NFL Playoffs Schedule (Updated)

NFL Playoff Schedule

Teams, times, TV channels updated weekly

The longest regular season in NFL history is over and what an ending it was. It took overtime in several games in Week 18, including the last one, to complete the brackets, but we have our playoff field. Seven teams from each conference are in, setting up six games during Super Wild Card Weekend, including the first-ever playoff game on a Monday night. As the top seeds in their respective conferences, Tennessee (AFC) and Green Bay (NFC) get to sit Super Wild Card Weekend out.

But don't forget, 10 wild-card teams have gone on to the Super Bowl, so don't discount any team's chances of advancing to play in Super Bowl LVI in SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, on Feb. 13.

Here are the relevant dates, with times (teams and TV info to come) to look forward to.
