2023 NFL playoff bracket, schedule: Dates, times, TV, streaming for every round of AFC and NFC postseason

After a Super Wild Card weekend that certainly lived up to its name, the division round is scheduled for the coming weekend.

The Cowboys were the last team to punch their ticket to the divisional round, and they did so on Monday night by destroying the Buccaneers. The victory over Tampa Bay now earns the Cowboys a trip to San Francisco, where they face a 49ers team that knocked them out of the playoffs last season.

In the other NFC game, the Giants travel to Philadelphia to face an Eagles team that has already defeated them twice this year. With the Giants, Cowboys and Eagles all in the division round, it marks the first time since the NFC Central in 1997 that one division sent three teams to the second round.

In the AFC, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs play their first game of the postseason when they host the Jaguars on Saturday. The heavyweight game in the AFC then takes place on Sunday when the Bills receive the Bengals. The two teams were scheduled to play each other in Week 17, but the game was canceled after a frightening incident in which Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest in the first quarter.

Hamlin is now back in Buffalo, where he continues to recover.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the whole thing late season schedule and bracket.

Super Wild Card Weekend

Saturday January 14

  • (2) 49ers 41-23 over (7) Sea Hawks. The 49ers got a brief scare from the Seahawks on a day when Seattle jumped to a 17–16 halftime lead. But in the second half, San Francisco broke open the game with a dominant performance. Brock Purdy threw for 332 yards and became the first rookie in NFL history to total four touchdowns in a playoff game. (Purdy finished with three passing touchdowns and one rushing score).
  • (4) Jaguars 31-30 left (5) Chargers. The Jaguars won this game by pulling off one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history. The Jags fell behind 27-0 early in the game, largely due to four interceptions by Trevor Lawrence, but they recovered to get the stunning victory, largely due to Lawrence, who threw four touchdown passes.

Sunday January 15

  • (2) Bills 34-31 above (7) Dolphins. The Dolphins went into this game as the biggest underdog in wild card round history (+14) and despite those odds, they were still able to give the Bills a good scare. In the end, the Bills were able to stave off the upset thanks to Josh Allen (352 passing yards, three touchdowns) and a defense that came up with several big plays, including two turnovers, four sacks and a fourth down stop that was ice cold. the game with only 2:30 left to play.
  • (6) Giants 31-24 over (3) Vikings. New York was able to get upset in Minnesota thanks to a historic performance by Daniel Jones, who became the FIRST QB in NFL playoff history to throw for at least 300 and two touchdowns, while also throwing at least 70 yards on the added soil. Not only did Jones throw for 301 yards, but he was the game’s leading rusher with 78 yards on 17 carries. The win over Minnesota marked the Giants’ first playoff win since defeating the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI in February 2012.
  • (3) Bengal 24-17 over (6) Raven. The Ravens had Cincinnati in control for most of this game, but the Bengals managed to escape with a victory thanks to their defense, which came on with one of the greatest plays in NFL postseason history. With the Ravens on Cincinnati’s one-yard line, Tyler Huntley fumbled and Sam Hubbard returned that fumble 98 yards for what ended up being the game-winning touchdown.

Monday January 16

  • (5) Cowboys 31-14 left (4) Corsairs. The Cowboys dominated this game from start to finish, and a big reason why that happened was because of Dak Prescott, who had a historic big night. The Cowboys QB set a franchise record with five total touchdowns (four passes, one rush) while also throwing for 305 yards. The only Cowboys player to struggle in this game was kicker Brett Maher, who missed an NFL-record four extra points. The Cowboys will now have to decide whether to keep him for Sunday’s game in San Francisco.

Division round

Saturday January 21

  • (4) Jaguars at (1) Chiefs (-8.5), 4:30 p.m. ET (NBC). After getting a week off, the Chiefs open their postseason run with a game against a Jaguars team they actually played earlier in the season. In Week 10, the Chiefs defeated the Jags 27-17 in a game that saw Kansas City jump out to a 20-0 lead before rolling out to victory.
  • (6) Giants at (1) Eagles (-7.5), 8:15 p.m. ET (fox). These two league rivals meet for the third time this season and the Giants are hoping this game will have a different outcome than the first two, both of which were won by Philadelphia. This marks the 25th time in NFL history that a team has swept its divisional rival in the regular season and then played them again in the playoffs. The team that went 2-0 during the regular season has made the three-game sweep 15 out of 24 times.

Sunday January 22

  • (3) Bengal on (2) Bills (-5), 3 p.m. ET (CBS). This game is played exactly 20 days after their original game was canceled due to the situation involving Damar Hamlin. Now that Hamlin is back home in Buffalo, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if he attended this game.
  • (5) Cowboys at (2) 49ers (-4), 6:30 p.m. ET (Fox). The 49ers didn’t play the Cowboys this year, but these two teams did meet last January in a playoff game at stake. The 49ers’ 23-17 wild card victory last season was only decided when the Cowboys inexplicably called a QB draw in the final seconds even though they had no timeouts. That game was played in Dallas, but this time the game will be played in San Francisco.
