The day of the Divisional Round of the playoffs will have four exciting games in which eight teams will be one step closer to being part of the most important party of the year, the Super Bowl LVI that will be played in Los Angeles at the spectacular SoFi Stadium .
The Rams will have the most difficult mission at this stage, as they hope to prevent Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers from getting close to the Super Bowl, where they hope to repeat as champions.
Here are the schedules and preview of each vibrant meeting…
Saturday, January 22
Bengals vs. Titans: 1:30 p.m., CBS/Paramount+
The Tennessee Titans focused their game on the ground this season and did it more than any other team in the NFL, while the Cincinnati Bengals kept a more open and balanced margin in their attack.
Running back Derrick Henry is back for the Titans, which will give the Bengals’ defense a headache.
49ers vs. Packers: 5:15 p.m., FOX Deportes/FOX
Several key players return to the Green Bay Packers lineup to face the mighty San Francisco 49ers: Jaire Alexander, Za’Darius Smith and David Bakhtiari, who actually returned in Week 18.
The 49ers will depend on which version of Jimmy Garoppolo makes it to the game. The quarterback has shown he can be deadly, but at the same time, blackouts lead to costly mistakes for his team.
Sunday, January 23
Rams vs. Buccaneers: 12 p.m., Universo/NBC/Peacock
The Rams completely dominated the Arizona Cardinals in an electric atmosphere at SoFi Stadium, where 70,625 fans gathered to see perhaps the best performance of the Los Angeles team all season.
Guided by Matthew Stafford, the Rams sent a message to the rest of the league that they are serious contenders, however, the champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and living legend Tom Brady will be the judge of that. The game will be played in Florida.
Bills vs. Chiefs: 2:40 p.m., CBS/Paramount+
Josh Allen has shown he’s up for big things with the Buffalo Bills, but he and his young squad will have to keep raising the bar if they hope to beat a team similar in many ways to the young Kansas City Chiefs.
The Bills showed in Week 5 that they have something to do the damage, but the “bosses” come in as heavy favorites for this crucial game as their defense has vastly improved since October.
