Start or Sit (NFC home games)
Reporting on the impact of the coronavirus on the sports world
The NFL playoffs are finally around the corner and this year they will look very different. For the first time in league history, not only will there be 14 teams in the postseason, but also some new faces, and that’s because the two longest playoff droughts in the NFL ended this year.
In the AFC, the Browns are in the postseason for the first time since 2002, ending the longest playoff drought in the NFL. In a twist of fortune, the Browns will be forced to play against a Steelers team that knocked Cleveland out of the playoffs in the last two games the Browns made it in (1994, 2002). . The Browns will win their first playoff game since 1994, but they won’t be the only team looking to end a losing streak. The Bills, who will face the Colts, will attempt to win their first postseason game since the 1995 season.
The Bills will start the playoffs with the first game on Saturday this year, while the Browns will finish the wildcard round with a game against the Steelers on Sunday evening.
In the NFC, Tom Brady led the Buccaneers to their first post-season appearance since 2007, ending the longest playoff drought in the conference. Despite making 17 playoffs for Brady, this is the first time he has qualified on a wildcard team. (He’s played the wildcard round before, but it only happened because the Patriots were hosting a game as division champions. )
The NFC is absolutely loaded with star power. In addition to Brady, three other Super Bowl quarterbacks with Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Russell Wilson will be featured at the conference. Compared to those three, Rodgers will find it a little easier to get back to the Super Bowl, and that’s because the Packers say goodbye in the first round.
With 14 teams, the playoffs will look a little different this year. For the first time, the wildcard round will feature a triple header on both Saturday and Sunday. After the NFL somehow managed to play 256 regular season games during a pandemic, the NFL only needs to play 13 more to crown a Super Bowl champion. With that in mind, here is the full post-season schedule.
Saturday 9. January (7) Colts at (2) Bills, 1:05 p. m. ET (CBS) (6) Rams at (3) Seahawks, 4:40 p. m. ET (Fox) (5) Buccaneers in (4) Washington / Giants, 8:15 p. m. ET (NBC)
Sunday 10. January (5) Ravens at (4) Titans, 1:05 p. m. ET (ABC) (7) bears at (2) saints, 4:40 p. m. ET (CBS / Nickelodeon / Amazon Prime) (6) Browns at (3) Steelers, 8:15 p. m. ET (NBC)
Note: The Chiefs and Packers are both playing their first postseason game in the Divisional Round, but the schedule for that round has not yet been released.
