The NFL playoffs are around the corner as the Super Wild Card Weekend kicks off on Saturday. While the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles enjoy their respective byes, the remaining teams will begin the postseason bracket this weekend, which features a number of division rivalries and rematches of close contests from the regular season.

AFC playoff bracket

The AFC’s Wild Card round will feature a pair of divisional matchups, as the Dolphins travel to face the Bills and the Ravens meet the Bengals. Miami split the regular-season series with Buffalo, but they will be without Tua Tagovailoa as they prepare to start Skylar Thompson at quarterback. Baltimore will be without their franchise quarterback as well, as Lamar Jackson continues to deal with a knee injury, possibly setting up Tyler Huntley to make his fifth start this season. Two former top-five picks will go head-to-head in a quarterback matchup, as Justin Herbert and Trevor Lawrence make their NFL postseason debuts.

AFC Wild Card round

No. 2 Buffalo Bills 34, No. 7 Miami Dolphins 31
No. 6 Baltimore Ravens @ No. 3 Cincinnati Bengals
No. 4 Jacksonville Jaguars 31, No. 5 Los Angeles Chargers 30

AFC Divisional round

TBD @ No. 1 Kansas City Chiefs
TBD @ No. 2 Buffalo Bills

NFC playoff bracket

The Seahawks will look to pull off the upset over their division rival 49ers after San Francisco swept the regular season series between the two. Minnesota pulled off a 27-24 win over the Giants the last time they met, but New York has a chance to get revenge on a Vikings team that has a negative average scoring margin, despite what their 13-4 record suggests. The Cowboys ended their regular season with a disappointing 26-6 loss to the Commanders and will need to take care of the ball more efficiently as the Buccaneers look to capitalize at home.

NFC Wild Card round

No. 2 San Francisco 49ers 41, No. 7 Seattle Seahawks 23
No. 6 New York Giants 31, No. 3 Minnesota Vikings 24
No. 5 Dallas Cowboys at No. 4 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFC Divisional round

No. 6 New York Giants @ No. 1 Philadelphia Eagles
TBD @ No. 2 San Francisco 49ers
