Wild Card Weekend was one for the ages, and now, we can turn the page to the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs. With eight teams left fighting it out for the Lombardi Trophy, let’s take a look at the current schedule. Is there a Thursday Night Football game tonight, or do we need to wait for the weekend for more NFL action?
There are no NFL games today. Thursday Night Football ended back in Week 17, and we will not see another version until next season. Although there are no NFL games today, there is still a ton of matchups to look forward to over the next few days.
The Divisional Round kicks off with an AFC battle between the surprising Jacksonville Jaguars and the perennial powerhouse Kansas City Chiefs. After a shocking come-from-behind win during Wild Card Weekend, can the Jaguars continue their magical run, or will Trevor Lawrence’s first-half performance against the Los Angeles Chargers repeat itself in Arrowhead?
With three NFC East teams still alive in the playoffs, Saturday Night Football will pit two of them against one another when the New York Giants travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles. After a masterclass performance from Daniel Jones against the Vikings last week, can the surprising Giants knock off the top seed in the NFC?
Or will Philadelphia’s defense do what the Vikings couldn’t and contain this suddenly explosive offense?
Heading over to Sunday, we start the day with a huge matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. Everyone remembers what happened the last time these two teams played, and now, they meet again only a few weeks removed from Damar Hamlin’s terrifying injury.
The last game of the Divisional Round is between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. Brock Purdy, aka everyone’s favorite Mr. Irrelevant, has helped lead the Niners into an 11-game winning streak. Thanks to an excellent run game and elite defense, this 49ers team has very few flaws.
However, the Cowboys just took care of Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, and if their QB Dak Prescott continues to play like he did last week, they might have a shot to surprise.
