday and that means they’ll head to Lambeau Field for a rematch of a game from last year’s playoffs.

The NFL also announced the preliminary schedule for the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The Seahawks will be home at 4:35 p.m. ET on Saturday with the Patriots hosting a game at 8:15 p.m. ET. The Panthers get the early 1:05 p.m. ET slot on Sunday and the Broncos will host the final game of the weekend at 4:40 p.m. ET.
