After a Super Wild Card weekend that wasn’t so super, the divisional round of the playoffs will be kicking off this weekend and based on the matchups, it could be wild weekend.
The divisional round will be kicking off in Tennessee. After earning a first-round bye, the Titans will open up postseason play by hosting a Bengals team that’s fresh off their first playoff win in 31 years. That game, which is being played between two teams that have never won the Super Bowl, will kick off at 4:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
The nightcap on Saturday will feature the top-seeded Packers kicking off their playoff run with a game against the 49ers at Lambeau Field, and yes, the tundra will almost certainly be frozen. The kickoff temperature in Green Bay is expected to be under 20 degrees.
On Sunday, the Rams will be traveling to Tampa Bay to take on the defending champion Buccaneers. The final game of the divisional round will be coming to us at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday and it will be giving us a rematch of last season’s AFC title game with the Bills traveling to Kansas City to play the Chiefs.
Here’s a look at the playoff schedule along with the results of each game that’s been played so far.
