The Divisional Round of the 2024 NFL playoffs is almost set. With the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, here are the matchups next weekend.

Saturday, Jan. 20

4:30 p.m. ET — Texans at Ravens
8 p.m. ET — Packers at 49ers

Sunday, Jan. 21

6:30 p.m. ET — Chiefs at Bills

The only remaining game to be decided is the Detroit Lions’ second-round matchup. Detroit has already advanced with their win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night, and because of the loss by the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit has earned themselves a second home playoff game.

They will host the winner of the last Wild Card game: Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Many believe those to be two of the weaker teams in the NFC playoffs. The Buccaneers made the postseason with a 9-8 record—the worst record among playoff teams—by nature of winning a soft NFC South. The Eagles finished the regular season 11-6, but they have lost five of their last six games, and look like they’re out of answers on both sides of the ball.

Earlier in the day, we asked Lions fans which team they would rather face in the NFC Divisional Round, and a whopping 87 percent of you want the Buccaneers.

Will a majority of Lions fans get their wish? Or will a reunion with former Lions head coach/now Eagles defensive coach Matt Patricia be in order?

Come hang out here during the final NFL playoff game of the week! Just scroll down to the comment section and sound off.
