NFL Playoff Games on TV Today (Saturday, Jan. 16)

The NFL playoffs continue with a pair of Divisional Round games on Saturday, Jan. 16. After an expanded playoff field produced "Super Wild Card Weekend," we have reached the halfway mark in the 17-game playoff schedule.

Both games carry plenty of intrigue — they should be as exciting as they are cold. The Packers will notably make their postseason debut when they host the Rams, fresh off an upset of the division-rival Seahawks, on the frozen tundra. Meanwhile, while it may not snow in Buffalo, temperatures for the Ravens-Bills game are still expected to dip below freezing.

So if you're wondering "What NFL playoff games are on today?" know this: There are two scheduled for today, Saturday, Jan. 16.

NFC Divisional Round: Los Angeles Rams (11-6) at Green Bay (13-3), 4:35 p.m. on FOX

Although the Rams and Packers haven't played since 2018, they should be familiar with each other. After all, Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur was the Rams' offensive coordinator in Sean McVay's first year in charge in 2017. Both teams lean heavily on play-action, so their defense should be familiar from practice. The Packers have the clear advantage at quarterback — Jared Goff's health remains in question after recently undergoing surgery to repair his broken thumb — but the Rams have the league's best defense and two of the best defenders in All-Pros Aaron Donald (who also is banged up) and Jalen Ramsey.

AFC Divisional Round: Baltimore (12-5) at Buffalo (14-3), 8:15 p.m. on NBC

The 2018 quarterback draft class will spark debates until the end of time, but Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen — selected 25 picks apart — will have a chance to face off for the first time in the playoffs in prime time. They each earned their first postseason win last week and have their teams on incredible hot streaks. Baltimore has won six straight while the Bills have won seven in a row, and both have done so with an average margin of just over 17 points per game.
