NFL Games Today: TV Schedule, channel, time & live stream
The NFL playoffs are here after a wild season, and if you enjoy rematches, you’re sure to enjoy what the NFL has in store for this weekend’s wild-card round. It will be the seventh time since the merger of the NFL and AFL in 1970 that all six games in the opening round will be rematched from the regular season. Prior to this year, it had occurred most recently in 2009.
There will be some recognizable faces this year—hello, Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes—but there will also be three teams making their first postseason appearances in at least five years, including the Jaguars (2017), Giants (2016), and Dolphins (2016). Brady will actually be in a new situation this year, though. The 8-9 Buccaneers, who will be only the sixth club to ever make the playoffs with a losing record, will be coached by the legendary NFL player. Brady’s debut contest will take place against a Cowboys squad that he has never before lost to (7-0).
Remember that the AFC Championship Game between the Chiefs and Bills will take place at a neutral venue if the Chiefs and Bills end up playing each other. The defending AFC Champions, the Cincinnati Bengals, may have something to say about whether or not that game takes place, so nothing is guaranteed.
