The postseason kicks off with an AFC double-header

The playoffs are here, and while we’re all probably still reeling from such a horrible Detroit Lions season, that’s no reason to sit out the postseason. Lately, the NFL Playoffs have been filled with fantastic, instant-classic games, and there’s no reason to think this year will be any different.

We’ve got a whole bunch of people doubting the New England Patriots—who will be playing in their first Wild Card game in a decade. We’ve got a hopeful Bills team, still looking to prove that their 10-6 record was no fluke. There’s the Titans, who managed to win five of their last seven games to slip into the playoffs past the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Houston Texans, who still have one of the youngest, most exciting weapons in the NFL in Deshaun Watson.

And that’s just the AFC.

Saturday will only feature that conference as the Buffalo Bills travel to take on the Texans and the night is capped off by the Patriots hosting the Titans.

Here’s how to watch both games.
