Saturday’s nightcap has the NFC West Champion Rams hosting the Falcons. Two more games take place on Sunday as the AFC South Champion Jaguars host the Bills and the NFC South Champion Saints host the division rival Panthers.

The Eagles, Vikings, Steelers, and Patriots have all automatically advanced to the Divisional Round as the top two seeds in each conference. They will host the winners of this week’s games.
