NFL Playoff Scheduling


Recommended Posts

Last year in the dome and I have been going to at least one game all season, but this season work has been busy. It's a good thing, but I haven't been able to catch one. Well I really want to catch a home playoff game now and both the wildcard and/or divisional rounds are up for grabs for me.

With that being said, I need to be able to plan accordingly. Does anybody have a clue of how the NFL playoff scheduling works for the wildcard and/or divisional round?

I went back the last two years and here's how 2015-2016 was scheduled.


Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016
(5) Kansas City, (4) Houston
(6) Pittsburgh , (3) Cincinnati 

Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016
(6) Seattle, (3) Minnesota 
(5) Green Bay, (4) Washington 


Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016
(2) New England, (5) Kansas City
(2) Arizona, (5) Green Bay

Sunday, Jan. 17, 2016
(1) Carolina, (6) Seattle
(1) Denver, (6) Pittsburgh

Here's 2014-2015:


Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016
(5) Arizona, (4) Carolina
(6) Baltimore, (3) Pittsburgh

Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016
(5) Cincinnati, (4) Indianapolis
(6) Detroit, (3) Dallas


Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016
(6) Baltimore, (1) New England
(4) Carolina, (1) Seattle

Sunday, Jan. 17, 2016
(3) Dallas, (2) Green Bay
(4) Indianapolis, (2) Denver


So there isn't any consistency from the last two years. Last year they did both AFC teams on Saturday and then the year before they did  a mix. I tried looking up if there was a change/schedule they followed for every other year, every year, every 3 years, etc. but wasn't able to find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
