Five of the first six NFL wild card playoff games are in the books. There were no major shakes in the first round, and the league has already announced pairings, times and TV channels for the division round this weekend 22-23. January.
Three of the four divisional round matches have been set. There’s still one more wild card game to be played Monday night between the Arizona Cardinals and the Los Angeles Rams.
Here are the TV and radio options for the first playoff game ever on Monday night:
Arizona Cardinals at the Los Angeles Rams, at. 20.15
TV: ABC / ESPN / ESPN2
National Radio: Westwood One
SIRIUS: 81 (AZ), 83 (LAR), 88 (national)
XM: 226 (AZ), 225 (LAR), 88 (national)
SXM app: 800 (AZ), 818 (LAR)
The winner of that game travels to Tampa Bay on Sunday to meet Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
The Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans are the top seeds in every conference and they received a farewell in the first round. They will each host a division match this Saturday and they will host a conference championship match next weekend if they move on.
Here are the pairings for the division round (All times ET):
Saturday, January 22nd
AFC: 16:30 Cincinnati Bengals on Tennessee Titans (CBS, Paramount +)
NFC: 20:15 San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers (FOX, FOX Deportes)
Sunday, January 23rd
NFC: 15.00 Arizona Cardinals / Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
(NBC, Peacock, Universo)
AFC: 18:30 Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs (CBS, Paramount +)
Through the first five wild card games, four of the home teams won. The San Francisco 49ers were the only team to win a road game when they went to Texas and beat the Dallas Cowboys out Sunday afternoon.
The Buffalo Bills thrashed the New England Patriots, the upstart Cincinnati Bengals looked sharp in their win over the Las Vegas Raiders, and the Kansas City Chiefs appear ready to defend their back-to-back AFC championship titles.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are the defending Super Bowl champions, have the depth and experience for yet another title race, and they showed it with a convincing victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. That game was the first real home playoff game at home since 2007, when the Tampa Bay Super Bowl title won at home last season was technically a “neutral field.”
