NFL playoff bracket 2023: Full schedule, TV channels, scores for AFC & NFC games

The 2022 NFL regular season is entering its final act, as the 14-team playoff field will be finalized in Week 18.

NFL fans already had a pretty clear picture of which teams would be playing in the 2023 NFL playoffs entering Week 18. Eleven teams had clinched postseason berths before the action began on Saturday, so just three more teams and overall seeding needed to be decided.

Too, the winner of the Titans-Jaguars game on Saturday night was guaranteed to clinch a playoff berth. So, the only real mystery surrounded the No. 7 seeds in each conference.

The Patriots, Dolphins and Steelers were all in the running for the final spot in the AFC before Miami clinched it thanks to an 11-6 win over the Jets and a loss by New England.

Meanwhile, the NFC saw the Seahawks clinch the final playoff spot Sunday night. The Lions were eliminated by the Seahawks’ 19-16 overtime win over the Rams, but beat the Packers on “Sunday Night Football” to give Seattle the No. 7 seed.

There were also some questions about how the AFC would look with the Bills vs. Bengals Week 17 game being canceled after Damar Hamlin’s cardiac arrest. That had an impact on the race for the No. 1 seed and AFC North titles but ultimately proved to be of little consequence in any other area.

Now that the matchups are set, the 2023 NFL playoffs can begin. Below is a breakdown of everything you need to know about the NFL playoff bracket in 2023, including a complete postseason schedule, TV channels for all the playoff games and scores/results as they come.
