NFL Playoff Schedule and Start Times for Super Wild Card Weekend

The NFL regular season has quite literally flown by. With the advent of a 17-game schedule, there is a Week 18 still to come this weekend. As a result, the NFL playoff schedule has been pushed back one week compared to previous years. This year’s NFL Wild Card Weekend is set to span three days from Saturday, January 15th-Monday, January 17th. The second edition of “Super Wildcard Weekend,” which was born one year ago when the league expanded the AFC and NFC Playoffs to include seven teams, features three games slated for primetime kickoffs.

If you did a double-take on the fact that NFL Wild Card Weekend will extend into Monday, we assure you that it’s not a typo. The sixth and final Wild Card playoff game will be telecast on Monday night across the ESPN family of networks. Essentially, fans are getting a bonus Monday Night Football game from the same network that typically telecasts on the first night of the week. This marks the first of a five-year deal for the last game of Super Wild Card Weekend to be played in primetime on Monday night.

The following article provides an outline of the full NFL playoff schedule for Wild Card Weekend. Read on for the dates, start times and TV coverage for the six opening-round games in the AFC and NFC Playoffs.
