What time are NFL playoff games today? TV schedule, channels for Saturday’s divisional doubleheader

And then there were eight.

The first round of the NFL playoffs came to an end, with all of the division champions winning their first-round matchups except the Cowboys to set up the divisional round of the playoffs.

The next wave of NFL action begins on Saturday, with both No. 1 seeds returning to action after receiving first-round byes. The Titans will be the first team to start, when they take on the Bengals in a matchup that pits the return of star running back Derrick Henry against the dynamic passing offense of Joe Burrow and Cincinnati. The primetime matchup will see Aaron Rodgers and the Packers return to the field to take on the 49ers in a rematch of the 2020 NFC Championship Game.

Sporting News has you covered with all the information you need to know to watch Saturday’s doubleheader, including channel, start time and matchup information.

What time are the NFL playoff games today?

game 1

  • Match: Tennessee Titans vs. Cincinnati Bengals
  • Location: Nissan Stadium, Nashville, Tenn.
  • Start time: 4:30 p.m. ET

game 2

  • Match: Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers
  • Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin.
  • Start time: 8:15 p.m. ET

Henry is back for the first time since his Week 8 broken foot injury, and he comes at just the right time for the Titans. Tennessee hosts the Bengals in their first playoff game this season after earning a first-round bye. Despite missing Henry for more than half the season, the Titans finished the season as the fifth-leading rushing team in the league. They’ll have to deal with a powerful Bengals offense that has seen Burrow and his array of weapons, including presumptive Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja’Marr Chase, torch opposing defenses in recent games.

Rodgers and the Packers have struggled to get past the 49ers in the playoffs. Since taking over center in Green Bay, Rodgers is 0-3 against San Francisco in the playoffs, with the last meeting coming in the 2020 NFC Championship Game that sent the 49ers to the Super Bowl. But this Packers team is firing on all cylinders, with Rodgers playing at an MVP level. In Rodgers’ final seven games of the season, he completed 72 percent of his passes for 1,929 yards with 20 touchdowns and no interceptions.
