Mandatory Credit: Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

We still don’t know who will be in the final playoff spot, that will be determined by the winner of the Philadelphia Eagles game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. We do know what the NFL Wild Card round schedule will look like though.

There were will be two games on Saturday and Sunday each.

On Saturday, the Colts will host the Chiefs in the first game of the playoffs. That will be followed up by the Saints traveling to take on either Eagles or the Cowboys in an NFC match up. The Saints have a better record than both the Eagles and the Cowboys, but they host the game as a division winner. The same thing happened to the Saints a few years ago when they traveled to take on the Seattle Seahawks.

The Chargers squeaked into the playoffs as the final AFC team. They’ll travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals for the first playoff game on Sunday. That will be followed by the San Francisco 49ers traveling to Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers.

Saturday:

Chiefs at Colts – 4:35 pm ET

Saints at Eagles/Cowboys – 8 pm ET

Sunday:

Chargers at Bengals – 1:05 pm ET

49ers at Packers – 4:30 pm ET
