Here’s the full schedule for the 2024 NFL playoffs

The NFL postseason is now entering the divisional round, and if you like rematches, then this is the round for you. 

Of the four games being played this weekend, three of them will be a rematch from the regular season. The only divisional game that’s not a rematch will be happening at Levi’s Stadium where the San Francisco 49ers will be hosting the Green Bay Packers. 

Although those two teams didn’t play this year, they are definitely very familiar with each other: This will mark the third time in five seasons that the Packers and 49ers have met in the postseason. It’s also their 10th playoff meeting overall, which is the NFL record for most postseason games between two teams. 

With that in mind, let’s check out the entire 2024 NFL playoff schedule. 

Super Wild Card Weekend

Saturday, Jan. 13

Sunday, Jan. 14

  • (7) Packers 48-32 over (2) Cowboys. In the biggest upset of the wild-card round, the Packers went into Dallas and handed a beatdown to the Cowboys. Jordan Love finished the game with a passer rating of 157.2, which is tied for the fourth-highest ever in an NFL postseason game. It was a dominant performance by the Packers, who led 48-16 before the Cowboys were able to score two touchdowns in garbage time.   
  • (3) Lions 24-23 over (6) Rams. The Lions picked up their first playoff win in 32 years in a game that went down to the wire. The victory wasn’t sealed until the Lions defense came up with a stop in the final minutes after the Rams had driven into Detroit’s territory.  

Monday, Jan. 15

  • (2) Bills 31-17 over (7) Steelers. Not even a one-day delay could slow down the Bills offense. Not only did Josh Allen throw for three touchdowns, but he also had the longest run of his career with a 52-yard score. Allen totaled 277 yards in the win (203 passing, 74 rushing).  
  • (4) Buccaneers 32-9 over (5) Eagles. The Eagles suffered a total collapse over the final few weeks of the regular season, and they weren’t able to stop the bleeding in the playoffs. The Philadelphia defense got gashed by Baker Mayfield, who threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns in Tampa Bay’s win.  

Divisional Round

Saturday, Jan. 20

  • (1) Ravens 34-10 over (4) Texans. This game was tied at halftime, but the Ravens blew it open during a second half where they outscored Houston 24-0. The Texans simply had no answers for a Ravens rushing attack that totaled 235 yards. Lamar Jackson was the star of the show with four total touchdowns (two passing, two rushing) and 100 rushing yards.  
  • (7) Packers at (1) 49ers, 8:15 p.m. ET (Fox). This will mark the third time in the past five seasons that these two teams have met in the postseason with Kyle Shanahan’s 49ers going 2-0 against Matt LaFleur and the Packers.

Sunday, Jan. 21

  • (4) Buccaneers at (3) Lions, 3 p.m. ET (NBC). The Lions will be hosting their first divisional round home game since January 1992, and they’ll be facing a Buccaneers team they beat 20-6 back in Week 6. This game will feature the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft (Jared Goff) facing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft (Baker Mayfield). 
  • (3) Chiefs at (2) Bills, 6:30 p.m. ET (CBS, Paramount+). For the third time in five seasons, these two teams will be meeting in the playoffs. We all remember their last postseason meeting back in January 2022 when the Chiefs put together a scoring drive in just 13 seconds to send the game to overtime (The Chiefs would eventually win). These two teams actually played in Kansas City back in Week 14 with the Bills winning 20-17. This is the seventh time that Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes have faced each other and the series is currently tied at three.  

Championship Sunday

Sunday, Jan. 28

AFC Championship, 3 p.m. ET (CBS)

  • Chiefs/Bills at (1) Ravens. The Ravens will be hosting an AFC title game for the first time in franchise history and it’s going to be a monumental showdown with Lamar Jackson either facing off against Patrick Mahomes or Josh Allen. 

NFC Championship, 6:30 p.m. ET (Fox)

Super Bowl LVIII 

Sunday, Feb. 11

AFC vs. NFC in Las Vegas, 6:30 p.m. ET 

The Super Bowl will be televised on CBS with an alternate broadcast available on Nickelodeon. You’ll also be able to stream the game on Paramount+ (Try seven days free here)
