Eight teams remain in Super Bowl contention following the NFL Wild Card Round this past weekend.

At 4:35 p.m. on Saturday on NBC, the Kansas City Chiefs will be hosting the Indianapolis Colts in one of two AFC Divisional-Round Playoff games. Indianapolis defeated the Houston Texans, 21-7, in an AFC Wild Card game on Saturday.

Kansas City had a first-round bye, and they have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Colts have also won 10 of their last 11 games.

On Saturday night at 8:15 on FOX, the Los Angeles Rams will host the Dallas Cowboys in one of two NFC Divisional-Round Playoff games. Dallas defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 24-22, in an NFC Wild-Card game on Saturday.

The Rams had a first-round bye, and they have home-field advantage.

On Sunday, at 1:05 p.m. on CBS, the Los Angeles Chargers will travel to Gillette Stadium to face off against the New England Patriots, who had a first-round bye.

The Chargers defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the other AFC Wild Card game on Sunday, 23-17.

Then at 4:40 on FOX, the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles will be on the road against the New Orleans Saints, who also had a first-round bye, and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Philadelphia squeaked past the Chicago Bears, 16-15, after Bears kicker Cody Parkey’s potential game-winning 43 yard field goal attempt hit the up-right and out in the final seconds of regulation.

Eagles back-up QB Nick Foles is once again leading the way in the playoffs, with Carson Wentz being inactive due to a fractured vertebra.
