NFL Wild-Card Schedule, TV Channels and Stream: Jan. 7

NFL wild-card games - Cam Newton for Carolina Panthers

MIAMI, Fla. — The NFL postseason fixtures continue on Sunday with two more wild-card games live on CBS and Fox, respectively.

A pair of wild-card games were played on Saturday with the Tennessee Titans beating the Kansas City Chiefs and the Atlanta Falcons easing past the Los Angeles Rams.

At the EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla., on Sunday, the Jaguars will play hosts to the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game.

Live coverage of this game is slated for 1:05 pm ET and CBS will have the live television broadcast.

Jacksonville (10-6) comes into this game full of confidence after winning its first-ever AFC South title and is in the playoffs for the first time in 10-years.

The Jaguars, who were an NFL-worst 17-63 over the previous five seasons, are also hosting their first playoff game since 1999 at EverBank Field.

Meanwhile, Buffalo (9-7) secured the sixth seed and final wild-card berth after winning three of its last four games, including a win over the Miami Dolphins in the final game of the regular season to snap a playoff drought that dated back to 1999.

The second game of the game will come from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, where the Drew Brees and the Saints will entertain Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in an NFC wild-card playoff battle.

Coverage of this game is set for FOX at 4:40 pm and will be stream live on FoxSportsGO.

The Saints (11-5) won the NFC South title and have beaten the Panthers (11-5) twice already this season.

“I prepare like every game could be my last or (like) it’s a playoff game or I’ve got something to prove and I’ve got an edge,” Brees said.

“It’s not like, ‘Oh, the playoffs are here, it’s time to ramp it up or things are a little more important.’ It’s always important for me.”

Despite losing twice to the Saints this season, Newton doesn’t think Carolina is at a disadvantage.

“This is when real football starts,” said Newton. “(We’re) explaining it to the young guys and the guys who haven’t witnessed playoff football.

“This is where you are made or broke. I look forward to these types of moments because it brings out the best in individuals because there is so much pressure.

“We all know what they say about pressure — it does one of two things — and we’re hoping to shine like diamonds.”
