NFL playoff bracket 2021: Full schedule, TV channels, scores for AFC & NFC games

The NFL playoff bracket for 2021 has taken聽its final shape.

The NFC East champion Washington Football Team claimed the NFC’s No. 4 seed and will host the Buccaneers in the wild-card round. The Chiefs and Packers got each conference’s lone bye. The Dolphins, Cardinals and Cowboys had costly Week 17 losses. And the Bills and Rams showed they can win even without their best players on the field.聽

Beginning Jan. 9, the NFL will show off its expanded 14-team playoff bracket (up from the usual 12 for the first time this season). Out of those 14, 12 will play in the first round thanks to a necessarily altered bye structure to wind up with the same number of playoff rounds. Additional teams mean two additional games, putting a trio of games on both Saturday and Sunday in wild card weekend.

Below is all you need to know about the NFL playoff bracket in 2021, including a complete postseason schedule, TV channels for all the playoff games and scores/results as they come.

When do聽the NFL playoffs end 2021?

  • Start date: Saturday, Jan. 9
  • End date: Sunday, Feb. 7

The NFL playoffs last about a month, starting with the wild card round, then the divisional round and conference championships before culminating in the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 in Tampa, Florida.聽

As is often the case, there’s a week off between the conference title games and the Super Bowl. Normally, the Pro Bowl is played in that gap, although there isn’t a physical Pro Bowl game being played in 2021.聽
