NFL Playoff Schedule: Wild Card Round

Welcome to Wild Card weekend. Let’s all root for the team we think will send the Kansas City Chiefs to a first-round exit.

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have no place in the 2018 NFL playoffs, but football is football. In the AFC, both the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will be on a first round Bye, while the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams have it on the NFC side of things.

As far as seeding goes, the Chiefs will play the Colts if they win their game, but could also end up playing the winner of the Ravens-Chargers game is the Texans advance. In the NFC, the Eagles would only advance to face the Saints with a win as the sixth seed.

Which team do you think has the best shot at sending the Chiefs to a first-round exit next week?
