The games on Wild Card Weekend weren’t very exciting, but the NFL still scored monster ratings with all six games as the numbers shot up 21% over a year ago. With four outstanding match-ups on the docket this weekend, I would expect another big ratings winner for the league in the Divisional playoff round.
Here’s the full slate of games including the times and channel info.
Saturday, January 22
AFC: 3:30 PM (CT) - Cincinnati Bengals (11-7) W at Tennessee Titans (12-5) (CBS/Paramount+)
NFC: 7:15 PM (CT) - San Francisco 49ers (11-7) at Green Bay Packers (13-4) LOL (FOX/FOX Deportes)
Sunday, January 23
NFC: 2:00 PM (CT) - Los Angeles Rams (13-5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (14-4) (NBC/Peacock/Universo)
AFC: 6:40 PM (ET) - Buffalo Bills (12-6) at Kansas City Chiefs (13-5) (CBS/Paramount+)
Our partners over at DraftKings Sportsbook have the home teams favored in each game.
I’m taking the favorites in those first three contests, but I see the visiting Bills pulling off the upset in the Sunday late game. Edit: I’ve never been happier to be wrong about a prediction.

Before the games kick off on Saturday and Sunday we’ll refresh this post to serve as the weekend’s open thread.
