NFL playoff schedule: What games are on today? TV channels, schedules, scores for the 2022 divisional round

NFL Wild Card Weekend featured 12 teams playing for the right to advance to the playoffs, but the results were anything but wild. Games were decided by an average margin of 17.3 points per game, with the six-point contest between the Cowboys and 49ers being the closest of the group and the only upset.

Surely, NFL fans will be hoping for better action in the divisional round of the 2022 NFL playoffs. Fortunately, the matchups are quite enticing, and the top-ranked teams in each conference will join the fray as well.

Both the Titans and Packers will be in action this week after having a bye last week. The Packers take on the upstart 49ers, who stunned the Cowboys to earn the right to play the Packers, in a series that has been entertaining in recent seasons.

Meanwhile, the Titans take on the Bengals in a matchup of two good teams that are built almost like opposites. Tennessee prefers to run the ball and control the clock, while Cincinnati has a robust and explosive passing offense.

The other games, both on Sunday, will feature the Bucs and Rams in a clash of two strong defenses and a meeting between the Bills and Chiefs in a matchup of two closely matched AFC teams. The Chiefs are slight favorites to beat the Bills, but Buffalo’s defense may have something to say about that, even in a tough road environment like Arrowhead Stadium.

Here’s everything you need to know about NFL Divisional Round games, including a full schedule with TV channels and kickoff times.

Key argument: Is Derrick Henry going to play?

The Titans eagerly await news about their star running back. Henry has been out since Week 8 with a foot injury, but started practicing last week and could return to action against the Bengals if all goes well. Cincinnati is about to be without several defensive linemen, including starting tackle Larry Ogunjobi, so Henry’s presence could have a big impact in this contest if the Bengals can’t get back on their feet quickly.

49ers vs. Packers

key argument : Davante Adams vs. 49ers defense

The 49ers and Packers played in week 3 and the Packers won that game 30-28. San Francisco had a lot of trouble containing Davante Adams in that contest, as he racked up 12 receptions for 132 receiving yards and a touchdown. Aaron Rodgers can take advantage of the 49ers’ corners, the one weakness in their defense, and if Fred Warner (ankle) and Nick Bosa (concussion) can’t play, the Packers could win more easily than people expect.

Rams vs Buccaneers

key argument : Can Aaron Donald, Von Miller Make Tom Brady Nervous?

The Rams are very well suited to beat the Buccaneers. They have one of the best pass rushes in the NFL with Aaron Donald, Von Miller and Leonard Floyd on their team. Donald can easily get inside pressure, as Kyler Murray learned last week, and that’s what Brady struggles with the most. If the Rams can get Brady out of the groove without charging too much, it could be a long day for the Bucs’ offense, especially if Jalen Ramsey can contain Mike Evans.

Bills against bosses

  • Date: Sunday, January 16
  • Hour: 6:40 p.m. ET
  • Television channel: CBS
  • Live broadcast: supreme | fuboTV | DAZN (in Canada)

Key argument: Bills defense vs. Chiefs offense

The Bills have the best defense in the NFL in terms of points and yards allowed. The Chiefs arguably have the best quarterback in the NFL in Patrick Mahomes. Something will have to give in this duel. Will it be the Bills’ defense or will Mahomes struggle like he has at that point all year?
