NFL Playoffs format

The No.1 seeds in both the AFC and NFC will receive a bye in the Wild Card round, with the remaining division champions in each conference seeded No.2, No.3, and No.4 based on their regular-season records.

The next three teams with the best records in the conference are then allocated seeds #5, #6, and #7.

The No.2 seed will host the No.7 seed, the No.3 seed hosts the No.6 seed and the No.4 seed hosts the No.5 seed in each conference's Wild Card round with the winners moving through to the Divisional round.

There, the lowest remaining seeds among the Wild Card game winners will travel to face the conference's No.1 seed and the highest surviving seeds from the opening postseason round host the other team.

The same applies when the two Divisional round winners meet in the Conference championship game, with the highest remaining seed earning hosting rights.

The two conference champions then ultimately face off in the NFL Championship game. 

TV channel and how to watch the NFL Playoffs

Cable or satellite provider: If you have a cable or satellite subscription, you'll likely have access to all the major broadcast networks (CBS, FOX, ESPN, ABC, NBC) that will be airing the playoffs. 

Antenna: If you live in a good reception area, you can simply use an antenna to pick up over-the-air broadcasts of local CBS, FOX, and NBC affiliates that will be airing some playoff games.

NFL Playoffs streaming info

Streaming services: These services offer access to local channels and cable networks, often at a lower cost than traditional cable. Popular options include YouTube TV, fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, and Sling TV. All of these services will carry the major broadcast networks airing the playoffs.

NFL+: This direct-to-consumer streaming service from the NFL will stream every playoff game, including the NFL Championship. However, it doesn't currently offer local network channels, so you won't be able to watch all the pre-game and post-game coverage.

Peacock: NBCUniversal's streaming service aired one exclusive Wild Card game on Saturday, January 13th, 2024, in addition to simulcasting some other playoff games with NBC.
