2023-24 NFL Playoff Schedule: Divisional Round Matchups and TV Schedule are Set

The Houston Texans are on to the divisional round. So are the Kansas City Chiefs. And you can punch the tickets for the Green Bay Packers. While some opponents are yet to be determined, we now have a divisional schedule for the playoffs with TV, date and time.

The Detroit Lions gave fans an emotional playoff win, taking down a former QB in Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams24-23. Another remarkable storyline came out of Dallas as the red-hot Green Bay Packers demolished the Cowboysgiving a team that hadn’t lost at home this season a playoff loss.

The Texans took down the Cleveland Browns at home in a 45-14 beatdown of the team that had allowed the fewest yards per game of any in the NFL during the regular season. Rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud shined in his playoff debut for Houston, completing 16 of 21 pass attempts for 274 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Kansas City defeated the Miami Dolphins in the fourth-coldest game in NFL history, 26-7. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes led the way for the Chiefs with 262 passing yards and a touchdown while their defense stymied Miami head coach Mike McDaniel’s offensive game plan.

Here’s what teams the Texans and Chiefs might play, as well as an update on this year’s playoff bracket.

How does the NFL Playoffs’ dynamic bracket work?

The NFL playoffs are dynamic, meaning the bracket changes as the playoffs progress. Every round, the highest seeds remaining are guaranteed a home-field advantage.

After the wild-card round, the Ravens and 49ers will play the lowest seed remaining in their conference, whether it’s the No. 4 seed, the No. 7 seed or anything in between. The second-highest seed remaining would play the second-lowest seed remaining.

If either the Ravens or 49ers fall in a divisional round upset, the highest seed remaining below them – not the team that beat them – would get home-field advantage in their conference championship game.
