The playoffs got off to a fast start on Saturday, as we’ve already witnessed two upsets in the first two games of the postseason. First, the Tennessee Titans pulled off a hell of a comeback on the Kansas City Chiefs, who just can’t seem to get out of their own way in the playoffs.

Then, the Los Angeles Rams lost all of their regular season magic when the more experienced Atlanta Falcons came to town and humbled Sean McVay’s crew.

Today, we’re in for another couplet of games, but will we be treated to similar upsets? The first matchup of the day presents two teams that are quite unfamiliar with the playoffs. The Jaguars, after a somewhat dominant regular season, enter their first postseason in 10 years. The Bills, helped by the miracle of Andy Dalton’s arm, find themselves in the playoffs for the first time since 1999—when they fell victim to the Music City Miracle.

Which team will make the most of their return to the postseason? Time to find out.

No. 3 Jacksonville Jaguars vs. No. 6 Buffalo Bills

Location: Everbank Field — Jacksonville, FL
Date/Time: January 7, 2017 — 1:05 p.m. ET
