There is no shortage of narratives for these three games, from a rematch of Tom Brady and his multi-time Super Bowl foe Philadelphia Eagles, to a historic rivalry, to what potentially could be a Hall of Famer's last game. It should be a great day of football for 10-plus hours.

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

Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.

NFL Games on TV Today

Philadelphia at Tampa Bay, 1 p.m. on FOX

Tom Brady has to hope that this game is more like 2005 than 2018, and the good news for the defending champions is that the Buccaneers already handled the Eagles 28-22 in October. The pressure will be on Jalen Hurts to perform, or else the team may look to upgrade at quarterback during the offseason.

San Francisco at Dallas, 4:30 p.m. on CBS

This game has the closest line of the first round — and for good reason. The 49ers have finished the season strong, and the Cowboys may have the most star-power of any playoff team but lack depth. The winner of this game will likely face the Packers in what has the makings of a playoff classic.

Pittsburgh at Kansas City, 8:15 p.m. on NBC (SNF)

Even Ben Roethlisberger said that the Steelers "don't have a chance" against the Chiefs, and Pittsburgh is the biggest underdog in wild-card history by point spread. That's not quite true, but it will take quite the performance from him and T.J. Watt to upset the Chiefs at home.
