NFL announces AFC Divisional playoff schedule, including when Chiefs will play Jaguars


The Chiefs’ final home game of the season might be taking place on Saturday.

The NFL announced the full Divisional Round schedule, including the Chiefs’ first playoff game, on Sunday evening after the conclusion of the Bengals-Ravens game, won by host Cincy.

Because they had a bye week as the AFC’s top team, Chiefs players and coaches had the opportunity to watch the Wild-Card games from the comfort of their homes.

Jacksonville (10-8) will be coming to GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium to face the Chiefs Saturday.

If the Chiefs win, they will either play host to the Cincinnati Bengals at Arrowhead Stadium or play the Bills in Atlanta, which the NFL has already determined would be the site of that potential neutral-site AFC Championship Game matchup.

A loss Saturday, of course, would end the Chiefs’ season.

Here is the entire playoff schedule:
