Wild card weekend is an old weekend, and now, we can flip to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. With eight teams remaining in contention for the Lombardi Trophy, let’s take a look at the current schedule. Is there Thursday night football tonight, or do we need to wait until the weekend to see more NFL action?
No NFL game today. Thursday Night Football wraps up in week 17 and we won’t see another version until next season. Even though there are no NFL games today, there are plenty of games to look forward to over the next few days.
The divisional round kicked off with an AFC battle between the surprise Jacksonville Jaguars and the perennial Kansas City Chiefs. Can the Jaguars continue their magical run after a shocking comeback win over wild card weekend, or will Trevor Lawrence’s first-half performance against the Los Angeles Chargers be repeated at Arrowhead?
With three NFC East teams still in the playoffs, Saturday Night Football will pit two of those teams against each other when the New York Giants travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles. After Daniel Jones’ masterful performance against the Vikings last week, can the surprising Giants beat the NFC’s top seed?

Or will Philly’s defense do what the Vikings can’t and contain this sudden burst of offense?
Heading over to Sunday, we start the day with an intense matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals. Everyone remembers what happened the last time these two teams met and now, just weeks after Damar Hamlin’s horrific injury, they’re meeting again.
The final game of the divisional round is between the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers. Brock Purdy, aka everyone’s favorite Mr. Don’t Matter, helped lead the Niners to an 11-game winning streak. This 49ers team has few flaws thanks to great running and elite defense.
However, the Cowboys just tackled Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, and if their quarterback Dak Prescott continues to play like he did last week, they could be in for a surprise.
