The 2020 NFL regular season is in the books and the opening round of the playoffs are set.

This was the first year with the expanded postseason field that saw an additional team from each conference added to the playoff picture.

The San Francisco 49ers won’t have the opportunity to defend their NFC crown, but will see two of the divisional rivals square off next weekend. The Los Angeles Rams will travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. The teams split their two meetings this season.

The Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs earned a bye by finishing as the No. 1 seed in their respective conferences.

Here is the schedule for the NFL’s Wild Card Weekend:


10:05 a.m. PT: Indianapolis Colts @ Buffalo Bills (CBS)

1:40 p.m. PT: Los Angeles Rams @ Seattle Seahawks (FOX)

5:15 p.m. PT: Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Washington Football Team (NBC)


10:05 a.m. PT: Baltimore Ravens @ Tennessee Titans (ESPN)

1:40 p.m. PT: Chicago Bears @ New Orleans Saints (CBS)

5:15 p.m. PT: Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers (NBC)

This will be an NFL postseason like no other. Teams will be dealing with the coronavirus and with the league’s COVID-19 protocols in place, we could see some of the playoff matchups impacted.
