The bracket for the 2023 NFL Playoffs is not set, but we know some of the matchups coming out of the 1 p.m. ET games to close Week 18. The Jacksonville Jaguars won the AFC South and their 9-8 record slots them into the No. 4 seed. They will face the No. 5 seed Los Angeles Chargers in the Wild Card round next weekend.
The Chargers are still playing the Broncos, but the Ravens loss in the early slate locked up the No. 5 seed for LA. We can expect players to rest as the team prepares for its opening round matchup. LA clinched a playoff berth in Week 16 after being eliminated from division title contention. They moved into the No. 5 seed after the Ravens lost to the Steelers last week.
The Jaguars clinched the AFC South title on Saturday night when they edged out the Titans 20-16. Jacksonville won five straight and six of seven to close out the season and secure the division title after Houston lost their final seven games.
