Though there’s one game remaining in wild-card weekend, the NFL has announced the schedule for the four divisional-round games.

The Packers and Rams will lead things off. The NFC’s No. 1 seed, Green Bay will come off its playoff bye to host Los Angeles at 4:35 p.m. ET on Fox.

The Bills will host the Saturday night game against either the Ravens or Steelers at 8:15 p.m. ET on NBC.

The Ravens could also be headed to Kansas City if Pittsburgh wins on Sunday night. The AFC’s top seeded Chiefs will play either the Ravens or Browns with a 3:05 p.m. ET start on CBS on Sunday afternoon.

The Buccaneers and Saints will end the weekend with a 6:40 p.m. ET Sunday kickoff from New Orleans on Fox.

  1. How exactly will the Bills host either the Steelers or Ravens, when you later claim that if the Steelers win they are headed to KC?

  2. Both one seeds should play on Saturday. Gives them both the better advantage they earned during the regular season due to having a bye week.

    Makes no sense but Chiefs will be good to go no matter when they play.

  3. Sounds like another weekend of good games…
    The Colts, Seahawks, ‘washington’, Titans and Breads showed they weren’t playoff level teams…

    Hopefully the Bills or the Chiefs will run over the ravens and show that tclasslees and low level teams don’t belong!

  4. Just turned the game on. Did the NFL spot the browns 14? I am going to laugh hard if they lose anyways. Either team loses next week.

  5. Rodgers hasn’t seen a defense like this.

    Will be a low scoring game, but Rams should upset them easily.

    Green Bay in the late afternoon = cold.
    Buffalo at night = really cold.
    __________

    Not even that cold for the Packer game.
    The early GB forecast is dry, calling for a balmy 25* at kickoff.

    I thought, that can’t be right! So I checked.

    Current temp in GB? 22°f
    Humidity 88%
    Wind 6mph

    Current temp in Buffalo? 32°f
    Humidity 78%
    Wind 4%

    Next Sunday forecast?

    GB high 24°… low 13°
    Humidity 73%
    Wind 9mph
    Precip 10%…snow!

    Buffalo high 32°… low 28°
    Humidity 71%
    Wind 15mph
    Precip 40% … snow?

    The high in GB is forecasted to be lower than the low in Buffalo

    It will be colder in GB….day or night!

  8. Without the usual tens of thousands heat generators called fans, the stadiums will feel even colder for the players. Should be fun…

    _________________________________

    Cold weather will not affect a running team like the Ravens.

    Baltimore will be playing in the AFC Championship Game in 2 weeks.

  10. Living your day-in, day-out regular routine in the cold everyday prepares you better than players who live in California. It’s not a game-day thing.

  11. I see that the Saturday matinee game is just a warm up for the real contenders that will play either Saturday night or on Sunday.

    They put the best matchup on Sunday night…

  12. After three competitive, quality games on Saturday, Sunday seemed to just be a blur of receivers dropping balls and coaches punting in opponent’s territory. Hopefully next week will be better.
