NFL Playoffs open thread: Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Watch the opening game of the 2017 NFL Playoffs with us.

NFL: AFC Wild Card-Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Here we go. 12 teams left. Four weeks remain before Super Bowl LII will determine the championship of the 2017 NFL season.

The postseason kicks off with an AFC matchup between two underwhelming teams. The Titans snuck into the playoffs in the final week of the season with a 9-7 record. The Chiefs won their division with a modest 10-6 record, in spite of a losing six of seven games in the middle of the year.

It’s not exactly the marquee matchup to break into the postseason, but these are two teams that are looking to turn around their franchise’s fortunes, and that can be endearing for a fanbase like the Lions, who hope to accomplish the same thing.

Here’s how to watch Saturday afternoon’s game:

No. 4 Kansas City Chiefs vs. No. 5 Tennessee Titans

Location: Arrowhead Stadium — Kansas City, MO
Date/Time: January 6, 2019 — 4:35 p.m. ET
TV: ESPN (simulcast on ABC)
Online: WatchESPN
Odds: Chiefs by 8.5
