The NFL’s week 18 has finished and the 2023 playoffs are set. Does your team still have a chance? Find out now!

Saturday, January 14:

The 2023 NFL playoffs start at 4:30 P.M. in San Francisco where the 2-seeded 49ers bring on the 7-seeded Seattle Seahawks who just barely got in over the Lions, who beat the Packers Sunday night 20-16, in a tiebreaker. The game will be aired on FOX.

The AFC side will get its playoffs started at 8:15 P.M. where the 5-seeded Los Angeles Chargers will travel to Duval County and take on the 4-seeded Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars are just 2 years removed from having the first overall pick, where they picked up QB Trevor Lawrence in 2021. This game will be aired on NBC.

Sunday, January 15:

The NFL Playoffs resume in Buffalo where the 2-seeded Bills will take on the 7-seeded Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are unsure at QB. Buffalo may face Teddy Bridgewater instead of Tua Tagovailoa. The Dolphins also needed to win last week, which they did, beating the Jets 11-6, after a last-second field goal and safety, knocking the Steelers out, who beat the Browns 28-14. This game will take place at 1:00 P.M. on CBS.

NFL playoffs continue at 4:30 P.M. where the 6-seeded New York Giants will travel to Minnesota and take on the 3-seeded Vikings. This game will be aired on FOX.

The final Sunday game will take place at 8:15 P. M will be an AFC North match-up, where the 6-seeded Ravens will head to Cincinnati and take on the 3-seeded Bengals. This game will be aired on NBC.

Monday, January 16:

The final wild card match-up will be the 5-seeded Cowboys heading to Tampa Bay and playing the 4-seeded Tom Brady and the Bucs. ESPN and ABC will be airing this match-up as Tom Brady looks to go for his 8th Super Bowl win.

Both the Kansas City Chiefs (AFC) and Philadelphia Eagles (NFC) hold the 1 seed on their respective sides so they will have a well-deserved off week.

Enjoy the NFL Playoffs Canes and I hope your team made it.
