And then there were eight.

The first round of the NFL playoffs is over, with all of the division champions winning their first-round matchups except for the Cowboys to host the divisional round of the playoffs.

The next wave of NFL action begins Saturday, with both No. 1 seeds returning to action after receiving first-round byes. The Titans will be the first team to kick off, when they take on the Bengals in a game that pits returning star running back Derrick Henry against the dynamic offense of Joe Burrow and Cincinnati. The primetime showdown will see Aaron Rodgers and the Packers return to the field to take on the 49ers in a rematch of the 2020 NFC Championship Game.

Sporting News has provided you with all the information you need to watch Saturday’s doubleheader, including channel, start time and match information.

What time are the NFL playoff games today?

Game 1

  • Match: Tennessee Titans vs. Cincinnati Bengals
  • Site: Nissan Stadium, Nashville, Tenn.
  • Start time: 4:30 p.m. ET

Game 2

  • Match: Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers
  • Site: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisc.
  • Start time: 8:15 p.m. ET

Henry is back for the first time since his broken foot injury in Week 8, and it comes at just the right time for the Titans. Tennessee hosts the Bengals in their first playoff game this season after earning the first-round bye. Despite Henry’s absence for over half the season, the Titans still finished the season as the league’s fifth-leading team. They will face a high-powered Bengals offense that has seen Burrow and his variety of weapons, including presumed Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja’Marr Chase, inflame opposing defenses in recent games.

Rodgers and the Packers struggled to pass the 49ers in the playoffs. Since taking over under center Green Bay, Rodgers is 0-3 against San Francisco in the playoffs, with the last meeting coming in the 2020 NFC Championship Game which sent the 49ers to the Super Bowl. But this Packers team is firing on all cylinders, with Rodgers playing at MVP level. In Rodgers’ final seven games of the season, he completed 72% of his passes for 1,929 yards with 20 touchdowns and no interceptions.
