When do 2022 NFL Playoffs begin: Dates, kickoff times, schedule, TV, live stream for Super Wild Card Weekend


The NFL’s longest regular season is now over and the focus has shifted to the 2022 NFL Playoffs and it begins with Super Wild Card Weekend on Saturday. 

The NFL expanded the 2021 regular-season schedule from 16 games to 17 and the addition of the 17th game pushed back the start of the playoffs one week, which also means the Super Bowl will be later this year (Feb. 13).

The 2021 NFL playoffs included six wild card games and the same is true for this year’s playoffs, with a minor exception, last year three of those games were played on Saturday and the remaining three took place on Sunday. This year, there will be two played on Saturday, three on Sunday and one on Monday night.
