The NFL Playoffs are down to the final eight teams, bringing us to the Divisional Round of the postseason tournament. This weekend is often considered the best weekend of football, with four stand-alone games featuring the top teams in the league. Will this weekend live up to that standard?
The first game of the weekend will feature the Kansas City Chiefs heading to Foxboro to face the AFC East division champion New England Patriots. Kansas City's defense against the New England offense will be a fascinating matchup, and could go a long way to making this weekend a great couple of days of football.
The second game will see the Green Bay Packers head to Phoenix to rematch against the Arizona Cardinals just three weeks after losing to Arizona 38-8. In last weekend's Wildcard Round, the Packers looked more like the team that was expected to make a deep playoff run at the start of the season, rather than that team that Arizona crushed. Which Green Bay team shows up this weekend?
Below, you will find everything you need to know to watch or stream the two Saturday games. We will look at the two Sunday games later.
