NFL Playoffs: games, schedules & brackets
Fourteen teams originally lined up to compete in the NFL playoffs, as we move closer and closer to the main prize, Super Bowl 55.
The field for the NFL Playoffs began with 14 competitors all striving to make it to Super Bowl 55. As the NFL decided to expand the post-season to 14 teams, it was only the No.1 seeds -- the Chiefs (AFC) and the Packers (NFC) – that were entitled to byes to the second round, with the remaining 12 competing in a six-tie wild-card round that started on Saturday 9 January with the Bills vs the Colts.
The six victors (three from AFC and three from NFC) were then joined by the Chiefs and Packers in the NFL divisional rounds for each conference, to be followed by the NFL Conference Championships on 24 January, with the two winners from these two semi-final ties heading to Super Bowl LV.
