The first two games of the NFL’s 2022 Wildcard playoff schedule were held on Saturday, with the Cincinnati Bengals beating the Las Vegas Raiders and the Buffalo Bills demolishing the New England Patriots. Three more games will be played on Sunday, while the sixth game of the weekend will kickoff on Monday night.

Sunday starts with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NFC’s second-seeded team, hosting the seventh-seeded Philadelphia Eagles. Staying in the NFC for the mid-game in the triple header, the third-seeded Dallas Cowboys host the sixth-seeded San Francisco 49ers Sunday afternoon. On Sunday night, the final game in the AFC slate will feature the second-seeded Kansas City Chiefs hosting the seventh-seeded Pittsburgh Steelers.

Monday night will close out the NFC with the fourth-seeded Los Angeles Rams hosting the fifth-seeded Arizona Cardinals.

Next weekend’s Divisional Round will welcome the top seeds from the AFC, the Tennessee Titans, and the NFC, the Green Bay Packers, into the postseason tournament. The matchups for next weekend will be determined by this weekend’s games, with the lowest remaining seeded team facing the top seed from their conference, while the other two teams will then face off. Kickoff times for next week will also be announced later this weekend.
