    NFL Games Today TV Schedule | Super Wild Card Weekend

    The meat and potatoes of Super Wild Card Weekend kicks off today after Saturday’s postseason appetizer featuring the Las Vegas Raiders at Cincinnati Bengals and the New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills. Here’s the schedule for Sunday’s NFL games.

    Philadelphia Eagles (9-8) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-4)

    • Channel: FOX
    • Start time: 1 PM ET
    • Live stream:
      • Sling
      • Hulu + Live TV

      • YouTube TV

    After looking dead in the water around the midseason mark, the Eagles went on a tear. Philadelphia won six of their last eight games even while fending off a COVID breakout. Head coach Nick Sirianni pushed this team after a slow start with a heavy reliance on the run game.

    Philadelphia rumbled for a league-high 159.7 rushing yards per game this season. Conversely, Tampa Bay comes into this game boasting the league’s third-best rush defense, allowing just 92.5 yards per game. Yet another NFL edition of the unstoppable force meeting the immovable object. However, Philly’s offensive line might have the edge in this game. It has always been a health battle for the Eagles, and QB Jalen Hurts’ protection is all systems go.

    Hurts will need to make plays with his arm in this game if the Eagles want to win. Like the Washington Football Team last season, the Eagles will make this game a lot closer than many expect. Buccaneers QB Tom Brady will advance to the second round this time, but it won’t be a walk in the park. Having WR Mike Evans available should help make things more consistent for Tampa Bay’s offense.

    San Francisco 49ers (10-7) at Dallas Cowboys (12-5)

    • Channel: CBS
    • Start time: 4:30 PM ET
    • Live stream:
      • Sling
      • Hulu + Live TV

    While the underdog may cover in the early window, San Francisco wants to spoil the party. After an incredible 17-point comeback in Week 18, the 49ers have won seven of their last nine games.

    With a top-tier rushing attack, San Francisco can run over anyone when they are playing at their best. But the question remains: which 49ers team is going to show up today? The squad we saw in the first half of Week 18, or the club we saw in the second half? Dallas wants nothing to do with the team that won that game, especially given they struggle with consistency, as well.

    All eyes will be on LB Micah Parsons and DEs Demarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory to see if they can contain San Francisco’s run-heavy offense. 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo’s limitations have held this offense back and will ultimately cost the 49ers in the NFL Wild Card game today. This game is won by 3 points or less as fans are treated to a shot of NFL playoff nostalgia.

    Pittsburgh Steelers (9-7-1) at Kansas City Chiefs  (12-5)

    • Channel: NBC
    • Start time: 8:15 PM ET
    • Live stream:
      • NBCSports App
      • Sling
      • Hulu + Live TV

    Pittsburgh fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson sunk the last-second overtime field goal, and now the Steelers get to play the Chiefs. While underdogs may pose an intriguing threat in the first two games of the day, that probably won’t be the case here.

    If Pittsburgh had lost to Detroit in Week 10 instead of tying, NFL fans would be watching Justin Herbert on Super Wild Card Weekend. The Steeler’s offense puttered through the season, making just enough plays to get this far. Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger seems highly unlikely to have enough left in the tank to keep up with QB Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

    Rookie RB Najee Harris has provided so much on the ground this season, but Big Ben has to get more production than 225 yards on 40+ pass attempts. Kansas City’s Week 18 game against the Broncos was a wake-up call for the defense, and I don’t think they will take the Steelers’ offense lightly. Expect a decisive win today from the Chiefs in this game as Super Wild Card Weekend’s Sunday action wraps up.
