And then there were eight.

The first round of the NFL playoffs has come to a close, with all the division champions winning their first-round matchups except the Cowboys to set up the divisional round of the playoffs.

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

What time are the NFL playoff games today?

Game 1

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

Game 2

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

Henry is back for the first time since his Week 8 broken foot injury, and it comes at just the right time for the Titans. Tennessee hosts the Bengals in its first playoff game this season after getting the first-round bye. Despite missing Henry for more than half the season, the Titans still finished the season as the fifth-leading rushing team in the league. They will have to contend with a high powered Bengals offense that has seen Burrow and his variety of weapons, including presumptive Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja’Marr Chase, torch opposing defenses over the past several games.

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