2021 NFL playoff schedule: TV channel, online streaming options for Wild Card Saturday

10.5 hours of playoff football. LET’S GO!

The NFL playoffs kick off in just a few hours, and we’re about to experience a Wild Card weekend unlike any before. Gone are your typical two-game playoff weekends. Thanks to the addition of a playoff spot and the removal of one team with a bye, there will be three playoff games on both Saturday and Sunday. That means over 10 straight hours of playoff football on two consecutive days. I can’t think of anything more beautiful.

Things kick off with one of the hottest teams in the NFL. Josh Allen and the Bills finished the season winning nine of their final 10 games. Thanks to a red-hot offense, they seem like the team most likely to take down the defending AFC champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. But first they must take down an Indianapolis Colts team that has one of the better defenses in the league. Can they slow Allen?

Then we’ve got a classic NFC West matchup between the Rams and Seahawks as Part 2. The Seahawks looked like a flawed team early in the season, but their defense has shored up and Russell Wilson is still as dangerous as ever. Meanwhile, the Rams are dealing with injuries and stumbled their way over the finish line.

To finish the evening of football, it’s Tom Brady and the playoffs. Is there anything else that needs to be said?

Here’s how you can watch the tripleheader.
