NFL playoff schedule: Dates, times, TV channels for every 2024 postseason game

Playoffs? Yeah, we’re talking about playoffs. 

The 2023 NFL regular season is set to wrap up action on Sunday, and there are a few playoff spots — and divisions — still up for grabs. 

Entering Sunday’s slate, two playoff spots remain available in both the AFC and NFC. In addition, the winners of the AFC East, AFC South, NFC East and NFC South have yet to be determined, with home-field advantage in the first round still available for a select few clubs. 

This season has been an exciting one, with the field seemingly more open than ever. Outside of the No. 1 seeds in each conference, the Ravens and the 49ers, there aren’t any clear-cut favorites to emerge on either side, setting up what should be an intriguing postseason.

When do the NFL playoffs start in 2024?

  • Wild-card round: Jan. 13-15
  • Divisional round: Jan. 20-21
  • Conference championships: Jan. 28
  • Super Bowl 58: Feb. 11

For the fourth straight season, 14 different teams will make the leap from regular season to playoffs. Seven teams from each conference will take part in the postseason, with the No. 1 seed in each conference being the only sides to earn a bye week during the wild-card round. 

Once more, the NFL postseason has been shifted back a week from its former post. In 2021, the league decided on implementing a 17-game schedule. The practice has since continued in 2022 and 2023, pushing the Super Bowl back to the second Sunday in February rather than the first.
