NFL Wild Card Playoff Round Schedule, TV Channels: Jan. 6

KANSAS CITY — The NFL playoff round kicks off with two wild card games on Saturday and you can stream them both live online.

In the day’s opening wild card playoff round game on Saturday afternoon at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs will entertain the Tennessee Titans.

Live coverage will begin at 4:20 pm ET and its available on ESPN and ABC and streaming live on WatchESPN.

Kansas City (10-6), which beat Tennessee (9-7) in the preseason, 30-6 enters this game as an 8.5 point favorite to advance and the football experts are expecting another big win for the home side which is once again back in good form.

In fact, ESPN’s Football Power Index is giving Kansas City a 75 percent chance to beat the Titans, who, according to ESPN’s Stats and Information, are ranked 19th in football.

After losing four straight, the Chiefs, who are 6-2 at home, have won four in a row and head into this contest full of confidence.

Meanwhile, the Titans picked up a vital and surprising victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on the final day of regular season action last weekend to clinch an AFC wild-card berth and snapped an eight-season playoff drought.

However, they have lost three of the last four overall and must come into this game with some sort of game plan to defend the Chiefs, and especially the likes of Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.

Tennessee will also come with its own plans, with quarterback Marcus Mariota and a very motivated running back Derrick Henry hoping to pick through the Kansas City defense.

I am expecting a high scoring contest in this one.

The second game of the NFL wild card playoff round on Saturday night will see the Los Angeles Rams taking on the Atlanta Falcons at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Coverage of this game will start at 8:15 pm and NBC will provide the live television broadcast. NBC online web player will also have live stream.

This wild-card matchup will feature two quarterbacks with the ability to overcome difficulty, which sets the stage for a very interesting battle between Jared Goff and Matt Ryan.

The Falcons are back in the playoffs to redeem themselves after the painful loss to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl last season when they led by 25points.

Atlanta head coach Dan Quinn also believes his team has long forgotten that meltdown and is ready to move forward.

“I love the resiliency and the toughness of this team,” Quinn said. “When you’ve been through some of the fire together, you come out the other side stronger as a brotherhood.”

An expected 70,000 fans are set to gather inside the historic L.A. Coliseum venue and the Rams, who are back in Los Angeles, start as the slight favorites.
