The 2022 NFL playoffs are set!

Following the first-ever 17-game regular season, the postseason has arrived for 14 NFL teams, which includes your AFC North-champion Cincinnati Bengals, who host the Las Vegas Raiders during Wild Card Weekend.

This will be the second full postseason the NFL has had since adding a seventh team to the AFC and NFC, which means only the 1 seeds get first-round byes.

Additionally, this will be the first-ever Super Wild Card Weekend, which features the first Monday Night Football playoff game. That will see the Los Angeles Rams hosting the Arizona Cardinals.

Leading the way in the AFC playoffs are the top-seeded Tennessee Titans, who won’t have to play until the Divisional Round.

The same is true in the NFC for the Green Bay Packers, who are the current favorites to win Super Bowl 56, according to DraftKings.

The defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers begin their quest for a repeat as the NFC’s 2 seed against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Kansas City Chiefs, who won Super Bowl 54 and fell to the Bucs in Super Bowl 55, open postseason play as the AFC’s No. 2 seed vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers, who miraculously made the playoffs after it appeared their season was over.

Here is what you need to know about this year’s NFL postseason.
